Espectacular la atención del chef. Luis Carlos y su equipo son responsables, atentos y cuidadosos. Es claro que aman lo que hacen. Les pedí mantener la voz baja y el menor ruido pos

Ingrid Céspedes - Apr 04 2019

5/ 5

Absolutely recommend. Just make sure the menu doesn’t include items you are allergic to or not to your personal taste as due to availability in St. Bart’s, items can get changed last minute. It’s totally worth it to stay in and leave the cooking and the cleaning to a food connoisseur. A great treat!

Mrs. Mari - Aug 14 2020

5/ 5

Chef Patrick was amazing! I would absolutely do this again! Chef Patrick presented a menu based on the themes we wanted and adapted the menu to allergies and our tastes. The food was delicious and the service was great! I can't recommend Chef Patrick more highly!

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.

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.
