Pablo was amazing. He and his son were so engaging. They were quiet to start and went right to work, and then we all starting interacting with them because a big family just does that! The meals were wonderful and very filling. Delicious choices that we planned on together so everyone’s diet needs were met! He even got some candles to help celebrate a few birthdays. We would definitely recommend Pablo again. I am looking forward to another trip and also recommending him to others.

5/ 5

Our experience with Chef James was nothing short of exceptional. He did an incredible job and managed to impress both carnivores and pescatarians alike. We have lived in San Francisco for 15 years and are spoiled with the food scene there and in nearby wine country. We can arguably say that the dinner that Chef James prepared was one of the best we’ve had. He was able to pull it all off: timing, taste, presentation, and all with a calm demeanor and willing to chat a bit and answer our questions. We would use him again in a heartbeat but i have a feeling he’ll be booked. Get him while you can!

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.

The main difference between a restaurant and a private chef is in the personalized treatment of each diner.

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.
