The oeverall experience of our guests with Take a Chef in Kamáres has received a score of 5!

I would highly recommend Chef Panayiotis and the Take A Chef service.the service was easy to use and offered us a variety of menus and prices from 4 different chefs. We chose Panayiotis as he gave us the largest selection of food and was in the middle of the price range, we also liked his commitment to the food, we were not disappointed. It is not a cheap option but is well worth the money. We had a lovely, varied meal with dishes we may not have tried before in the comfortable surroundings of our holiday home, no driving needed to enjoy an amazingly cooked delicious meal. Panayiotis was charming and attentive and flexible enough to fit in with putting two children to bed during the meal. An excellent experience and one I would highly recommend.

5/ 5

I had booked Chef Nick for my friends' hen and he was amazing! His team was in contact with me before during and even after the experience. He came earlier during the day to assess the kitchen in case he needed to bring anything else which was very organised of him! The food was served at the time requested and the portions were very generous that we had enough for breakfast the next day! He was able to accommodate to the varied dietary requirements in the group even being able to cater for gluten free too! Overall I would happily recommend chef Nick to anyone-you would not be disappointed!

Vaishnavi Gnanakumaran - Jul 29 2019

5/ 5

Chef Ioannis and the woman serving us that day were amazing. From choosing the menu to setting the table and serving us the courses to the clean-up, it was seamless and professional. The food was outstanding. I'm still dreaming of some of the courses he made, everything came out in a timely fashion, the food was top-notch, and we had an absolutely wonderful dinner party. I highly recommend highering Chef Ioannis and his team.

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!

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.
