5/ 5

Communication with Freddy was constant and he incorporated our feedback and desires into his proposal. Food quality was amazing as was the presentation and the back story on each dish as he detailed upon serving. He was on time, and left everything just as he found it. Would 100% have Freddy back to cook for us!

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.

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 Whistler?

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 2627 guests in Whistler, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
