chefs

Dine, drink, snack and entertain as you would in the best restaurant or hotel. The Help Company places a range of full, part-time or on-call chefs and family style cooks, depending on the needs of your family, lifestyle or diet. All of our chefs have had culinary training or have worked in recognized establishments.

salary range: $200/day – $500/day plus cost of food

we place all types of chefs:

family style cooks


A family style cook will use solid preparation skills to prepare healthy meals for the whole family. While family style cooks may not have formal training, they are able to follow recipes and prepare well-balanced, wholesome meals, and creative healthy snacks for the children. They barbeque, grill, steam, bake and will bring delicious recipes to bring to the table – pun intended!
