Food is the tool that makes guests slow down, share a table, and stay at the table.
You’d make a great Transformation Table Chef If…
For you, cooking is an act of love
Transformation Table chefs are willing to adjust their menus to suit everyone around the table. We find most of our chefs through word of mouth, and the greatest qualification we look for is flexibility. It doesn’t matter to us whether you cook professionally or at home. What we look for is your willingness to share your talents and skills with people from various walks of life, belief systems, and experiences. This includes food preferences. Our guests are carnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and pescatarians!
You’re willing to share your unique food story
We consciously select home cooks and chefs who are willing to share their own history and culture through food, and become an integral part of the dining experience. Chefs who cook for Transformation Table are as diverse as the people at the table. Past meals have included the cuisines of Vietnam, Afghanistan, Morocco, Iran, and the American South.
You can adjust to cooking in a home kitchen
The kitchens our hosts provide vary in size and layout, and we ask our chefs to make the provided kitchen space work for the dinner they create.
You use locally sourced ingredients
Transformation Table believes in supporting local farmers, food artisans, and purveyors. We hope that you will use local sources whenever possible.
