We had the most amazing experience with Chef Jansen . First time having someone over and cook for us . Could not have asked for a better Chef to share the experience with. We had other stuff going on during dinner and he was so patient with us . He even kept our food warm while we where doing something else. Anyone looking to be spoiled will definitely get there money’s worth . Thank you Chef Jansen

We used Take a Chef for a unique experience to celebrate my wifes birthday. It was wonderful getting to know Chef Kristina and her assistant Amanda. They were full of personality and made us feel very comfortable. Both Kristina and Amanda are very talented and well travelled. The presentation and taste of the food was excellent. Overall our experience with Take a Chef was very positive and highly recommended.

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.
