Personal chef cost is higher than most

personal chef cost is worth the price

Our personal chef cost, is it worth the price?

At Artful Chefs, our personal chef cost more than most a catering companies. We know this to be true. Are you are looking for a gourmet experience at your dinner party? Then you need to weigh the cost of hiring a professional chef versus just a catering company .


Not all personal chef services are staffed with trained professional chefs, just like not all catering companies are amazing.  If you are on a tight budget and looking for the most inexpensive solution, perhaps a catering company is the best choice. If on the other hand, you are looking for a one of a kind, five star experience for you dinner party,  then call Artful Chefs for personal chef services in San Diego.

Hire the best to get the best result

What makes a great personal chef service in San Diego?   Would you want to trust your plumbing to someone who watched a video and advertises on Craigslist? Of course not.  Every chef has his or her strengths and experience.  If your personal chef can draw from other’s training through an association or if they work with other chefs directly, this is the best solution. No one can be an expert at everything. At Artful Chefs, we have a over 75 years of combined experience to draw from. That is a lot of hours in the kitchen. We know our craft and our reviews speak to that.

Can you recall the best meal you ever had?  What made it great?  Was it the presentation, the aroma, the texture, the flavor or all of those? The best ingredients, tools, time planning and technique were probably key in the finished plate you enjoyed. Chances are, hours went into the preparation of the ingredients.

We believe great food is great art. And all of our personal chefs are talented artisans.

For a one of a kind experience, in the comfort and privacy of your San Diego home, you should call Artful Chefs.  760-419-4609

“We hired Chef Pharrell for a Mothers Day dinner for our family. Very simply, she did what she said that she would do! She was easy to work with to create the menu and very accomodating to our dietary issues. Food looked great and tasted great. It was appreciated by all and made the day all that more special.”
