16 Jun Benefits of Private Chefs for Events
Here at Le Frog, we offer a wide range of catering services from our base in Devon, including private chefs for events. Today we are going to shine the spotlight on our provision of private chefs for events, looking at the benefits that you could be taking advantage of with our event catering services in Devon and surrounding areas.
What is a Private Chef?
Here at Le Frog, we use the term ‘private chef’, as opposed to ‘personal chef’, to refer to a chef that is hired specifically for an event. Whether you require a private chef for weddings, a charity event, corporate event, or different kinds of celebrations or parties, a private chef is sure to make your event a success. Read on to find out more about private chefs and the benefits of hiring one for your event.
Adaptable to Your Venue
Private chefs work within the venue of your choice, whether a hired space or within a regular domestic kitchen. For this reason, private chefs are highly adaptable in the way that they work, depending on the given workspace. Therefore, it is not necessary to have a highly advanced kitchen as such chefs have the flexibility to work anywhere. Food requiring heavy preparation is usually done in advance in order to minimise the time spent in the kitchen, so you can focus on enjoying your meal. We make sure to leave the kitchen space exactly as it is found, with washing up done and put away by the end of the day.
Variety is the Spice of Life
When you hire a private chef, it is often something that is new for guests, making it a special and unique experience. Whether you would like our private Devon chef to supply our famous French cuisine, or something else, we offer a range of menus, which can be tailored to your requirements. We then recommend that you select no more than three dishes from each course. There is no need for each guest to eat the same dishes, so you can benefit from a varied and enjoyable menu. With the chef arriving between one to one and a half hours before the meal time, you will then enjoy up to two hours of fine dining from the comfort of your home or in your chosen event venue.
Perfect for Event Planning
When planning an event, food is one of the most important aspects that celebratory events often centre around. The tradition of feasting goes hand-in-hand with celebrations, so hiring a private chef is perfect for planning your event. When you make your booking, we only ask for a 20% non-refundable deposit, which will be offset against the cost of your final invoice. You then have 14 days before the events, where we require individual guests’ orders, and once we have received this, we can then confirm the remaining balance, which is due within ten days before the event. As well as the hire of the chef, the overall cost includes any food, travel, cutlery and crockery and VAT.
