Our Top FAQs

What equipment do I need to provide?

The chef does not come with the cooking equipment and serve ware. The chef will be using your pots and pans, plates and cutlery. 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.

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 birthday party dinner feel very special. Would highly recommend chef Fouad to everyone!

Incredible! I cannot thank Chef Bonito enough. The food was delicious & beautifully presented. Chef Bonito created platters for the adults and children of my Daughter’s 2nd birthday party. He went to my home to create the platters (from scratch) & then delivered them to the venue! He left my kitchen wonderfully clean! In fact, cleaner than it was before!!Thank you for that! Honestly, it was a seamless and an amazing experience!A very lovely chef indeed!Thank you Chef Bonito for everything!

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! I’d definitely recommend Gianni.
