Even if you're the kind of person who truly enjoys whipping up a fresh batch of your favorite pasta, much can be said about the leisure and luxury of having a chef come to your home to prepare an Italian feast. Similarly, if you expect the highest quality cookery from New York's best chefs but don't have the time or energy to fight traffic or wait for a table (even when reservations have been made), nothing can compare to the presence of a personal chef doing the shopping, preparation, serving and cleanup for some hearty Italian fare.

Whether looking to have a romantic meal for two or are planning to host a get-together with friends or family, hiring an in-home chef can make what may have been a regular night, one of the best evenings of the year.  With that in mind, we have collected a number of resources available for you to partake in some wonderful professionally-prepared, home-cooked Italian delights. With these sites at your disposal, the only hard part will be choosing which of the chefs to select:

New York Personal Chefs

From special occasions and weekly service, to group cooking classes and private meals, New York Personal Chef's selection of devoted food-smiths are ready to prepare practically anything your heart might desire. One of our favorite aspects of NYPC's chef directory is that you can follow a link directly to your chef's personal website, so you can easily book without going through a third-party.

Hire A Chef

Okay, we'll admit that at first glance this site seems like it may have come straight out of 2003, but that doesn't stop us from absolutely loving the way chefs are presented. After clicking around and learning what the icons around the site actually stand for, navigating the site and finding a perfect chef in New York becomes a breeze. Added benefit to learning their system: Hire A Chef's directory covers the entire United States, which allows you to get remarkable homemade food wherever you are.

Kitchit's attractive layout, chef features, pre-made menu options (we're drooling over Italian Street Food Dinner) and presented pricing, makes the site our absolute favorite to use and peruse. Searching the database also shows users high-resolution images of chef's dishes, making it difficult to not hire every single person on the site as everything looks smashing.
