Book a Chef at Home: 7 Reasons You Should Do It

Collaborate and design the perfect menu with your Chef.

Upgrading your mealtime experience just got a whole lot easier! Fine dining shouldn't be limited to restaurants and special occasions, such as the holidays or hosting the next big event. In fact, you can hire a personal chef to come to your home for any occasion on any day of the week. 

INTUEAT allows you to experience in-home chef services so you can host like you're one of the guests. This means everything is handled for you. From meal planning to shopping, preparation, and more — you can sit back and relax as you wine and dine the way you deserve.

7 Reasons To Hire Professional Chefs

Now more than ever, booking a chef at home is affordable and convenient! Not only does it eliminate the stress behind planning a nice meal, but it also brings you professionally prepared meals right to your home table without having to rely on delivery or takeout. Sounds like a dream, right? Let's make it a reality.

1. Delight Family and Friends

You deserve to live in the moment! With a personal chef, hosting dinner nights will feel like you're going to a party where you can enjoy yourself alongside your guests. 

You don't have to worry about planning a nice meal, rushing to the grocery store to get everything, prepping the food, cooking, or cleaning up afterward. Your only "job" is to show up like the rest of the guests and eat your favorite dishes as you make memories that will last a lifetime.

2. Eat a More Varied Diet

Day-to-day life can be overwhelmingly busy sometimes, leaving you with little time to plan healthy meals. Between work, hobbies, and the daily hustle, it can be easy to forget your shopping list or skip out on meals you love just because they take a little extra time in the kitchen to prepare. According to surveys conducted by Morning Consult, there's been roughly a 60% increase in dining out over the last two years, and only a little over 1/3 of Americans find time to cook meals at home every day.

When you book a chef at home, you immediately eliminate those barriers. It's as simple as communicating a few details like the dishes you'd like them to prepare or asking for recommendations including your favorite ingredients. Not only does this ensure you get the meals and the nourishment you want, but it also reduces stress, which can boost your overall health.

3. Save Time Cooking and Grocery Shopping

When you hire a chef at home, you can say goodbye to spending hours making a grocery list, driving to and shopping at the store, unloading groceries, and then trying to prep and cook everything in the kitchen. A recent poll showed that the average adult spends a little over an hour in the kitchen each day, which can be over 400 hours per year, not including time spent researching ingredients and shopping for groceries. 

Even if it's just for a meal or two, hiring an at-home chef means you can unwind and relax without worrying about the finer details. With extra hours before your dinner party, you could catch up on your favorite series, exercise, enjoy being outdoors, or indulge in some additional downtime.

4. Expand Your Taste

You may have a meal in mind when you hire a chef, but sometimes it's nice to get a little adventurous and try something new at your next event. INTUEAT connects with some of the finest chefs around the world, many of whom have a repertoire of fine cuisines you may enjoy. 

Perhaps you've always wanted to try a specialty fish or a tasty homemade pasta but haven't had the time or know-how to make it. This is your chance to explore various dishes and to do so in the comfort of your own home. Additionally, chefs can accommodate for dietary needs and ensure all the ingredients are up to your unique standards.

5. Surprise the One You Love

Do you have a special occasion coming up, or do you want to do something extra special for somebody you love? Booking an at-home chef can be a unique and unforgettable surprise. 

Whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, or just because, a private chef can add a little sparkle and flair to your night in. You can indulge in fine dining and wine to make everyone feel like they're getting the superstar treatment.

6. Spend More Time With Guests

As exciting and entertaining as hosting can be, one downside to it is that most of the time, the host spends half of their time in the kitchen checking the menus and ensuring everything is ready to serve. 

When you book your own private chef, you can take advantage of quality time with your guests and spend more of your time engaging in conversation and making memories together.

7. Outstanding Experience

Truly the event of bringing vetted private chefs into your home is an amazing experience. When you hire a private chef to craft a memorable meal you get delicious food and a fantastic service.

Additionally, personal chefs put more focus and effort into preparing your personalized meal rather than rushing to cook meals for an entire restaurant. This gives you better quality food for your special event or birthday celebration.
