Vacation is a time for relaxation and being with family and friends. A vacation does not mean Mom is slaving away in the kitchen while the rest of the family plays horseshoes outside their luxury rental property. Why not hire one of our fabulous local private chefs to do some cooking for you!
Our private chefs are more than just excellent cooks, they will also do the meal prep, cooking and the post meal cleaning! Many of our recommended personal chefs also do one other service that we love to offer our guests. Imagine this: you have just spent five long, hot hours in the car driving up from San Francisco. Your kids are full of energy and did not let you relax, mentally or physically. You end up at your rental property in the evening and start unloading the car, only to realize that your perishables perished on the long drive. You have no food for the night. Do you go out to eat? Do you find takeout? Or do you grab your reusable shopping bags and head to Raleys?
Guess what? Our personal chefs will stock your fridge and pantry for your arrival in your rental home. Yes, you read that right. Your fridge and pantry will have everything you need for your vacation, ready for you right when you open the door!
Our personal chefs will take care of everything in the kitchen, so that your whole group can enjoy South Lake Tahoe without the hassles of grocery shopping and cooking. Planning a special date night? Have one of our personal chef’s prepare the meal prior, and let you and your partner enjoy the ambiance. Have a whole house of family, they can create a special menu everyone will love! Coming up for a ladies weekend? Try your own hands in the kitchen with a personalized cooking class!
