About Menus


do you cook in my kitchen?

Yes, we prepare the meal in your kitchen on the day of the event. We conduct a walk-through one week earlier. We supply our own cookware. After the event, we clean your kitchen.

who buys the groceries?

We buy the groceries, which are priced separately. A grocery deposit is collected when we sign the contract.

how much will a dinner party cost?

We will provide an estimate based on your menu selections and number of guests. A final price will be provided in writing.

who provides the wine or alcohol?

We can recommend wine pairings for every course. We will recommend wine vendors in your area, but you are responsible for the purchases.

can I have wait staff?

For most events, we recommend wait staff and a site manager.

what about a buffet?

We can create beautiful buffets for a minimum of 20 guests. Equipment and chafing dishes are provided for an additional cost.

what about special dietary needs?

We can provide interesting vegetarian and vegan menus, and can handle all food allergies or special dietary requirements.

what other services do you provide?

We would be happy to arrange any additional items you may need: flowers, special linens, glasses, flatware and plates etc., even entertainment, if desired.

do you offer gift certificates?

Our beautiful My Private Chef gift certificates give an immediate hint of how elegant and memorable the service will be.
