We still have a limited number of chefs with holiday availability; contact us today to hire the chef that’s right for you.
What is a Private Chef?
A personal or private chef is hired on either a part or full-time basis by a family or single person. According to the American Personal & Private Chef Association,
“A private chef is employed by one individual or family full time, and often lives in, preparing up to three meals per day. A personal chef serves several clients, usually one per day.”
A private chef will hold a degree from a reputable culinary school and will typically have a minimum of four years experience in a domestic setting. Their main responsibility is to prepare meals for an individual or family. They may live-in with the family to provide on-call service or plan weekly meals according to a set schedule. A common schedule for a private chef is to work mid-morning to evening in the home preparing lunch, dinner and breakfast for the next day. They will also be essential in planning any events in the home.
