Private Chef FAQ's



Do you provide private chef service? 

Yes! We have a selection of Chef Curated menus or can create a fully custom menu for you and your guests. Our private chef will cook a five-star meal right in your own home.

How does a private chef service work? 

We work with you to devise your perfect menu. On the day of your dinner or event, one of our chefs comes to your home and cooks a beautiful meal in your kitchen for you and your guests. 

What is the minimum guest count for a private chef dinner? 

There is no minimum guest count for our private chef service. 

How much is a private chef dinner? 

There is a per-person price that is based on your chosen menu. In addition, there are service fees required for the chef and the number of servers you require. 

How long does a private chef dinner last? 

The length of the service will depend on the number of courses and the flow of your event. As a general rule of thumb, chefs will arrive an hour and a half prior to your chosen meal service time. Most dinners last about two hours. 

Do you need access to a kitchen? 

Yes. Your private chef will require the use of your kitchen. We bring the necessary prep equipment but require the use of your stove, oven, and refrigerator to make your meal. If your kitchen has limitations, let us know and we will do our best to work around them. 

What is the difference between a private chef and private event catering? 

We do both private chef service and private event catering. The primary difference is in the guest count. Anything above 20 people is typically considered a private event. If your event is over 20 people, we encourage you to look at our Catering Menu. 

Do we provide plates, glassware, and cutlery? 

We do provide serving equipment such as platters and serving utensils. However, we do not provide plates, glassware, or cutlery. Chefs will typically serve on the dishes you already have at home. However, if you require these items, please let us know and we will be happy to advise. 

Can you provide alcoholic beverages? 

Yes. We can provide wine, beer, and batched cocktails. 

Can we provide our own beverages? 

Yes, you are welcome to provide your own drinks, whether alcoholic or non-alcoholic.
