Our Chef, Jason Meyer, was on time and professional. We felt very comfortable with him in our home. All of our dishes were delicious and presented very well.

Chef Khy was phenomenal to work with! Short notice and all for a New Year dinner. Everything was far more than what we anticipated! A diverse selection was presented to us in her proposal which immediately gave excitement in advance. She was personable, punctual, and professional throughout the entire experience. Her passion and flare comes through in her food. What was delivered during the 4-courses was layered with an indescribable array of flavors that prompted us to inquire about every dish. Chef Khy was enjoyable!

Chef Meika exceeded my expectations. She was super nice, very thorough and was punctual. My baby's birthday surprise was beyond perfect as she was the one who suggested that I tell him to come over to so that he could be a part of the experience. Her explanation of the dishes were thorough and the presentation was amazing. She made great use of my space and was so so sweet and professional. I loved the fact that she was very clean and sanitary. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to get a personal chef in the Dallas area. Bravo! I'm so glad that I found Take a Chef.

Chef Nikki created the perfect birthday dinner for 2 at home! Her enthusiasm for the meal was apparent through her careful preparation, explanation of every dish and incredible presentation. We loved the homemade ricotta and special attention and time she put into the braciola. She even left us with some great leftovers and Sarcone's bread (a personal fave!). Thanks again, Chef! Excited for our next dinner.

Chef Stephen was great! He came on time, and went right into prepping our dinner. He was friendly, professional and his meals were delicious. He cleaned up everything after he left, and even let us keep any leftovers. I would absolutely recommend Stephen and Take a Chef to everyone!

Chef Brandon was fantastic! We really enjoyed having him in our home! He was pleasant and professional and took us on a food journey instead of just serving us a meal. The dishes were beautiful and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend and would definitely hire him again!!

The dinner last night was well beyond expectations. Chef Jason was great. Every course was delicious. The courses were the right size, neither too big nor small, so you were always anticipating the next one. Jason served us at a nice pace. We loved Chef Jason, not only was he an excellent cook, but he was also a genuinely nice guy. We had good conversation with him all night and we insisted he sit with us for dessert. It was a great idea and a very memorable night.

Gabriel was awesome and exceeded our expectations. We hired him for our 4 year wedding anniversary dinner and every single course he prepared for us was delicious!! We proposed a specific menu and he was able to deliver and execute on both courses we requested. He also suggested an appetizer and desert that to compliment our menu and both of those selections blew us away. Gabriel was also very attentive, knowing when to progress onto the next course and offered explanations on each course as well, highlighting the ingredients and how they were prepared. He offered great conversation for the atmosphere as well. We highly recommend and plan to use him again in the future!

Khyania was absolutely fantastic. From the initial request, Khyania sent me several menu options for me to select from. She was excellent at receiving my requests and helping me form the perfect menu. Communication was easy and clear. The night of the dinner, she was punctual, smiling and an absolute pleasure. Her food was just delicious. I had a four course meal and the first two courses, my partner and I listened and learned. Then we were able to have some private time while the entrees were being prepared. My experience was simply perfect and I can't wait to use her in the future for other events.

What is the maximum amount of people allowed for a Private Chef service?

There is no maximum number of people, although a Private Chef service is usually carried out in a more intimate level along with friends or family, and usually in homes where space is limited. Even though there is no maximum number of people, generally the groups do not exceed 15 people.

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.
