All chefs set their own rates, but we adhere to industry standards.
Private chef rates are typically hourly + cost of food + service charge.
Dinners 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.
Rates vary by menu, amount of meals, location, and chef’s experience level. Please let us know what your ideal budget is when you contact us so we can pair you with a chef within your range. There is never any charge for connection.
