We have had the pleasure of creating intimate dinners, through to large birthday celebrations with customised menus to suit, for the Sofield's at their holiday house in Gracetown WA with family and friends. Here they answer a few questions to express their experience of private dining with Chef de Home.
1. What made you consider using a Private Chef service?
We were looking for a private dinning experience where we could host friends at our beach house (without doing the dishes).
2. Had you used a Private Chef before using Chef de Home?
Yes. Over the years we have tried a few Private Chefs. However, by far the best all round experience has been with Chef de Home. We wont use anyone else.
3. How do you think it compares to going out for dinner?
Slightly more expensive than dining out. However, when you consider you are eating from your own customised menu and the quality of food. Plus intimate surroundings and privacy of your own home. It works out cheaper. We watched the sun set over Gracetown bay as Entree was being served on our main deck area. It was a bucket list moment.
4. What did your guests say about their experience?
Our guests were super excited and blown away with the whole gourmet style experience of a Chef cooking a custom meal in our home.
5. What was the highlight of your experience with Chef de Home?
There have been several highlights. But the two standouts were when Chef Francesca prepared a Main Fish meal made from Blue Bone Groper for our 28th wedding anniversary (8 per). It was an absolutely exceptional meal and reminded me of my late fathers favourite fish. He was a Professional Fisherman and only ate the best fish in the sea. The other was when Fish and Chips was served up at my 50th Birthday party (100 per). Only to discover the fish was Red Emperor.
6. If you could sum up your experience in one sentence, what would that be?
Chef de Home offer a "Unique, Intimate, Gourmet level experience". Just do it!
