Once known as a luxury to the rich and famous, hiring a private chef is now more accessible and widely used throughout Australia, than ever before. Perth based, Chef de Home started in-home private chef experiences in 2012 and has since grown to house a team of Chefs through WA, and now providing services in Sydney and Melbourne.
Throughout Australia, people have a strong relationship with food and with new restaurants, bars and cafés, food blogs and exposure on television; they are more sophisticated and yet adventurous in their selection. Booking a Private Chef for a dinner party, engagement or celebration, offers something a little unexpected by guests and it’s exciting transforming your home into your own personal fine dining experience.
Chef and Owner, Ben Munro had travelled and tasted his way through Asia, the Middle East and Europe before returning to Perth, where he had the idea to showcase his experiences in people’s homes.
“When it comes to food, the one thing I am most passionate about is sharing it with people and what better way to experience this than by creating meals in people’s home,” Ben said.
The Chef de Home service allows people to experience fine dining without leaving the home, no need to worry about booking an Uber, booking a babysitter and paying excessive wine prices. The Chef and wait staff take care of everything from setting the table, all food is cooked on site and cooking/serving equipment provided. They even leave the kitchen cleaner than it was found!
Planning a function has never been simpler, with each Chef featuring their own custom seasonal menu that guests select from prior to the evening. When booking a Private Chef all that needs to be done is get ready and enjoy the company of your guests.
