Chef Predrag was AMAZING! He made my birthday so special and his cooking was out of this world!

Domenico is a superb chef and spoiled us with the delights of Puglia and the ingredients from his family farm and the region. We had also asked him to select some wine to go with his menus and he surprised us with some wines we would never have known about or picked. A brilliant evening - thank you Domenico!

Fanstastic experience. Chef Drazen was very pleasant and took pride in his delicious dishes including a wonderful seafood pasta, fish, semifreddo and a ginger apperitif. He made a very special evening for our family celebration of 8 adults at our villa near split. He was very professional and the kitchen was left spotless. Would definitely recommend him!

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