Nyssa did a great job in the kitchen preparing pizzas to order for a 21st/ 50th birthday party, we had in excess of 100 guests and the night was successful thanks to Nyssa's assistance. Nyssa also went around the party filling garbage bags when the kitchen had its quiet moments. Great job, punctual, polite and presentable. Thanks again !!"

"An awesome job carried out by an extremely nice lady. We had ideas on a menu for our engagement party and Mo tied it all together for us and made it happen. She even made the effort to meet up with us a week or so before the party to discuss the menu. She arrived on the morning of our party at 7:30 and left that night around 9pm plus one of her friends was good enough to drop by and lend a hand. The food was brought out on time and we received compliments all round. A job well done and highly recommended!! "

Top Chef related questions

What does a personal chef do?

Personal chefs work with you to cook and create meals specifically for your needs (usually in your home). They’ll custom plan a menu based on your guest numbers, preferences, dietary requirements, and occasion. 

What’s the difference between a private and personal chef?

A private chef will usually work exclusively for one client - typically working in-house and preparing all meals for the day. However, a personal chef usually works with a range of clients, catering to different needs and requirements.

Can a personal chef cater for my small party?

Yes. Personal chefs regularly cater for parties, whether in your home or at a venue.

How will my personal chef cater to specific dietary requirements?

When planning your menu and meals, your personal chef will ask about dietary requirements, allergies, and intolerances. They’ll choose foods accordingly and carefully avoid cross-contamination if cooking a variety of meal options.

Do personal chefs require any specific training or qualifications?

While it’s not a set requirement, many personal chefs come with qualifications and training - usually an apprenticeship and years working in commercial kitchens. 

How much does it cost to hire a personal chef?

You’ll usually need to budget around $120-$340 when hiring a personal chef through Airtasker. But the cost will depend on the type of occasion, the number of meals, the number of guests, any ingredients required, and how long it’s likely to take.

What does a personal chef experience include?

The personal chef experience is, ultimately, whatever you want it to be! You can hire a private chef on an ongoing basis or as a one-off. Here are some of the most common personal chef services and what you can expect from each:

In-house chef

Want fresh, delicious home-cooked meals, but don’t have the time to cook them yourself? A private chef at home will cook in your home either once-off or regularly. Your private chef will either cook meals fresh or prepare a batch of meals for the week. They’ll find out about your dietary requirements and menu preferences, before proposing some options and purchasing the right ingredients. They’ll get set up in your kitchen and prepare the meal(s) fresh and ready to eat. Before they go, they’ll clean up your kitchen and wash any dishes so all you’re left with is the delicious, ready-made meal.

Meal prepping and planning

If you’re pushed for time throughout the week or struggling to come up with meal ideas, a personal chef can help you get ahead with meal prepping and planning. They’ll plan your meals for the week based on your requirements and taste preferences. They can prepare the meals in your home or prepare them in their own kitchen and deliver them to you once they’re ready. Your private chef will purchase all the ingredients, prepare the food, and clean up once they’re done. By the end of their cooking session, you’ll have fully prepared meals ready to go in your fridge or freezer.

Dinner parties and catering

Hire a private chef to cater for your dinner party and instead of spending the night in the kitchen, you’ll get to hang out with your guests! Your private chef can cater for dinner parties at any size - from small couples dinners for two, up to big family gatherings of 30 or more people. Most chefs will prepare some of the food before they arrive at your home or venue, then prepare the final touches before serving up the food to you and your guests.

Cooking lessons

Want to learn how to cook something fancy or expand your repertoire with a new cuisine? You can book a personal chef to run cooking lessons in your home. That way, you’ll get an immersive, hands-on experience - and get to eat the food you’re making afterwards. Your chef will organise the menu plan and recipes, as well as any ingredients needed. They’ll prepare the kitchen area and pack up afterwards, too.
