The best private chefs

We only accept the best! All Chefs have been background checked, interviewed and had their work reviewed.

In addition to being great cooks, our chefs have also been chosen for their interpersonal skills - a very important ingredient in making your dinner a success!

Meet some of our chefs below


Los Angeles

Antonella is a product of her Italian genes and American upbringing. Learning the Italian classics from birth, she now loves nothing more than giving her dishes a modern and healthy Californian twist. Check out her Scampi with sauteed spinach.


Sean perfected his art in California, attending culinary school in Napa Valley and working at several top restaurants in San Francisco. Since moving to Chicago he has been bringing his yummy take on modern Mediterranean cuisine to private clients. We think his Braised Beef with Spring vegetables is the bomb!


Washington DC - DMV

Meg is a classically trained chef with experience across the US after stints in NYC and Las Vegas. Since arriving in DC, she has blown away every customer with both her food and generosity as a personal chef. Words such as "divine", "heaven" and "awesome" jump out in her customer reviews. Her signature style is amazing desserts.


Neil is a WA native who received culinary training in California and has been cooking in top Seattle restaurants for the last 10 years. He loves his work as a private chef and thinks that the intimacy of sharing his cooking in a customers home is something special that you just can't get in a normal restaurant setting.


New York and Connecticut
Massimo was born in Italy and is a graduate of the Marco Polo Culinary Institute in Genoa, Italy. He has 30+ years experience as a chef, including stints at the Savoy Hotel in London, Louis XII in Monaco, Tre Merli bistro in NYC and Palio Restorante in Long island. His signature dish is fresh made pasta.


San Diego
Chloe is quite an accomplished chef, graduating with Deans list honors from Julia Child's French Culinary Institute, and working at some of California's best restaurants such as Sierra Mar and Playground. While well versed in all food types, she has a real penchant for healthy and creative vegetarian cuisine.

About us

We believe that great experiences happen over food, and that few things are more authentic than a meal cooked in your own home.

Celebrities such as Jamie Oliver are getting everyone more excited about cooking and entertaining at home. And TV shows like Masterchef, as well as food bloggers, are pushing amateurs to become amazing chefs.

This got us wondering: 

  • How can those of us who are a little short on time experience a great meal at home that is a little more authentic than a Blue Apron meal kit or catering company?
  • And, where can chefs practice their passion if they don’t want to work the traditional 6 days a week in a restaurant or give up their day jobs?

Our solution is Table at Home. We have made it easy to hire a top independent private chef to cook for you in your home. Whether it is for a nice dinner party, private cooking lessons or a romantic dinner. Posting a request only takes minutes, and we have taken the guesswork out of choosing a personal chef with customer reviews and photos of chefs’ creations. 

If you love the convenience of sharing economy sites like AirBnB and Uber, we think you will love the experience of hiring a private chef with Table at Home.
