What can I say? Chef Ron cooked for us for my Dad’s 60th birthday and he really made our day perfect. He was so helpful in the lead up, discussing various food options. The menu we agreed on was fantastic and prepared beautifully. My family still talk about the lobster pasta dish and applewood smoked beef! If you are considering Chef Ron for your dinner party, I would highly recommend. Thank you Chef!

We had such a wonderful experience with Chef Sylvie. We hired her to prepare our family's Thanksgiving dinner and she is so warm and friendly, she felt like part of the family almost immediately. She was super responsive to any questions, arrived early on the day of, and stayed for the duration of the meal to serve and clean. Sylvie and her husband are lovely people and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

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.
