"Chef Alba cooks from her heart. You can taste her passion for food and flavor in every single dish she makes. And every dish is absolutely, undeniably delicious while still being incredibly healthy."

-Matt, El Segundo



Chef Alba grew up in the kitchen. Whether helping her El Salvadorian Great Grandmother make tamales (200 at a time) or her Filipino Step-Father prep daily meals, she always loved cooking. It's why she left her 8-year career in banking to instead pursue her passion in feeding people's souls and stomachs. She studied and received her degree in the culinary arts from world-renown Cordon Blue in Pasadena, even cooking for the top chef herself, Julia Child.


For the last sixteen years, Chef Alba has worked for universities, restaurants and hotels, catered events big and small, and operated as a personal chef. This past year she began her meal prep and delivery program for local community residents. She also manages a successful catering business. 


As a mom of two girls, Chef Alba is focused on making healthy food taste delicious. With a diverse cultural palette and specializing in all types of food, her goal is for her customers to feel better for what they've eaten (her daughters included). Her passion for cooking should be evident in each bite.

She is the rainbow chef! She brings color and diversity to all the foods she makes. My gut is nourished in so many ways and I feel satisfied, healthy, and loved. Thank you so much.

Chef Alba is the most talented chef I've ever met. Her talent for combining flavors and colors with nutritional requirements and desires really is second to none. I would (and have) use Chef Alba every time, for any occasion, no matter how large or small.

A friend recommended Chef ALba after I had tried two other meal delivery services. Her meals are delicious! The portions are great. There's lots of variety. I don't have any dietary restrictions, but I appreciate that the meals are gluten- and dairy-free. For what I would normally spend on lunch anyway, I am treating my body to healthy, home-cooked meals! And it's so convenient!

 I was paying for daily meals from Freshly - small portions, frozen, limited menu. Chef Alba's meals have organic, local ingredients, have big portions and are delivered fresh to my fridge. Beyond the well-balanced meal, she thinks about the accessories too – homemade cashew-based sour cream, dressings, and roasted nuts.


When a chef can meet your team's gluten free, dairy free, vegan AND Keto dietary needs all in one delicious catering order, you've hit the jackpot. Very affordable. Highly recommend.

My favorite thing about Chef Alba's cooking is that she combines flavors that I never thought would go well together and it always feels like I enter a new world when I eat her food. Not only is it great tasting but the presentation is just beautiful and appetizing. Thank you so much Chef Alba! 

Robin, El Segundo

I never get tired of Chef Alba's cooking. Absolutely everything is delicious and beyond anything I imagined. Each meal is better than the last. So glad I met Chef ALba!

During tax season (I am an accountant), Chef Alba kept me fed. She introduced my tastebuds to healthy food. I actually hadn't eaten that many vegetables in a long time. I loved the rainbow of colors in each meal she prepared. It got me in a good mood and I never felt heavy. I was able to get a lot more work done until the wee hours of the night that season.
