We had the good fortune of connecting with William Turner and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi William, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Although there are numerous factors to my success, Client Relationships has to be number 1. Without my clients, my brand doesn’t exist. And the report I build with my clients is priceless. Many of us become close friends. Whether it’s a bachelorette party, or a high profile client in town with their family, they know I care about them and they are going to get the best possible food and service I can provide. In business it really helps if you genuinely like people and I do.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’d love to, my primary business is Private Chef William Turner. I launched it in Jan of 2018 and it really exploded on the scene. With that I go in to peoples homes and prepare 5 star meals on demand. Cooking multiple styles of cuisine with a southern creole flare. My clients are welcome to interact and watch or they can relax and be served. Its a ton of fun for everyone and extremely popular with Scottsdale’s bachelorettes coming to town. As well as anniversaries, birthdays, micro weddings and pretty much any special occasion. Aside from chef services we also have bar tenders and serving staff ready to take any get together to the next level.

As if that wasn’t enough to keep me busy I recently launched my Media Company, Cooking On Camelback so stay tuned for what’s next with that. At my core I am a creator whether that’s in the kitchen or studio and I’m ecstatic to be doing what I love. People always ask is being a private chef is as fun as it looks on my IG and the answers, YES!!! Maybe even more fun, awesome people, great food, set in this beautiful desert oasis, However its also a ton of work and very stressful at times.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love going to the Quarter in North Scottsdale for food and shopping. I also like to hike and there is none more iconic in Arizona than Camelback Mountain. But honestly this answer changes with the seasons.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
When I first launched my Private Chef business Lori Cordova offered me a spot at the Farmers Market North Scottsdale, to do cooking demonstrations. It was huge to my exposure in the north Scottsdale area. That’s when I truly fell in love with the area. Thanks to Lori.
