Jaime and his wife were very friendly and professional from the start. They listened to any food preferences we had and offered a fantastic meal plan. The food was out of this world- the most delicious food we have had. Great value for money. They also made so much food and packed the leftovers for us to eat the next day. They cleaned everything up and left the kitchen looking more tidy than when they started. His wife even sung a beautiful song for us at the end. I would recommend this amazing couple to everybody as they cook incredibly tasty food, and are very loving and friendly. Thank you so much for such a great experience!

Andres was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better chef and person. He made our night INCREDIBLE, genuinely couldn’t recommend him enough. The food was better than restaurant quality (and quantity!!) and he even threw in a few added extras free of charge. If we’re ever back in Mijas, we’d love to be able to have Andres back to cook for us again. Choose Andres !

100% recomendable. Rafa es aún mejor en person. Muy agradable, educadoy discreto. Además como parte de su trabajo fue cómplice para una sorpresa, ya que mi pareja no sabía nada de la cena que nos iba a preparar, y participó y ayudó como si la sorpresa la estuviese dando él. Mi valoración por su servicio no podría ser más alta. Este Chef cumple con las espectativas.

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.
