Briefly tell us about The Beast & Spoon.
The Beast & Spoon is a luxury chef service founded in 2014 by Marluy Andrade, and then business partner Daniel Radovcich. We provide clients with a personal chef that cooks a customized, gourmet meal in your kitchen. Our focus is on the integrity of local ingredients.
How does your pricing work? Can you give me a quick quote?
A 4-6 course dInner is between $2000-$3000, or about $250-$350 per person. We also add labor (1 sous chef and 1 server) and tax. Keiki (kids) under 14 years old are complimentary as long as they enjoy the adult cuisine. Our minimum order is $2000. We accept all major credit cards, checks, and cash. There is a 3% charge for credit card transactions.
I decided against traveling to Maui, can you refund me my deposit?
Unfortunately, your 20% deposit is non-refundable. Once a deposit is collected, we hold that date as yours and do not double book with other clients. For this reason, we keep your deposit as non-refundable.
What about prices on major holidays?
It is our policy to increase prices during major holidays to compensate for happy staff and increase of ingredient prices on Maui. Therefore prices double on all major holidays and high season of Dec 20 - Jan 3, and our minimum order jumps to $4000. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit for all major holiday dates.
Can you accommodate special diets like vegan, celiac (gluten-free) or dairy-free food allergies?
Yes, we work individually with each client to create a menu that is specific to their taste and dietary needs. We encourage off-menu requests that are not part of our standard menu.
How do I make a reservation?
Contact us at (917) 488-8408 or email@example.com with your preferred date and share with us your vision for the meal. Once a non-refundable 20% hold is collected, your reservation is 100% guaranteed.
How far in advance do you recommend booking private chef services?
3-4 weeks in advance is just fine. For all major holidays and the months of November & December, we recommend booking about 6 months in advance to ensure availability.
Do you serve alcohol?
Yes, we gladly serve wine and beer, but we cannot purchase liquor on your behalf. Maui County liquor laws require that you (the client) purchase the alcohol on your own. The Beast & Spoon does not have a liquor license. If you are looking to pair wines with your meal, we recommend working with our sommelier Ed at Wailea Wines.
What parts of the island do you serve?
We serve all of Maui with additional surcharges for travel to Hana.
Do you have waiters?
Yes, every dinner party comes with a Chef. For parties over 4, we add the labor of one server.
What other services could I consider as part of a unique eating experience?
For your convenience we are pleased to offer our clients:
-Luau, fire, Tahitian dancers
-Sommelier wine pairing
Can we watch the chef in action to learn a thing or two?
The kitchen is the heart of the home. We encourage anyone, including keiki (kids) to join our chef in the kitchen.
Does The Beast & Spoon volunteer their services to nonprofit organizations and community programs?
Yes, we strive to be pono - we love supporting community events on Maui!
