private chefs

Postby LOLMum » Thu Feb 10, 2011 9:58 pm

caught a bit part of a tv show a few weeks ago about 2 young men who are private chefs. in the show, they went to the clients' house to cook a meal for them. they will plan the menu with the client, go to the market to get all stuff and head to client;s house to cook.

has anyone try this type of service before?

My husband was invited to his colleague's house and the 2 chefs was there to cook for them. Think there were 9 guest in the house. They prepared sushi and Kobe beef (Wagyu beef). He told me it was delicious. Too bad his colleague never invite the family. Perhaps it was too expensive. My husband told me it was because they do not know how to cook, that's why they got in the chef

I believe ST featured private chefs in the papers before. They certainly don't come cheap. Depending on the popularity and experience of these chefs, they cost more than $50 per head to cook for. They can even go up to $200 pax. And that excludes the purchase of expensive ingredients and wine.
