What our Customers say


The chef was great. The food was plentiful, healthy and delicious, just like we’d requested. We had Canapes this time and look forward to trying another cuisine the next time we book


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


We ordered for a work party for our team of 20 people. The canapés were delicious. All the allergies and food preferences like gluten-free were taken care of. Truly the flavours took us away.

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.

Hire a Private Chef for Your Canapé Reception

Canapés, the bite-sized appetisers that are served at events, are perfect for socialising and mingling. However, they can be time-consuming and stressful to prepare, especially when you’re also trying to entertain your guests and have a good time at your reception. But not to worry! Yhangry has a selection of private chefs who know exactly how to keep your guests entertained.

Why You Should Hire a Private Chef on yhangry 

  • Expertise in canapé preparation: Canapés may be small, but they require a lot of expertise to prepare. On yhangry, browse through our selection of chefs for canapé-themed parties, and you’ll be sure to find a private chef that is an expert in creating the perfect canapé recipe.
  • Variety of options: Our network of private chefs offers you a wide range of canapé options. They can create different types of canapés, from traditional to modern, and offer a variety of flavours and textures as well. You can choose from vegetarian, seafood or meat-based options. This variety will ensure that there is something for everyone at your event.
  • Professional service: It’s one thing to be able to make delicious canapés. It’s another thing to present them in an attractive way. Our private chefs will ensure that your canapés are presented in a way that is visually stunning and appetising. They know how to set up a food station, decorate it with flowers and arrange the canapés in a way that catches the eye of everyone present. Trust us; your guests will be left impressed!
  • Time-saving: Preparing canapés can be time-consuming, especially if you do it yourself. By hiring a private party chef, you can save time and focus on other aspects of your event. You won’t have to worry about buying ingredients, preparing the canapés or cleaning up afterwards. The chef will take care of all of that for you, leaving you free to enjoy your party and socialise with your guests.

The key to hosting a great canapé reception is in the attention to detail. Our chefs on yhangry understand this requirement and are always ready to speak with you about your precise requirement. Book a consultation to get started!
