A private chef is one who possesses a formal culinary education and works for a private family or individual. A private chef differs from a personal chef in that they focus their energy and creativity on one family or individual as opposed to providing occasional chef services to a variety of private clients at one time.
While each position has its unique demands, the duties of a Private Chef often include menu planning, family and staff meal preparation, food shopping, pantry inventory, wine pairing, formal table setting and service, and they may even acts as an in-residence kitchen design consultant. The nature of the position requires a constant “front-of-the-house” attitude.
