5/ 5

We booked Chef Jagger for my wife 40th bday. I really wanted this to be a special occasion for my wife and my children - Chef Jagger didn't disappoint and he far exceeded my expectations. It was a GREAT night. Not only was the food amazing, but the entire experience from when he walked in, until he left was fantastic. Chef Jagger came exactly when he said he would, was great with my kids, and my wife and I learned about different kinds of food - even how to cook some of them. If you want a fun and engaging evening, with delicious and very interesting food, I highly recommend Chef Jagger. We have hired Chefs before and this was our best experience.

What is the maximum amount of people allowed for a Private Chef service?

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.

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.

How much should I tip a Private Chef in Cancún?

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 16429 guests in Cancún, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
