Chef Tanja was superb on every level! As a christmas present, we organised Chef Tonja to cook a french meal for my in-laws and 4 of their friends. It was a raving success! She really went above and beyond to make the experience for all of the guests fantastic. She was lovely, and her food was incredible. The creme brulee was a huge winner, but absolutely everything was delicious. So grateful for her attention to detail and for helping everyone have an experience they will not forget any time soon!

David was absolutely brilliant. We had him over for a birthday dinner. He gave us plenty of options to find dishes that we would all enjoy and was very attentive during the evening. He even waited until our kids went to bed to serve us so we could enjoy a meal without disruption! Would recommend this to anyone thinking of hiring a chef!

What is the maximum amount of people allowed for a Private Chef service?

There is no maximum number of people, although a Private Chef service is usually carried out in a more intimate level along with friends or family, and usually in homes where space is limited. Even though there is no maximum number of people, generally the groups do not exceed 15 people.

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.

How much should I tip a Private Chef in Wollongong?

Each guest can freely decide the tip he/she wishes to give to the chef, as it is up to their discretion. On average, based on the tips given by 9790 guests in Wollongong, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
