The Experience

Your chef will take care of your party all-throughout the experience; and yes! That means host dutties are off the table for you.

French service, family-style or buffet, your choice! We want you to feel pampered.

The Wrap-up

By the end of the night, all there will be left for you to do is relax and enjoy your company.

We mean: clean silverware and shinny counters for the perfect farewell.

Because the best memories are always made around the table.

And 300,000 guests already made theirs!

Chef Lulo was absolutely impeccable. A man of his word, he promised to deliver excellence and he did just that. Great communication throughout! He also had wonderful energy which made the celebrations more special. Thank you chef! Would definitely recommend.

Vic came to cook for 8 of us at our AirBnB in Llandudno one evening on holiday. His menu was fantastic and he showed a huge amount of care for the sustainable sourcing of his ingredients, making sure they were all local and in season. He was incredibly professional and superbly managed the 2 hours of load shedding we had from 6-8pm. The kitchen was left absolutely spotless. Would 100% recommend Vic and his delicious food. We will be booking him next time we are in CT.
