My experience ranges from working in Michelin starred restaurants, 5 star hotels all over Europe as well as owning and running a bistro in Sweden and a café just outside London and my passion for cooking has taken a new direction with streetfood where I can create and cook in new places everyday and meet new customers. Passion, respect and hard work is what drives me. New and old technics, low and slow getting the best out of the ingredients and letting the quality of produce I buy speak for itself. Hoagies is a streetfood trader with a relaxed vibe. In Philadelphia a large sub roll is known as a hoagie this is where we took our name from because we are serving hoagies with delicious fillings as well as flatbreads, salads and the traditional all American hotdog.

What event planners say about our suppliers


Thirst Choice did an amazing job for my Dad's 70th birthday. We were staying in a holiday apartment in Salcombe overlooking the Estury and getting a personal chef in seemed like a special way to celebrate. Sally and Dave exceeded expectations by a mile. The food was delicious, but what really made the evening was their friendly yet professional approach as well as the knowledge and commentary they provided around the food throughout the evening. They left the place spotless too! We can't recommend them enough.


Fantastic! Amazing pizzas excellent service. Brilliant ovens def should buy one. Highly recommended Thank you Joe x


Well, I spent a good couple of months planning for this event. It was a surprise to my wife to celebrate 10 years of marriage. Once I had gotten confirmation French Chef At Home would undertake the event all went smooth as, as I chose the menu and liaised with Yves and Anne to make the day special. The first my wife knew about it, was when Yves turned up at the given time in his car sporting the French Chef logo. We quickly introduced ourselves to each other and Yves made good use of the facilities our kitchen had to offer. There was no fuss, it was almost as if Yves knew the kitchen like the back of his hand. I and my wife and our guests for the day drank cocktails while Yves prepared and cooked the food. We originally ordered a 4 course meal but it became apparent that Yves had in mind to bestow upon us a 5 course offerings. He was warm and polite, very professional, and my wife and guests were mesmerized as he served each dish from starters to deserts. There were bite size starters of quail eggs and fish, served on mini popadoms and breads. This was followed at leisure by scallops with asparagus with a fantastic sauce. For the main meal we chose Lamb shanks, and I could not begin to allay to you just how fantastic this main meal was, with offerings of a unique and very tasty gravy with veg and i think a polena wedge. I could not help but think this was probably the best meal I had ever had in my 50 years of living. A desert followed, then the final course of a cheese dish. All the while Yves was very professional. We sat there astounded as each dish came to our pallet. I had to make a mental note to slow down and savor each dish. We took photographs and Yves allowed us to take photos of his very aesthetically prepared cooked food. I could not have made the day any better. Still now, my wife and I are sat here humbled by the event. There was no rush, nothing was forced or insincere, it was without doubt, what every couple could want from a professional chef for a special event. Once the meal was over, Yves cleared up the kitchen and left us to continue the day with cocktails. But when he had gone, we could not stop admiring his culinary skills. What a fantastic day, and a great chef who was warm, sincere, and very skilled in his art. Both my wife and I would greatly promote French Chef at Home. To top it all, for a party of four, the fee was extremely reasonable. We spent the rest of the day till the early hours, enjoying the occasion before falling over late on. Great Day Yves....Thank You, and you too Anne for liaising. Well done.
