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 $89 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.

I can’t say enough good things about the experience we had with At your Table. The booking process was easy; every person we dealt with was excellent; Natalia who served bar/food on the day…..brilliant; and Caleb…..oh my goodness…..the food was incredible. Every dish was a work of art; every taste was a sensation; every serving was so well thought through and executed to perfection. I can’t thank you enough for making my mums’ day (80th b’day) incredibly special and also making it so special for everyone there. Loved it and will be back. 🙂

What an amazing Chef Caleb is. Oh my gosh, it was incredible experience have someone of Caleb's talent in our kitchen, creating a 3-course meal for 12 of us. Each dish was so well crafted - the perfect balance of flavour, freshness, texture, aromatic, and colour. It was a no fuss, exceptional evening from start to finish. Thank you, Caleb.

Hemant Dadlani
Chef Hemant was wonderful. Really easy going, talkative and a pleasure to have in our kitchen. His food was nice but not out of the world.

Manish Patel (NSW)

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.

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?

William Poveromo
William was outstanding. The food was delicious! He was lots of fun and made it such a special occasion. I can recommend more highly. Will definitely get him again

Edwina Ekins (NSW)

William Poveromo
Chef William was impressive from the start. He easily accommodated our request to remove the dessert and add side dishes. Chef William then suggested two fantastic canape additions to round off a tremendous menu. The execution of the menu was first class. The wagyu steak was a melt-in-your-mouth kind of delight. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Jonathan Cawte (NSW)

William Poveromo
Chef William’s food was one culinary delight after another and so beautifully presented. Chef William and waitress Kat were so relaxed and personable. It was a pleasure to have them both at our special occasion. It was the cherry on top to have the kitchen spotless again before they left. What a treat.

Andrew's communication leading up to the event was excellent and he was very flexible in helping make the event perfect. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food with the scallops and beef cheeks being a big hit. I would not hesitate in having Andrew come to my house again!

Shannon Black (WA)

Jess Allen
Jess was an excellent chef, cooked a wonderful meal, friendly but equally stayed out of the way on a romantic occasion - he was excellent

Philip Badge (VIC)

Christian was wonderful for our girls weekend dinner. The food was lovely, he was engaging and thoughtful, and the whole experience of organising it was simple. Thank you to everyone for a great evening

Sophie Green (WA)

Leon Poi
Wow! What an awesome experience. Chef Leon was incredible. Arrived well ahead of time, completely organised, attentive to dietary and allergy requirements, personable. Leon regularly checked in with our group of 5 girlfriends together for long weekend away, ensuring all was ok. The food was magnificent. The only issue was that we could not fit in the 5th course of a local cheeses grazing board - we were soooo full! Please assure Leon we enjoyed every morsel the next day, particularly his special 'chutney'. We could rave on about each dish, but the takeaway message is that if you are considering Chef Leon for your next personal catering event, do it! We are so glad we did :)

Jenny CLARKE (NSW)

Gavin Ong
A really fantastic evening - family dinner for 12 of us for my husband’s 60th birthday. Our 5-course meal was excellent. Stand out was the coffee marinated beef eye fillet, closely followed by the pesto sauce with the scallops - but everything was delicious. And Chloe in role as waiter made the evening very relaxing. Thank you

Rachel Nicholls (VIC)

Amanda Lennon
Amanda and Kat were both absolutely wonderful. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, the guests were well looked after and the kitchen spick and span at the end of the service. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the whole experience.

Jacki Goodridge (NSW)

Jess Allen
Fantastic experience. Food and service both exceptional. So lovely to have it all in our own kitchen and sparkling clean at the end. Guests all remarked that it was fabulous. Loved that chef Jess had grown the veggies in his own garden.

Tamieka (VIC)

Min Kim
What a wonderful evening we had last night. Chef Min and Julie worked as a seamless team to bring us three great dishes of food! Everyone appreciated the presentation and creativity - not to mention taste - of each course. Drinks were replenished as needed, and Min and Julie seemed to just know where everything was that they needed to use. I knew very early that I could just relax! Thank you for recommending them and for making it happen. We will certainly consider using you again for future special occasions.

Kathy Esson (NSW)

Frederick Marechal
Fredrick was amazing, we look forward to having him again in the future!

Ameilia Douglas (QLD)

Darrin Tunstall
We had a fabulous experience and can definitely recommend the At Your Table team. Our chef - Darrin - arrived on time and after an easy orientation to our kitchen delivered delicious food at the appointed time as agreed beforehand. It was fuss free and there was no washing up to do either - taken care of. We would be happy to use this team in future.
