5 principles uniting CHEFIN Chefs:

Commitment to quality

As a private chef, you’re expected to demonstrate a great commitment to quality. This encompasses everything from choosing the best quality products and sourcing the finest ingredients out there, to the presentation of your dishes and the way you use ingredients. 

Mastery of flavour profiles & cooking techniques

You must be prepared to improvise and adjust your cooking style depending on the available resources you have for each event. Make the most of what you are given!

Unique personalities

To truly succeed as a private chef, you must stand out from the crowd and present your unique individual personality to the world. Every dinner you create is an exclusive experience for guests, and you are part of the show. You need to shine in your communication as well as your appearance, and every plate you serve should stand out and shout out to the world – “This is me!”

Sensational food

A truly special dish is one you never want to end. Our private chefs are committed to presenting each dish with a full harmony of flavours, structuring the menu to make guests want more and more. It’s all about creating something truly joyful to eat, every time.


When you embody your private chef persona, people start to crave that same experience over and over. They want consistency, and you need to be able to demonstrate the same dedication and quality of cooking time and time again. To truly succeed as a private chef, your individual dishes and all your services should share harmonious qualities.

Don’t be afraid to show your creativity.

Branch out, embrace yourself as an individual and follow your passion as a chef. Some of the best private chefs in our community work directly with growers, farmers, and fishermen. Some even forage in hedgerows and woodlands, grow their own plants and rear animals. Others are avid supporters of regenerative methods such as no-dig vegetable gardens and successional cover crop growing. 

We don’t want to tell you who to be – we simply want to empower you to embrace who you are and show it to the world.
