What does a private chef cost?

  • You set a budget for your meal when making your request. Chefs then compete for your business with menus reflecting your budget and preferences
  • Chefs decide their own menus and prices, sending you all inclusive proposals that are easy to compare
  • As a guide, you could expect a dinner for 6 to start from $300-$400 ($50 -$60 per head). Just like a restaurant meal, prices will vary depending on the type of food being prepared and the experience of the chef
  • Also keep in mind, lower budget requests tend to attract less interest from chefs, especially on high demand weekend dates.
  • Placing a meal request is free, with no commitment. If you do not like any of the chefs proposals, you can cancel the request
