Our private chef experience covers the Yorkshire area and before the event, we liaise with you to create a menu that works for all your guests and dietary requirements. We even recommend the wine to go with your Vietnamese feast!

As part of your private chef experience, we do everything from laying the table, to washing up – we will leave your kitchen sparkling clean.

The whole evening is sure to create a truly unique experience for you and your guests.

How our Private Chef experience works:

  • Following your enquiry, we’ll work together to create a menu that suits all your guests complete with wine recommendations sent in advance of the night
  • On the night, our small team arrive around two hours before your guests to start preparing for an 8 pm start. 
  • We’ll get to work in the kitchen and will lay the dinner table ready for service
  • When all the guests have arrived, a welcome drink is served, this is often Loc’s famous (and utterly delicious) Mango Margarita
  • You will then be called to the table where the meal will be served* 
  • The meal is followed by Jasmin tea and handmade chocolates from local supplier Fusion Chocolates
