How to Hire a Private Chef in Sydney
At Your Table Sydney offers a unique and personal concierge service that will comprehensively guide you through all your decisions as you plan the perfect event with simplicity.
Decide on the type of event you wish to host, a dinner, a party, a picnic, a weekend away, a surprise, an informal or formal occasion where that will be.
Choose the type of cuisine, maybe modern Australian, Mediterranean, Classic French, Asian, or fusion.
Deciding on one of our private chefs is the first step in creating your perfect experience. You now know what type of event and food style you require so pick the chef who sounds perfect.
Look at the sample menus to see which suits you the best, but they are not set in stone and we can fine tune them according to your requirements.
Think about the number of courses or the varieties of food you would like.
Then call us so that we can talk together to finalise everything, we are the professionals and won’t let anything slip by so you can rest assured that nothing will be forgotten.
How Much Does a Private Chef Cost?
At Your Table brings incredible value to the luxury of your very own private chef, coming in at similar or often lower than restaurant prices with the benefit of a private and customised experience.
Our chefs have menus starting at $79 per head but that will vary according to the number of guests and courses you require, the more courses you decide upon will increase the price but the more guests you invite spreads the fee of the chef and can be very cost effective.
There are no hidden extras, all food, preparation, cooking, presentation, service, clearing and washing up are part of our inclusive package.
Sydney Suburbs covered by our chefs
Our private chefs can travel pretty much anywhere in Sydney, from the Northern Suburbs and North Shore down to the Southern Suburbs, and across from the Eastern Suburbs and Inner East to the Western Suburbs and the Inner West. If you live within the Metro Area, within a 25k radius of the CBD, then this is all included in our pricing.
If you live further afield, no worries, because our chefs will travel up to 50k from the city centre with just a surcharge for fuel, tolls and travelling time for the chef and waiter.
So wherever you live in Sydney, we’ve got you covered, our private chefs are on hand to visit you and bring the fine dining experience of the city right into your home.
