What’s the difference between a personal chef and a private chef?

The main difference between a personal chef and a private chef boils down to their clients.

Both types of chefs can shop for your ingredients and prepare meals for formal events. 

What is a private chef?

private chef is usually employed by one household or client, and they work full time for that client. They are in charge of preparing all the meals for the day. Private chefs often cook fresh meals and prepare snacks throughout the day. 

What is a personal chef?

Personal chefs typically have multiple clients, and they create customized meal plans for those clients. They’ll discuss your dietary needs, create menus, shop for ingredients and prepare the meals.

This was my first personal chef experience and she really set the bar high! The process was seamless. She helped me craft the perfect menu, arrived on time with all the necessary utensils, AND the presentation was beautiful. Food tasted delicious. 5 stars!

Chef Curtis hosted my amazing 30th birthday dinner when I flew out to Vegas for it at our AirBnB villa. He was amazing and his food was incredible to taste. I initially had plans for Nobu but I am super pleased I switched my mind about going with a private chef instead. I would recommend Chef Curtis to anyone who is looking for a very professional yet personal experience. I even remember he brought my cake out while all my friends sang to me. It was very memorable. I couldn't have had a better milestone birthday dinner.

Look no further!! Chef Jenny rocks my world. I’ve been working with her for approximately 3 months and I honestly don’t know what I would do without her. Every week she prepares a new menu following the nutritional guidelines I requested. Her meals are gourmet and absolutely delicious! I thought finding a personal chef would be daunting but as soon as I sent her a message, she responded within 15 min! From there, we worked together to create a meal plan that worked specifically for me and I haven’t looked back since. Chef Jenny is top notch, very professional, personable and highly recommended!

Let me start off by letting everyone know, if you are planning on hiring a personal chef for your event, large party or intimate affair, Chef ShaDiGity is the one you want to hire! I hired him for an intimate double date night and he made it a night to remember for us . He prepared filet mignon, stuffed salmon, green beans, mac n cheese, garlic knots, and a fudge brownie cake for dessert. He also made a peach mint sweet tea 😋 He sings, raps, cooks, had great conversation, and just an all around great guy. His presence made everyone comfortable. We loved his food as well as the experience. He is Amazing at everything he does all while being courteous, and maintaining professionalism and respect.

I want to start by saying that chef Pierre was very friendly and personable, and if it wasn’t for how nice she was we would have rated lowered. We had a party of 7 people and we all agreed everything was going great until it didn’t. This was our first experience with a personal chef and it also happened to be for my birthday. We were set to eat at 7PM, but unfortunately some things happened and that was unable to happen. We understand, mistakes happen so we were not upset by the mistake just how she handled the mistake. To start, since this mistake happened we didn’t eat until almost 9 PM. We ended up having to rush through the meal because we had plans around 1030. With the mistake happening the chef left the meals on warm while she ran to the store, which ended up making a MEDIUM RARE steak WELL DONE. The shrimps were very dry, and the mashed potatoes were ok. The only thing that was fresh was the salmon because that was the only thing not left to be warmed up. The food tasted like we had just warmed up leftovers. We were never offered any other solutions to this, no credit back for the huge inconvenience, didn’t even offer to redo the meal so it would all be fresh, we were only told that she was leaving stuff on warm and running to the store. There was also a comment made “well, you can pay the remaining balance how you sent the deposit and you should be all good”. We felt like this was her way of making sure we paid the full price for the meal even though she had not satisfied the arranged time and food was ok at best. The least that could have been done was to credit us some money back (as the meal wasn’t worth the full price) and or find a better solution than leaving food on warm. There was a clear lack of customer service. Overall, just not a good experience.
