5/ 5

Chef Cihan did a wonderful job of proposing an initial menu, working with me to accommodate our dietary restrictions (including a pescetarian, a mushroom allergy, a "no steak" requirement and 8 yr old daughter) and then delivered on an amazing meal! He was prompt, fully prepared, engaging (but not intrusive) and thoughtful. The courses were as described, delicious and well prepared! When everything was done, he did a wonderful job cleaning up. Thank you, Chef Cihan! We will be inviting him back again!

Chef Darnell blew our minds! The best culinary experience we’ve ever had. The food was beautiful to look at and was so, so delicious. We will definitely do this again. We can’t wait to do this again but next time we are going to just let Chef Darnell use full creative license and choose all the dishes! Can’t wait!

We hired Take a Chef for a family celebration dinner and it was a fabulous experience. The food was terrific, Chef Nicolas made himself at home in our kitchen and went above the expected. The chef was engaging but not intrusive. It was a perfect evening, creating some more exceptional family memories. Gerald & Judy

Frequently asked questions

Below you can find the most common questions about Private Chefs in Edmonton.

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 Edmonton?

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 1638 guests in Edmonton, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
