Personal Chefs. What is a Personal Chef?

A Personal Chef is a chef who is hired by different clients and prepares meals in the client's home kitchen, based on their needs and preferences. In most cases the Chef leaves the meals she cooked, packaged in containers and refrigerated or frozen for the client to enjoy later. Some Personal Chefs focus on preparing dinner parties and other special events, which means they are responsible for shopping, preparing the meal, serving the guests and cleaning up afterward. The menu is pre-planned and discussed with the client, then prepared in their home. 

NB: A Personal Chef is different from a Private Chef, which refers to a Chef who employed solely by one client.

When hiring a Personal Chef to provide either a packaged meal service or to cook for a dinner party, a menu and budget are submitted for the client's approval. Typically, the Chef is given approval and an advance payment is made (usually 50%). the client pays for this in addition to the cost of the Chef's services and travel costs.

Some Personal Chefs also provide Meal Planning (as I do) for the client. I am a dietitian so I provide personalised meal plans according to the client's requirements, i.e. to help those who are: diabetic, have high colesterol, are over weight, have Krone's disease, are wheat/gluten intolerant.....

Are you planning a Dinner Party but can't bare the thought of cooking?

Why dine out when you can dine in? Especially during those cold Winter months. Let me prepare and cook for you (and your friends) in the comfort of your own home. I provide a highly personalised service from start to finish. I'll discuss your requirements and then design a unique, personal menu to suit your taste and budget. As mentioned above, special dietary needs can be catered for.

I'll take care of everything: shopping, preparation, cooking and serving. You won't have to worry about anything, except letting me look after you while you relax and entertain your guests.
