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!

We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Lake Tahoe and hired a chef to cook our anniversary meal. Our chef was Cindy Mctammany and she was magnificent! She worked with us to creat our custom menu to fit both our dietary preferences (I am pescatarian my hubby is not). She created a beautiful fresh meal and even recreated our wedding cake almond + cream cheese frosting which was completely vegan and an absolute treat! Everything was cooked/prepared perfectly. She set the table for us and left our kitchen spotless. Take a chef services were so great and easy to use. 5 starts would definitely recommend to anyone and we will certainly use them again!

Valerie did an amazing job on a very short notice (I booked 24h in advance only)! She took excellent care of us (expat couple) from point A to point Z and everything was delicious. We had a degustation dinner setup, with some french flavor here and there, it was fantastic. I wish I could attach pictures we took during the diner, everything was perfectly presented and tasted heavenly good (we also loved the spicy notes along the way). I highly recommend her, and am already looking forward to book Christmas and New Year's eve with take a chef, as we won't be able to travel back home this year. K&M

You will be able to check in detail their professional profile and choose the chef/proposal you like the most.

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.
