Joey Darwish - Oct 27 2022

5/ 5

By far the best private chef I have ever used. Chef Gabe was very attentive and excited to carry out this meal. He communicated very effectively and was extremely flexible to the menu ideas and presented an excellent menu. The presentation was more than expected and the food quality was out of this world. I would definitely use him again and highly recommend him to other people, but only if you want to be impressed!

Mariana and her assistant were great! Every dish had its own sophisticated elements to it that made them delicious. Service was very professional and prompt. They also left our kitchen spotless when done. I’d happily use them again.

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.
