Chef Dave was personable, professional, and most importantly, the food tasted amazing.

Jeff Mann - Mar 22 2021

5/ 5

I have been a restaurateur for 25+ years but did not want to use one of my chefs. It was a risk well taken. Matthew is a fine chef. His food knowledge, enthusiasm and taste was out of this world. I had 10 foodies at my home for a Surprise Bday party. I think I was the most surprised at what a fine meal we had. Many of the guests commented that it was one of the best meals they have ever had anywhere. Matt took the time to build a menu that suited the crowd. He also took the time to meet up. He stayed in touch prior to the evening to coordinate details of our night. We even all made gnocchi with him. (a special cooking class treat) I I would like to tell you about my favorite course but literally every course was better than the next; ending with the belle noir dessert which I can still taste. I will use this service again and hope that Matt will be available.

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.

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.
