Just about anyone who thinks they can cook can call themselves a private chef and put the “open for business” message out. But if you want a quality chef who isn’t just doing it as a side job, it’s a mistake to just Google “private chef services near me” and choose at random. When you sit down for an intimate dinner for two or have your gathering catered, you want to make sure that the food lives up to everyone’s expectations. Don’t choose randomly – here are four reasons to hire me.
This Isn’t a Side Job for Me
Some people can cook two or three dishes well, and then some people have a passion for cooking and put their love and inspiration into every meal they create. Being a private chef in Johns Island isn’t just a side job for me; it’s what I do for a living, and I’m loving it. Every time I get to cater a meal for an anniversary or special occasion, I not only give it my all; you get all that I promised from start to finish. I think the small details mean the most, and I always strive to go above and beyond to please!
It Takes Experience
A good private chef makes it look easy, but it isn’t. Being able to cook a meal in the timeframe necessary, sometimes with limited accommodations, and working on time crunches is not a simple process – but I make it look like it is. The last thing you want is a caterer who is fumbling around, serving dishes that don’t look 100% amazing, things that are cold or overcooked, or running around and being stressed out. The reason you hire a private chef is to take away the stress of serving food. I understand that you want a laid-back feel and I have the experience to make it flawless and stress-free for you – just what it should be!
I Have Professional Training
There aren’t many occupations that require no training or education to put a label on your services, like a private chef. You don’t even need a license in some instances. I love cooking so much that I went to school to learn how to be the best! I believe that it absolutely does take skill, but it also takes education and training to get it right, just like everything else. I invested in learning pro techniques because I want to deliver a meal that will wow you and your guests 100% of the time.
The “C” in Customization
There are many Cs that come into play as a chef: it requires customization, cutting-edge techniques, caring, courtesy, catering, and many more. I know that it isn’t about what I like to eat or my favorites; it’s all about my clients, which is the most important “C” there is. Nothing makes me happier than to see that look when people take a bite of my food for the first time. Pleasing people with my food is like heaven to me, and I listen very carefully to what you want to get it right 100% of the time.
When we want a product or service, the first place we head is to the internet to Google something like “private chef services near me.” Although that is a great first step, make sure to do some research. What you will find is that you can’t go wrong by hiring me. I go to great lengths to make sure that your event, however big or small, is exactly as you want it.
