Private Chef Hire

Why go to a restaurant, when the chef can come to you?  Do you have a special occasion coming up that you want to make truly exceptional? Ever thought of hiring your own personal chef?  If the answer is yes, then consider us for your personal chef hire. 

Personal Chef hire for a special occasion

Whether you are after an intimate dinner party or a party for family and friends, we will come into your home, or at your chosen venue and deliver you an unforgettable dining experience, including the bubbly to go with your meal. Whatever the occasion, be it a girl’s night in, birthday party, anniversary celebration or Christmas dinner, we pay attention to every little detail to make sure your event runs smoothly and you and your guests have a wonderful time.

We take care of everything.  From sourcing the ingredients to making sure that your kitchen is spotless before we leave.  We won’t leave until you are completely satisfied with everything that we do.  And unlike some of our competitors who offer a cheaper service, we offer a full dining experience.  We can also offer canapes on arrival

Add to that the full complement of waiting staff

Of course, because we are party caterers, we are not just about the talented chef.   When needed, we also provide a full complement of waiting staff.  Ideal for a more formal gathering, or if you want canapes and drinks on arrival.

Be inspired by our food & menus

Our menus are there for inspiration… we can accommodate any requests and preferences.  And of course, we will take any dietary requirements or allergies into consideration.  Just let us know of any limitations and we will do the rest.

What do you get for your money?

Whatever package you choose, you will get the same service.  It goes without saying that you get all the food included in your package and the chef to prepare, cook and serve it.  We can also supply the drinks for the meal, at an additional (small) cost.   Also for larger parties, we supply the waiting staff as well.

Is there a “minimum spend”?

Absolutely not!!!  Unlike some of our competitors, we will come to you even if all you want is a dinner for two.  You will get exactly the same service if we cook for two or twenty people.

So what are you waiting for?  Contact us to discuss how we can turn your event into something amazing.
