What does it mean to hire a personal chef ?

This is an interactive experience with your own personal chef. We will escort you through a range of dishes, tastes and flavours. Taste, watch, chat and ask questions along the journey.

You can choose to interact with the chef one on one at any time and also to enjoy the company of your guests while sipping from your favourite drink in a totally relaxed atmosphere, without worrying about the food and the cleaning.

Just like at a restaurant in your own home, this is a gastronomic journey through tasting experience and it is both a visually and information rich experience as well as being a delicious feast.What to do? Pick some of your favourite dishes from a selection of individually designed menus or for your own custom menu.

Finally, the favourite part for many people is that we will do the clean-up after the meal. You won’t need to lift a finger at the end of the evening, and we will clean your kitchen and your appliances and leave everything spotless. All while you continue enjoying the evening with your guests without a care about what’s happening in the kitchen.
