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.

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.

Amazing chef, can’t wait to have Alberto again. The dishes he created, absolutely amazing. We had the pan asian menu and we were both so impressed. The tiramisu was so delightful, definitely recommend Alberto. Alberto was friendly yet very professional.

Our experience with Marina could not have gone better. Marina’s food is amazing, and her hospitality is even better. Marina was lovely to chat to as she prepared everything, and you could tell she was a seasoned pro. Highly recommend.
