My husband and I are forever grateful that we chose Chef Toya for our 25th anniversary dinner. Due to COVID concerns we chose to dine in our home. The food, her presentation and professionalism was outstanding. We will not hesitate to refer her to family and friends. Take A Chef should consider it an honor to have her on your team.

Chef Woody is a class act - I trust him and will continue to support/refer him to my peers in the government and military spaces. The food was extremely fresh, the presentation was nice and everyone enjoyed their experience. You won't be disappointed - five stars!

Chef Nigel was amazing. He went over the menu ahead of time and made adjustments accordingly. He was super polite and very professional. I am pretty sure he left my kitchen cleaner than it has ever been when he was finished.

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.

Are the ingredients for a Private Chef service fresh?

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.
