5/ 5

Jennifer was absolutely outstanding. This was our first experience hiring a private chef and I would give an unqualified recommendation to anyone. The food was spectacular, she was engaging but also left us alone. The cleanup was great - it was amazing to host friends and have almost nothing to clean afterwards!

Ryan Mcginn - Aug 17 2021

5/ 5

Chef Conrad was excellent. We asked for Thai food and he certainly delivered. He drove to our home after a snow storm. He was punctual with a positive disposition. Each course came with an explanation of the ingredients along with his personal travels to Thailand. He engaged in conversation yet didn’t hover. All of his creations were amazing, particularly the coconut shrimp and spring rolls. He left the kitchen neat. He brought several take out containers with him which he filled with leftovers including the sauces. We will definitely have him 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.

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.
