Your Personal Chef questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much does a personal chef cost?

On average, a personal chef costs $40 to $100 per hour or $50 to $130 per person. Some personal chefs charge per year, month, or day. Many charge $200 to $750 per week to prepare meals that you can reheat during the week. A personal chef's fee for a one-time dinner party is $300 to $1,600.

On the other hand, a private chef costs $5,000 to $10,000 per month or $60,000 to $120,000 per year, depending on their experience and how many hours they work. They usually work full time, up to 60 hours per week. Some private chefs charge per hour or day to create food for a one-time dinner party, but most work receive a regular salary from a single client.

What does a personal chef do?

A personal chef prepares meals for a family or client, either for a one-time dinner or on a regular basis. Many personal chefs will make a fresh meal once per week for clients and prepare reheat-able meals that their clients can heat up on their own later.

Is a personal chef worth it?

Personal chefs are worth it if you don’t have the time or ability to cook and have enough money to pay someone to cook for you. A personal chef can help you:

  • Save time on grocery shopping and cooking
  • Eat healthier foods and avoid fast food
  • Try different kinds of foods and expand your palette
  • Throw a dinner party or holiday dinner

How is a personal chef different from a private chef?

A personal chef is a cook that prepares food for one or more families, typically on a weekly or one-time basis. They may have several clients at a time and usually charge less than private chefs.

In contrast, private chefs typically prepare meals full-time for one family at a time which pays them a yearly salary. Private chefs charge more than personal chefs because they often have more experience and prepare more fresh meals instead of packaged meals made in advance.

How do I choose a personal chef?

You can follow these steps to make sure you hire the best possible personal chef:

  • Compare multiple quotes from reputable chefs near you.
  • Read chefs' reviews on Fash and Google.
  • Ask for a detailed quote and contract in writing.
  • Ask about their training and experience.
  • Ask what fees they charge and how they handle paying for groceries.
  • Make sure they have experience with any dietary needs you may have.

What questions should I ask personal or private chefs?

To make sure you find the candidate that will work best with your family, ask these questions:

  • What are your rates? Do you charge per person, per hour, per week, or something else?
  • Where did you receive your training or culinary education?
  • How many years of relevant experience do you have?
  • Where will be preparing the food?
  • Do you charge extra for groceries, or will I reimburse you after you shop?
  • Do you have experience with any specific dietary restrictions?
  • How soon can you start if we decide you're a good fit?
  • Do you charge extra for food delivery?
  • Do you have a set menu with rotating recipes, or could we make a customized meal plan?
