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!

Looking for something unique? You might also be interested in our virtual cooking classes to connect with loved ones near and far. And, if you’re interested in getting out-and-about to explore the beverage scene, our Asheville winery tours are so much fun!

Are beverages included?

Private chef services are BYOB. Our chefs are happy to create wine, cocktail, or beer pairing suggestions for an additional fee or you can upgrade to include a full wine tasting with a certified Sommelier before your dinner! You’re also welcome to bring your own tasty adult beverages but please note that you must be 21+ to consume alcohol.

What is your cancellation policy?

Due to the customizable nature of this experience, full group cancellations more than 31 days in advance of your scheduled private chef service are refundable minus a $200/group administrative fee plus any fees charged by our local partners. Out of respect for the chef’s time, cancellations from 31-0 days prior to your scheduled service are non-refundable.

Group size decreases will be accepted up to 3 days prior to your scheduled experience without penalty as long as minimum group size thresholds are met. Out of respect for your chef’s time, group size decreases between 3-0 days prior to your scheduled experience are non-refundable and no store credits will be issued within that window.

Your role: If you feel ill, are experiencing Covid-related symptoms, or have been in contact with a person with a confirmed case of Covid 19 in the past two weeks, please stay home and let us know as soon as possible. Our stated cancellation policy will still apply. If you are concerned about the risks of last minute cancellation, please consider taking out travel insurance.

These minimums and policies ensure all experience providers, guides, instructors, etc are paid a living wage for their work. Thank you for your understanding as we strive to remain as flexible as possible!

How far in advance should I book?

Due to the popular and customized nature of this service, we recommend reserving your date and time as soon as possible and at least 14 days prior to your event. Though we can often fulfill a request with less lead time, a nice window of time allows for a relaxed planning experience.

Your safety and the safety of our facilitators and community is of the utmost importance. To that end, we’ve taken a close look at our policies and procedures and have updated protocols for each tour, service, and experience we offer.

You can review all of our Covid-19 policies for full details. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have further questions or concerns. We’d love to chat with you!
