A dedicated foodie all his life and a businessman by education and trade, Chef Lamont Perriman successfully combines these passions in his entertaining and cooking. Born and raised in Oakland, CA - Lamont’s lifelong appreciation for food began at a young age and was inspired by his mother and father and cultural background.  "I always wanted to eat first, and the best way to do that was to help in the kitchen. Food has always been a part of my family life and what eventually led me to this industry," says Perriman. "I love how food is innately conversational and brings people and cultures together."


Chef Lamont has enjoyed a successful career in hospitality. He has always had a natural organic ability within the culinary arts and has honed his skills professionally in various high-end food venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, focusing on locally sourced ingredients with farm to table flair. Chef Lamont jumpstarted his culinary career by running a kitchen in a local wine bar in Oakland. Most recently, Lamont was a Culinary Expert and Resident Chef for Williams-Sonoma. He simultaneously expanded his personal and private chef services including individual and group cooking lessons, cooking demonstrations, and private catering, while starting his company MPCE. 



Amanda has developed a passion for the food and hospitality industry through a lifetime of travel and exploration. Growing up in Boulder CO, Amanda learned to enjoy high quality, fresh, organic cuisine, and to appreciate the unique settings that various venues have to offer.  She obtained a degree in Interior Design, with the intent of pursuing hospitality & restaurant design, however, was always drawn back to the trenches of the food and beverage industry.  


Amanda has managed several popular Bay Area venues, specializing in menu planning, sales, event production, branding, marketing, and building successful teams.  In addition to having expertise in food and beverage management, Amanda has extensive experience as a corporate event producer working with some of the most prestigious Bay Area companies.   Amanda and Lamont joined forces to create MPCE in 2016.
