Our experience with Chef Alan was fantastic from start to finish. You might think it would be weird having someone cook for you in your house, but Alan's friendly and personable demeanor made the experience really enjoyable. Alan produced for us a 7 course taster menu, in which every mouthful was absolutely delicious and I could not find any fault with it. Alan came prepared with his own crockery and cutlery which really added to the experience and definitely added a feeling of being in a restaurant. There was not a thing I would have changed. I would definitely recommend Alan (and have already done so) to anyone thinking about having a private chef.' On the scale of 1 to 5 it would be a firm 5. Thanks again Alan, we really did have a fantastic time.

Darius cooked for me and my husband to celebrate his 30th birthday. What an evening we had! Darius was so friendly and relaxed he is clearly an expert in what he does. Not only did he prepare us amazing food, he shared his expertise with us and had great conversation. The food was exquisite better than any restaurant I have been to. I can’t thank Darius enough for such a wonderful evening, we will definitely be booking again!

Chef Artan was absolutely incredible. He arrived promptly, (in appropriate PPE) cooked beautiful food, explained our dishes thoroughly and left the kitchen extremely clean on departure! The beef fillet that he cooked for my partner was delicious, I would highly recommend! The whole experience was flawless, and I would definitely use Artan again for any future meals. 10/10!

Emily Burns - Dec 8, 2020

5/ 5

I have never previously had a private chef experience but hopefully it won't be the last time. Rob had put in a huge amount of prep. The food was amazing. He also struck the right balance between leaving us to enjoy our dinner party, and being engaging and chatting with us when we wanted to ask him questions (which you will want to do when the food is THIS good).

Adam Hewitt - Oct 7, 2019

Chef Philppe was excellent and the food was amazing Highly recommend him.

Chris Bourne - Aug 3, 2020

5/ 5

From the moment Alex walked into the door the experience begun. A smile on his face ended up with a smile on all our faces with the high quality and attention to detail of all the food through the evening. Every dish had our taste buds going to a place like never before. Alex as a person is friendly and professional and as the night went on we all enjoyed getting to know him more. The cocktails were nicely done and even the one member who does not normally drink them were asking for more. I will certainly be recommending him to friends and family. Its an experience not to be missed. I cannot recommend Alex highly enough.

Patrick Teague - May 5, 2018

5/ 5

3 words to explain the service provided by Alan from start to finish...Amazing, Amazing, Amazing. After reading Alan's menu and his past reviews i decided to personally message Alan to discuss the menu before confirming. He invested time in answering any questions and concerns which only confirmed to me he was the right person to help be part of my wifes 40th lockdown celebration. Once confirmed, we spoke a few times to discuss the menu and even advised me about best wines with the courses On the day, everything went better than i could have anticipated. He was friendly and very professional, his food looked and tasted amazing;  without doubt to michelin standard and made our evening special. Would i recommend Alan to everyone?...an easy 100% yes! He made it confortable and very easy for us, to the point i'll be using Alan again in the future. Very lucky to have across his profile and without hesitation would recommend him!!

Does the Private Chef cook at my house?

A Private Chef always prepares the menu at the client's home, as it is an inherent part of the experience. However, depending on the complexity of the menu, the chef may prepare a mise en place before going to the client's home, as some dishes take several hours to prepare and it would be impossible to execute all the steps at the client's home.

Can I cook along with the Private Chef?

Absolutely! Usually, there are always several food lovers among the diners who take the opportunity to share some time with the chef, learn some tricks in the kitchen and the step-by-step of each of the dishes on the menu. For those diners who really want to get hands on, they can of course join the chef and cook!

Are the ingredients for a Private Chef service fresh?

Every Private Chef gives the utmost importance to the freshness of the ingredients used in their menus. The main difference between a restaurant and a private chef is in the personalized treatment of each diner. The chef personalizes the menu, and based on that menu, makes the necessary purchases to develop the menu chosen by the customers. Therefore, the freshness of the ingredients is one of the key elements of a Private Chef service.

Are drinks included in a Private Chef service?

Drinks are not included by default. However, you can reach an agreement with the chef in order to add drinks as an "extra" to the menu proposal.
