How It Works
Search local chefs for any occasion, whether a dinner party, date night, or last- minute dinner plans.
Request a professional chef to cook for you. A chef will shop for groceries, come to your home, cook, serve, and clean up.
Securely pay from any device and enjoy the Eat In Chef experience.
Eat In Chefs create and publish menus inspired by cuisines from across the world. All you have to do is enter what you're in the mood to eat to explore all of your local chefs.
We show photos of dishes, chef profiles, and reviews to help you easily find a chef. Our search filter narrows your results by favorite foods, cuisines, dietary restrictions, location and price.
For example, if you're on a tight schedule and want healthier dinners every night after work, set your budget and select menus that match it. If you have company coming over and they eat gluten-free, use the gluten-free filter.
Requesting a chef to cook for you is easy. First just sign up and create a profile through our system, where you can set your primary location, budget, and favorite cuisines. Then you can start checking out our chefs via your matched chefs, or just use our easy filtering system to view all of our chefs!
Once you decide on a menu, we will ask you for party size, special instructions, and payment information to finalize your request. The chef immediately receives a notification with the details via text, in their profile inbox, and email and your all set!
Now that you know what you will be eating and who will be cooking it for you, all that’s left to do is hang out and eat in. In the time leading up to your chef's arrival, they will shop for fresh ingredients and head over to your kitchen to cook as scheduled.
While your chef prepares a delicious meal, we suggest that you reap the benefits of having a culinary professional in your kitchen. It's incredible! You can wind down, entertain your guests, ask your chef questions, or simply sit back and enjoy a new lifestyle. If any issues arise during your request, speak with your chef or please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After your chef serves you, they will clean up and depart. They'll even store leftovers and provide re-heating instructions. Once your request is complete, take a minute to write a review of your experience and chef to help future diners like yourself become part of our community.

The Riveras (Manhattan)
EIC provides us chefs with the opportunity and creative freedom to cook and create customized menus specifically for another person. That kind of focus and customization is something that many of us missed when working in restaurants. Cooking has become personal once again.
Chef Elena Apostolides
Having a real chef in my home was great! My friends and I loved talking with the chef and how our meal came to be.
