Alan was amazing. His food was absolutely insane, every single course (and surprise course!!) was utterly delicious. He was extremely helpful in putting the menu together beforehand when people in our party of 14 couldn't eat something. He arrived with his assistant and I wasn't allowed to lift a finger, he literally just got on with everything without hesitation and when they left it was like they hadn't even been there, it was spotless! Will be booking him again and would recommend to everyone! 5*! Thank you!

Jack was absolutely fantastic from sending his menu, to leaving on the night. I booked Jack to cook for 8 of us for my sisters hen weekend and Jack travelled over an hour there and back to do this for us. He was brilliant from the minute he got there, putting on a ‘husband to be’ mask, taking photographs for us, chatting to us, not to mention his amazing food. We got even more than what was on the menu and we honestly felt like we were in a 5 star restaurant!! Jack told us exactly what he was serving with each dish and the presentation and flavours were out of this world. He even left us his salt as we forgot to bring some!! The kitchen was immaculate when he left!!!! I won’t hesitate to use Jack again and look forward to the next time : )

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.

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.
