Everything you need to know about hiring a private chef in Sydney

At your Table is your one stop shop for finding a private chef and we offer a personalised concierge service tailored to your individual requirements 

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.

Caleb Song
Caleb was fantastic! He was very professional, prompt, polite and the food was to die for. I'd highly recommend him. He made a special occasion even more special.

Caleb Song
Due to uncertainty with COVID we decided to do this dinner at home. We ended up being impacted by people not being able to travel and despite not being able to make the changes we wanted the team was always very professional to deal with. We ended up having an amazing evening and the food was absolutely superb (we have menu 1 from the 5 course selection). Caleb also did a great job explaining all the dishes and the kitchen was left perfectly clean.

Tessa Morrison (NSW)

Caleb Song

Hemant's Recent Reviews

Hemant Dadlani
We booked through At Your Table for my husbands 40th birthday for 18 guests. We had an amazing night with Chef Hemant - the food was sensational, my husband is still talking about the roasted pumpkin that he cooked. The whole evening was extremely well planned from the pre-organising with the admin staff, the food, the wait staff and right up to the very end of the night where our kitchen was left spotless. We didn't have to do anything which made the night extremely enjoyable. Would definitely book again in the future and highly recommend to anyone looking for that 'something special' when celebrating a loved one's milestone in the comfort of your own home.

Jane Morgan (NSW)

Hemant Dadlani
Our chef Hemant was unbelievable, the food he cooked was excellent. We were all very impressed with our chef and our waiter. We have all talked about, when we are going to do it again.

Chef – Bing Liu

Sydney Chef – Modern Asian

Bing Liu

Is ‘Le Cordon Bleu’ in Paris your scene, coupled with the food culture of New York? Chef Bing has developed his personal style of cooking from his experience in both of these. The vibrancy of New York underpinned by the classic French cookery school is a perfect combination. In addition, he is a professionally trained Sushi Chef and could bring his experience in Sake, Sydney to your table.

Could Chef Bing wow you with something along these lines?

  • Roasted snapper, parsnip purée, fennel creme fraiche
  • Crispy pork belly, celery root, with apple mustard chutney
  • Rhubarb Vacherin, white chocolate mousse, marmalade
  • Citrus tart, yuzu cream, mandarin sorbet

William Poveromo
I wanted something special for my daughter's 18th Birthday celebrations with the family. I certainly got it! The food provided by Chef William was fantastic. It was hard to choose from the menu as it all looked yummy, and we were extremely pleased with our choices. It was easy and efficient to organise through At Your Table, and good value. I've never had so much fun entertaining in my own house. I had nothing to do but relax. No shopping, food prep, cooking and at the end of the night everything was cleaned up - yay, no dishes to be done! I would highly recommend chef William for any event you are contemplating.

Alison (NSW)

William Poveromo
Just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for the recommendation for William on Saturday evening! He was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond our expectations. His food was delicious (I think the best risotto we have both ever had) and presentation was second to none. Would definitely have him cook us again!

Chef William created a menu that perfectly suited our tastes and the occasion. Presentation was straight out of a fine dining restaurant. Seeing how each dish was prepared and being able to ask Chef about the techniques and flavours was a special bonus for us home cooks. Chef William was easily contactable, approachable, friendly, always professional and punctual. I would definitely do this again for the next special occasion meal.

Pierre Gaudin
What a fabulous experience to have Chef Pierre cook for my friends to celebrate a special milestone. Pierre's food was incredible, on another level and he was super nice explaining every meal to my guests as it was served. In a heartbeat I would use Pierre and the private dining experience. This is first time in my life I went out to the kitchen after a dinner party and it was spotless!

Ian Woodcock
Ian was a consummate professional from the start. He emailed and phoned me prior to the dinner to ensure everything was as I wanted it. Ian was punctual and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for him, which certainly took all the pressure off me. This was the first of my parties that I have actually been able to relax and enjoy. He presented us with a fabulous dinner and the guests are still raving about it. He came with all the equipment he required, and left the kitchen in an amazingly clean state. I would highly recommend Ian Woodcock for your next dinner party. Could not fault him. Thanks so much Ian. Kind regards - Roslyn Purcell
