About Billy

Hello, my name is Billy Joyce. I was born and raised in the Point Loma area of San Diego. In that beautiful beach community I developed my two greatest interests, surfing and cooking. As a kid I watched my grandfather cook constantly. He was a retired chef who inspired my interest in cooking and instilled in me the importance of fresh ingredients and being thorough in my preparation. I am a California Culinary Academy graduate. I have 25 years experience in the food industry. I started at the bottom and worked my way up. In these fun-filled years I learned the importance of customer service and hard work. As a waiter and bartender I learned the importance of customer service. I learned that no matter how busy I am, I will always have time to listen to my client and make every effort to make their dining experience a pleasurable one. Eventually my interest in cooking moved me into the kitchen. As a line cook and sous chef, I learned that hard work, food preparation, and fresh ingredients are all mandatory components of a great dining experience. I took what I learned and funneled all these key ingredients into my own business. Surf Side Cuisine was established in 2000. I was inspired by a friend who asked me to help him with a small appetizer party for 50 people. I began to cater small events on my own and invested my profits into building my business. In Surf Side Cuisine’s 12 years of existence I have met some wonderful and influential people, seen some spectacular homes, worked with the best food purveyors in town and developed my culinary skills. At the end of 2006 I wanted my business to take another step forward. I joined the American Personal and Private Chef Association where I received the information I needed to become a personal chef. As a result I am excited to announce that Surf Side Cuisine has taken another step forward and is now offering Gourmet Weekly Meal Plans, Private Dinner Parties and Over the Top in house catered events. I look forward to working with you as we continue to develop and positively affect our clients and our community. Some of my other hobbies include surfing, skateboarding, fishing, traveling, mentoring young kids, and giving back to the community.
