THE ULTIMATE CULINARY EXPERIENCE | PERSONAL CHEF SERVICE
You want the ultimate culinary experience? Punk Chef will create restaurant quality food in the comfort of your home or venue. From intimate dinners for two to catering for large corporate events, no event is too large or small. Punk Chef will have everything covered including delicious food, waitstaff and cutlery/crockery. You won't have to lift a finger!
Typically, the same starter, main and dessert is served to the entire party. If there is any vegetarians or vegans we can serve a separate starter and main for them. WE are very flexible with our menu so if you would like to see more options or add some favourites in, please don't hesitate to ask.
We arrive at the property approximately 1.5 hrs prior to serving the canapes or first course. This gives us enough time to setup for the evening and finish off the food preparations. Usually we use the crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils within the property but can provide these by prior arrangement.
For groups of 16 or more people, waiting staff will be provided* to serve and clear up. Smaller groups will be served by the chef, who will also do all of the clearing up.
By prior arrangement we can decorate and setup the dining table. Pricing starts from £35 and includes laying of the table (using crockery and cutlery available at the property), fresh flowers, napkins, candles and fairy lights or light box. Otherwise, we ask that the table is laid out by the party themselves.
To confirm a booking we take a £100 deposit. Once menu choices and final number of guests have been confirmed an invoice is issued, payable up to 24 hrs prior to the event.
YOU CHOOSE THE DATE & TIME
To get started, simply submit a booking request with your desired event date, time, location and guest count. From there, I will send a formal quote your way and collect a 50% deposit.
WE BUILD A MENU TOGETHER
I’ll collect important information like food preferences and dietary restrictions, and then we’ll work together to build your perfect custom menu. My sample menus are a great starting point and showcase my specialties.
YOU ENJOY THE DINNER. I DO THE WORK.
I’ll arrive with all the ingredients, spices and cooking equipment and handle prep, cooking, serving and cleanup. I’ll bring menus for your guests and can interact with them as much or as little as you like, and I promise to leave the kitchen as it was when I arrived.
