Ian barbequed an American menu for my husband's 30th birthday and he was amazing! The food was wonderful and super tasty, everyone loved it! My husband had 4 plates of food and enjoyed every bite! Ian is very friendly, profressional and was very easy to work with to create a special birthday. I would definatley recommend him! The BBQ went off perfectly, if your looking for an event with an amazing chef Ian is your guy! It was great to relax and enjoy the day whilst Ian took care of all the food!...

"BBQ for 50 people at home.

Ian turned up on time with his large bbq drum and was really friendly and professional. He got on with it and cooked the food really well, also helping with some of the prep and flavouring of the chicken! Everyone had a good time.

Recommend and would use again."
