Trinity Event Staffing Jul 13, 2012 When it comes to hiring personal chefs, temporary chef staff or kitchen help in the Dallas and Fort Worth area, it’s important to know the differences between private chefs, catering chefs or plain domestic help. Whether hiring a full-time personal chef to work in your Highland Park, University Park, or Preston Hollow home, or hiring a catering chef and chef staff for your dinner party, company holiday party or other special event, it’s essential to know the strengths of each. A temp or part-time hired private chef can prepare reasonably-priced custom meals to reheat. Hiring full-time personal chefs that can double as estate managers or butler gives you a dedicated member to your busy household. If entertaining guests for private parties, dinner parties or cocktail parties is your focus, then hiring a catering chef from a temporary chef staffing company per party is more cost-effective. Ultimately, combining personal chefs, private chef, or catering chef as needed with cheaper kitchen help or domestic help allows you to employ diverse expert labor resources while keeping costs manageable. Some questions to ask include: What is your chef budget? What are your meal preparation needs including # of meals and # of people with different likes. Do you want a culinary expert or just basic kitchen help and is nutrition important? Can you combine personal chefs and domestic help chores into one position, or divide chef and household duties between part-time staff. Do you host dinner parties and cocktail parties often so that hiring a temporary chef from a chef staffing service as needed is a better fit? Ultimately, taking the time to consider the different types of chefs will help you when interviewing and will give you better results when you finally hire a chef for your personalized needs.
