Looking to hire a private chef.

Updated: Mar 25


Panning your experience 


Planning an event, whether a three-course meal for two, a wedding breakfast for the many, or anything in between, we begin with an email outlining the options to cater to the specific requirements; this will include the current pricing for each option. 

Followed by sample menus, these menus can then be tailored to your group's needs and tastes, whether it is a diet need or looking to create a meal you once had in the "South of Spain" or both.


Before we arrive.


We hope for a relatively tidy kitchen. We bring printed menus and lay the table accordingly.

Private Chef

A fair bit of time can go into cooking a three-course meal, and preparation is needed before we arrive. The level of preparation is very similar to what most chefs do in a professional kitchen before service; for instance, most sauces and garnishes are prepared in advance, meaning these items are cooked and seasoned to perfection. That frees time to discuss the menu, explain the dishes and promote our Cornish producers. Also, if anyone wants to know more about the local area, such as where to spot seals, where the best surf is or what beach to take the dogs to.



Timings


Regarding our private chef experiences, we arrive approximately an hour before you would like the first course; we may need more time if you have planned canapes.

We bring extra plates, glassware, and cutlery; however, we usually use the equipment at the properties, as most have suitable bits and bobs. 


Many of our clients are generally on holiday or locals staying in beautiful houses, looking to celebrate a birthday or enjoying precious time with friends and family. 

I want to thank some exceptional companies that manage stunning holiday homes in Cornwall. These include Perfect Stays, Three Mile Beach, Cornish Stays, Cornish Horizons, Aspect Holidays, and Cornish Gems. It is always a pleasure to cook in these beautiful, well-equipped homes. 



What does it cost to hire a private chef?


Prices vary when hiring a private chef, depending on your preference.

For instance, a three-course meal is only £69.30 per person, which includes service and all of the above. There are no hidden costs, although we may need to include a surcharge for travel expenses. 



We offer discounts for larger groups and cover most of Cornwall.
