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.

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.
