Hiring a Private Chef for Your Home

A personal or private chef is hired on either a part or full-time basis by a family or single person. According to the American Personal & Private Chef Association,

“A private chef is employed by one individual or family full time, and often lives in, preparing up to three meals per day. A personal chef serves several clients, usually one per day.”

 

Private chefs work 3-5 days a week in one home as a long-term commitment. Busy professionals, individuals with specific dietary needs and families juggling multiple schedules are households that may employ private chefs. Full-time chefs are commonly paid an annual salary with benefits.

 

Meals are often made according to the personal preferences of the family members. Some chefs specialize in specific foods such as vegan, vegetarian, low salt, low fat, gluten and dairy free, or in specific regions such as French, Asian, Italian and more. A private chef may be asked to stock a family fridge every two to three days or may instead be hired on a full-time, in-house basis and cook fresh meals for the family twice a day.

 

A private chef’s specific duties may include:

- Keeping informed of all food and sanitation rules

- Menu planning based on dietary needs and preferences

- Keeping kitchens clean and organized

- Managing other household staff involved in food prep and serving

- Stocking pantries and refrigerator

- Preparing meals to be reheated by the family later

- Planning and preparing any and all food and drink for events/gatherings in the home

- Preparing healthy snacks that are easily accessible to the family between meal times.
