5/ 5

I hired Chef Pasquale Frolo for a surprise birthday dinner for my daughters boyfriend. Chef Frolo’s responsiveness to my initial questions left me impressed right away. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Based on the pics my daughter posted throughout the 5 course meal ( couldn’t stop raving how delicious everything was) to their feedback about how much they learned from him, I couldn’t have been happier. Chef Frolo has proven himself to be an entertaining, engaging and extremely talented chef. I highly recommend Take A Chef and definitely will use again. Bravo!

There is no maximum number of people, although a Private Chef service is usually carried out in a more intimate level along with friends or family, and usually in homes where space is limited. Even though there is no maximum number of people, generally the groups do not exceed 15 people.

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.

How much should I tip a Private Chef in Shelter Island?

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 10461 guests in Shelter Island, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
