Chef Nigel did an amazing job keeping in touch and promptly replied to my messages. He tailored the menu to meet dietary requirements and also changed the cuisine to Thai fusion in honor of the chief guest’s preferences. Will highly recommended him for your personal experience.

5/ 5

We were fortunate enough to have secured the services of Chef Thomas Burnett to cater for our holiday in Queenstown in July 2021. Thomas planned, prepared and served 3 course dinners for my family of 5 for the week. Thomas sourced high-quality local and seasonal ingredients to create meals that were healthy and delicious. Thomas prepared restaurant standard meals and provided table service. We have 3 teenage sons and they were full of praise for the meals. He even prepared gourmet burgers for them one night. I have one son who is allergic to nuts and another who is vegetarian. Thomas was able to accommodate their needs. Thomas is an absolute professional and we appreciated his attention to detail. He was also a pleasure to have in the home. I would highly recommend Chef Thomas Burnett for both high end and family catering.

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.

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.
