My name is Martin, I have over 20 years experience in the catering industry, working in some of the worlds most iconic landmarks, from Harrods to House of Commons, to function rooms in the Cumberland Hotel in Marble Arch.
I have a great team behind me who I have worked with for many years and some of which have their own expertease. These guys I trust to the ends of the earth and can rely on them to produce quality beyond belief. My team understand that its all about quality and I can vouch for everything produced, from a grain of rice to Foie Gras.

"wow - what a great experience. This was the first time I have experienced a chef cook within my own home and I have to say I would 100% book again. Martin’s food was fantastic and he offered an extensive menu to choose from.

From start to finish the whole experience was very easy and the evening was relaxing and enjoyable, exactly what this type of experience should be."

"What a fantastic experience this was!

Martin is simply fabulous. From the moment he quoted us for our Hen Party (party of 7), he was extremely flexible, from the menu options to the timelines in making final decisions (important when you're dealing with a group of Hen Party ladies!!)

The food was prepared within about an hour & 15 mins. We started with duck which was cooked beautifully followed by a choice of 2 mains, salmon or chicken. The chocolate dessert was out of this world and was still talk of the group the following morning.

Martin is a great guy with good sense of humour and we would love to book him again for a future event!

Please do not hesitate to get a quote from him. You will not be disappointed.

Brilliant service from initial contact, arrival then a fantastic 3 course meal with canapes. Martin and his team were extremely professional and the food was of a fantastic standard. We had multiple dietary requirements (gluten free, pescetarian etc) & Martin and his team provided a menu that was great for every one ( all 21 of us). Good fun and kitchen was left very clean. Would definitely recommend and use again - Thank-you :)
