5 Reasons Why Personal Dining Rivals Eating Out

Private dining experiences are becoming even more commonplace, with a rise in demand in recent years. The surge has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, as restaurants and dining establishments have been forced to close their doors. In the U.S., a dedicated private chef organisation, the United States Personal Chef Association, estimates that 100,000 families employ chefs compared to a mere 1,000 a decade ago and that the change is visible around the world. There are other factors that have sparked interest for people to hire personal chefs, like the popularity of culinary shows, including MasterChef Australia, Iron Chef Australia, Food Safari and more.

For decades, personal chef services were a defining factor of your social class, deemed essential for the rich and wealthy, as A-listers, fashion industry jetsetters and even members of royalty using personal chefs at home, on set, for work or for travel.

Now, as it is becoming even more affordable and accessible, is the industry set to explode?


Here are the top five benefits of hiring a personal chef

1. Quality time with family and friends

As a guest at your own private dining experience, you get to sit back, relax and enjoy the evening with your guests. Spend some quality time with your favourite few, without worrying about having to leave the table by a certain time.

2. The world is your oyster

Quite literally anything is on the menu at your casa. With a diverse range of cuisines and delectable dishes offered by a personal chef, YOU get to curate your own menu for an unforgettable dining experience. And don't forget about the dietaries. Your chef will cater to any food allergies or intolerances, from gluten-free or vegan-friendly, to no dairy - nothing is too challenging.

3. It might just be more affordable

Let's be honest, eating out can be expensive. When you factor in that you're not only paying for the meal, but the venue, wait staff and time, one estimate suggests that half the price you pay per dish goes to something other than the price of the ingredients.

4. Leave the planning to the experts

Similar to hiring a gardener to trim the bushes, or a cleaner to spruce up your home, a personal chef will do all of the planning for you. All you have to do is choose the cuisine and select the final menu. They bring the ingredients and the skills, so, delegate the cooking to a professional and enjoy a stress-free dinner party.

5. Someone else does the cleaning

News flash! Hiring a Chefly chef to do the cooking, means that they also do the cleaning up afterwards too! You get the convenience of enjoying uninterrupted time at the dinner table while your kitchen is returned to its sparkling clean state again. Need we say any more?
