Derren cooked for us at a hen party at the weekend. He was really helpful during the planning phase helping us work out a menu that suited us, and on the night he turned up promptly and did a fantastic job. He was really friendly, the food was brilliant and he also did all the clearing up which was amazing. All of the guests had a really great time and loved the meal. Would definitely be in touch with Derren again if I needed a caterer in the area! More...
It was a real pleasure having Derren cook for us. We were celebrating a ‘big’ birthday and wedding anniversary and the five course menu that Derren cooked for six of us was delightful.
We had rented a property for the weekend and had no idea how well equipped the kitchen was or otherwise. As the living area/kitchen was open plan, we had the ‘chef’s table’ and Derren seemed completely un phased in having an audience.
The seasonal menu he created was all sourced locally and made our celebration perfect. He was very professional and unobtrusive but chatty enough to be a part of the evening.
I would definitely have Derren cook for me again! More...
I hired Derren to help me plan a dinner party for 10 friends. He was so helpful and professional and his food was fabulous. We couldn’t prise Derren more highly, the food was exquisite, he interacted so well with all of us and even let us watch him prepare the meal. Fantastic experience and will definitely look to hire Derren again. Thank you so much for making our dining experience so special.
I hired Derren to prepare a family dinner party to celebrate my birthday. He provided menu suggestions for us to consider and then prepared a wonderful three course dinner for the six of us. He was very professional and cleared up the kitchen at the end of the evening. More...
