Emily Cline - Dec 27, 2020

5/ 5

We wanted to do something special for our daughter's 37th birthday. We usually go to one of the nicer restaurants in Cincinnati. With Covid precautions in place, dining out was not an option this year. On Wednesday morning I contacted Take a Chef. Chef Marcus Johnson emailed me on Thursday, and we decided on a menu. By Friday evening we were enjoying a fabulous dinner in our own dining room. Lobster bisque (beautiful presentation), crab cakes on fresh greens, braised short ribs with parmesan mashed potatoes and asparagus, and Madagascar vanilla creme brûlée for dessert. Chef Marcus presented then explained each dish. Friendly yet not intrusive. Everything about the evening was just perfect. Highly recommend !

We contracted Take a Chef for our parents' 50th wedding anniversary since their original party was postponed due to Covid. Chef Alvarez's proposal sounded perfect for them and he was very easy to work with. The report from our parents was that he cooked with unique ingredients and explained how he was preparing each course. They absolutely loved the entire experience. We were thrilled to have provided such an interesting experience for their celebration that was not only delicious, but also very memorable.

Chef Shawn exceeded all of my expectations! Our dinner was a birthday surprise, so there was much riding on Shawn’s preparation and delivery. He was incredibly flexible and thoughtful with his menu, and every course was delicious. We had a few things that were new to us, that were just amazing. We typically always go out for a very nice dinner, especially for birthdays, however since we could not this year, Chef Shawn brought that dinner to us. We would certainly hire him again!

Chef Ross was wonderful. He was willing to work with us to make our menu perfect for our family birthday party, and his food was delicious! He and his partner were courteous, professional, and clean.

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.
