1. Amazen Chef Creations
|Address||4033 Joyce Blvd, Houston|
|Contact Number||+1 713-446-2162|
Amazen Chef Creation is one of the best options for those who are looking for luxurious dining experiences with premium food selection and don’t mind spending more for that.
It’s especially ideal if you’re looking for an amazing and fun experience.
One of the biggest reasons why we included Amazen on our list is because of the variety of meal services it provides. From small, intimate parties of 8-10 guests to elaborate gatherings of 400 guests, we were impressed by their service range.
This mainly shows how the team of chefs at Amazen is experienced and well-trained to handle the two very different meal services. We feel that it showcases the abilities of their chefs right away if it’s able to offer these types of services.
We also appreciated the various samples that we offered to us that helped us choose the menu we wanted for the occasion. We feel that being able to not only sample potential dishes but also make personal adjustments to each of them is a must.
One of the few things we disliked about its services was that compared to other private chefs, Amazen was less experienced and was more expensive.
2. Chef TWhite
|Contact Number||+1 713-423-4837|
Chef TWhite is an ideal choice for those who want a fully personalized private chef who caters menus to your exact tastes and preferences. It’s especially ideal for small and intimate gatherings or parties that you want to elevate with the help of a private chef.
We love that its services feature a series of set menus that provide you with a baseline of what you can expect for each meal. This is beneficial for those who are looking for a catering service or just have a large number of people to feed for an event.
We were also impressed that you can take this further and customize the menu for the occasion depending on your budget, dietary restrictions, and so on. We feel that this level of customization is a necessary feature to have for private chefs.
We also appreciate the professionalism its staff has in each meal service. This keeps the quality of its service high and enhances the overall dining experience.
There were a few things that we disliked, however, it had very limited support hours which made it difficult to speak personally about our reservation. This was odd given that its main selling point was personalized service.
We also disliked that its non-refundable deposits were among the highest of any private chef on our list.
3. Maria’s Gourmet Kitchen
|Address||8338 Park Pl Blvd, Houston|
|Contact Number||+1 844-233-2433|
Maria’s Gourmet Kitchen is an amazing alternative choice for those who are looking for more of a personal chef that provides an excellent meal delivery service. This is a great choice if you still want to cook your own meals but don’t want to think about a recipe.
While not exactly a private chef, Maria’s Gourmet Kitchen is an excellent starting point for those who want to get into or try out a private chef. You still get high-quality, delicious meals without having to shop or prepare all the ingredients and recipes.
We love that its services allow you to choose the exact specifications of your meal, including when you want the meal to be delivered to your home and the quantity. This further emphasizes that you have control over how much you want of its service.
It’s also an amazing option if you want a professionally prepared meal but find most private chefs to be outside your budget range. We feel that its affordable and flexible prices are its biggest strength among the private chefs on our list.
Overall, it’s a different experience compared to the other options on our list but it’s still an exceptional service if you’re looking for gourmet meals on a budget.
4. The Saucey Gourmet
|Contact Number||+1 346-531-4204|
The Saucey Gourmet is an ideal choice for those who want a taste of the high life from a private chef who has catered to the celebrities and professional athletes. It’s especially ideal if you’re looking for a private chef who specializes in regional dishes.
One of the main reasons why we included the Saucey Gourmet on our list is because of the chef’s professional experience and decorated track record. This is particularly evident in the chef’s knowledge of different regional cuisines from different continents.
We love that its services provide a weekly meal service where its team comes personally to prepare a meal for you and your family. This is ideal for those who may have busy schedules and can’t put aside time to prepare nutritious meals every day.
One of the drawbacks of its high-quality services is its price. If you aren’t looking for a dedicated private chef for weekly meals or a private chef for major occasions on a budget, then you should consider other options.
We also didn’t like that it didn’t have a physical office where you could easily contact the team in person. This could be a cause for concern for those who want to meet the chef and team in person before working with them.
5. Your Private Chef
|Address||410 S Fry Rd, Katy|
|Contact Number||+1 281-513-1833|
Your Private Chef is one of the best options for private chefs if you’re looking for a fully personalized service where you aren’t blindsided by the price after service. It’s also a great choice if you want to learn directly under a professional chef of many years.
We love that its services provide a transparent pricing guide to help you gauge what you’re looking for and help you not get carried away with requests. In this sense, it’s one of the most cost-effective options on our list, since you see exactly what goes into it.
We appreciate that this private chef also provides private classes for those who want to improve their cooking or learn how to cook gourmet meals for special occasions. This makes us feel it’s committed to helping its clients eat healthy and consistently.
We were also delighted to find out that its service also features a city food tour where you’re accompanied by the chef on a food crawl through Houston. This is a unique spin and gimmick for private chefs and we love to see it.
More than a private chef in your home, you could also get a private food guide that can help you discover amazing hole-in-the-wall restaurants throughout Houston.
