What our Customers say


Chef Fouad is an amazing chef! The food he cooked was 5 star and absolutely delicious. My guests and I were very impressed with the food and the service we received. Not only was his food delicious, but Chef Fouad himself was also a lovely person, very considerate, polite, hard working, and a joy to have in our house. He left the kitchen spotless clean afterwards. It was wonderful experience that made my casual dinner party feel very special. Would highly recommend chef Fouad to everyone!


Delicious and filling experience! Chef Mark was fantastic. He cooked up a feast with our party saying it was the best dinner they’ve ever had. We had a concoction of British, Mexican and American dishes that were out of this world. We highly recommend Chef Mark and look forward to booking him again soon.


Chef Gianni did a great job for my 30th birthday dinner. He went above and beyond to accomodate us with the menu. My friends can’t stop talking about the chocolate mousse! And the kitchen was left spotless. I’d definitely recommend Gianni.

Our Top FAQs

What equipment do I need to provide?

If you’ve chosen the “Cook & Serve” option, our chefs usually use the equipment (pots, pans, oven, stone etc), and serve ware (glasses, plates, serving platters, etc) in the customers homes. If you are low on equipment or need the chef to provide this, please add this into your request (this will cost extra). Once booked in, you can directly message or call your chef to confirm on the exact equipment required. In case of BBQ equipment, we suggest hiring from AllensHire as the best option as they deliver within 48 hours and offer both charcoal and gas BBQs.

What is the minimum spend?

The minimum spend is £196.

What happens once I book?

Once you have placed your order, you will receive a booking confirmation e-mail containing further details pertaining to your event and you can also chat with the chef via your account. You can always edit guest number or dishes post booking.

Hire Caterers for a Casual Dinner

Hosting a dinner party, no matter how casual, can be stressful. There is so much planning involved that it may become overwhelming. Bypass the need to worry by hiring a caterer from yhangry to provide your event with delicious, made-to-order food. 

A caterer works with you to create a bespoke menu that will delight your guests – even any children attending! The best caterers will also consider all the participants’ culinary restrictions. They can cater for any number of guests, although the more guests you have, the more work they’ll have to put in and the more food they’ll need to create.

What Do You Serve for a Casual Get Together?

The food you’ll serve at a casual dinner get-together depends on the sort of party you’re hosting, what guests you have and where you’re hosting it. Some people might enjoy a multi-course dinner party, while others prefer an easy-going party filled with appetisers.

If you’re hosting it in your home, you’ll probably want to serve easy-to-eat popular foods everyone can enjoy, like meatballs, sausage rolls or pizza. It’s important to have a balanced menu that doesn’t repeat the same ingredients and caters to everyone’s tastes. 

Try to include healthy vegetarian options, starchy foods, protein-heavy foods and snack foods to ensure all your guests have something to enjoy. Include dips and desserts to make your party a real success!

How Many Appetisers Do You Need for a Get-Together?

The exact amount of appetisers you need depends on the number of guests you have. Generally, you’ll want around five options for small parties, nine for medium-sized and thirteen for large parties of up to 50 guests.
