Mr. Jason White - Oct 9, 2018

5/ 5

Our experience with Timothy Bryce was better than we could have imagined. Tim was so personable and had us laughing the entire evening; it was like we had another family member in the house. He had us engaged in every step of his cooking process and had everything ready at the exact time he told us it would be.. not to mention, the food was absolutely amazing. I feel like I could go on forever about how great of an evening Tim provided for us, but I will just leave it at this: I would recommend Tim Bryce to anyone, and everyone, no matter the occasion.

I had the chef come for my birthday dinner and everything was perfect. The food was delicious and the chef was very polite and professional. Chef was extremely helpful when picking the menu for the night and attentive to my dietary needs. He left the kitchen spotless. I would 10/10 recommend Chef Ben and the Take a Chef service. Thank you for an amazing dinner!

Chef Anthony was AMAZING!! He made our birthday so special and what a fun experience trying a long based meal. One of my friends loves to cook and kept hovering asking questions and he took time out to teach her his techniques, he was very thoughtful. Our group really vibed with him and his assistant.

Melissa A Nyland - Oct 1, 2020

5/ 5

We had Chef Jason cook us an excellent Mexican meal. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. The kitchen in our rental home was very close to the dining room and we didn’t even know Chef was there. He left the kitchen spotless and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our dinner and experience. A great way to end our trip to San Diego!

Katie Gambill - Jan 31, 2020

5/ 5

I had pretty high expectations going in and was really excited to surprise my fiancé with an anniversary dinner, and this EXCEEDED those expectations. Rodolfo was such a gem and so wonderful to chat with. He answered all of our many cooking questions and provided helpful anecdotes about his own experience. We adored the stories he masterfully told. And then the food. Holy moly. Rodolfo’s cooking expertise is immediately apparent with dishes that are expertly cooked with beautiful presentation. His motto is to “keep food as simple as possible,” however this philosophy does not limit the complexity of flavors he produces with each dish. I cannot stop raving about this experience. He’s just incredible. Clean up was wonderful and left our Airbnb spotless (this experience would definitely be cool to do in your own home as well). He was on time, great about COVID-safety measures, and such a joy to be around. If you’re looking for a fine dining experience from home or a way to get inspired to cook new foods, this is the way to go!

Our experience with Chef Jacob and Carolina was amazing. Every course was better than the last. They were friendly, accomodating and fastidious. The meal was one of the best I've ever had! I would not hesitate to recommend Chef Jacob to others in the Palm Springs area looking for a special evening.

Chef John was amazing! From start to finish he came in and made the night. The dishes were incredible and we couldn’t stop trying a bit of everything before pushing on to our next dish. Chef John will forever be our Chef for every occasion!

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.

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.
