There’s nothing that says summer is here than a BBQ. When the sun is out and the weather is set fair for the weekend, it’s the kind of social event that we all like to gravitate to. Many people do it themselves, of course, dusting off the old barbecue set and running down to the supermarket to buy a whole range of steaks, burgers, buns and booze.
If you want to create a special occasion when you arrange your next BBQ you may like to consider hiring the services of a professional chef. Here’s why:
Sit Back and Relax
If you want to enjoy the festivities and not spend the afternoon rushing about after people or trying to find that burger sauce you bought at the supermarket, a private chef takes all that hassle away. You can simply relax, enjoy the ambience and let your private chef get on with the important business of cooking up a memorable feast.
One of the biggest bug bares of organising a barbecue is that you have to spend time rushing around the supermarket looking for your food. If you’ve picked a particularly sunny weekend, chances are you’re going to be battling with other customers who are looking for exactly the same thing as you. Letting your chef handle all this makes perfect sense. It will also ensure that you have enough food for the guests that you’ve invited.
Theme Your BBQ
Hiring a chef means you can decide to have a theme to your BBQ. Perhaps you want a Hawaiian feel or you’re going to specialise in vegetarian or fish dishes. A private chef should be able to cope with a wide range of themes and suggest the right food for your BBQ, something that give your guests an extra special, tasty treat. Most chefs will work with you to find out what kind of dishes you want to serve on the day and they’ll certainly be able to make his or her own interesting suggestions along the way.
Ensure Quality Food
Of course, one of the main reasons for hiring a professional chef is that you get the quality of food you are want. Most of us are good at cooking in the home but catering from 20-30 people at once can definitely be a challenge. You won’t have cold food lying about and those juicy steaks and scrumptious sausages will be perfectly cooked. And you don’t have to worry about poisoning your guests because something is underdone – you have a professional chef on board!
A treat for you & your guests
Hiring a private chef will give your guests a treat – there’s always a little kudos to be had because you have put this kind of effort in. With great food and plenty of drink to whet the appetite of your guests, the chances are you’ll have a memorable barbecue that people will be talking about for some time to come.
