To celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary, we were looking for a unique way to celebrate. We decided to invest in a personal chef and contacted chef Gerard from ChefBnbEats. Since we were not familiar with the process, we had a number of logistical questions. Chef Gerard was responsive to all of our questions and worked with us to create our menu. The Chef offered menu options and made recommendations when requested. Once the menu was selected, the Chef handled the food shopping. Our dinner party consisted of 9 people--5 had steak, 2 had chicken and the other two people chose fish. The Chef also prepared side dishes of a potato stack, mushrooms, asparagus and green beans. In addition, we requested appetizers--a charcuterie board and an apricot/maple sausage flatbread. The appetizers were exceptional and everyone enjoyed them. The dinner preparation was exceptional---sous chef Jasmine and chef Gerard were able to prepare all dinners in a kitchen he had never seen. Gerard and Jasmine worked effectively as a team and took time to interact with us answering questions about their work and learning about us. The meal ended with a strawberry shortcake topped with ice cream and was the perfect desert after our meal. Chef Gerard and Sous Chef Jasmine cleaned the dishes/kitchen before departing. ChefBnbEats helped make the celebration of a 50th wedding anniversary memorable. From menu selection, through meal preparation to cleaning, ChefBnbEats delivered an excellent value which will be fondly remembered by everyone enjoying an expertly prepared dinner by Chef Gerard/Sous Chef Jasmine.

FAQs

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

    My pricing is per person not by the hour. Groceries are a separate charge. Which leaves the customer less stressed and confused on how long it will take for me to shop for groceries or being in traffic, to preparing their meal and cleanup. It's all built into the per person charge.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My initial conversation with new clients is to gain an understanding of the cuisine they would like as well as the reason they are celebrating/ needing the services of a private chef, to help produce a better experience. I then create a menu with dietary restrictions in mind. We are not limited by a set of menus. This event is all about you as much as it is about my craft.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attended Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, located in Boulder, Co. I also have several years in a high end country club, chain restaurants, and corporate dining.
