5/ 5

Chef Nenko was absolutely wonderful and did an outstanding job making my parents' 50th wedding anniversary dinner so special. He presented beautiful menu options from the start, was easy to communicate with and work with, even from a distance (he is in the US and I am in Europe). He was in consistent contact with me via Whatsapp, even indicating when he was departing for my parents' house and when he arrived. My parents were thrilled by this gastronomic experience and have been raving about chef's food non-stop since their dinner. Chef went above and beyond to make this dinner exceptionally special down to the very last detail. I cannot recommend him or his services enough. If you're looking for a true culinary experience, delivered at the hands of an expert and professional, look no further.

Katy - May 18 2021

5/ 5

We hired Troy Dye to prepare a 4 course dinner for my sister's 50th birthday. We couldn't have been happier. The food was amazing. Even the salad had a ton of flavor and the crab bisque impressed even this group of Marylanders (we tend to be snobbish about crab preparations). The beef tenderloin and vegetables were so very creative and delicious that even the picky kids loved it. The banana pudding was out of this world. They were prompt, professional, and left my kitchen cleaner than it was when they arrived. I highly recommend this company.

Sara Fleming - Aug 26 2020

Chef Will was truly an amazing experience. His dishes were unique, flavorful, and thoughtful. He is wonderful to work with, flexible and accommodating to your needs and wants. I would HIGHLY recommend him to my friends, family, and strangers alike!

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 Summerville?

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 1428 guests in Summerville, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
