"Dana was fantastic. She was very organised, efficient and well prepared. Her food was delicious and she happily catered for our dietary requirements and the presentation was impeccable. For an intimate dinner for my birthday Dana was a great choice and all my guest have been raving about how yummy the food was. The white chocolate mud cake was a standout dessert! I would definitely use her again and I highly recommend her. Thank you Dana for a lovely dinner. "

"Samantha was an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE!! Not only did she travel from botany to palm beach to cook for us! But she was so easy to deal with when planning my anniversary dinner menu, and was incredibly friendly, relaxed and just generally lovely. The food was absolutely delicious, she left the kitchen spotless and even left some leftovers (like caramel sauce mmm haha!). Can’t recommend her enough. Thank you Samantha!"

Suggested reads about Private Chef

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!

Private chef for dinner for 2

$300

Clayton VIC, Australia

17th Aug 2022

I'm after a private chef to cook at my home a dinner for myself and my partner for her birthday. I'm open to all menu ideas, but we especially do like our meat, carbs and desserts. We're after the novelty and convenience of having dinner prepared for us at our own home while also enjoying some high quality meals. The date must be Saturday 8 October and can accommodate common dinner times in the evening. The budget I'm looking at is $300 - $400 for everything included (ingredients, cooking at my home) and is not the amount after Airtasker fee (so I will be paying this total amount rather than this + fees). I am open slightly more expensive options if they're the right option. Thanks! - Due date: Needs to be done on Saturday, 8 October 2022 EDIT 17/08: - I would prefer an earlier start (~5-6pm) - We are not interested in alcohol except for maybe a little bit of wine if it pairs with food well - I have a 900mm 5 burner gas stove top and a modern oven

We are planning a team building Xmas in July. The event will be for 10 - 15 adults. We are hoping to book a private chef 👨‍🍳 who will cook a variety of Italian and Australian inspired dishes. Including some basics - pasta, garlic bread and bruschetta. I am also happy for recommendations. - Due date: Needs to be done on Sunday, 31 July 2022

Carlos was so friendly and nice. He had great communication leading up to the event and great communication throughout the event. The meals he made were absolutely delicious 😋. He could improve on his time management. But don't let that discourage you because he was lovely, the food was amazing and he even cleaned up/washed dishes afterwards which was a great relief also when entertaining. I recommend Carlos for your next function 👌
