A Private Chef always prepares the menu at the client's home, as it is an inherent part of the experience.

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.

Every Private Chef gives the utmost importance to the freshness of the ingredients used in their menus.

Therefore, the freshness of the ingredients is one of the key elements of 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.

Each guest can freely decide the tip he/she wishes to give to the chef, as it is up to their discretion. On average, based on the tips given by 15713 guests in Palatine, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
