Our experience with Chef Alan was fantastic from start to finish. You might think it would be weird having someone cook for you in your house, but Alan's friendly and personable demeanor made the experience really enjoyable. Alan produced for us a 7 course taster menu, in which every mouthful was absolutely delicious and I could not find any fault with it. Alan came prepared with his own crockery and cutlery which really added to the experience and definitely added a feeling of being in a restaurant. There was not a thing I would have changed. I would definitely recommend Alan (and have already done so) to anyone thinking about having a private chef.' On the scale of 1 to 5 it would be a firm 5. Thanks again Alan, we really did have a fantastic time.

Andreas was a great chef and a lovely person. His food was delicious, we felt like we were dining at a 5-star restaurant. The portions were very generous and every dish was presented beautifully. He also left our kitchen spotless. Once the dinner was over, it was as if he was never there. I would highly recommend him!

5/ 5

Katerina, assisted by Jurie, made my mum’s 60th birthday the most special of days. From the start Katerina was a pleasure to deal with. She created the most fantastic menu, catering to many different tastes as well as ensuring there were delicious vegetarian and coeliac-friendly options included. In the run up to our party, she answered any questions incredibly quickly and kept in touch regularly. On the day itself, Katerina and Jurie arrived on time and were both so friendly and personable. They found their way around our kitchen easily and prepared an incredible meal in no time at all. Each course was fantastic and not a single plate had food left on it. When they were finished they left the kitchen spotless. I couldn’t recommend Katerina more and we will definitely book again.

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.

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.
