As a guest, it was great - everything just happened very smoothly, and the food was surprising and very good.
Gary Ashley treated me to an unforgetable experience of fine dining. Each course achieved a high professional standard. His quiet confidence and unobtrusive manner created an ambiance which was pleasant and unflustered. His food - prepared and presented single-handedly with meticulous attention to detail - was most enjoyable. My thanks and congratulations to Gary. He is a gifted chef who will obviously continue to be much in demand.

Gary Ashley is the consummate dinner party chef - urbane and charming, he produced outstandingly good food, beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. A memorable experience and one we will hope to repeat in the future.
One of my biggest passions is in Vegetarian cuisine. I have entered twice into Salon Culinaire and won two consecutive Gold Medals, including "Best Live Dish" beating over 200 Entrants for my live vegan dish. Also competing in the Vegetarian Society's annual Vegetarian Chef of The Future three years running, I was proud to take the winner's title in 2012 and again in 2013. I continue to work with the Vegetarian society and helped judge last years competition in 2014.
Winner of best live dish at Ascot Salon Culinaire (out of over 230 competitors) for my vegetarian butternut squash and coconut curry. I also achieved the title of Vegetarian Chef of the future 2012 and in 2013 and Judged this years competition in 2014.
Having a personal Chef cooking for you is an exceptional experience and when it comes to choosing someone to have in your home you should choose the best.
