Private chef services

Our private chef services refer to any event where a chef is present to prepare, cook and/or serve the food and can be an excellent enhancement to many different events.  Whether you are entertaining at home, are throwing a surprise birthday party, or having a summer BBQ for a Christening, we can provide all your catering needs, leaving you free to enjoy your event and spend time with guests.

The benefits of using a caterer for your event are that the pressures of planning, shopping, preparing, cooking and serving the food are taken on by us.  With our private chef services, you get all the benefits of using a caterer, plus our chef will remain at your event to serve the food, clear everything away afterwards, and even take care of any dishes.  If required, we can provide additional staff to help serve the food and drinks, and help clear up afterwards. Having the chef remain at the event means that the range of food that we can provide  is much more diverse.
