If you are passionate about cooking and delivering exceptional dining experiences, working with Select Chef could be a great idea. Do you enjoy being around people and seeing others enjoy your food? Select Chef could be a great entry into a career as a personal chef or a way for professional chefs and caterers to supplement their businesses in slower event seasons.
Well, that depends on a couple of different factors. Payouts are largely based on the number of guests scheduled for your engagement. So, the more people the larger the payout. Having the ability to execute dishes in a timely manner can make a huge difference in your earning potential. 100% of gratuity goes directly to the chef. If you have availability during peak hours (dinner time and weekends) you will put yourself in the best situation to maximize your earning potential.
Great question! The basic requirements include reliable transportation, insurance, an approved background check, and a food handler certificate.
You! For starters, we are not a food delivery service. Traditional delivery services are not focused on providing authentic and fine dining experiences like we are. We give our Chefs the platform to be the star of every engagement. Think of it like your very own restaurant and you are the Head/Executive Chef.

Payments will be made on a weekly basis through ACH direct deposit. Gratuity can be given to the chef in person or may be included in the weekly ACH direct deposit if the member elects to pay gratuity through the website. 100% of gratuity goes directly to the chef.
You can start by submitting the online form under “Become a Chef”. A member of our Talent Team will get in touch with you regarding the next steps.
Yikes! If you are experiencing any obstacles that will slow you down or stop you from showing up to an engagement, let us know ASAP. Call or text us at (469) 817-9688 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. First, we need to know that you are safe (our top priority). Second, we want to put our heads together to find a solution for you and the member quickly.
While you are in transit to the member’s location you can call or text with updates on your arrival. If no one is home, call or text us immediately at (469) 817-9688 or email us at email@example.com
If your host has requested a task outside of creating, preparing, serving menu items, and cleaning the workspace; kindly tell them you wish you could but due to your agreement with Select Chef you are unable to perform any task outside of your agreement with Select Chef.
Absolutely not. We treat others with love and respect and the same goes for our members to our chefs. If you experience anything outside your personal comfort zone, turn off the stove, calmly go to your car, lock the doors, and call us at (469) 817-9688 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately so we can help you deal with or exit the situation. The safety of our chefs is our top priority.
