This was my first experience hiring a private chef and Chef Don set the bar high! Everything was perfect. The food, the ambiance and his professionalism was top tier. I definitely would recommend hiring Chef Don for your next private event. Thank you so much again, Chef!

Alexis Mcleadon - Mar 23 2022

5/ 5

Chef Pedro was amazing! He was extremely communicative and clear prior to our visit and we collaborated to develop a menu for the week that would work for our large family that had vegetarian and non-vegetarian guests. Each meal was distinct, delicious, and prepared with such love and care. We already told him we want a recipe book of all of the Dominican recipes he delighted us with! In addition to the food, he had such a kind and caring presence. We enjoyed every moment spent with him in the kitchen. I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting the Dominican Republic!

Roopal Lalaji - Dec 26 2022

5/ 5

Chef Monojit was extremely friendly and a joy to have during our vacation. This is a person we were with on a daily basis so having someone we were happy to see is always important! He was very open to cooking anything we requested. He made some amazing meals for us and was very flexible with making other options for those who wanted something different. We loved having him and his wife who assisted him and would be happy to have them 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.

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 7178 guests in Playa Grande, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
