Which Chef should I choose?

By Illana Prinsloo

At Chefs At Your Breck And Call, we understand that selecting the perfect chef can be a delightful yet challenging decision. Our diverse team of culinary experts brings unique strengths and personalities to the table (no pun intended). To help you make an informed choice, consider the following pointers:

  • Event Type: First, think about the occasion. Are you hosting a big birthday celebration with both adults and kids? If so, consider a chef who can prepare a sophisticated meal for the adults while also engaging the little ones with a fun cooking course—perhaps teaching them how to make their own pizzas.
  • Weddings: For weddings, we’ve got you covered! Depending on your guest list size, you’ll likely need more than one chef. Don’t forget about mixologists and servers. Our experienced chefs will take care of the catering and At Your Breck and Call Luxury Concierge can make your wedding weekend truly enjoyable and less stressful with our local guide/driver/concierge for the bride and groom and their families. Reach out to us via email to discuss your wedding details—we’re here to assist!
  • Eco-Conscious Choices: If you’re environmentally conscious, rest assured that our chefs share your passion. Many of them source fresh ingredients from local farmers’ markets, creating sustainable and visually appealing dishes.
  • Dietary Restrictions and Allergens: Communication is key. Inform your chef about any dietary restrictions or allergies among your guests. Our chefs excel at crafting flavorful dishes even within these constraints.
  • Vegan Delights: If you’re vegan, fear not! We have chefs who specialize in plant-based cuisines. They’ll create exciting and delicious meals tailored to your preferences.
  • Interactive Experiences: Want to break away from traditional sit-down dinners? Consider booking a chef for a cooking class. Learn something new, enhance your kitchen skills, and enjoy a delightful meal—all in one experience!

These are just a few pointers, but it should give you a good idea of what questions to ask before deciding on which of our chefs to book. Remember, hiring a private chef is a personalized experience. Take your time, ask questions, and choose someone who not only meets your culinary needs but also brings creativity and passion to the table. Bon appétit!
