Making a booking of a personal chef will bring the restaurant to you
Julian will prepare and cook for you in your own home or holiday let. Therefore, unlike in a restaurant where the chef/s cater for a large number of different groups of people, a personal chef is catering specifically for you, the customer who booked them, and your guests.

What a triumph the food was on Saturday.

Lots and lots of compliments on the food and we were really impressed.
We will definitely be recommending you should anyone ask in future.
Julian cooked for 17 of us for our wedding meal and it was a fantastic experience.
Everyone commented afterwards how amazing they thought all the food was and the whole team were very efficient
and put up with three toddlers charging around as well!
Would definitely recommend Julian and his team!
Fantastic and friendly service - couldn’t have asked for more!
Julian provided some jaw-dropping food for a group of 10 friends at our holiday rental,
we were all still talking about the apple tart days later!
Very happy to chat through the food with us and also work around our needs and requirements,
both in advance of the evening and during the evening.
Would recommend wholeheartedly.
I rarely leave reviews but felt Julian absolutely deserved a stunning review.
We booked Julian for our second trip to Cumbria but this time for 3 nights. He exceeded our expectations. Every dish he made was excellent - delicious, beautifully presented and of top quality. He tailored the menu for my very fussy family.
He did a Covid test and wore a mask at all times. He and his staff were professional, friendly and accommodating
and created a very comfortable environment.
Will definitely book Julian again (for holidays and for private dining at home) and would highly recommend.
Cannot praise enough.
Oh wow…what an amazing experience!
We booked Julian for my Mum’s 70th birthday celebrations in The Lakes and we were not disappointed.
From start to finish it was more than we could have hoped for - we were so well looked after by Julian & Annabelle and the food was another level. Beautifully prepared local
produce that tasted sublime.
If you’re looking for the ultimate foodie experience then look no further!!
Thank you Julian, Saturday night made our weekend
Wow. Just wow. Every single dish was so delicious! Julian and Annabelle were both professional and very friendly.
Thank you so much for coming to cook for us all - it made our mum’s birthday that extra bit special. Would 100% recommend.
We booked Julian, with the help of Helen, to cook a celebration dinner at our holiday let for my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. From start to finish, the communication and services offered were impeccable. Everyone commented how professional the service was and the meal was simply delicious. Thanks again.
Julian & his team catered a meal for my Parents 60th wedding anniversary at a farmhouse we'd rented for the weekend. We contacted Julian a few times before the event and all questions were answered promptly. He arrived at the time agreed and quickly got to work creating a fabulous meal. Very friendly team and the service was impeccable. Highly recommended
Julian cooked a fantastic meal for our family during our holiday. Absolutely delicious food and great, friendly service made for a very special evening. I would highly recommend treating yourself to a meal cooked by Julian! Thank you
We booked Julian for my parents belated golden wedding anniversary family get together as a surprise. Could not fault the experience at all. Julian was absolutely excellent and nothing was too much trouble, despite travelling out of his area to get to us. His food was delicious and he was friendly and professional. My parents loved it and it was the highlight of the weekend. Would highly recommend.
