What is a Private Chef?

Private chefs can cook all of your meals in your home, or travel with you and cook on yachts, private planes, and vacation homes. You can also hire a private chef to work full-time for an organization, company, or event venue. Private chefs are available for hire for a month, week, or even a day.
