Chef Adi’s elevated steak and potatoes dinner was absolutely wonderful! Such great way to celebrate a special birthday with friends and family!

Romantic Valentine’s Day Dinner

My wife and I are still reminiscing about the unique and delightful experience we had for Valentine’s Day dinner. We hired Chef Adi Marie Zastrow to cook the Seafood Lover dinner for us at our home. Chef Adi’s culinary flair is outstanding! We ordered shrimp salad and mussels to kick start the evening. The appetizers were a hit! Chef Adi prepared the Sea Bass and Salmon entrees with a creamy risotto and Brussels sprouts. Both entrees were incredibly flavorful. We shared the Chocolate Molten Cake for dessert. This may have been the best chocolate dessert we ever had. Chef Adi was very professional. We have never experienced anything like this, and are already planning to have Chef Adi back. I highly recommend Chef Adi as your personal chef. You will not be disappointed.

Special Birthday for Mom Made Even Better!

Chef Adi made the most wonderful dinner for my family to celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday. Her food was incredible with robust flavors and cooked to perfection. She was so wonderful to speak and converse with throughout the evening and really made the overall experience amazing for my family. She even came with fresh flowers for my mom and it was such a lovely gesture and so appreciated. From the salad, bruschetta, steak, potatoes, asparagus, and chocolate lava cake everything was delicious and prepared so well. Once she left, it hadn’t even looked like she was there at all everything was so well cleaned and picked up. Thank you so much Chef Adi for an amazing experience!

Chef Adi Marie

With over 17 years in various restaurant kitchens, I’ve held many different titles, from sauté cook to Executive Pastry Chef. I also decided to get my associates degree of applied science from Le Cordon Bleu in 2008, even though I believe I was just born with the skills. I truly love making and creating food as much as I love making people happy with the food I put out.
If there happens to be a specific dish or cuisine you are interested in and I don’t have it as a selection, as well as any variation of what I do have posted, just ask, I can make just about anything and I am more than happy to accommodate. Cheers!

Our Top FAQs

1. Can I customize the menu?

Absolutely! All our menus are fully a la carte. Once you’ve decided on a chef, you’ll see a list of all the dishes they offer and you can choose the ones you’d like for your event.

2. How is your service priced?

You pay a fixed price per guest based on your menu, plus a small, all-inclusive booking fee to our platform. You’ll be able to see exactly what you’re paying when you make a booking. No hidden costs, ever.

3. How many guests can I invite?

As many as you like! Although for events with over 30 people, we ask that you reach out to us to make an event inquiry.

4. My group has multiple dietary restrictions

That’s absolutely fine! When finalizing your menu, please mention these under ‘Special Instructions.’ For instance, you can specify that you’d like to accommodate one vegan guest and one gluten-free guest for your at-home catering and your private chef will prepare suitable dish variants for those guests.

5. Can I make changes to the menu or guest list?

Yes! You can make any changes to your booking. You can even cancel it up to a week before your event, and you’ll receive a refund.

6. Is my event insured?

Yes, it is. Our service includes full insurance for your private chef in case of any mishaps.

Each chef is fully vetted. We require at minimum one year of sous chef experience. Your chef has gone through an FCRA compliant background check and multiple interviews before joining our platform.

8. What is FFKs cancellation and refund policy?

We take pre-payment to secure your chef and simplify our service. No fumbling with payments after your event or dealing with multiple payments in different stages of the process. Much like our service, our return policy is simple and meant to protect you, our hosts and our amazing Chefs.
  • One week or more before your event we guarantee your refund.
  • During the week of your event we offer a 50% refund.
  • We will not be able to refund within 48 hours of your event. At this point your chef has not been available for other parties and has already planned for your event. *Please note all refunds are less processing and booking fees
