Private Chefs Sydney


Forget about choosing options on a menu – choose your own chef! One of our primary values here at CHEFIN is to reintroduce the chef as part of the dining experience. They’re the force behind the cooking, the genius behind the flavours, and they should be interacting with the eaters (that’s you!)

Our private chefs will do more than just cook your food. They’ll add to the atmosphere and social aspect of dining, educate you on ingredients used and the history of their dishes, and take on the role of being a fantastic host. Yep, that means you get to offload your own hosting duties!

We’re proud to have such a diverse range of chefs, each with their own individual backgrounds and experience. Learn more about the forces behind the cooking below!
