We had an amazing family dinner! The food was delicious, the service attentive, and the experience unique. Our family comes with many restrictions and preferences and everyone went to bed satisfied and happy. From menu design to communications before the event, and finally to prep and service, everything was perfect. Highly recommended!
Friday night chef Markus Pössenberger from www.takeachef.com prepared an an excellent 4 course Italian meal for 4 people. He arrived at 3:30pm and began preparing the meal which was served at 1830 pm as requested. My guests arrived unexpectedly early and chef Markus prepared pita crackers with dip as an extra for us to munch on as we sipped wine and talked. The meal was delicious, it consisted of an appetizer of flamed antipasti and Italian cold cuts, a starter of homemade truffled ravioli with Gorgonzola sauce. The main course consisted of tender stripes of bison meat on white wine risotto... the dessert was a savory tiramisu. All the food was well balanced beautifully presented and mouthwatering. Everyone enjoyed the meal and chef Markus. He was extremely personable, took time to explain each service and answered all our questions concerning the various courses. He cleaned up all the dishes and pots and pans before he left at 9:30. Pm. It was my first time using take a chef it was an easy to navigate website I received two menu options within a few hours and selected chef Markus proposal. If you want an at home chef experience takeachef is an excellent choice. I cannot speak for their other chefs but I can garante that you will have a great evening if you choose Chef Markus.

Chef Alec was awesome. I booked the evening as a surprise for my wife’s birthday and he helped me create an awesome custom menu and give her a memorable gift she won’t forget. I’d highly recommend him to any friend of mine.
I wanted to surprise my guests and I certainly did. The mushroom risotto and truffle was spectacular.

Georgios was provided an amazing service and food. It was easy to arrange for him to come to our renter Airbnb and he was able to accommodate a short notice changes from us. The food was excellent traditional Greek, in particular the Mediterranean Veg Balls. He was also Very polite and nice to have around. I recommend him strongly.
We were not sure at first if having a chef at home would be uncomfortable, but on the contrary, Elena was super discreet and attentive from the get go. A great experience.

Finally, a plan other than just going out to the same old restaurants. A uniquely original experience, we are already thinking of when to have the next one.
