Private Chef Dinner Parties

Bringing together close family and friends to share in life’s most memorable celebrations with great food and drink that leaves a lasting impression.

SETTING THE SCENE : Sitting back you exhale deeply reaching a hand out for your favourite glass of wine. Slowly you purse your lips to the glass for your first sip of the evening. You are dressed in your favourite outfit, the table is laid and the smells coming from the kitchen are beginning to make your mouth water. You shut your eyes to take in a moment of silence then suddenly there is a ring, you feel a rush excitement as you hurry to open the door to the smiling faces of family and friends. Unlike other parties you have hosted in the past, not being shackled to the oven gives a sense of freedom for lively conversation. There is no rushing around just great company, wine, and when you sit down your chef presents to you such a tasty feast that your guests are still be talking about long after they leave .

“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relatives”
Oscar Wilde

Your Private Chef Experience is a perfect way to enjoy great food with flair, without the price tag of a fine dining formal meal. Your private chef experience has been designed with relaxed dining in mind, Your chef for the night will bring out some “gifts from the kitchen” to help get the conversation started.
