Have Top-Quality Food At Elite Personal Chefs

By Keith Donaldson

With a goal of providing high-quality food and high-quality service, Elite Personal Chefs in Elgin has been succeeding in both regards since 2011. Owner and chef Austin Yancey took some time to answer our questions about Elite Personal Chefs.

What ​was the inspiration behind opening Elite Personal Chefs? How long have you been in business?

Elite Personal Chefs was created in 2011 with the vision of sharing our passion for elevated food and culinary innovation with the world. Our team brings elements of fine-dining into the catering scene with seasonal ingredients, customized menus, and unparalleled service. EPC approaches every event with elegance, passion, and precision developed from years of experience in Michelin-starred restaurants, international culinary competitions, and leading educational institutions.

How would you describe the type of food that you usually offer on your menus?

Elite Personal Chefs brings the art of fine dining into your home or business. We collaborate with clients by building each menu on a per event basis utilizing fresh, seasonal ingredients and refined service. Our culinary team is trained in all global cuisine disciplines making our culinary and menu options limitless. Ingredient seasonality and integrity, proper technique, and elegant plating make up our core values when it comes to cooking.

What i​s one of your personal favorite menu items you offer and why?

My personal favorite part of what we do each day is not a specific menu item; it is the experience of meeting and interacting with our valued client base. As an educator, I look forward to the private cooking class and interactive dinner events where I spend personal time discussing with our clients; food science, theory, and practice. I love "getting into the kitchen" with our guests and watching the excitement and personal development unfold. So much fun.

Why do you think someone should choose Elite Personal Chefs for their personal chef and catering needs?

Elite Personal Chefs is an unrivaled private events company servicing the greater Chicagoland area. Our ability to customize events, experience of our culinary team, and high level of service is unique in the catering world. We feel fortunate to have such phenomenal clients and look forward to the future as we grow our customer base in Chicago and beyond.
