Our experience with Chef James was nothing short of exceptional. He did an incredible job and managed to impress both carnivores and pescatarians alike. We have lived in San Francisco for 15 years and are spoiled with the food scene there and in nearby wine country. We can arguably say that the dinner that Chef James prepared was one of the best we’ve had. He was able to pull it all off: timing, taste, presentation, and all with a calm demeanor and willing to chat a bit and answer our questions. We would use him again in a heartbeat but i have a feeling he’ll be booked. Get him while you can!

We loved Chef Keo. He was super friendly, great collaboration on the menu, accommodating with our requests, and great conversation while prepping for the appetizers. Loved the flavors and presentation, he left the kitchen cleaner than he found it and was very discreet. We had a wonderful experience!

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.

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.
