Private Dining

Would you like a stress-free dinner party with family or friends, a fine-dining evening under a garden marquee, or a girls night in with some Absolutely Fabulous food ?
Staying at home offers freedom to enjoy a totally bespoke menu with a cuisine or theme of your choosing, no-one to chuck you out late, no wine overheads, and your Spotify playlist on loop. My dedication to providing memorable meals of restaurant quality in the comfort of your home is reflected in many happy testimonials I’ve received over the years.

Dishes are prepared using quality ingredients, sourced locally where possible. Each plate created with attention to detail, then delivered & finished off in your home kitchen or venue while you’re relaxing in the company of your guests with a glass of wine. Et voila! the meal is served to your table. Each menu is bespoke, designed with you, your tastes and likes as well as dislikes. If you have an event theme, make the most of our creative resources, where we can tailor everything to your needs along with table dressing, props as well as the menu.

Prices start at £25pp for 8 people. A quote will depend on guests numbers, menu, courses and dishes chosen. See a selection of menus here for inspiration & guidance, then contact me for your initial 1-1 meeting to create the menu that’s perfect for you.
