You work hard and have invested well in your home, your friends and family.  You’ve gotten to the point in life where the best evenings are made with friends at the back door, not long lines in a loud restaurant. Appreciate the luxury of a refined or casual experience surrounded by the things and people you love. 


A Borrowed Chef curates a culinary experience and brings a world class chef from fine properties in Boston to your home.  Our chefs have directed professional kitchens at Four Seasons, Stowe Mountain Lodge, Mandarin Oriental and other luxury hotels around the world. Showcase gourmet food in your home and enjoy the experience as much as your guests.


Kim Lambrechts has made food and the exploration of the world’s culinary destinations his life’s passion.  As a child in his native Belgium, Kim learned the value of a meal well served at his family table where Sunday suppers took hours to prepare and even longer to enjoy with friends and neighbors. The European tradition of savoring friendships over a leisurely meal has been at the heart of his professional life and continues to be a tradition he shares with his own family and friends.


Classically trained at Institute Technique Des Metiers De L’alimentation in Tournai, Belgium, Kim worked in a Michelin One Star restaurant in Brussels and at Manoir de St Aubert where he earned multiple awards including the Special Award of Excellence from Master Chefs of Belgium Pierre Fonteyne, multiple Master Chefs of Belgium Awards, (3)Silver Medals, (1) Gold Medal and a Special Prize at Salon Culinare International competition in Dubai.


From Brussels, Kim went on to work in Washington DC, Boston, Abu Dhabi, Mauritius and Cambridge, MA in progressively senior roles. In Boston he has been held executive positions at the Museum of Fine Arts, Hotel @ MIT (now Le Meridien), SPIRE Restaurant and The Bay Tower Room. His professional journey has taken him to boutique hotels in Newport, Rhode Island and Stowe, Vermont as well as a large resort in Colorado.  In 2006  he joined Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and opened the world class property in Kuda Hura, Republic of Maldives and has most recently worked as a chef and General Manager at the Bristol Restaurant and Bar at the 5 star Four Seasons Hotel Boston.


Kim began A Borrowed Chef to bring the sophistication of professional kitchens to discerning families that love to entertain. He knows that you want to make an impression, not a mess. He expects you to have fun pronouncing the French menu, not cooking it. He knows that you have plenty of style, but not a lot of time. Be known for great food, even if you didn’t make it.
