1. Request your meal

  • Two ways to order: Either select a specific Chefs Set Price Menu or Request your own menu and have 2-5 chefs compete for you

  • This takes less than a minute. We just need a few key details, like when you want the meal, food style preferences, budget, etc

  • A typical request might be a 2-3 course dinner for 6 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

  • We authorize your credit card 2 days before the meal, but only finalize payment and pay out the chef for you after the 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 6 to start from $360-$540 ($60 -$90 per head). 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

Splitting the bill with friends - Group Pay

  • Dinner parties and nice dinners are much more fun enjoyed with friends ... and even better when you can share the cost

  • Just like a restaurant, you can easily split the bill for your Private Chef experience with Table at Home

  • After you have confirmed a Chef, simply give your friends the Meal ID, and then they can provide their credit card details for payment through the GroupPay page on our site

  • All GroupPay splits needs to be finalized 3 days before the meal date. The remaining balance for the booking will be billed to the original person who booked the meal.

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

Peace of mind

  • We are a strict 'invite only' platform for chefs - our rigorous screening, interview and background check vetting process ensures you are only dealing with good quality chefs

  • User reviews let you hear from other customers what chefs are like and find the right chef for you

  • We manage all the booking logistics and payment through the platform so you don't spend hours going back and forth with multiple chefs on the phone

  • The experience is seamless and simple so you can focus on enjoying your meal
