Sloan! Magazine: La Belle Assiette

This lovely review is of a dinner hosted recently by Sloan! Magazine featuring La Belle Assiette chef Jacqueline Wise, “a creative and experienced Cordon Bleu Chef trained at Tante Marie…This goes to show you the high calibre of chefs that La Belle Assiette is affiliated with.” The blog post mentions the new La Belle Assiette ‘split the bill’ feature which aims to make our service more accessible, allowing customers to pay for just their share of the meal.

Explaining how relaxing the host found the evening, she wrote “when you meet someone who is so in charge but in a non-overt manner, you feel that your dinner party is truly in great hands which means you can pop open the bubbly early…I can honestly say that La Belle Assiette and Jacqueline Wise took all the effort away from the host, allowing one to enjoy a quality meal at home.”

Another article to focus on our new “split the bill” feature which states that “the restaurant industry is set to be ‘Uberised’” by our innovative approach. After research indicated that 79% of English restaurant-goers split the bill, we created this feature so that customers can now pay only part of the bill when booking a chef. 

The article includes a quote from Stephen Leguillon, CEO and co­founder of La Belle Assiette: “Splitting the bill has been an important step to facilitate access to our service that has always been associated with more traditional food services. The release of this new feature was welcomed enthusiastically by the thousands of gourmands who use our service already every month”.
