Top Private Chef related questions

What should I look for when hiring a private chef?

When looking for a private chef, hire someone who meets your specific needs. It doesn’t matter if the chef has three Michelin stars for an Italian restaurant if you prefer Japanese cuisine. Once you put up a task and start to receive offers, take your time to go through Tasker profiles, reviews, and ratings. These will give you an idea of their experience cooking for previous clients and if they are suitable for your task.

Can a private chef accommodate special requests?

Most private chefs on Airtasker can accommodate special requests. This can be anything from using organic ingredients and doing live cooking preparation to plating preferences. If you’re looking for catering services for 20 or more people by a private chef, make sure to book ahead of time and include your specific needs and requirements when putting up a task on our platform.

What’s the difference between a chef and a cook?

A cook is defined as someone skilled in food preparation and cooking. Meanwhile, a chef is a cook with professional training in cooking for commercial settings, such as restaurants, hotels, and cruise ships. They have taken the time to work with other master chefs to learn the craft. They can also have higher training in specific cuisines like French, Spanish, Indonesian and more. Some can also be certified in methods of cooking like vegan or halal.

Do chefs need to have a diploma?

Most chefs have taken up formal education to learn more about their craft. However, even if they have a diploma, they still have to go through hours and hours of training in an actual kitchen. It is also possible for someone to not have a degree in culinary arts but be a chef after years of experience working in commercial establishments or interning for a head chef.

How can I pay when hiring a private chef on Airtasker?

Hiring a private chef on Airtasker is hassle-free, even up to payment. Airtasker Pay benefits both customers and Taskers on our platform. Once you have accepted an offer, your credit card or e-wallet will be charged the agreed-upon rate. However, this will only be released to your Tasker when you confirm that they have already completed the task.

Will I need to prepare my kitchen when hiring a private chef?

Private chefs can cook in your kitchen with the ingredients that you may have. However, if you’re too busy to prepare, you can always include the grocery shopping and clean-up in the task. For those with smaller kitchens or simply prefer to have the food brought to their home or venue ready to eat, you can ask your Tasker to prepare the meals in their home and arrange pickup or delivery instead.

What do private chef services include?

When opening up private chef jobs on Airtasker, you can fully customise the task depending on your need. You have control over the inclusions and budget so that personal chefs can prepare all food based on your preferences or requirements. This means that you can enjoy any cuisine without worrying if it meets your dietary needs. Here are some things to expect when booking a private chef near you through our platform:

In-house chef

Having a private chef at home can give any meal an upgrade. Hire a Tasker for special occasions like anniversaries or birthdays. Treat a loved one to a spread of all his breakfast favourites topped off with home-baked dessert. A professional chef can dedicate a day to create a menu and dining experience that rivals a fancy restaurant. The best part is you don’t even have to leave your home or bother with dress code restrictions. Have a candle-lit steak and wine night in your sleepwear if you want!

Meal prepping and planning

A private chef can also cook for you regularly, either preparing meals fresh daily or batch cooking a few dishes for the whole week. Feel free to let them know about your dietary requirements and preferences. They can even handle the grocery shopping for you and get quality ingredients for a full-course meal. Booking a personal chef service means your Tasker can also work with your fitness trainer or consult with a licensed nutritionist before creating a bespoke menu based on your current health status and goals.

Lastly, there’s no need to worry about cleaning up after cooking. These can all be handled by your Tasker whether they cook in your kitchen or prepare the meals in theirs and deliver it to you instead. All you need to do is sit back and savour your delicious food!

Dinner parties and catering

You can also hire a personal chef for group gatherings and events. Why bother slaving off in the kitchen to create an impressive feast? There’s also no need to arrange for pot luck any more for private dinner parties and Sunday lunches. Having a private chef for a dinner party will surely make event planning a breeze! You can enjoy your guests’ company without worries because a highly-rated Tasker has the kitchen under control. You can book catering for a small family reunion or a huge get-together with friends! Gone are the days when decadent dishes and fine dining is reserved for five-star restaurants. Transform any space into a food haven with a private chef on Airtasker!
