About Our Service

How does your service work?

You contact us via email or phone. We get all the neccesary detail. Private chefs create a menu to suit your needs and dietary requirements. Once the menu as been confirmed a 75% deposit is required to secure your booking.

We do most of the food preparation off-site. Private Chefs arrive an hour before your event to set up. When all your guests arrive dinner is served. When the meal is done we pack up, clean and leave you with a clean kitchen and satisfied guests.

What do I need to do before the chef gets there?

The only thing to do before we arrive, is to set any decorations that you might like on the table, for example flowers, candles etc. On our arrival, our professional team will set the tables with all the necessary crockery and cutlery.

Do you provide crockery and cutlery?

Private Chefs supply all crockery, cutlery and linen serviettes. Unfortunately we do not provide tables, chairs or tables cloths.

What do you do in case of load shedding?

Not a problem at all. We bring a portable gas stove in case of load shedding, so that we will be able to do your event to the best of our abilities. We’ve cooked six course menus on a braai in the middle of the Kalahari, so a little load-shedding won’t stop us.

What is the maximum number of guests you cater for?

For a seated menu we cater for up to 30 guests. If a bowl food or canapé menu is chosen, we cater for up to 80 guests. We believe in quality, not quantity!

What is the minimum number of guests you cater for?

We do events as intimate as 2 guests.

Do you travel?

Private chefs do travel for events. Please contact us for more details.

About Our Menus

Do you have menus I can choose from?

We have sample menus on the site, however we do not have menu options to choose from. The idea is to suit the menu to your needs and the season you are planning to have your event. Therefore we ask for dietary requirements and preferences.

If there are no requirements or preferences the Chef will be more then able to send you as unique and seasonal menu.

Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

Catering for dietary requirements is one of Private Chef’s specialities. Unfortunately we don’t do Kosher catering, due to the strict dietary rule.

What is the bowl food menu?

A bowl food menu is a menu suited to larger more social events. The menu is served in the same way as a canapé menu, but is more substantial. The menu would consist of a few canapés for the starter portion of the menu.

The main course is served in small easy to hold bowls that eliminate the need to have people seated. The menu is finished of with a few dessert canapés.

Do you do wine pairings?

Wine pairings are an optional extra that can be added to the menu at an additional fee. When the wine pairing is chosen, we pair the wine to your menu and wine glasses are supplied free of charge.
