Host a Free Dinner Party with Your Own Private Chef

Always wanted to be a food critic?

Fancy yourself a good food and dining photographer? Now’s your chance to show us your skills & put your taste buds to the test. We’re looking for passionate foodies to join a close-circle social food community and critique our private chefs.

Chef Auditions

Chef Auditions are 3-course meals cooked and delivered by chefs looking to join our team as a Private Chef. They’re social dinners designed to have people interacting, sampling delicious food, and helping chefs experience what it’s like to work as a Private Chef. You’ll get to taste and enjoy different dishes with your guests and provide valuable feedback at the end. What’s not to love?

What to expect at a Chef Audition?

A typical Chef Audition is not much different from a casual social dinner. All you need to do is bring together a table of around 8 foodies, including yourself. The auditioning chef will turn up to your house, introduce themselves, and show off their culinary skills and food delivery experience with two canapes and three plated courses.

What you need to do at Chef Audition

(besides enjoying yourself)


Before Dinner

  • Prepare your favourite ingredients for 8 people. Beef? Salmon? Veggies? It’s your call!
  • The day before the Chef Audition, the chef will come and check out your chosen ingredients. They may need to do some preparation work at your house. Please allow 2-3 hours for them to familiarise themselves with your kitchen and have a good look at all the ingredients
  • On the day of the Audition, your Chef will arrive 3 hours before dinner to start cooking
  • Set up your dining table with your own love and creativity. Use flowers, candles, placemats – anything you wish

During Dinner

  • Each guest will sample the flavours of every course and provide feedback via the feedback form. Your feedback will help us determine whether the auditioning chef has what it takes to join the CHEFIN platform as a Private Chef
  • Every guest must take at least 20 good quality photos of the chef, dishes, and happy moments around the dining table
  • One nominated guest should provide a 45-second interview video with a set of interview questions (provided by us).  Wach examples below

After Dinner
