Heather Lea is one of the Central Valley’s premiere personal chefs. In 2004, she founded Elle’s Custom Catering (named after her daughter Elle), specializing in intimate dinners and nutritious family meals for busy professionals on the go. Since then, she’s expanded into events ranging from weddings to corporate luncheons and elegant dinner parties. Deborba specializes in “keeping it fresh,” creating menus that feature seasonal produce and local products that showcase the Valley’s rich agricultural heritage.
“I like to add a personal touch to all of my events by meeting with each client and getting to know them and their tastes. The personal touch helps me to get the “feel” of their event and allows me to create a custom menu just for them.”
For Heather, art truly imitates life, she doesn’t just cook professionally, she loves to entertain at home, hosting elegant dinner parties for close friends and family. Despite the rigors of running a thriving business, she is also a full time mother and home maker, who loves nothing more than spending time with her two children.

Heather and team were awesome! Heather is such a sweet, bubbly, talented cook and business owner. She met with us at my parents house, toured the property, provided suggestions, and customized and created an amazing menu for us! Her and her team are very detailed, hard working and take great pride in their work. Plus, their food is incredible! Definitely not your typical chicken and vegetables (unless that is what you choose). Their homemade mac and cheese was a hit from both myself and husband! I think we could have eaten the whole bowl. Hopefully, we will be able to use Heather and her team in the future :)Sent on 09/27/2016

he stars speak for themselves, this is a stellar business! They have professionalism, heart, and serious talent. They took the time to get to know us and customize our entire wedding menu to reflect us as individuals as well as our story as a couple. We cannot give enough kuddos to Heather and her entire staff for making our wedding a delicious culinary experience for us and our guests. They are all a fun bunch too, you can't go wrong with hiring Elle's. =)Sent on 06/29/2016

Heather and her team did the most phenomenal job catering our wedding!!Sent on 03/25/2015
From the start Heather listened to our ideas and planned out a beautiful menu for us, completely custom to who we are. Food is my love language and I cared deeply about giving my guests a great meal, Heather executed that and even made my dream of having the food served "family style" happen- and it happened beautifully. The food was amazing, from the passed hors o'oeuvres to the sit down family style meal, everything was cooked to perfection, warm and full of flavor. Every guest we've encountered after our wedding has brought up how great the food was, "that lasagna!!" they'll say. Her staff were so friendly and professional, the head of house was sweet enough to find my husband and I after our ceremony, before we joined the party, to give us something to eat and drink.
Throughout our planning, Heather was very professional and quick to respond and answer any and all our questions. She always had everything taken care of and was one step ahead. Very trustworthy and very sweet.
We could not have been more pleased with Heather and her team at Elle's Catering, I will recommend her to any and everyone.
We are so grateful, thank you.
caleb + kristin wait.
