A private chef is a chef who is hired by different clients and prepares meals in the clients’ home kitchens, based on their needs and preferences.
A private chef may work for a single private employer or a number of private employers, depending on what opportunities are available in the job market at the time and what one’s personal preferences are. There is also quite a bit of variety from job to job in the work environment for a private chef. A private chef, whose job title and duties is interchangeable with that of a private chef, may perform their work in a large residential home, on a yacht, or even on their employer’s private plane. A private chef may also perform the majority of his or her work independently; or they may work closely with a butler housekeeper to ensure that their employer’s domestic operations run smoothly. Sometimes a private chef will also work as part of a small team for this same reason.
A private chef is responsible for preparing and cooking meals for their employer(s). All duties associated with this responsibility are more often than not assumed solely by the private chef, although in rare cases a private chef may manage a small team that they are able to delegate some of these tasks to. Some private chefs are also called upon to organize special events such as dinner parties and birthday celebrations.
As a Private Chef, you’ll work in accordance to your employer personal schedule. However, most working hours are generally split between lunch and dinner time.
