A fantastic BBQ for my husband’s birthday . Mike was constantly in touch checking on all the plans , food timings etc .
On the day he arrived in very good time and set up beautifully . The food was delicious especially the lamb which everybody was raving about .
We were able to have a second lunch the next day - I particularly loved the sea bass and Asian
Slaw salad .
We would be very happy to have Mike cook for us again . A lovely experience . Thank you

Wonderful dining experience, from the delicious canapés to the amazing three course meal. Mike talked us through each course and told us where the food was sourced, he was polite and funny and made the experience a memorable one. Will definitely book again.

I can’t rate Mike highly enough. Circumstances with COVID make things difficult but Mike ensures everything is compliant and that all guests feel comfortable. All guests not only felt comfortable but Mike wow’ed them with outstanding food and service. Incredible. You won’t regret booking!

Michael is a very talented chef who created the most wonderful culinary delights for our event.
He was easy to work with, very accommodating and worked collaboratively to make sure everyone was catered for. He was friendly , efficient and worked with us in advance to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was delicious and he made our event very special. I would highly recommend him.
