Frequently Asked questions

Do you have a selection of pre-set menus to choose from?

Your private chef will tailor the menu once the booking is confirmed. Then you will receive the menu to provide feedback until it’s perfectly matching your expectation.

Can I choose a chef?

CHEFIN runs on a data algorithm to identify and select the best-suited Chefs for your needs. Once a booking has been secured and confirmed, we are able to reveal a choice of Chefs suitable for your booking.

What happens once I make a booking?

Once booking submitted, you’ll receive a confirmation email of your order with the next steps. Our data algorithm will then identify and match you with the best-suited Chef who tailors a menu for your approval.

What kind of cooking facilities and equipment will I need to provide?

CHEFIN Chefs can work with anything you have, as far as they are aware. Once the booking confirmed, we’ll ask you about things like a working stove, oven, refrigerator etc. so your chef can be well prepared.

What happens on the day/evening of my event?

Your private chef will arrive 1.5 hours before the event with all the necessary ingredients, and begin setting up and preparing dishes. If you requested for waitstaff, they will then arrive separately. The team will take care of all the food and drinks (as advised). After the event is over, the team will clean the kitchen and event area before leaving you to bask in the afterglow of a wonderful event.
