1. Request your meal

  • This takes less than a minute. We just need a few key details, like proposed date, food style preferences, budget, etc.

  • A typical request might be a 2-3 course dinner for 8 next Saturday night, prefer Italian or Spanish and don't like fish. And with a budget of $60-$90 per person.

2. Select your Chef

  • Within 24 hours, 2-5 Chefs propose Menus they would like to prepare for you

  • Each Chefs proposal has a clear menu and a total price, all inclusive of ingredients, cooking, serving and clean-up

  • Proposals are easy to compare, with chefs profiles, customer reviews and photos

  • You can message a chef to change a dish or ask a question

3. Enjoy

  • At the agreed time, your Private Chef comes to your home and prepares the meal in your kitchen. They bring all ingredients and any specialist cooking equipment you do not have

  • At the end of the meal, the chef cleans up and leaves you to relax after a great meal


Chef Pricing

  • You set a budget for your meal when making your request. Chefs then compete for your business with menus reflecting your budget and preferences

  • Chefs decide their own menus and prices, sending you all inclusive proposals that are easy to compare

  • As a guide, you could expect a Dinner for 8 to start from $640 ($80 per person), and Dinners for 2 typically start at $300 ($150 per person). Just like a restaurant meal, prices will vary depending on the type of food being prepared and the experience of the chef

  • Placing a meal request is free, with no commitment. If you do not like any of the chefs proposals, you can cancel the request

Authentic Private Chefs vs Caterers

  • The Private Chefs on Table at Home are all authentic independent chefs who love to personally share their talents with customers - not mass market caterers

  • This means that they will need to use your kitchen to prepare the meal, and expect to use your plates, cutlery etc. for serving the meal

  • After you have confirmed a chef, they will contact you to understand your kitchen setup and work out what (if any) additional kitchen equipment they will need to bring
