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

Not much to be honest. Your private chef in Sydney 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 private 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.
