What is it?

An exclusive and intimate fine dining experience in the comfort of your own home (or for larger parties your own private popup restaurant in one of my venues) – in essence, your very own private chef for one night.

Why?

Restaurants are brilliant – but sometimes you might want to do something just a little different. A birthday treat, celebrate an anniversary, or just arrange your own exquisite and elegant dinner party for something new!

How do I book?

Each private dining experience is different and my aim is to create something beautiful and unique for you and your guests. Just send me a message using the form below and we can discuss your plans.

Gift Certificates?

These have become really popular as presents – if you want to give someone the experience of a private chef for an evening, simply let me know when you complete the enquiry form above and we can post out a snazzy gift certificate to you or directly to the lucky person. That way you can give them something on their special day and let them organise a date that’s convenient for them.

How does it work on the day?

I usually arrive about an hour before you want to start dinner to prepare everything. I then take over your kitchen and bring all my own equipment including plates to enable me to cook and serve you and your guests a fabulous dinner – and I even clean up before I leave! Alternatively I’ll create your own private popup restaurant – just arrive, sit down and enjoy the experience!

Where?

At your place! I’m based in Hertfordshire but travel well so location isn’t a problem – obvious preference for the Maldives but anywhere in the UK works just fine :). For larger parties I can now offer a couple of venue options if you don’t want to do it in your own home or have enough room – in essence this would be like your own private popup restaurant!

What sort of food?

Beautiful, delicious and different. This is meant to be fun and easy, so you can leave the menu to me to take you on a culinary journey between 5 – 8 courses. I like to create a bespoke fine dining experience catering to your own personal preferences which we can discuss.

How Much?

This really depends on the menu we create but once we’ve got an idea of the menu I’ll give you a fixed price for the evening.

    Wow – Theo cooked for a friend’s party and it was amazing. Fabulous food – deliciously different – and I’m amazed at how he managed to conjure up such an amazing feast in a home kitchen. I’ll be having Theo cook for my next party. Amazing

      Thanks Gemma, it was a total pleasure and I’m really pleased you enjoyed it! And thank you for leaving the review; it’s really nice to hear… And I’ll hold you to cooking at your next party! 🙂

  3. Hi Theo, just a note to say another BIG thank you for such a fantastic evening last weekend. The food really was sublime and was great to see you. I 100% recommend anyone to let ‘Theo Cook’ for them – all our guests were blown away by the food and along with that Michaels charm it was without a doubt the best dinner party we’ve ever put on! You’ll be back!

    Hi there Theo,

    You have come highly recommended by a friend. We would love to buy a gift (Christmas) for our parents to have you cook for them, they are big foodies. Could we buy a gift voucher so they could then discuss the details with you in the new year. It is for 2 people in Harpenden.

    I know I’ve left this late but be lovely to hear your thoughts.

    Many thanks
    Sarah
