Rob was amazing! Polite and engaging from the start, he made the perfect menu for our date night based on our feedback. He was extremely responsive leading up to the night, and more than delivered in the kitchen! The food was incredibly delicious and interesting, and he moved at our once and made sure to explain everything. Highly recommend Rob!!

Our Chef, Jason Meyer, was on time and professional. We felt very comfortable with him in our home. All of our dishes were delicious and presented very well. We really enjoyed our evening, since we could not go to a restaurant at this time! Chef Jason made our evening very special! We would do this again!

Jeanne Castellani - Jan 25 2021

5/ 5

We had the pleasure of working with Gordon for a special Valentine's Day dinner. From initial proposal through making modifications to the menu for some dietary restrictions and preferences, Gordon was quick to reply and provided great suggestions. The whole process was very simple - agree to menu and time and then sit back and get served an amazing, 5-star meal prepared in your kitchen. Gordon brings everything he needs and was completely self-sufficient in our kitchen. The tomato & avocado bruschetta was so delicious, the bang bang shrimp cooked perfectly, the fresh pesto he prepared was outstanding, our sea bass cooked to perfection and the desserts were to die for. All the food was outstanding with his sauces and seasoning being both unique and special. We recommend Gordon to anyone looking to have an amazing, special and stress-free meal!

I brought Christopher in after I proposed to my (now) finance and he really helped to make the night that much more special. He was really helpful with coordinating everything, great to have in the kitchen, and the food was AMAZING!

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.

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 The Hamptons?

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 9058 guests in The Hamptons, guests usually tip 14,72% of the total amount to their Private Chef.
