"It gives me great pleasure to highly recommend HEA! The workers are very professional, work harder than any other agency I have used and most importantly, a pleasure to be around. HEA has helped us staff in the Hamptons, NYC and our boat — and had applicants available to interview the same day we inquired. Hands down the best in the business!!!"

Domestic Chef Description

A Private Chef is responsible for everything food/kitchen-related. A Chef plans and prepares all meals for the Employer family (and possibly the household staff as well), performs organization and kitchen clean-up, and does shopping for all food and food-related supplies.

A Personal Chef's responsibility also includes preparing food for parties, holiday meals, and special functions. These culinary professionals are generally highly skilled in preparing a range of dishes to meet specific tastes and particular dietary requirements. A Private Chef can plan and prepare a menu ranging from traditional, to gourmet, to gluten-free, to Kosher, to vegetarian or vegan, depending on your preferences. (Please note that we also provide Personal and Family Cooks who can provide family meal preparation, grilling, etc.).

Salary for a Private Chef depends on your location, the particular job requirements, and the level of experience of the Chef Applicant. Benefits, perks, and other forms of compensation provided by the Employer also affect salary requirements.

Our Domestic Staffing Specialists can help you find the right person for a range of positions, including the following:
