Private Chef

A private Chef often possesses a formal culinary education, apprentice in fine dining establishments, and works exclusively for a private family or individual. Private chefs differ from personal chefs in that they focus their energy and creativity on one family or individual instead of providing occasional chef services to various private clients at one time. Adding a private chef to your household staff increases your dining enjoyment and creates unique opportunities to enjoy a healthier diet.

Types of private chefs include:

  • Full-time chefs who prepare every meal
  • Part-time chefs who prepare some meals.  They can be prepped and delivered ready to be heated up, or they can be prepped onsite with meals prepped for the following day(s).
  • Corporate dining room chefs who prepare meals around business functions
  • Summer chefs for seasonal vacation homes
  • Short-term chefs who prepare meals during disruptive life transitions (jobs, babies, funerals, etc.)
  • Yacht Chef who focuses on short- to long-term contracts on luxury Yachts

Private chef responsibilities can include:

  • Ability to seamlessly fit into a harmonious work environment.
  • Strong communicator, both written and verbal
  • High level of discretion, loyalty, integrity & honesty
  • Highly organized & an excellent eye for detail.
  • Menu planning
