Private Chefs


We’ve teamed up with some of Australia’s best chefs to deliver food experiences that push boundaries and engage the senses.

Our private chefs are obsessed with food. They’re creative, passionate, and driven to consistently explore new food concepts and ideas. They’re always discovering new and obscure ingredients, special techniques, and intriguing ways to present their foods. They want to engage people’s senses, to spark conversation, to leave a mark on your memory.

We think it’s unfair to keep highly creative and dedicated chefs in the kitchen at the back of the restaurant. They should be at the forefront, showing off their creations and interacting with the diners that will eat them. That’s why we’re reintroducing the chef as part of the dining experience. Meet our chefs, get a feel for their food and personalities, and let them take you on an unforgettable food journey.


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.


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.
