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!

Probar la cocina del Chef Gabriel ha sido una deliciosa experiencia italiana con una mezcla de comida auténtica, casera y con la máxima calidad en sus productos. Presentación suprema que nos hacía trasladarnos a una verdadera casa en Italia. Un delicioso juego el no saber el menú hasta el final, sorprendiendo con cada plato maridado con diferentes vinos canarios aconsejados por el Chef previamente que hicieron más increíble la cena. En definitiva, una gran experiencia que recomendamos y repetiremos seguro.

Joao and Marisa exceeded our expectations! Both punctual and extremely professional. Joao introduced himself and then Marisa as his right arm, which I thought was very respectful. My wife and I were a little nervous since we were a same sex couple on our honeymoon in a foreign country. We immediately felt at ease once they arrived, and we could not have been happier with the food selections. Joao takes great pride in his food and presentation, it is clearly his passion. They even left the kitchen cleaner than when they arrived! It was a meal and experience we will never forget. I've already recommend this service to my friends and family!

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.
