5/ 5

It was a last minute idea for a special occasion. I found TakeAChef easy to use and had 4 responses immediately. Chef Kahya turned our tiny galley kitchen into a 5star restaurant! His dishes were exploding with flavour and textures. Everything worked out and recommend Chef Kahya and TakeAChef to anyone looking for a unique experience.

Chef Mike was a pleasure to work with. In terms of preparation, he modified the menu to suit the needs of the guests. The lobster bisque and crab cakes were exceptional. We would definitely recommend him for future events. Superb job!

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.

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.
