Get to know me better
I make restaurant-worthy dishes feel like home.
Safiyah Mariyah is a private chef, based in London, United Kingdom. Cooking since the age of eight, she has been experimenting with different foods, cooking techniques and her ultimate favourite, baking. Safiyah has refined her skills over the years, through her own personal development and training at Le Cordon Bleu London.
Plant-based foods have influenced her practice immensely, due to her personal relationship with food. It is her core belief that health and wellbeing start with what you eat. With this, Safiyah aims to keep plants at the centre of her cooking. This is why her weekend delivery orders are 100% plant-based, and loved by many Londoners. The aim is to bring the nostalgic feel of Caribbean takeaways, but plant-based. All other meals are reserved for private services. Using her culinary skills, knowledge and artistic flair, Safiyah creates dishes that look restaurant-worthy, but taste and feel like home.
For me, cooking is...
About story-telling. This is the passion. I love to use ingredients and techniques that have been influenced by my family in Jamaica and Mauritius.
I learned to cook at...
All my family's homes. Watching and learning in my youth has influenced my cooking immensely and then, I refined my skills at Le Cordon Bleu London.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Nigella Lawson. She showcases the perfect balance between rustic cooking with years of experience.
A cooking secret...
Music. This allows me to enjoy and connect with the process. And if there's love and passion from the chef, you'll taste in from the very first bite.
As a Private Chef, I can offer you:
Simply tell me what you're craving! I would love to create the perfect menu for your special occasion in London.
I can do weddings, birthdays and corporate events in London. You name it!
A longer stay in London? I'm available for holidays, on a daily basis, and so forth. Just let me know!
Because "sharing is caring". I would be happy to teach you all sorts of techniques and recipes in London.
