Frequently Asked questions

Can I choose my menu items from a pre-set selection of menus?

Your private chef will custom tailor a menu for you when your booking is confirmed. We are 100% certain you will love your menu or we will return your money-back guarantee! Our Chefs LOVE to create dishes and every menu they construct is fully exclusive for your taste buds.

Can I select a specific Private Chef for my event?

Once a booking has been secured & confirmed our sophisticated algorithm will take your preferences & match these with the available Chefs in your area. You will be presented a choice of Chefs, though during busy periods/last minute bookings you will be assigned a Chef to work with.

How does booking a Private Chef work?

Once you book online with us you’ll receive a Booking Confirmation email with your order details & the next steps. You will need to fill in your dietaries, food preferences & desires and an algorithm will then identify and match you with the best-suited Chef who will tailor a menu for you.

As a platform with more than 700 available Chefs, we always have availability – or your money back guarantee! Our team works relentlessly to ensure we have the largest selection of Private Chefs across the country and are able to fulfil every single guest’s request.

What do I need to prepare for my event?

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.

What time does the Chef arrive on the day?

Your private chef will arrive 1.5 hours beforehand with all ingredients, and begin preparing your dishes. Waitstaff 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.

Why should I order a buffet breakfast?

What makes a buffet breakfast a better option than table service? Here’s why people choose buffet breakfast catering for their events:

  • More food options. Some of us are health nuts who want muesli and yoghurt for breakfast, while others prefer sausages and eggs. The best thing about a buffet breakfast is that it allows guests to pick and choose what foods they want and what they don’t want. This provides options and variety that makes the meal more enjoyable for guests with different preferences. It also means less wastage as guests aren’t served foods they don’t want to eat. 
  • Less expensive. It sounds counterintuitive, but buffet breakfasts are actually more affordable than traditional table service breakfasts. That’s because there’s no need to pay for servers or waitstaff. Guests can help themselves to food and voila! 
  • Bigger portions. Or smaller portions if that’s your preference. The great thing about buffets is that they allow each guest to eat to their heart’s content while discouraging food waste. Since guests can serve themselves, those with a smaller appetite can serve smaller portions while those with a big appetite can satisfy themselves. This is another way to reduce food wastage at an event.  
  • More social. Buffet breakfasts encourage guests to get up from their tables and help themselves for food. This means that guests at different tables have the opportunity to socialise and interact in ways that wouldn’t have been possible with traditional table service catering.

When should I order a buffet breakfast?

  • Order buffet breakfasts if you want your guests to mix and mingle at your event and not spend the entire time seated, 
  • Order buffet breakfast if you want to reduce food wastage at your event, 
  • If you want to impress your guests with a variety of foods, a buffet breakfast is the way to go, 
  • Order a buffet breakfast if you want to forego lunch and keep your guests/clients full for a longer time. 

Buffet breakfasts are fantastic at functions, seminars, workshops, graduations, training days, and any event that requires a substantial meal!
