I read a few reviews when looking to book a private chef for my wife's 40th Birthday, and have to say that Andy and Caroline already came highly recommended by previous customers. I can honestly say that it is not hard to understand why. From the very first phone call Andy was extremely personable and enthusiastic about putting on the perfect meal for my event. He took into account all of the likes and dislikes of my party to pull together a mouthwatering initial menu from which I could narrow down the selection for the dinner. Caroline provided expert wine guidance which really helped pull together the evening.
When they arrived at the venue Caroline decorated the table beautifully whilst Andy set up camp in a kitchen which was not familiar to him with no fuss.
The food was outstanding, obviously I take all the credit for the choices I made, but in all seriousness the canapes were amazing and set the tone perfectly, the starters that followed were absolutely divine and the homemade foccacia was a joy to behold.
The main course continued the culinary excellence and the desserts perfectly rounded off the meal. Or so I thought....then they brought through coffee and petit-fours.
The food was not only delicious but also very generous in its portions, and this is coming from a family of over-indulgent eaters!
I can't recommend Andy and Caroline high enough and hope I get the opportunity to use them again soon!
