Perfect for any special occasion

Chef Andrea was so amazing, and based on the group’s feedback the food was also super delicious. Fresh ingredients, a wonderful meal cooked to perfection, tons of full bellies. I look forward to working with Chef Andrea again and can’t wait to refer her to my friends!

Incredible!

Chef Andrea is incredible! She is so kind and professional and her food is absolutely delicious! She made my Mom’s 70th birthday dinner so special! Every course was carefully curated and cooked with love. She was organized and clean and everything you would want in a private chef! Thank you so much!

Amazing!!

I would like to give a huge Thank You to Food Fire + Knives and Chef Andrea for coming out and catering for my birthday!  First of all, the raw veggies were beautiful and I just knew that the food would be top quality.  All of the dishes were amazing! Although out of the 8 of us that dined, only two of us were Vegan, I can honestly say that EVERYONE loved the food.  There was no food left behind.  I was happy that my wife doesn’t eat much, so I did have the opportunity to take her entree home and have for dinner the following night.  I would definitely recommend them and absolutely love to have them cater for me again.

She was professional, engaging and entertaining to watch while she and her souse chef prepared our meal. And as promised my kitchen was cleaner than when they started!

Chef Andrea is Fantastic

We had an excellent evening meal prepared by Chef Andrea. The food was top notch at every course – well cooked, flavorful, and perfect portions.

Chef Andrea was also so professional – very flexible, timely, efficient and really looked after us. We would recommend her to anyone and hope to try more of her food soon.

Chef Andrea is the Best!! 5++++Stars!!

We loved Chef Andrea and her team! She is so kind and down-to-earth! After our planning phone call, and then especially after our event, I felt like I had known her for years! She eloquently planned our menu with me – even offering helpful suggestions and details for the best dinner spread for our end of year party! I had a lot of pressure to make our event wonderful and she definitely made all of my stress disappear. The night of our event was spectacular!! Her food was AMAZING!! …and all of the guests raved with compliments about her delicious food and beautiful presentation as well!! She even made a special dessert for a guest that has dietary restrictions. If you are unsure about choosing a chef (like I was at first), Chef Andrea will put you at ease and take all of the stress of planning a fantastic meal for you and your guests!! I will definitely be staying in touch with her and planning future dinner events with her!! She is truly a gem!!

And a special note to Chef Andrea…
Chef Andrea, Thank you again for all of your help and our wonderful dinner night!! I appreciate it so much!!

Many Thanks! Take care and we will talk soon!!
Your friend,
Shea

Great Experience!

Chef Andrea Williams was wonderful. She was booked for dinner 9/2 and brunch 9/3. She was professional and everything was perfect. Food was delicious!!! The Mediterranean chicken and shrimp were our guests favorite. Although, everything was delicious. I will absolutely book another event with Chef Andrea! Thank you!!!

Best Birthday Brunch

Great service, best food and wonderful options (including vegan options). A pleasure to work with and very accommodating. Thank you! I look forward to booking with Andrea again. Everything about our experience from the customer service response on the app and text, to menu options, and making updates to the number of our guests was smooth and easy. Thank you!

Girls Night Out

Chef Andrea was a dream. I had a dinner for 9 ladies that all work together. We were able to enjoy ourselves while Chef Andrea got to work. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly. And the kitchen looked like she had not even been there when she left. I would highly recommend using her and plan to again!

Bachelorette for the books!!

Andrea is AMAZING!! We hosted a surprise bachelorette party for our friend and wanted something low key for the final night, as we had six different states to travel home to in the morning. Her It’s A Party selections did not disappoint. The appetizers (especially the mini loaded potatoes) went very quickly and her homemade Cesar dressing was delicious. Most of us shamelessly tried all three dessert shooters because they were so good. Oreo was definitely the fan fave! Not only was the food all amazing, but so was the service. Andrea and her daughter were both so kind and did an amazing job cleaning up at the end so that we could spend our final hours together catching up. I wish I lived in Atlanta so I could use her services again, but our group loved her so much we suggested our Air bnb add her to their list of “things to do” provided in the home. Thank you again for a great night Andrea!!

Exceeded Our Expectations!

Last evening at our home, the food prepared by Chef Andrea and her sous chef was outstanding – fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The chefs were extremely pleasant; we all enjoyed talking with them and watching them work. This experience came as a Christmas gift certificate from our granddaughter and her husband. I followed up with the planning details. It was the “French Laundry” at home with our personal favorites! It far exceeded our expectations!

A perfect birthday celebration

We recently had Chef Andrea Williams at our house for a birthday lunch. Wow! We were blown away with the gourmet food the Chef prepared. Each dish was carefully, artistically prepared and tasted wonderful. The courses were served to each of our party of 6 as if we were at a 5 star restaurant. What was most impressive is the Chef worked within the kitchen as if it were her own. They cleaned up so well afterwards that you couldn’t tell they had just prepared a 4 course meal! I highly recommend FFK and Chef Andrea!

Amazing for Mother’s Day

It was a amazing experience for all the moms on mothers day. We were amazed by Chef Andrea who stood in for Chef John and had some of the best prepared food. Really enjoyed the dinner!

A lovely culinary experience!

Andrea was fantastic from start to finish! She worked with me to create a custom fall menu for my birthday. She also offered options for my friends with dietary restrictions. The food was wonderful, especially the pumpkin chickpea soup and the mushroom risotto! Andrea also made sure to clean everything she used of ours and she handled all the serving dishes and even brought linen napkins.

I would absolutely recommend Andrea for your private dining event!


How to Hire a Private Chef for Your Event

  • Pick a place, date, and time.
  • Select your chef and menu. (Each chef offers different menus which are fully a la carte. Simply choose the dishes you want for your occasion.)
  • Add details like the number of guests and any special instructions.
  • Pay for your reservation. Make any changes or even cancel up to a week before your event for a refund.
  • After you’ve made a reservation, the private chef you’ve hired will reach out within 48 hours to confirm the details and coordinate their arrival.
  • If you’ve added any special dietary restrictions or event instructions, they’ll work with you to implement those.
  • Your chef will arrive with everything they need, including ingredients, cooking equipment, and cleaning supplies. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the day with your guests.
  • The cleanup is included too! Hire a private chef with us and know that we’ll likely leave your kitchen cleaner than when you gave it to us.

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
