Tim

This was our 3rd time with Tim and he didn’t disappoint. Food was amazing yet again. He is an exceptional young chef. I have recommended your site to several people today. Thanks Tim for another memorable experience.

Excellent

Chef Tim – served up an amazing Mexican meal for our bachelorette party! He was thorough from reservation to clean up after the meal! The hardest part was trying to eat it all! Thank you chef Tim!!!

We had the BEST experience with Chef Tim!!

We hired Chef Tim to cook a surprise birthday dinner for my sister and brother in law – and they had an absolutely perfect experience. Chef Tim called me a few days in advance to discuss the menu – we selected his Thai dinner, which turns out is one of his specialties – and he was extremely attentive to her needs and preferences as we discussed the dishes. When he arrived that evening to cook, he was kind and professional… and the food was DELICIOUS. Every dish was thoughtfully prepared and beautifully plated… and he left them with plenty of leftovers to eat for the next few days. He even shared some recipes so they can make some of the things they loved the most. We couldn’t recommend Chef Tim or this experience more. It was truly wonderful, and I hope we’ll be able to work with him again! Thank you, Chef Tim, for making my sister’s birthday so special!!!

  • 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.

7. How are the Chefs chosen?

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
