Jay's cooking was a highlight to our girls' weekend in Scottsdale! His food was incredible and he was so accommodating to food allergies and intolerances in our group. Not only was his cooking exceptional, but he has a great sense of humor and easy-going demeanor which made the entire group feel comfortable and at ease throughout the night. We would ask Jay to cook for us again in a heartbeat!

Chef Zoia and her assistant were absolutely fabulous! They were on time and got straight to work. She allowed us to hang out while she prepared salad and appetizers. The presentation of everything was delicious!! The food was phenomenal. I didn’t expect anything high quality for an in home sushi night and the quality of the fish blew me away. Not to mention they cleaned everything and left the kitchen spotless!! We had the best time and the fullest bellies!

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!

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.
