Amber cooked one evening for our family vacation and we were impressed! She set up and was able to prepare our delicious meal in a somewhat small kitchen area. Everything was seasoned very well and flavorful! She took care of cleaning up and left the kitchen in better shape than when she arrived.
Amber exceeded our expectations and we would recommend her anytime!
We had Chef Amber as Chef Aaron had moved. She made an amazing meal! Everyone was impressed with how good it was, including my 90 year old Grandma who we were celebrating. Chef Amber was also super communicative leading up to the dinner. I would use her again on my next Asheville visit.
We just finished an amazing week with chef Amber! She came to our vacation rental to cook dinner nightly for our family (4 adults and 3 kids). Her menus were innovative and the dishes were all delicious! She was so accommodating to special requests and so much fun to engage with! She even brought special fruits and other goodies to entice our youngest children to eat! She even went as far as to give a baking and science lesson to two of our boys! She was a welcomed addition to our family for the week and we were sad to say goodbye. We can’t wait to have her cook for us again! Highly recommend booking chef amber for all your dining needs! She excels at fine dining, family dining and even brunch! And her desserts are so light that there is always room for them even after a large meal! We will definitely be booking her again as soon as we are back in the area!

Cooking is the only thing I’ve ever really done for work. I happened upon a summer job as a prep cook at the local country club and just never managed to stop cooking. Currently age 25, I have participated as the opening Executive Chef for 3 restaurants, I have also consulted for the rebranding and opening of two others. I believe in vibrant, bold, and flavorful food that makes a statement with just a touch of whimsy and some charm to boot. While I enjoy learning and exploring all cuisines, my focus is a healthy combination of Mediterranean and New England/New American, though admittedly, being a Chef in the south, I can make some mean southern food with a colorful twist.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
