The moment you arrive at our site you will encounter a big “begin” button. This will be the beginning of your journey towards personalizing your Private Chef experience! We will ask for specific characteristics of your event such as: location, date, cuisine preferences, etc... and once you have provided this info, chefs from your city will send you menus that fit what you are looking for. Nothing is set in stone! You can change details with your chef all throughout. Once you reserve your prefered chef, all there is left to do is wait and enjoy.
Just so you know, we will exchange your contact information with the chef as soon as you confirm a booking so that you both can stay in touch! In the meantime, we will hold the payment to the chef until the experience is over with the intention of protecting you from any last-minute cancellation or misunderstanding.
You will have access to the profiles of all the chefs interested in serving you! You are welcomed to browse their biography, culinary photo gallery, and of course, reviews from previous guests. Use this information to choose the right chef for you! It is hard to think of a better judge for what you crave than yourself.
Of course you can! You have an internal chat with each of your prospect chefs. Feel free to ask as many questions as you need!
It is very unlikely for this to happen, but in case it does, don't worry! We will either refund you fully, or help you find a new chef and menu similar to the one you originally requested - as you prefer. For more detailed information about this subject please jump to our cancellation policy.
Customer reviews are a key aspect for Take a Chef since they allow us to obtain objective information from our guests about the chef. At the same time, reviews help future customers to choose the chef most suitably equipped for their event.The day after the experience, the customer will receive a feedback survey to evaluate the chef. Reviews always go public! These are meant to help the chef showcase their talent, and impove their skills.
