Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does a personal chef need a commercial kitchen?

A: While it can be very helpful for a personal chef to have access to a professional kitchen, this is not always necessary. Many private chefs work in the home kitchen of their employer, with some meals being prepared in the smaller kitchen of the family yacht or other setting. Some personal chefs may use the facilities of a private club, rent kitchen facilities at a public community center, or make other arrangements for events at remote locations.

Q: Do you tip personal chefs?

A: While there is no strong custom of tipping personal chefs, a gratuity is often appreciated as a token of appreciation and esteem. Most etiquette guidelines encourage a minimum tip of 10% of the total bill, with more for exceptional quality and service.

Q: Do you pay for a personal chef before or after the meal?

A: Each personal chef is free to negotiate a payment plan that suits both them and their clients. Your personal chef could, for instance, collect a regular wage as a household employee, bill for services after an event, or require payment in full prior to the event. Many personal chefs charge a deposit in advance of an event they are catering, and then, they invoice for the unpaid remainder after.
