How can I hire a Private Chef in Brisbane?

Once a PACKAGE (dining style) is booked, CHEFIN’s sophisticated algorithm will take your preferences & match these with the available private chefs in Brisbane. You will be presented a choice of private chefs in Brisbane, though during busy periods/last minute bookings you will be assigned a private chef to work with. Once a chef is chosen, she/he will customise a menu based on your special requests. A few rounds of menu revisions could be provided upon your feedback.

What do I need to prepare for a Private Chef service in Brisbane?

Not much to be honest. Your private chef in Brisbane will only need your assistance with a few small things. You need to prepare a space in your fridge (1-2 shelves), clear your kitchen bench and introduce the Chef to the kitchen & dining areas. Depending on your booking you will need to prepare crockery/glassware/cutlery & set the table if no wait staff are included in your event booking. If you have reserved a waitstaff with us, the team could help you with table setting before the service.
