You will be presented with 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 New York City?

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.
