Yes. If you prefer to have your meals delivered instead of cooked in your kitchen, your Tasker can take care of your needs. Just make sure that you discuss this arrangement with them beforehand. You can ask your Tasker if they can deliver your meals for the day or the entire week. Don’t forget to store them properly to avoid food spoilage!
We highly recommend you to be home during the first few cooking sessions of your home chef. This is so you can walk your home chef through your kitchen, orient them with the do’s and don’ts, and ask or answer questions. This also allows you to see how your home chef works in the kitchen. Once comfortable, it’s your prerogative whether you want to be home while your home chef cooks or not.
As much as possible, your home chef can make sure to minimise leftovers, especially the perishables. Your Tasker can start doing this during the meal planning stage, where they can ensure that the quantity of the groceries is enough for your meals. But in case there are leftovers, your Tasker can find a way to use those for your next meal or snack.
Having a home chef prepare and cook your meals doesn’t depend on the size of your kitchen. Once you and your Tasker have discussed your food preferences and meal plan, you can talk about the equipment needed for your dishes to be prepared. Usually, running water, a stove, and a counter cop can be enough, depending on the meals you want to be cooked.
Your home chef can provide their own knives and a kit of cooking essentials, but they would also need to use cooking equipment found in your kitchen, especially those that are bulky and difficult to transport. These include your stove, oven, pots, pans, and other necessary equipment. Make sure to go over special care instructions for your equipment, if there are any.
Your home chef would love to accommodate all the different needs and preferences of the people in your household. But of course, it would depend on each person’s dietary restrictions and food allergies how much overlap you have. If you find that all of you have more commonalities, your Tasker can work with that. Otherwise, it would be best if you avail a personalised home chef service for each one.

Having a home chef means enjoying wholesome, balanced meals freshly prepared by a professional in your kitchen! Getting someone to prepare home-cooked meals can save you from the hassle of doing it yourself. You can have a chef at home for a single meal or occasion or establish a long-term relationship where your home cook and chef comes to your home and prepares meals several times a week. Here are a few of the things your home chef can do for you:
Usually, private chef services begin by having a one-on-one session. Here, your personal chef will take time to learn your food allergies, dietary requirements, and favourite dishes. This way, they can whip up delicious and healthy meals personalised to your tastes and preferences. Feel free to tell your private chef about your likes and dislikes, whether it’s pork, red meat, milk, mushrooms, shellfish, or nuts, to make sure every meal is according to what you want and need!
To make it even easier for you, you can also get someone to pick up your groceries and pantry essentials! If you’d like to have a meal made with fresh seafood, green vegetables, and ripe fruits, you can hire a Tasker to deliver fresh ingredients and food choices straight to your doorstep.
You’ll never run out of meal ideas because booking a chef means they can do the meal prepping for you! Whether you’re into adventurous or straightforward dishes, professional chefs can work their magic in the kitchen. They can plan your meals even if you’re on a strict diet to lose weight or simply keep yourself healthy! From vegan and keto to a low-calorie diet, hiring a private chef ensures that your nutritional needs are met.
Why not hire a personal trainer to stay active and in shape to further supplement your healthy eating? After all, exercise and nutrition go hand in hand to achieve your fitness goals!
One of the best benefits of having a home chef is that your meals will be prepared at the comfort of your own home. Your Tasker can prepare your meals one at a time or have them pre-cooked and stored in your freezer. All the preparation and cooking will be done inside your kitchen, so you can oversee the entire cooking process and make sure it’s done according to your preferences. You don’t have to worry about the mess after! Your Tasker can see to it that your kitchen is clean and spotless, and they will leave nothing but the delicious aroma of freshly cooked food. The only thing you have to do is to enjoy your home-cooked meal!
If you’re the type who doesn’t consider a meal to be complete without your dessert, you can also get someone to bake your favourite treats, like cookies, brownies, and cupcakes! When you’re starving and a home chef isn’t available, you can also have a nutritious takeaway delivered to you by a Tasker!

My partner and I are looking for a chef to cook meals for us in the evening. We are both pretty busy and want to be spending our time doing other tasks. We are both focused on eating good healthy food(we go to the gym alot) so Uber Eats every night is not an option for us. We would be looking for meals on 4 nights per week with pretty big portions. Not huge meat eaters so vegan and vegetarian options are welcome. Happy for you to use our kitchen or if you want to cook from your own an deliver.

Hi there! I am looking for a Chef to prepare and cook dinner for my family (2 adults, a toddler and a baby who eats purée food) perhaps 4 nights per week (maybe more if all goes well). I would like this to be done in our home preferably- We are based in Darling Point and enjoy fresh simple foods with a lot of salad and vegetables. Vegetarian or fish based meals are our preference. We are a very friendly family, so as well as great food I would love for the right person to also have a friendly warm personality. I have put the number of hours per day required as 3 but this is open for discussion
Highly recommend- punctual, polite, professional and the food was amazing and fresh- just perfect! Michele is a lovely person with a friendly and warm personality too.
