How it works...Please choose one starter, main course and dessert for your group.

What to expect
Once you've chosen your perfect menu and a date has been agreed your work here is done!
You can sit back and relax in the knowledge that your own personal chef has got everything covered. We do all of the preparations prior to arrival at your home or accommodation. Your chef will arrive around 1-2 hours before your event to get set up and finish any a la minute cooking.
We will serve and clear and leave your kitchen just as immaculate as we found it!
