Switch up your culinary experience at home by hiring these talented private chefs in Malaysia.

Having a private chef come over to cook you a specially curated meal may seem unorthodox, but it’s actually a must-try dining experience that many can attest to. Datuk Seri Farah Khan is just one Malaysian personality who is partial to hiring a personal chef for private dinners, namely Chef Hossein Karimi.

When MCO 1.0 came into effect, hiring a private chef became more popular in Malaysia as we couldn’t head out to our favourite restaurants. Yet, there’s no reason why you can’t hire a private chef for a special dinner or gathering even though restaurants have now opened up for dine-in.

Imagine culinary creations whipped up in your very own kitchen, tailored to your own preferences with your dietary restrictions in mind. If it’s a romantic occasion, your loved one will surely be bowled over by the promise of being treated like a queen or king. Or maybe you’d like to host an intimate dinner party without worrying about the food and presentation? In that case, a private chef at your residence will impress your guests and leave them with a memorable dining experience.

If it’s the mess or someone else using your expensive cookware that you’re wary of, rest assured that most personal chefs come with their own equipment, cookery, and will clean up your kitchen once they’re done.

All you need to do is sit back and savour a delicious culinary meal with your loved ones (or by yourself, no judgement here) in the comfort of your own home. You’ll be able to experience the chef’s skills and expertise in the privacy and safety of your own home without needing to venture out in traffic. Now that’s fine dining!
