Choosing our menu from such a tempting selection was difficult, but having chosen, the booking process was straightforward. The only problem was getting the card payment to go through. Our chef, Ade, phoned me a few days later to discuss the child’s menu and any food sensitivities. On the day, he was very professional and produced a wonderful meal for our celebration.
Ade was exceptional. He was friendly and talked us through each course. The food was punctual and the presentation was first rate. The servings were generous - certainly no one was left hungry!
Ade was excellent. Polite, friendly and willing to adapt the menu to suit our needs including a different childs meal.
Ade was a star from start to finish - he dealt so well with our questions and loitering in his kitchen space, produced beautiful food and actually silenced a hen do with what can only be described as the most amazing sticky toffee pudding ever created! I would not hesitate in recommending Ade to anyone looking for a fantastic, personable chef for their event!
Ade was amazing! From the minute he came in he was so friendly and knowledgeable! The food was amazing, and in the lead up he was so easy to talk to about the menu and different choices! Would recommend him over and over again!
It was a really great experience, better than expected. I already recommended it to my friends!
Polite and friendly chef. High end restaurant quality food. Discrete and tidy.
A perfect way to have a nice dinner when you can’t get out.
My guests and I really enjoyed our dinner with Chef Ade Samuel and were impressed by his professionalism and adaptability. We made a number of last minute changes to our booking and he handled these in his stride. He also wasn’t fazed by having to cook a meal for 9 with our Aga. We found him very friendly and courteous and he struck a good balance between being conversational and discreet. We’d be thrilled to have him cook for us again
An excellent evening on Valentine's Day. The food prepared by Ade was excellent and could be compared with a dining experience at a really nice restaurant
Your feedback form is annoying. I wrote out some details and it imposed a space limit. It then froze. I'm redoing this. Chef good personality. Timing good. Menu quite innovative. Beware using paprika as feature spice for so many courses.
We had a really lovely supper. Ade was charming, interactive without being intrusive, and cooked a delicious meal
Ade was great and really the food was exceptional he did start to tell us how he made one of the items but it sounded so complex we asked him to stop! Rally wonderful food and flavours
Great service. Ade was really great, a pleasure to have in our home and and the food was fantastic.
Was a wonderful evening. Ade was great, very friendly and efficient but at the same time professional. Food was wonderful.
The food was excellent. Ade is a great chef and charming man. Presentation first class.
My cooking style is simple, using the freshest herbs and spices that I can find. I like to make all my dishes from scratch where possible and I love cooking fresh fish and chicken, using different grains and the best ingredients to maximise flavour.
I love lemons, allspice and fresh herbs. Lemons are so versatile and can add so much flavour to even the simplest of dishes. Allspice is such a versatile spice too and I enjoy using it when I cook jerk chicken and other Afro Caribbean dishes. Fresh herbs, especially parsley and rosemary are just so versatile too. I grow several herbs in my garden including both parsley and rosemary and I add them as flavour agents to my bottle of water that I drink daily!
I am a private chef because I love the challenge that cooking for new people in new environments brings. Eating good food makes us all happy and I like to make people happy!
Hungarian goulash when I was about 12. I do not know why, as my parents we both from Nigeria! However, I did take a liking to this dish. I am glad to say I have broadened my culinary horizons since then.
I am always cooking! However, for downtime I love music and watching films and learning and developing new recipes.
Albert & Michel Roux Senior, I grew up watching these two great chefs and they stimulated my life long love affair with food.
