How to hire a private chef for a night in Asheville

Relax, gather around the kitchen table, sip your favorite beverage, and bond over an exquisite meal…without lifting a finger! We’ll pair you with a local Asheville private chef who will work with you to craft your ideal menu, take care of the grocery shopping, and bring Asheville’s incredible food scene directly to your home or vacation accommodations.

We have an abundant supply of fresh, farm-to-table ingredients in Asheville, so you can select from a variety of menu choices! To give you an idea, you could opt for an in-home chef who specializes in Ayurvedic, Creole, Italian, Southern US, Cantonese, or Mediterranean cuisine. Or you could choose a seasonal, three-course meal highlighting our local produce. With our personal chef services, your dietary restrictions and preferences can all be accommodated. 

And the best part is: your private chef will even take care of cleaning up afterward so you’re free to relax and just enjoy being together!
