Chef Jayne was simply a delight. She prepared a culinary experience that left my fiancee and I speechless. Every bite had us wanting more. She is very accommodating and did her very best to make iur experience a phenomenal one. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute watching her create each masterpiece. She takes much pride in what she does and she is absolutely wonderful. Thank you Jayne for making my fiance's birthday amazing!

Amina and her mixologist/assistant Miles were amazing. The food was incredible, and they were delightful to have in our home. We are still reminiscing about the evening. It was such a treat. We are so thankful for all of the love and dedication both Chef Amina and Miles put into making this special birthday dinner for my husband a dinner to remember. We will definitely book 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.
