Frequently asked questions

What services do you provide?


We are bespoke to your needs but predominantly clients use us for dinner parties, meal preparation for the week, BBQs, small events and other regular private chef services.




How does it work?


It’s easy, just tell us your location, the time and date you would like a chef to come to your home, the number of people and the quality of ingredients (eg. organic or not). You can have a menu in mind or we can send you some menu suggestions based on your preferences.




How many people can a chef cook for?


For a dinner party we believe that approximately 10 people is the most that one chef can cook to a high standard for using a domestic kitchen. Therefore a second chef or server may be needed for larger groups. However this is very much dependent on numerous factors. If you have more than 10 people then please get in touch here and we can see how we can help.

For BBQ or buffet style events we can cater for over 50 people
