Personal Chef Costs

Personal Chef Costs

For many people, hiring a personal chef for the first time can be a stressful experience. It’s difficult to know how much a personal chef will charge, especially if you’re booking the chef for a special event or a large group.

How much does a personal chef cost?

Because personal chefs set their own rates, there’s not a standard price that applies to the entire industry. Often, a chef’s rate varies depending on the size of the group. For example, a personal chef cooking for two might charge as much as $100+ per person, while larger groups could see slightly cheaper prices around $60 to $100. Some chefs also charge more for specialty menus with gourmet or exotic dishes.

How much is a private chef?

Private chefs typically spend all of their time preparing meals for a single family, and they may even live with the family. Here at Cozymeal, however, we sometimes use the terms “private chef” and “personal chef” interchangeably, which means you can book a talented private chef for special events or holidays. You can expect to pay a private chef at median living wage for your city. In most parts of the US, this is between $200 to $500 a day. At Cozymeal, chefs generally charge per person, with rates starting at $60 and going up to $125 or more. It’s important to note that this not only covers the chef’s labor, but also the cost of groceries or other supplies.

Cost of private chef for dinner party

Private chef dinner for 2

Few things are more romantic than a private chef dinner for two, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. A special dinner from a private chef might only cost $120 to $200 for both people. You can expect the chef to prepare a special menu exactly to your liking, which may include several courses and a dessert. Some chefs will even help set the atmosphere by offering wine pairings or lovely table dressings.
