Private Chefs

Our PRIVATE CHEFS

Our private chefs have all the ingredients for delivering a seriously delicious gourmet meal. But more than that, they’ve got the spirit, passion, and imagination to provide a culinary experience that’s truly unique.

We think it’s unfair to keep highly creative, dedicated, and driven chefs in the kitchen at the back of a restaurant. They should be at the forefront, unleashing their culinary creativity and personally serving and sharing each meal they’ve created. And that’s what each of our personal chefs does.

OUR PRIVATE CHEF TEAM

Hailing from top restaurants both in Australia around the world, each of our private chefs has been handpicked for their dedication, talents, and culinary wizardry. They’re passionate about quality cooking, technique, and providing incredible service. They’re dedicated to sourcing premium ingredients, cooking with love and soul, and making eating a time to connect.

There’s no culinary challenge our premium personal chefs can’t handle. Highly skilled and ready to tackle any job no matter the size or cuisine, each of our private chefs has their own unique twist on cooking. With different educations, backgrounds, histories, and specialties, each chef has their own edge that’s inspired by their experiences and individual tastes.

Sebastian Pile

‘The most important part of a meal is good food, good company, and of course good drinks. And a good joke at the end’

He’s cooked for Bill Clinton and met Jackie Chan while catering his film shoot for Bleeding Steel. Sebastian is used to cooking for the elite, serving up sophisticated cuisine that comes with a side of humour. If you’re looking for impeccable presentation in each dish as well as a bit of fun and banter, then Sebastian is your man.

Valeria Boselli

‘I have a dream that dining vegetarian & vegan should be a belief & culture, fun and exciting experience, and deserves to be delicious’

If you’re looking for catering that’s conscious, then Valeria’s healthy mouth-watering cuisine is where you’ll find it. An Italian who’s been calling Australia home for the last 10 years, Valeria is passionate about making plant-based dining an exciting, fun, and healthy meal that’s a party for your taste buds. For something that tastes too good to be healthy (but is), Valeria’s got the goods.

FIND YOUR PERSONAL CHEF

Choosing a private chef is just as important as choosing a menu. At CHEFIN, one of our core values is to reintroduce the chef as part of the culinary experience. Chefs are there to do more than just cook and serve food. They add to the atmosphere and social aspect of dining, they educate guests on ingredients and different cuisines, and they take on the role of being a great host.

Read through our chefs’ bios to get a good feel for the unique personalities and skill sets of each of our private chefs. Consider what catering experience you’re looking for, what kind of cuisine you’d like to enjoy eating, and what the theme of your event would be. Our personal chefs will be the ones working with you to craft a mouth-watering customised menu that’s full of your favourites (and their specialties!)

‘I cook with whichever produce nature provides me’
