" I've been very fortunate in the past to have had the opportunity to work with Chef Otto several times at both Charlie Trotters Restaurant in Chicago, and the Metropolitan Restaurant in Salt Lake City. From these experiences, I have found Chef Blum to be very creative in his use of flavors and textures, talented to an extreme and more passionate about food than most people I know. It would be my privilege as a chef to have someone of his caliber cook in my home, and I fully recommend you do the same if you have the chance."

We had the pleasure of experiencing several phenomenal meals prepared by Chef Otto Blum during our recent visit to Park City. Each meal was memorable and ranks as some of the best cuisine we have ever had. Thanks for making our trip to Park City even better than we expected.

Chef Blum just prepared an intimate dinner for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner. Absolutely superb. Scallop seviche followed by a sashimi course, a mango shrimp salad with a lemon vinaigrette, smoked tomato bisque, filet oscar with king crab legs, asparagus and truffled mashed potatoes, a meringue filled with chocolate ganache and raspberries. FANTASTIC. He was professional, brought all the dishes and cutlery, engaging and I highly recommend him. Was wonderful to stay in on a cold evening and be treated so royally.
Just wanted to thank you again for the outstanding job you did catering our business retreat. The food and your attention to detail were both excellent. I will be sure to have you back again next summer.
Chef Otto cooked breakfast twice for my friends and I on my ski-trip bachelor party in early 2012. The food and presentation was excellent. He was timely, polite, and did a great job of setting up and then cleaning up. There were no problems, I would highly recommend him.
Our ( New Year's Eve ) dinner was a big success. Otto made it easy from start to finish. He offered great suggestions for the menu and was happy to work with my ideas. The meal was well prepared, beautifully displayed, and delicious. He accomplished all that with a smile, and our house looked great after the clean-up !

"Really on point with the food, service and hospitality. Otto is the man for the job! The party was a huge success."
We just wanted to let you know that the two meals you prepared for us in our condo were better then any of the other meals we had when we went out for dinner. We might just hire you for the whole week on our next vacation to Park City.

Thank you so much for making our meal such a memorable experience. The 12 course omakase sushi meal was beyond our expectations. Our Family is from the Bay area and very experienced sushi connoisseurs and your skills and the quality of the fish was top notch!
Who knew that you could have such fresh Uni, Aji and Ankimo in a rental home in Utah.

Chef Otto is a master at making his meals a fantastic experience! The quality and taste are superb and the presentation is wonderful. Our ten course New Year feast satisfied all of us, even with our varied tastes. We look forward to Chef Otto's next creation!

I highly recommend Chef Otto Blum to anyone visiting the Park City area. This was our second year having Chef Otto into our house. With small children it is so hard to get everyone out to a nice meal. Chef Otto came to our house made something special for the little ones and did an amazing sushi and salmon dinner for us. It was the most relaxing and enjoyable night of the trip. We will be sure to have Chef Otto back to our home next year when we visit Park City.
We hired Chef Blum to provide an in-house dinner experience for 6 guests in Deer Valley, there to celabrate my wife's 39th birthday. Otto took care of everything, and made everything look easy. He was prepared, uber-efficient, totally respectful of our home kitchen, and a fantastic chef to boot. Each of the four courses (that we chose ahead of time from a suite of options) was delicious in it's own right. And perhaps best of all, Otto mingled easily with our guests whenever the moment called for it, and was a pleasure to have in our home for the evening. At the end of the night, everything was cleaned up and put away before we even realized it. Chef Blum's attention to detail allowed my wife to relax and celebrate her birthday with close friends, enjoy a fantastic meal, and not have to wash so much as a fork. Totally worth the investment. I can and will recommend this chef experience to anyone in the Park City area.
I just wanted to thank you again Chef Blum for making our company party such a memorable experience. The New England Clam Bake was a great idea, and people at the office are still raving about the Clam Chowder and the Maine lobsters that you had flown in. I will be in touch with you as soon as we settle on a date for our Christmas party. We are all looking forward to the Sushi, Seafood and Caviar buffet.
Thanks again for adding so much to my corporate retreat this past weekend. Your attention to details, preparedness and the quality of your meals were terrific! We look forward to having you prepare for us again...
Wanted to thank you for such a wonderful meal- everyone is still raving about it!
It was far and away the best dinner of the trip and we hope to have another Chef Otto experience our next visit to Park City! (Next time we will ensure the kitchen is a tad better equipped for you.)
I have had the pleasure working with Chef Otto at Snowbird Ski and Summer resort for about 5 years. Otto is a passionate chef, always looking for new trends, new products and always looking to deliver the best product & experience possible to his guest.
His creativity and talent has been recognized nationwide in 2010, when under his expertise, the Aerie sushi bar at Snowbird was named one the 10 Best Ski-Town Sushi Restaurants" by SKI Magazine.
If you are looking for an amazing meal, don't look any further, Otto is the right Chef for your event.

"Chef Otto Blum always does a great job for our executive meeting dinners for 15 - 20 picky eaters every February. He offers us a variety of menu options and we always find the food and service to be top notch. Everything from the short ribs and beef tenderloin to the baked mussels and sushi is as good as what you get in the finest restaurants--and he brings it to you in the comfort of your own home. With Chef Otto, we look forward to enjoying great food in a relaxed, family-style atmosphere."
