  • Can you cater for allergies?
    Yes I am trained to cook in almost all health requirements. I have a lot of direct experience cooking for many intolerances, allergies, diseases and illnesses. Perhaps it is just one individual in your party or everyone, either way I will create specific meals with the health needs in mind. Please contact me directly and I will ensure that the needs are met
  • How do you bring the food to us?
    As per regulations on keeping food safe, I have food grade safe sealed cooler bags. All food is cooled as per regulations, packed safely and transported under cool conditions in a clean vehicle
  • Can you prepare food at home?
    Yes I have been signed off by Bristol Council with a 5 star hygiene rating on my professional kitchen & premises. I prepare most food from here and only cook what I need to in your home or event space
  • What time do you need to arrive to provide a dinner party at our home?
    This will depend on the number of guests and the menu that we agree on. Usually I ill prepare as much as possible and bring this with me to continue the cooking at your home. Usually for a dinner party for 10 people at 7.30pm, I would arrive at 3pm
  • Who takes care of the menu planning and food shopping?
    I do all of this for you. We will have a consultation call FOC where I will ask you what sort of food and style you are looking for. I will then create a tailored menu for you to sign off on. Before your event I will take care of all of the food shopping and food preparations. I will kindly ask that you take care of drinks and table decorations, cutlery and crockery and table setting
  • How do you budget and quote, what will my event cost me?
    As every cooking project is individual, I charge a flat day rate for my time to menu plan, shop, prepare and be there cooking at the event. I charge 45p/ mile for the shopping and getting to you and back home if I need to drive or I charge you the air or train fare and any taxis I need to get. The cost of food is charged back with receipts and will be based on your brief, whether you want organic, locally sourced, supermarket bought etc. I have a number of suppliers I use across the UK. If I do not know your area I will ask you for the best butchers, fishmongers, vegetable suppliers in your area
  • Do you issue terms of business?
    Yes I do, this will include a 20% deposit of the total day rate and a cancellation policy based on a sliding scale
  • What is the difference between a Private Chef and a Health Coach?
    As a private chef I will cook a menu of your choice and usually for a celebration. As a Health Coach, I will work with you on a one to one basis to identify preventative health concerns and how to change your lifestyle and dietary choices for optimum health now and in the future
  • Where are you based and how far do you travel?
    This is dependent on the event. If you are based outside of the UK I will travel to you and you will provide me with accommodation for the duration of the project. If you are UK based, I will travel to you from Bristol. If this is a 1 day (or shorter) event, I will travel up to 2 hours each way. If you need me for a longer period of time (such as a 2 week holiday) I can travel anywhere in the UK and you will provide suitable over night accommodation for me
  • How many do you cater for and do I need to hire in additional help?
    This depends on the event. If it is a canapé party that I can mostly prepare before hand, I could cater for up to 100. If it is a sit down smart, 3 course dinner party, I could comfortably cater for 10 and do this alone. For a buffet style event I have been known to cater for up to 50 people, on my own (with a little help from guests to bring platters to the table)! It just depends on the event. I will always advise you during our initial call.
