A day in the life of an EatAbout chef

Home cooks, weekend chefs, full-time chefs: Whatever stage you are at in your culinary journey, EatAbout has something for you.

Our service helps you to do what you love doing – cooking – and get paid for it. And the flexible structure of the system means that you can work as much as you want. A chef with a busy schedule might only want to host one night a week, whereas someone with more free time might host EatAbout dinners a little more regularly.

Set your own schedule

Once you have signed up to be an EatAbout chef, choose which days you are available to be a host, set a price per head, and you can leave the rest to us. We take bookings from groups of diners who want to enjoy a meal in your home, and pass the payment onto you. Then, your only job is to prepare an incredible meal that will leave a lasting impression on your guests.

Meet new people

For the many aspiring chefs out there, networking and getting to know the right people can be a challenge. EatAbout is designed in a way that showcases chef talent, and helps you to be discovered by the industry. Some of today’s most successful chefs started out hosting at pop-up restaurants, and have gone on to launch full-blown restaurants.

Get creative

Being a chef with EatAbout also helps you to get more creative than you would in other cooking environments. Got a new dish you’d like to test out? EatAbout provides the perfect opportunity. As the host of the evening, you can set your own menu, taking advantage of your particular skills and specialities.

As you can see, there is no shortage of reasons why you might want to be a chef with EatAbout. Do what you love, make money, and learn new skills – what more can you ask for?
