Get to know me better
South American chef, international cuisine
I am a Chilean chef who has lived for a decade in Mexico, and now half a decade in Australia. After cooking in busy restaurants for years, l began working as a private chef in 5 star villas on the Pacific coast of Mexico, and have continued ever since. I really enjoy the experience of working closely with my clients planning the perfect meal and event, and it makes me so happy to see them enjoying my food.
For me, cooking is...
Everything. I live, eat and breathe private chef-ing and you will always see me smiling when l am in the kitchen.
I learned to cook at...
My family home from a very young age, l can not remember not cooking! I have completed courses and cooked in five different continents.
A role model in the kitchen is...
I like Gordon Ramsey, because he is brilliant and a perfectionist, and if you watch his show enough (l have watched every episode) he actually really
A cooking secret...
Always with a smile.

Chef Fernando's reviews
Fernando and Maria were great! Everything was so easy to organise on my end and the night was really good. Fernando was flexible with the menu for what we wanted and the food was amazing! There was so much more than expected and it looked and tasted great. They were also both super friendly and professional in every aspect. Thanks for an awesome night!

Chef Fernando was amazing and has been so accommodating with changing dates due to all the lockdowns we have had here in Perth this year.
He was always contactable and was a pleasure to have cook for us. He prepared a delicious filling 3-course menu for me and my guests and chatted away about his life and experiences.
My guests had a great time and left very content (and full!).
We definitely loved having him cook for us and I would love to do this again and have mentioned to many of my friends what a great experience it was.
He was great & I must also mention his wonderful helper Niko who came along and helped prepare, serve and clean up afterward, leaving the kitchen clean and tidy. Both were fun to chat with and we look forward to seeing Chef Fer again so we can try his ‘Mexican’ cuisine next time!

Fernando and partner Mae (?) provided excellent service all around for my parent’s 50th anniversary. The food was fresh, well presented and sooooo good. And best of all, we didn’t have to do a thing (he even brought the serving dishes). In the lead up, Fernando was responsive to my queries and was happy to modify the menu when asked. I’d definitely recommend Fernando for a special at-home chef experience :)
