Private Chef In Action

We are happy to assist you with any specific needs. Our private chefs will create and present menus for approval (usually for lunch and dinner each day and sometimes breakfast), shop for groceries, prepare the meals and, when no other staff is present, serve and clean up.

Private Chefs

PCI’s chefs excel in everything from soup to dessert and have a talent for finding the best ingredients and appliances, an eye for tabletop arrangements, and a knack for kitchen management. Our chefs are particularly adept at accommodating your daily schedule and your travel itinerary.

PCI places two types of chefs: live-in and live-out. The former receive living quarters (often the equivalent of a small apartment), board and sometimes the use of a car.
