Really wonderful experience.
Chef Akudo was very professional and friendly. Creating a spectacular 3 course lunch for proposal in marriage to my partner on 29th Feb, 24 - Leap Year. Akudo is so passionate in his work, explaining each dish as he went along. Will definitely book again. Thank you for making our celebrations truly special. More...

Chef Aldo Agokei cooked the most incredible 3 course meal for myself and 5 of my best friends. He is exceptionally professional and his food was truly amazing. He took time and care to understand what everyone’s tastes were and delivered a tailored menu to suit our preferences. I would highly recommend Chef Aldo and will definitely use him again. Thank you More...

What a great experience, Akudo was so knowledgeable and passionate about all of his dishes he prepared for us, and it showed, as they tasted amazing! I loved how he even made sure there was enough for my dog to enjoy as well as she sat waiting patiently watching him cook. What a fantastic experience. Thanks you Akudo More...

From the outset with a prompt reply and no issues with intolerances like fodmaps I felt confident Chef Akudo wasn’t just saying it but actually understood and soon proposed menu choices which were quickly tweaked and then agreed upon. On the evening which was my wife’s birthday Chef Akudo arrived promptly and proceeded to unpack his items ready for service. Was a pleasure to see somebody really focused and wow tge food! The best we’ve ever had. Full of flavour with no intolerance issues of course. Rebooked sane night for another date in June. More...

I have never experienced a private chef and decided to try it due to the fact I recently had surgery on my ankle and could not move so much. Chef Akudo was amazing, he arrived in plenty of time, super organised and friendly. As for the food… I have never tasted such an amazing food! He explained each dish and mocktail, and we learnt so much too! Everything was done in perfect time, and he left the kitchen spotless! He also left an extra dessert for my sister which was so kind!

I would definitely recommend Chef Akudo, it’s just a shame there weren’t any leftovers! 😁

Amazing from start to finish- Akudo was able to give suggestions on possible Menus and what works well together. His communication all the way through was spot on. Not only was he really engaging but also made us feel at ease with having someone in charge of our kitchen !
The food was exceptional, and served with an explanation and a flourish.
Akudu delivered a fabulous experience - and we would absolutely recommend anyone book him.

Chef Akudo provided an exceptional private dining service for a 70th birthday celebration. The food was outstanding- full of flavour, filling and a nice homage to traditional Nigerian flavours. I had been concerned that portion sizes would be an issue but this was completely unjustified as all in attendance were more than satisfied. His passion and dedication to his craft really shone when he talked us through the inspiration behind his dishes. Not only was it an fabulous dining experience but also a nice insight into history of Nigerian cuisine.

He was professional from my initial enquiries right through to completion of his services and was exceptionally tidy.

I will definitely be using Chef Akudo again and highly recommend him if you are looking for an private chef that delivers on flavour, is passionate in their craft, give a great personalised service and is a delight to work with.

Chef Akudo, we can't thank you enough for your amazing culinary skills. The food was out of this world and exceeding all expectations. Your a true gentleman, from start to finish the experience was 1st class. We were well informed from menu selection, to having each dish explained to us as it was served.
We look forward to calling upon you in the near future to cook up some more amazing dishes for us.

Chef Akudo was booked for our event at home. Booking was straight forward and communication was superb on the run up to our event.

Akudo arrived in good time and easily adapted to use our kitchen.

We had a 6 course taster menu which was presented and served perfectly. All 10 of us were blown away with the flavours, textures and presentation of every dish we were served with. During the meal, the entire conversation was about how good the food was.

Every course, and Akudo's professionalism was beyond our expectations

So we’re do we start… what a lovely friendly guy, we asked Akudo if he could cook for us as we had rented a house in Buxton for my partners 60th B/D and her family. His communication was excellent he arrived on time and prepared all the food here. He was clean and tidy. We had agreed a menu with him weeks before. The detail and presentation was superb, he did canapés, starter, main a sweet and a cheese board it was fantastic and great value… we can highly recommend him and will most certainly be asking him to cook for us again.

I had a brilliant experience, I contacted Chef Akudo on short notice and luckily he was available. He gave me a call and talked me through the service and sent over a copy of the menu. The menu was already pretty great and only required 1 minor amendment. Upon arrival, Chef Akudo was extremely professional and set up very quickly so we could begin the evening. The food was delicious and the service was even better.

I would highly recommend Chef Akudo to anyone looking for a special private dining experience.

We had the idea to hire a private chef for our friends 50th birthday. From the moment we chose Chef Akudo he made everything so easy, we chose the menu, then had a few changes but Chef Akudo was more than happy to make the menu right for us. He arrived with all the crockery and cutlery and set to work! The meal was amazing and we couldn’t get over how quiet he was while he was cooking, we were in a large kitchen diner and we never heard him cooking! The whole experience was very pleasant especially the Caribbean cocktail! He really does leave the kitchen as he found it, it was absolutely spotless when he left. Thank you Chef Akudo for making our friends birthday so special! More...

From the initial phone call from Akudo we knew he was the right guy for the job, he asked so many questions regarding what we liked and what we were thinking and then sent over choices that were beyond what we expected.
He arrived with everything he needed and got straight on with the job, he informed us of every detail of the food he was serving and every mouthful was fantastic. Great to sit down with him after dinner as well and find out all about him.
Would recommended him in a heart beat you will not be sorry.
We will be rebooking very soon.
