My husband -Mr Antisocial, was apprehensive to have a chef come to our house to prepare his birthday dinner during Coronavirus. Chef Simon was personable, extremely polite, and respected my husband’s uncertainties. Chef Simon was patient as my husband, stacked and stoked the fireplace, causing the expected time of starters to be delayed. From the moment the first dish arrived, my husband was thoroughly enjoying this unusual and very special experience. All the dishes had complex components that brought out individual flavours and blends, bursting with enticing pleasure. Our chef was passionate about his craft. Sourcing locally, considering the farmers through drought and economic hardship, bringing flavours alive, and promoting ‘food that could speak for itself’ in our local community. Before dessert arrived, my husband was planning our next feast and also who we would invite along for this experience. I’d say the evening was a massive success. Thank you so much Chef Simon. Well done!!

Tristan was such a pleasure to have. As a plant based chef he shared the same values that we do which is rare to come by. All of his dishes were cleverly planned and executed. He really took a plant based menu to the next level and I have no doubt that his cooking would be appealing to most people. We were also super interested in how he was preparing the meal and it made for such a nice experience to watch and chat to him while he was cooking. Thank you Tristan, we will definitely be seeing you again!!

Does the Private Chef cook at my house?

A Private Chef always prepares the menu at the client's home, as it is an inherent part of the experience. However, depending on the complexity of the menu, the chef may prepare a mise en place before going to the client's home, as some dishes take several hours to prepare and it would be impossible to execute all the steps at the client's home.

Can I cook along with the Private Chef?

Absolutely! Usually, there are always several food lovers among the diners who take the opportunity to share some time with the chef, learn some tricks in the kitchen and the step-by-step of each of the dishes on the menu. For those diners who really want to get hands on, they can of course join the chef and cook!

Are the ingredients for a Private Chef service fresh?

Every Private Chef gives the utmost importance to the freshness of the ingredients used in their menus. The main difference between a restaurant and a private chef is in the personalized treatment of each diner. The chef personalizes the menu, and based on that menu, makes the necessary purchases to develop the menu chosen by the customers. Therefore, the freshness of the ingredients is one of the key elements of a Private Chef service.

Are drinks included in a Private Chef service?

Drinks are not included by default. However, you can reach an agreement with the chef in order to add drinks as an "extra" to the menu proposal.
