Frequently Asked Questions

What services do you offer?

If you need food, let us know. We are happy to entertain any and all requests that may require food in any way, shape, or form. This could include, but is definitely not limited to: private luncheon and dinner parties, cooking classes, bridal/baby/wedding showers, retirement celebrations, meal preparation courses, prepared dinners to reheat, wine and alcohol tastings, and beyond!


Our favorite event to host would be the in-home dinner party featuring 3-5 courses. We’ll collaborate with you to design a creative, unique, and delicious menu. As we cook, we’ll engage the guests, share techniques, and have fun! Chef and his team will take care of all preparation, cooking, execution, and cleaning - in your own home. For our events, we can provide everything from dishes, napkins, glasses, and plate ware - or - simply bring “just the food.”

Where can you host your events?

All things (insurance, licensing, space, resources, feasibility) considered, we are happy to host events in your private homes, outdoors, offices, or venues. Similarly, Chef and Little Chef have a wide array of connections in the Chicagoland area to help you find a venue that fits your needs.


Which dishes, cuisines, or recipes can Chef prepare? 

Chef’s experience stems over just about every culinary technique and cuisine there is. While he has his specialties, as well his favorite items to make, we would love to entertain any requests. Similarly, we will be very honest if your requested dish is perhaps out of scope, but we do not foresee that being an issue.

If you’d like to alleviate the need to choose your dishes, bites, plates, meals, etc - Chef Pat & Co is happy to propose menu options, anywhere from one item to the entirety of your event’s menu. 


Where can I see a menu or price list?

Every event begins with Chef and Little Chef getting to know you, so we can create a one-of-a-kind event. Whether taste, nutrition, lifestyle, or dietary preferences, you and your guests are unique! Therefore, we do not believe “one menu fits all."  We can’t wait to work together on your special event, but in the meantime, we can gladly send previous quotes and menus for inspiration and a suggested price point.


What geographic area do you serve, and do you travel for events?

Chef is based in Glen Ellyn, IL and Little Chef is based downtown Chicago, IL. They are both available to meet in person usually within one to two days. They are also readily available via Zoom. As for travel, Chef Pat & Co is ready and available to travel outside the Chicagoland area, all things, such as travel expenses and resources, considered. We will never say no to at least exploring an idea! Whether it be a lake house in Michigan or a graduation party in Wisconsin, we’d love to chat about it. 

What is the best way to contact Chef and Little Chef?

The best way is to send us an email at We are also available through the contact form on our website, LinkedIn messenger, Instagram messenger, and Facebook messenger.

How much notice is needed to plan an event?

More time doesn't hurt, especially to confirm our availability, but you are welcome to contact us as close to, or as far out, from your event date as possible. We will do everything we can to make it work! 


Who is Chef’s favorite family member?

Boone. The dog.
