The best thing is that the experience is entirely based on you and your guests. Once we know your preferences, our chefs will share their menu ideas with you. Just pick the one you like the most. When the day of the service comes, your chosen chef will head to their favorite local market to buy the ingredients for your dishes. They will cook the entire meal in your kitchen and serve it to you and your guests. And don’t worry - before leaving, the chef will clean everything up so that you can just sit back and relax.

Chef Zurath was very prompt with communication and open to negotiating menu options. He was always ready to answer questions about the evening and how it would work. If you'd like a cosy and relaxing dinner at home, then I'd recommend Chef Zurath.

Frederico was lovely - he was very professional and accommodating to all of our changes. He replied straight away and was so helpful. On the day he was punctual, the food was fantastic - it was very delicious and he made cute printed menu cards and decorated the table well. Presentation was amazing and he was truly very friendly. The sous chef was also so lovely and waited on us so professionally. They also left the kitchen spotless before they left. Both a great pair to have had and we would highly recommend them to everyone. I will be sure to book Frederico again for his delicious food, great company and friendliness. Thank you so much!

Chef Nuno was fantastic! We had a truly wonderful experience, every single dish was delicious and chef was very professional. He left the kitchen cleaner than when he arrived! I would absolutely recommend Chef Nuno without any question and will plan to book him again next time I am in the area.
