Brisbane’s food and dining scene is growing day by day, and we’re helping fuel the revolution by connecting you to some of the city’s best private chefs. We know the city’s restaurant scene is competitive, and that’s why we’ve made sure our team of Brisbane chefs are impressive, skilled, and at the top of their game.

Our criteria for choosing our Brissy chefs is simple: They have to be obsessed with good food. They’ve gotta be creative, passionate, and driven to constantly develop new food concepts and ideas.

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 Chefs in Brisbane. You will be presented a choice of Chefs, though during busy periods/last minute bookings you will be assigned a 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 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.

Chef Nick Guan explains his dishes to guests


We’re all about making dining more interactive here at CHEFIN, and that extends to having your own chef! Why stop at just choosing the menu? We think it’s impossible to enjoy a fully authentic and social dining experience without the chef, and that’s why we’re reintroducing them as part of the experience. Chefs are the force behind the food, the genius behind the flavours, and they should be out there interacting with diners!

You’ll get more than just a private chef when you book with CHEFIN. You’ll get a unique atmosphere with the chef cooking away in the background, you’ll get to learn about all the ingredients used and the history of your dishes, you’ll get to enjoy the social aspect of dining, and you’ll get one fabulous host. Yep, your private chef will host your meal, meaning you can offload your own hosting duties!
