If you’re shopping around for personal chefs, look no further than Chef Evan! He did a fantastic job preparing a delicious meal for my mom’s surprise 75th birthday dinner party of 14 guests. Each course was served at the perfect temperature, and he described each dish thoroughly. Plus, they washed and dried all the dishes, which was a tremendous help! Highly recommend and we’ll be reaching out to him in the future for events for sure!

Chef Evan was such a delight to work with! I hired him to cook for 9 friends on our vacation down to SoCal. He took care of everything from the equipment, cleaning and serving which made the experience so easy on me. He made an incredible 3 course meal and curated the menu perfectly for the group’s needs. Not only was the food amazing but he was also so personable and made the meal so special for the whole group. It was definitely the highlight of our entire trip. I highly recommend Chef Evan and could not thank him enough for such a great experience!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Standard (basic ingredients) • American - casual • Mexican / Latin American • Italian • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Evan is a very talented chef! I feel very fortunate to have come across him on Thumbtack! I hired Evan for my mother's 80th birthday dinner. He created a menu for us that was perfect. He arrived with everything he needed to prepare an exceptional meal and each dish was delicious! I can't say enough about Evan and the experience from start to finish. If you are thinking of hiring a private chef for a dinner party, professional event or that special evening with your loved ones. You should reach out to Evan and rest assured a great experience. Thank you Evan!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have a $500 minimum. Otherwise I charge a per person rate. No other fees of any kind. My 4 course plated dinners typically range from $110-$175. That price would increase if a server is needed or if the food is expensive ie wagyu, crab legs, whole lobsters, things like that, or if more courses are added.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    After restaurants closed again in December of 2020 because of Covid, I decided to pursue my own venture and I started Whisks & Knives.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Families, couples, friends, work colleagues.
