Hiring An Exceptional Chef

With countless trained chefs to choose from in the world, finding a match can be difficult. Someone who can prepare meals for the children, a romantic dinner for two or even head up efforts to create meals for a dinner party or event is not an easy task. The challenge becomes even greater when the competition to hire heats up.
Although it may be difficult, there are a few essential attributes beyond their exceptional ability in the kitchen to be aware of which will increase the chances of finding a chef of your liking.
How organized are they?
Exceptional chefs are well-organized in the kitchen so that when they need to prepare a meal at the last minute, they can do so without hassle. Whether it is going to your local market or home garden, the essentials for just about any meal is ready upon call.
How do they feel about criticism?
An exceptional chef can not only accept constructive criticism, but they are humble and flexible enough to adjust their cooking style to suit your personal needs and preferences.
How do they cope under stress?
A well-trained chef has worked in high stress situations in some of the best restaurants in the world, but cooking for a family carries with it, its own challenges including the need to prepare meals at the last minute or for finnecky children. An exceptional chef is always ready to stay calm and professional no matter what the size of the crowd or corporate function.
Are they curious and adventurous?
The culinary scene is a fast moving one, do they keep up with all the changing trends? Are they keen to experiment with unusual combinations of flavors and textures or do they stay in their ‘comfort zone’ choosing only to stay within their repertoire of recipes? An exceptional chef has a range of skills, keen eye for detail and creativity to stimulate your palette.
How do they source food and are they nutritionally conscious?
An exceptional chef is always on the lookout for quality organically grown local produce and their dishes will reflect the passing seasons as they will cook nutritional meals with predominantly fresh produce. They will be keen to establish a herb garden and may even be enthusiastic foragers – these are all good indications for culinary delights.

Glenn Greenhouse
Glenn began in the “family business” more than 30 years ago, by coming to work for his Father, Martin Greenhouse. He often recounts how nervous he was, when at 19 years old his Father forced him to pick up the phone and speak with David Suskind. This was to be the first of dozens of phone calls and meetings to come for Glenn……with Celebrity Clientele. Glenn considers himself very fortunate to have spent his life working at a job he truly loves and as he puts it: “earn a comfortable living at the same time.”
