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.

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.
