From his sublime turkey chili to his unique chocolate potato chip cookies, Marcel ‘s creations combined with his good looks and winning personality make him a World Class Chef. He’s my go to guy whenever I have a special occasion and need a chef to impress!

Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President at CBS Entertainment Los Angeles CA

Marcel Cocit has worked for us off and on for the past 10 years. He is absolutely fabulous! His cooking is interesting and creative, which is especially difficult when dealing with a family of picky eaters. He is quick and clean, and just a joy to have in the house. Our children love hanging out in the kitchen with him. While he is accomplished at cooking for a family of six, he is equally capable of cooking for the largest dinner parties. He does it all with the same easy going and happy nature!

Laurie and Jon Feltheimer, LionsGate Entertainment Santa Monica CA

Marcel is a pleasure to work with. On several occasions we turned to Marcel’s Catering because of their fantastic selection of food, their professionalism and their ability to be prompt. Marcel himself is quite the chef, always prepared to offer a selection of menus to our starving artists. Highly recommend for any occasion.

Nick Timmerman, Project Manager at Pixo Entertainment Los Angeles CA

I met Marcel years ago at a cooking class. Immediately after we ate, I cornered him in the kitchen to get his info and have since hired him to cook for my most important events. Large parties or small, his food is so delicious and is always prepared beautifully. My guests are always so happy and complimentary of his meals. Thanks to his warm, fantastic personality and great sense of humor, he is by far my favorite chef for hire.

Christina Zilber, Founder of Jouer Cosmetics Los Angeles CA

Chef Marcel Cocit has catered many events in my home. His passion and love for cooking comes out in his food. His style of cooking in my own words would be simple, healthy and full of flavor. Marcel’s personality and charm is a key ingredient to his success! All my guests were very impressed with him and his staff. I would highly recommend Chef Marcel to cater your next event. Oh and make sure he makes one of his desserts that’s filled with love!!!

Chef Marcel Is hands down one of the best caterers I have worked with. His food is incredible and his flexibility and creativeness seems to be without end. He will only make your events all the more memorable.

Matt Gutshall, Rhythm and Hues Studios Los Angeles CA

I hired Marcel as an on camera chef for a web series and he was amazing. His passion for food and life came through on camera and in his recipes. Since then I have hired him for recipe creation, catering and on camera work. All elements of his work are superb… and tasty.

Barry Gribbon, Executive Producer for Web and Cable TV Los Angeles CA

Marcel is an experienced on camera chef with an amazing sense of new and exciting culinary works. He will give you the rationale behind his creation du Jour. Marcel is engaging and has a terrific following already. His food is delightfully healthy as well.

Strath Hamilton, CEO TriCoast Studios Culver City CA

I’ve never been a client of Marcel’s but I had the good fortune to be his neighbor for several years. His commitment to his catering engagements is at the highest level as is the quality of the food he prepares. Everything is delicious, varied and made with love.

Jennifer Wirth Symington, American Honda Finance Corp. Torrance CA

Marcel is an excellent chef and really makes an event come alive with his sense of humor and charm. His food is delicious!!

Kris Kelly, Realtor at Gibson International Los Angeles CA

Marcel is one of my favorite caterers! His food is delicious while still being health conscious. He uses fresh ingredients and will always work with your company to meet whatever budget constraints you may have. He’s extremely reliable and punctual. He and his team put a lot of effort into not only preparing great food, but making sure the presentation and distribution of the food is handled with care. I would hire Marcel again to cater for company functions and recommend him highly. He also makes the best mac and cheese I’ve ever had.

Jaimie Lee Jota, Senior Digital Production MGR for Digital Domain Los Angeles CA

I have had the pleasure of enjoying Chef Marcel’s catering for the last 8 years since he first started catering for Digital Domain. As a tired artist working 10-12 hour days, 6 days a week, what you eat for lunch and/or dinner can really make or break your day. Walking in to find Chef Marcel with a smile on his face serving up the delicious concoction he thought up for the day always took the edge off. So when I saw that Chef Marcel is now also catering for the new visual fx company I am working for, Pixomondo, I was excited. I would be able to once again enjoy his mac n’ cheese, rosemary roasted pork and caprese skewers! Chef Marcel will always bring you great food and excellent service.

Chad Finnerty, Animation Supervisor at Pixomondo Los Angeles CA

Chef Marcel catered desserts for a Holiday party I threw in Santa Monica. The brownies, cookies, everything were absolutely delicious and everyone wanted to know who made them! Needless to say, they were gobbled up completely with no leftovers! Marcel is a creative, thoughtful, organized and cheerful chef, a total joy to work with! His wife Jeannie is wonderful, too, and they make an amazing team. You can feel the love in their energy, the food, the way they interact with their team, etc. Their positivity, professionalism, incredible food and overall joyful thoughtfulness make them a catering company I'll call on again! I recommend Chef Marcel and Jeannie with the highest regards to anyone looking to throw a casual dinner party, high-end event or special occasion. A class act paired with awesome food, they are the whole package!

Mara L Santa Monica CA

Chef Marcel and Jeannie were the caterers for our fundraiser in LA.Even though they are married to each other, the fact that they are also "married to food" added a most intimate touch to the event. The care they have for each other translates into the care that they put into their work. The proof is in the delicious flavors of the food they served. Every single dish totally hit the spot! They are FANTASTIC and I would recommend them enthusiastically and wholeheartedly!

John B Los Angeles CA

Chef Marcel and Jeannie always do an amazing job for our parties! From superlative food to outstanding service, they make it easy to throw the perfect event. You won't find nicer people, to boot!

Meg F Marina Del Rey CA

Marcel & Jeannie are fantastic. The passion they have for delivering an exceptional experience and food is delightful. What Amy and I enjoy about Marcel is the attention to detail; delivering visually beautiful dishes that also taste delicious.

Ed W Marina Del Rey CA

We loved having Chef Marcel cater our private event! He was a delight to work with and his personality is the best. Several guests gushed about him to the host! Besides this, he was easy to communicate with, was upfront about all included costs and estimates, and took the time out to do a walk-thru of the venue. Incredibly professional without the ego. Highly recommend as he is truly talented and everyone loved him.

Without Exception Films LLC Beverly Hills, CA

Marcel has catered several events at our home, both large and small. His style of cooking is fresh, healthy, creative and flavorful. At every event he catered our guests were incredibly impressed with the quality of the food. Just as importantly, Marcel, Jeannie, and his staff are a pleasure to work with and accommodating in every way. Marcel is a talented chef, with a warm and engaging personality that makes every event less stressful and easy going. Simply, Marcel is the best!

Jody K Los Angeles, CA

Married to Food catering was one of the first catering companies that I reached out to during the earlier stages of planning my event. I was drawn by Chef Marcel's previous work experience, along with the mouthwatering food options on his website. For those of you who have experience with planning events, you know that it can be stressful at times, especially when working within the limitations of a budget; however, Chef Marcel made planning my office holiday party a lot less stressful. From start to finish he was very accommodating to my budget and needs. He was also very helpful in providing me with planning suggestions, as this was the first time that I’ve planned an event of its size alone. He was very flexible with changes, and very understanding and patient during the times where things were a bit bumpy. His level of professionalism, was amazing, and he was also very personable and pleasant which made planning feel less like a stressful task and more enjoyable.

The day of the event his staff were very professional, which I expected considering how professional he was. They ensured that all our needs were taken care of, and even went the extra mile on many occasions. During the event Chef Marcel and his staff even made sure to pop in and check on things to ensure that everything ran smoothly. The food was beyond what I expected and full of flavor. Unfortunately, because I was running around most of the time I didn’t have the opportunity to take a moment to enjoy all the menu items, however, the food was definitely the topic of many conversations the next day. Chef Marcel also provided a bartender who was very professional.

Overall, I would recommend Married to Food Catering to any and everyone, and it would be an honor to have the opportunity to work with Chef Marcel and his team again! You will not be disappointed with Married to Food Catering!

Akilah F Los Angeles CA

Chef Marcel and Jeannie are outstanding caterers as well as incredible human beings. They have done dozens of events for us in Malibu. Every event was more fun than the last. The food is always incredible. And they have become just part of the family. If you want a remarkable experience be it an intimate dinner or a large event from the greatest people and caterers in Los Angeles, call Chef Marcel. You will be so pleased.

Russell K Marina Del Rey CA

Marcel Cocit is an amazing chef and a consummate professional. He catered a graduation party for us in Los Feliz that was a huge success. Every detail was thought of and executed to perfection. The mouthwatering bites were delicious- the Ahi Tuna Tartare, the Mini Vegetable Spring rolls and the Italian Quesadillas are just a few of the highlights from this memorable party. I recommend Marcel Cocit highly and cannot wait for an occasion to hire him again!!

Margaret C Los Angeles CA

My husband and I had Chef Marcel Cocit catering at our home for a cocktail reception for around 30 people. It was absolutely amazing and we were so happy for having him at our event. Our guests complimented the amazing delicious hors d’oeuvre all night long. Chef Marcel is a very nice person with positive energy and his food is extraordinary good. Everything is so fresh, delicious and with a very beautiful presentation. Him and his staff are very professional and they take care of all the details and make it memorable. I can’t wait for the next event with his company catering it.

Simone D Redondo Beach CA

Marcel and his team catered our company holiday party last week and did a PHENOMENAL job! We couldn't have asked for a better catering service. They were incredibly easy to work with, and rose to the challenge of any obstacles or issues that came up. I would definitely say that they far exceeded my expectations. People are still raving about the incredible food from the party around the office. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a seamless and hassle free catering experience. I will definitely be using them again for future events! They were fantastic
