Frederico was lovely - he was very professional and accommodating to all of our changes. He replied straight away and was so helpful. On the day he was punctual, the food was fantastic - it was very delicious and he made cute printed menu cards and decorated the table well. Presentation was amazing and he was truly very friendly. The sous chef was also so lovely and waited on us so professionally. They also left the kitchen spotless before they left. Both a great pair to have had and we would highly recommend them to everyone. I will be sure to book Frederico again for his delicious food, great company and friendliness. Thank you so much!

Una experiencias nueva . El chef ha sido muy profesional, cercano pero sin hacerse notar. La comida excelente. Sin duda repetiría.

Isabel Salgado Sardinero - Nov 17, 2019

5/ 5

La verdad, no tenemos palabras. Todo, y repito y recalco TODO, fue espectacular. Personalmente yo desconocía que en mi cocina se pudieran hacer esas cosas. Llegó clavado a la hora aún viniendo de muy lejos, fue muy majo y atento y siempre con una sonrisa. Nos explicó los platos, los preparó al gusto cuando había algo personalizable. Y que platos, que variedad. Incluso en la vajilla de IKEA de nuestra casa parecía que estábamos en un restaurante de lujo por la presentación... Cenamos hasta decir basta, y en todos los aspectos fue una velada única e irrepetible. Sin duda Jose Arévalo fue un condicionante claro para una noche maravillosa.

Foi um jantar inesquecível e todos ficaram admirados. O Chefe Bruno merece mais de 5 estrelas e ele conseguiu satisfazer igualmente os convidados vegetarianos, vegans e as crianças como também os que comem carne. Ficará como um sonho de Verão que certamente recomeçaremos.

I highly recommend this service. The dinner was incredible and every individual thing we were served was delicious. I was worried that we might feel strange with 2 people in our kitchen when we are in such a small space, but they made us feel very comfortable. We really enjoyed the whole experience.

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.
