Tableware and glassware are not included. Gratuity is entirely up to the guests' discretion.

To hire a Private Chef just select a date, number of people, let us know your food preferences and intolerances and share with us a few details about your kitchen. In a matter of a few hours, you will receive four tailor-made menus and will be able to review the chef's profile, reviews and pictures of their dishes. You will also be able to speak directly with each chef through the messaging area on the platform and ask for menu modifications, price changes, and generally discuss any questions you may have.

You will be able to check in detail their professional profile and choose the chef/proposal you like the most.

There is no maximum number of people, although a Private Chef service is usually carried out in a more intimate level along with friends or family, and usually in homes where space is limited. Even though there is no maximum number of people, generally the groups do not exceed 15 people.

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.

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!

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.

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 342 guests in Sri Lanka, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
