Currently based in New York City, Meredith Hayden makes day-in-the-life videos as a private chef in the Hamptons. Hayden’s videos usually start from the beginning of the process at the grocery store to the stovetop, all the way up until the dish is served to her clients and when the kitchen is clean. With shifts sometimes as long as 17 hours, multiple dishes cooking at the same time, and a debut cookbook on the horizon, Hayden is a committed creator. The delectable menus she draws up for her clients leave audiences wishing for their own private chefs or at least half her talent.
