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.
