Private Chef In Leeds

Chef Molly Payne

Get to know me better

Down to earth chef, with an unrivalled passion for food.

Established during lockdown in 2020, Molly began foraging and creating food for key workers in the family. Over time the business developed into a firm favourite in Leeds, becoming well known for delicious 'finish-at-home' meals including Sunday roasts and fillet of beef wellington.

Molly is multi-award winning with 13 years of experience at age just 25. She is the youngest, and so far only, female recipient of the Oliver Award for 'Best Chef'. Molly gained the bulk of her experience in a well known French bistro, working up to Head Chef, before venturing to work across the North in two AA Rosette restaurants.

byMölly's private chef hire offers menus to suit everything from intimate date nights, to family gatherings and even large scale events.

Great - if only Take Chef didn't take such a massive cut, they would get more repeat business.
