How long will we be at your home?
It is more than likely that several different dishes will be cooked from scratch.
This will take several hours in most cases, but we will be happy to make arrangements in advance so that the cooking and arrival time fits around your schedule.
Do I have to be at home?
No. As long as we have necessary access to your home and a brief outline of how everything works, you can leave us to it, and a spectacular meal will await you on your return.
What should I do to prepare for your arrival?
Please have a clean kitchen and empty sink with substantial space in your fridge & freezer as well as a working space for the chefs. It is crucial that your oven, stove and fridge are in good working order!
Do you provide crockery, cutlery, glasses and linen?
We will need to use all of your own equipment.
What happens if I need to chancel or change the date of my event?
Our cancellation policy is:
Cancel at least 14 days in advance of the date booked: full refund.
Cancel, change date or change location less than 14 days in advance of the original date booked: I cannot offer a refund as other business opportunities may be compromised.
Can I change how many people come to my dinner party?
Please inform us of these changes as early as possible so that we have enough time to work out portion sizes from quantity of ingredients already purchased.
