Darius cooked for me and my husband to celebrate his 30th birthday. What an evening we had! Darius was so friendly and relaxed he is clearly an expert in what he does. Not only did he prepare us amazing food, he shared his expertise with us and had great conversation. The food was exquisite better than any restaurant I have been to. I can’t thank Darius enough for such a wonderful evening, we will definitely be booking again!

Karen - Jun 21 2021

5/ 5

I have never previously had a private chef experience but hopefully it won't be the last time. Rob had put in a huge amount of prep. The food was amazing. He also struck the right balance between leaving us to enjoy our dinner party, and being engaging and chatting with us when we wanted to ask him questions (which you will want to do when the food is THIS good).

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.
