CHEF Private Chef Service

Private Dining Experience

CHEF offers the ultimate Michelin restaurant experience for you and your guests in the comfort of your own home or venue.

Choose from our carefully created, seasonal menu or opt for our tailor made bespoke service for a truly unique experience.

You and your guests can simply sit back, relax and enjoy your memorable event, and let Mick and his team take care of everything.

How it works

At CHEF our aim is to make your experience as smooth, enjoyable and memorable as possible, leaving the expectations of you and your guests well and truly exceeded!

So, here’s how it works in five simple steps:

Contact us to book your experience outlining the main details of your event including where, when, timings and how many people will be attending.

Choose the dishes from the menu provided to you via email, for you and your guests to enjoy. The menu options will be sent to you around four weeks prior to your event. Please provide your chosen menu including any details of dietary requirements where necessary at least one week prior to your event.

We will source all ingredients from local, trusted, sustainable suppliers, and prepare your chosen menu and arrive at your home or venue at a pre-arranged time.

We will set the table and your meal will be served to you and your guests. We can be as interactive or discreet as you choose. Your comfort is of utmost importance to us so we can talk to you and your guests, explain what we are doing and share useful hints, tips and tricks of the trade, or we can simply blend into the background. Ultimately, we want you to get what you want from the experience.

Once all your chosen courses have been served, we will clear your table, pack away and clean your kitchen, leaving it spotless. We will then leave you and your guests to finish enjoying your evening.

Included within the price of every booking is the sourcing of all ingredients, the use of our beautiful crockery and cutlery (unless you would prefer we use yours), the cooking and serving of your chosen menu and the cleaning of your kitchen before we finish, leaving your kitchen as though we were never there.

In addition to the above we can offer some further options. These include wine pairing with tasting notes from our wine expert, a wine expert to serve and discuss your paired wines, Champagne and canapes, cheese and biscuits, petit fours and even cocktails. Please enquire when booking about the price and availability of these optional extras.

How to pay

At the time of sending over your chosen menu, at least one week prior to your event, a 50% deposit will be required. This can be paid by BACS transfer (bank details will be provided.) This is a non-refundable deposit once inside the week prior to the event as we will start sourcing ingredients and booking staff where necessary during this time.

Upon completion of your event, payment for the remaining 50% will be required. This can be paid by cash or BACS transfer. Some of our past clients have preferred to settle the remaining balance prior to the event, for example, when we arrive on the day, just so this does not need to be done while you and your guests are enjoying the event, but this is entirely your choice.

Please see below for a pricing guide. This guide relates to parties located within Essex, London and the surrounding areas. We can provide our services Nationally and we can even consider overseas events, however some travel costs may be added.

– Parties of 6 (minimum party size) to 15 £100pp

At CHEF we offer a menu devised from carefully created dishes using amazing, local, seasonal ingredients from suppliers we know and trust.

A menu will be sent to you around four-weeks prior to your event for you to choose the dishes for you and your guests to enjoy. Our standard menu consists of a starter, a main course and a dessert. However, we can tailor your event to your liking if you choose our bespoke package. You can also opt to add one, some or even all of our optional extras. Simply let us know your requirements upon booking.

Please note, all dishes are subject to availability and could change at short notice. This is due to all our ingredients being sourced seasonally and therefore they can be affected by factors out of our control. Please do also make us aware of any allergies or dietary requirements in advance of your event, so we can do our best to accommodate.
