Our Top FAQs

What equipment do I need to provide?

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. You will receive the menus and place cards via post. On the day of your event, the chef will arrive with the ingredients to cook a delicious meal for you while you relax with your friends.

What our Customers say

A completely seamless and satisfying experience from choosing the menu to enjoying leftovers the next day!  Fouad’s menus have great variety and a good value and it was easy for me to swap a dessert for a starter.  He arrived exactly when he said he would and it was a pleasure to have him in my home – polite, engaging, and the food was exceptional.  He cooked an Italian feast for us and we both found it delicious. 100% would do it again.

I had booked an Italian dinner at home where I would be proposing. The Chef offered to help me out by writing the question in chocolate when putting out the dessert. The food was amazing, the experience was super memorable and the chef was super nice and accommodating throughout. The kitchen was left spotless

Chef was great. All went well – food was great. My boyfriend booked a Yhangry for our engagement and this was a gift to friends who got married this year. Both events met our expectation. We enjoyed our first meal and chose similar food this time for the wedding present too.

Hire Caterers for an Engagement Dinner

An engagement party is a coming together of two people, their families and their close friends, to celebrate upcoming nuptials. They allow people to bond over food and drink and create cherished memories. It’s a great way to share your good news.

It can be anything from a fancy sit-down meal in a beautiful venue to a DJ party. Regardless of what sort of event you’re considering hosting, you should hire a caterer who can provide your event with a splendour of perfectly-made food.

What Food Do You Serve at an Engagement Party?

Three main sorts of meals are often served at an engagement dinner. The first is buffet food, which allows guests to enjoy a wide range of food and mingle happily. Buffets can be anything from finger foods, sandwiches or hot meals. 

The second group is canapés. Canapés are beautifully presented snacks that are easy to eat but surprisingly tricky to make. These also allow guests to mingle without sitting down to eat them. These elegant snacks are a hit at almost every party.

The third group is fine dining meals. These refined dishes give you a chance to celebrate your engagement in style. They include starters, main courses and desserts. As you generally sit down to eat these meals, you can get to know your future in-laws more intimately. 

It’s important to offer a balanced menu that doesn’t reuse the same ingredient too frequently to ensure the menu is diverse. Make sure to tell a caterer about all your guests’ dietary restrictions.
