Notes For Consideration
When reserving the culinary service for an alloted period of time, whether in a verbal or stated contract, particularly in the capacity of a personal chef, the client is expected to compensate the chef whether they choose to use the chef for the full alotted period or not as the reservation prevents the chef from performing duties elsewhere.
If performing in the capacacity of an event, half of the agreed funding is required to commence preparation; the remaining will be due either on the day of or 2-3 business days afterwards, depending on what is specified.
International clients can discuss payment options as they tend to not have affiliations with local banks.
Savory Art reserves the right to refuse service, at our discretion if it believes that a clients' conduct violates applicable law, conflicts with our values or is harmful to our interests or those of our affiliates.
