maui private chef 
Maui is called “The Valley Isle” and is as famous for its white sand beaches and volcano sunrise as it is for its lush jungles and farmland. Maui is home to practically every temperate zone found on earth, and so also boasts a vast array of culinary offerings. From rare tropical fruits to endless papayas to strawberry and lavender gardens to endless seas of abundance – dining in Maui is an adventure all by itself! Our chefs have traditional culinary training and combine that with genuine love and appreciation of island culture. We can’t wait to cook for you and your family!

sample menus
We work with a community of yoga chefs with unique training, philosophies, and life experiences; and so each will have unique menus.
Some chefs are more comfortable with casual family-oriented work, and some prefer high-end five-star seated dinners work.
All chefs have work with local ingredients and farmers to create vegan and plant-based menus for sit down dinners, but some may also offer Ayurvedic, raw vegan, paleo, pescatarian, farm-to-table (plant-based and/or meat and poultry), along with other styles.
Please contact us directly so we can connect you with a chef, or chefs, in your area who offers the style of cuisine you are looking for. There is never any charge for connection.
investment
We honor our chefs to set their own rates and define their own worth. Rates vary depending on food style, chef’s experience, logistics, and guest count, and while all chefs set their own rates, we adhere to industry standards. Newer chefs will have lower rates so they can gain experience, and seasoned chefs will charge professional rates.
In general, expect to pay between $45-75/hour + cost of food + service charge + tax.
Some chefs will have preset menus available that charge per person rather than an hourly. Seated dinner rates are typically per guest for over 6-10 guests.
Meal prep and delivery rates may be per person (for established meal delivery providers) or hourly + cost of food for personalized offerings.
Please let us know what your ideal budget* and desired menu are when you contact us so we can pair you with a chef within your range. There is never any charge for connection.
