Staffing a household kitchen

Anyone can hire a personal chef, but for a larger estate you might need to bring in a variety of kitchen staff. From dishwashers to servers, fully staffing your household's kitchen might require several domestic staff and even more than one private chef.

Some of the factors that can affect your kitchen's needs include the size of your household, the number of people eating, the feeding of other domestic staff and the complexity of meals. If you have a large family or throw frequent dinner parties, you may decide to hire a second chef, wait staff and other kitchen workers to handle various needs, such as the grocery shopping.

Here are a few examples of the additional staff that can help your estate's kitchen run smoothly:

Housekeepers Consider bringing in housekeepers who clean the kitchen, shop for food or wash dishes. These staff members can simplify your kitchen operations and make work easier for your chef and estate manager.

Second chef – Hiring a chef to specialize in appetizers and desserts, or a second chef to split the work week up, can help ensure your kitchen runs successfully and avoid problems should one cook fall ill or want to take a vacation.

Servers – Having wait staff on hand can help any dinner party run smoothly, or add a level of comfort and ease to your daily meals.

If you're looking to hire a private chef or fill out your kitchen staff with servers, dishwashers and other members of the household, contact Colonial Domestic Agency. We can help you ensure your domestic staffing needs are met in the kitchen or any other aspect of your life.
