Chef Greggory and his assistant Kierra were AMAZING!!! First off, they were so fun and really engaged with the group a ton. Kierra was a hoot! She cut up and made her special bourbon punch lemon aid which was a hit by the way. Second, the food, I mean what can't I say about the food. It was to die for! Chef Greggory created 2 special meals for us including a spin on Italian the first night and steak and lobster the second. For a chef to come into a rented mountain home, use a grill he is not familiar with and cook 20 filets to perfection is true talent. Everyone raved about how perfectly cooked the steaks were. Kierra prepared beignets and a molten chocolate cake and my goodness that was good! I would highly recommend this team again and I hope to have Chef Greggory at another event. Thanks for all the hard work!

I can’t speak highly enough about Chef Cory. Chef Cory was personable, friendly, very accommodating, and interesting to speak with. The food was magnificent with each course exceeding all expectations. If it wasn’t impolite, we would’ve licked the mussel sauce off the plate! We have dined in many places over the years and this was the best meal we’ve ever had. And to top it off, the kitchen was left spotless!!!!! This was truly a dinner to remember for many years to come. Thank you Chef Cory!!!

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.
