Seated meals &
private chef services

Private chef seated dinners are a wonderful way to enjoy a curated intimate meal with your loved ones, clients, or outer community. Whether it’s a special occasion, a vacation, or you just would prefer a personal setting, let our chefs nourish you! 

Our chefs offer a wide array of menu options, and you can request certain styles, such as Californian, Italian, French, Indian or Thai. While all chefs in our collective are well-versed in plant-based offerings, many are happy to create more traditional menus utilizing sustainable local and imported fish, poultry, and meats. Many of our chefs specialize in intentional food choices, such as gluten-free, oil-free, Ayurvedic, macrobiotic, and more.

Services vary depending on the size, budget and logistics of your meal. While dinners are most traditional, brunches, lunches, picnics, and more can be arranged upon request. Some chefs work with designers, florists, and prop rental companies, to style up your meal! 

Traditional dinners are multi-coursed meals with table service or tasting menus, but casual service is also available, with buffets, prepped meals, or family style also options. If you know what you are looking for specify in your gig listing, or else leave it open for chefs to pitch! 

PRICES: WHAT TO EXPECT

We honor our chefs to set their own rates and define their own worth. Rates vary greatly depending on food style, preparation complexity, travel, chef’s experience, logistics, food cost, and guest count. Chefs will generally have a few sample menus available for you to get a feel for their style and pricing.

Please note that sometimes additional staff and rentals may be needed, depending on the size and nature of your meal, and these will be charged extra. Also note that for chef dinners, your kitchen at your home or rental property will be used, and you should be prepared to have it clean with refrigerator space to accommodate the chef’s preparation. 

Seated meals are generally billed at a per person cost of $50-250 per person, again, depending on the size and logistics of the meal. Some chefs will bill at hourly + cost of food, or a set labor rate + cost of food. The base rate for any booking is generally around $450, even for a party of two. Creating one beautiful meal can be up to two full days of work for a chef, with planning, ordering, shopping, travel, prep, service, and clean-up. 

Please browse chefs in your area to get an idea of standard rates, and indicate your ideal budget when posting a gig for chefs to bid on.

WHAT MAKES OUR CHEFS SPECIAL?

Full Service

Many chefs have full-scale catering operations and can manage everything you need for your private chef dinner, including rentals, decor, and more. If you want to keep it casual that’s no problem either!

Special Diets

Our chefs are used to creating custom menus, and many have cross-training in specialty diets, including gluten-free, paleo, Ayurvedic, plant-based, vegan, and more. Please submit any requests so they can be sure everyone in your party will love their delicious food!

Family Friendly

Our chefs cook from the heart, and that means there is an element of hospitality and ease that goes along with each service. Having someone new in your kitchen around your family preparing food should feel sweet and safe, and our chefs are mindful of this.

more-pleaze-icon-farm-to-table-pink

Farm-to-Table

It might sound cliché, but our chefs really do provide the best available produce and goods locally. Conscious cooking is a huge part of our platform, and that energy begins with the food source.

more-pleaze-icon-plant-based-pink

Plant-Based

While we are not a fully vegan chef collective, our chefs all are familiar with plant-based offerings, and many clients choose our chefs rather than a more traditional service because they want a chef whose food reflects their values.

more-pleaze-icon-love-pink

Love

We celebrate the human heart through food, thoughts, deeds, words, and actions, and believe you are what you eat. Therefore, all food is always made with LOVE.
