Private Chef Recruitment

Find A Private Chef From Our Exclusive Agency

At Melissa Offer Private Staffing, we can provide private chef services that deliver a Michelin star standard of cuisine for households and events when required. We also offer opportunities to find the perfect live-in chef to assist you every day.

We are becoming more conscious of what we put in our bodies and how food is prepared. Food is an integral part of our health and culture and plays a significant role in family life. Because of this, requests for private chefs and personal chefs are becoming increasingly popular.  

Our candidates are trained professionals, experienced in producing luxury hotel catering experiences and trained in a wide range of varied cuisine, from British, Mediterranean, and French to Asian, Middle Eastern, Japanese and Fusion.

Live-in Chefs That Work With Your Needs

We understand that every person and household has particular preferences and dietary requirements, so all of our chefs will work closely with their employers to cater to specific personal preferences and needs. In addition to it, we only hire adaptive and experienced chefs that can adjust to your needs and requirements.

Our private chefs can cook a range of cuisines catering for specific dietary requirements such as low calorie, low fat, low sodium, Kosher, Halal, vegetarian, vegan, macrobiotic, diabetic, gluten and dairy-free.

It’s essential that you not only trust your private chef but that they understand the unique requirements that you or your family have. For seamless integration into your home and personal life, the best thing you can do is count on a professional agency to hire a personal chef for you.

In-depth knowledge of global cuisines, cooking procedures, and cultural differences is also critically important when hiring a personal chef for private households. 

All the candidates associated with our private chef services are impeccably trained to provide comprehensive cooking that suits your needs. After listening to your needs and expectations, our director will give you the best advice.

What Is A Private Chef Responsible For?

A highly skilled private chef is responsible for preparing and presenting your food to a high standard – regardless of whether that’s your daily breakfast or a high society dinner.

At Melissa Offer Private staffing, we can match you with either a personal chef at home or a live-out position, often in more than one location. Still, the role generally remains the same – they must cook for you, your family, guests, and fellow staff.

Being able to present menus for approval and discuss daily requirements with the employer or House Manager is an essential skill for a private chef, as is the ability to keep the kitchen in good condition, clean and hygienic at all times.

Other essential criteria and requirements that we set to all potential candidates must know and include:

  • Menu Planning
  • Innovative
  • Shopping for seasonal and local produce
  • Versatile
  • Flexible
  • Ability to manage a budget and keep accurate records
  • Service-Oriented
  • Advanced knowledge of food profession principles and practices
  • Ability to meet deadlines and stay calm under pressure
  • Ability to multitask
  • Genuine passion
