Welcome to Chef at Home by James Howe.
We help you Impress without the stress
Hi my name is James Howe, I started as a commis chef in 2006 and have loved it ever since! I trained in a lovely 4 star hotel in Scarborough, North York’s & on to Michelin starred restaurant in the Yorkshire dales. I got my first head chef role when I turned 22 and put my stamp on the culinary map. In 2017 I moved in with my wife & started this business. Ever since I have gone from strength to strength. From a small catchment in Norfolk to National coverage and a growing team. Largely owed to my ‘philosophy’ – “British flavours, French Techniques, Yorkshire Portions”
I help you impress without the stress. Whether it’s a birthday party, hen night, anniversary, staff Christmas party or wedding. My team and I are here to make sure you have a fantastic meal that you can enjoy with your guests. I even do the washing up!
I travel all over mainland UK & occasional trips to Europe (I may ask for a bit of extra cash for the plane!). It doesn’t matter if its your home, a holiday let, manor house or the top of a tower block. If I have an address, I can get to you
- Our dedicated team of ambassadors are here to help you make your event the perfect evening your you
You can book me for events any day of the week. Saturdays are for obvious reasons the most booked up, so if you are looking at a Saturday get in touch quick!
On the day I arrive 2-3 hours before service with all the food needed, my trusty bag of knives and anything extra you may have asked for. All the important stuff.
You’d book me because I have 300+ clients that would recommend me without hesitation. Including the celeb wing - including Dele Ali, Tom Jones, Idris Elba, Lorraine Kelly, Natalie Dormer and Claudia Schiffer and the entire teams from Oxford Women boat race, RAM endurance race & Yorkshire Cricket Team.

I can highly recommend James Howe. The food was delicious, presented beautifully. James and his sous chef were extremely professional and my kitchen was left lovely and clean. I would definitely have them again at any future events as would all my guests that thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Thankyou James & Tonto!

Our intimate wedding breakfast was served by James and his colleague. The food was delicious and presented beautifully.
They could have potentially need an extra pair of hands to make the serving a little quicker table to table but it didn’t spoil it for us! Thank you!

James was an outstanding chef and happy to talk to us and even left us some of the amazing chipotle sauce which was amazing. Would highly recommend him it was a lovely dinner for my husbands 40th birthday.

As this was a 60th birthday celebration we were really excited about the event. With James being caught in traffic made him over 2 hours late. The food was hot and tasty, although the starter disappointed a few of the guest. I would still book again as overall the event was enjoyable.

I would recommend James to anyone. Came a long way to us arrived on time. Provided a first class meal and cleaned up afterwards. Him and Rebecca his assistant were excellent.
Don't hesitate to book him.
