Hired chef james for our 10th year wedding anniversary dinner, with a new born baby and the current situation it’s very hard to plan anything! We’ve used supperbyjames on previous occasions.

Went for the 6 course tapas menu, the whole meal was prepared and cooked by james himself which was great as his normally fully booked for months ahead, incredible food (again blown away) in the comfort of our own home with impeccable service.

Thanks for another great evening james and helping me plan our anniversary last minute when all seemed lost, could not recommended you more

All the best

James, his delicious food and his awesome talents come highly recommended from me.

We have a great time over a 3 course meal prepared by James in our home for my boyfriends birthday. A fabulous experience particularly as the birthday boy was able to assist in some of the preparation and serving.

The family had a great time and my 10 year old was even challenged to a Mario sort race or 2 as well.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening and I would definitely do it again.

Thank you for making it so great James. I look forward to another evening of your culinary delights soon.

James is a lovely friendly person. He has a relaxed approach and puts everyone at ease. He loves sharing his knowledge of food and cooking. The dishes he prepared were excellent and carefully and beautifully presented. He cleaned the whole kitchen when he had finished. I especially recommend his seafood sharing platter which we had as a starter. Very highly recommended x More...

Hi James, thanks for your email. I really don’t know where to start. Amazing, everything couldn’t have been more perfect. The wonders that came out of my kitchen no-one could quite believe!!!

To start the table just looked stunning. You were right to go for the white and crystal, and the table decorations were so ‘me’, with the candles, it really had the wow factor. I almost felt like I was getting married again!!!

Can i now apologize to you for my drunken state!!! Who knows what I was talking about!!!

And of course the food! Again, amazing! Everyone and i mean everyone said they couldn’t believe how good the beef was. To serve 22 people all at the same time, out of my tiny cooker, it was hot, it was cooked to perfection. Clean plates all round! The same for all the other courses just wow.

I couldn’t recommend you more James. A great team, and lovely people. Fabulous concept which we will definitely use again (once I have a new kitchen lol!!).

Thank you james

True professional to he’s trade, james catered for me and my wives anniversary dinner with friends and family.
Couldn’t of asked for a more professional and polite gentleman nothing was to much trouble from booking to the finished product.
Now James’s food is something to admire, absolutely stunning! we choose the 3 course sit down with an additional amouse bouche and loved everything better then any restaurant we’ve been to.

Thanks for making our anniversary’s very special evening,
look forward to booking you again soon

We hired james for a family BBQ as a treat for the family as we haven’t seen everyone due to covid.

From initial contact to finish james was brilliant and very helpful though out the process, the food was second to none and I really mean that! Me and my family are real foodies and all stops where pulled out on the day ( I’m still waiting for your pulled pork recipe BTW lol)

Just want to say thank you for making the day special and serving us such amazing food, great memories.

I could not recommend you enough

See you soon

We hired James to cook for us while we celebrated a special birthday. We had great menu options to select in advance and the food on the night was absolutely delicious - even better than we were expecting. He is a total professional, completely organised and none of us had to lift a finger - everything was sorted out for us. He is always friendly, but just gets on with the job without any fuss. We all highly recommend this service from start to finish. Thanks James! More...

We have had meals delivered by James for the past few weeks. The food is incredible and at a very high standard. Everything is cooked to perfection and the effort and time that James spends cooking his food is reflected in the taste and presentation. Could not recommend James enough and it will not be a choice you regret. We can't wait for our next meal from chef James. More...

We just had the most incredible evening thanks to James’s wonderful cooking and his fantastic waiter who couldn't do enough for us.
It was a faultless evening. James’s menu was sublime. If you're thinking of doing something like this look no further, I would never have thought to have a private chef at my house but this was such an amazing evening. I will be asking James back as a regular fixture, and all our friends and family felt the same. A truly magic five star experience. Thank you 😊

As the mother of the bride my main concern was making the day special,

James catered for us at the amazing venue of Arley hall as he was a preferred caterer for them,

What gave them the 5 star review was without doubt James and he’s team, from the start he completely dedicated himself in creating a fantastic menu for us all and implementing the brides dietary requirements with ease, the food for me was the highlight of the day ( sorry for all the changes 😳)
Absolutely show stopping from start to finish.

I will remember my daughters wedding for the rest of my life like it was yesterday “ I have to pinch myself at how wonderful it was and how well we were looked after”

Thank you James and your team so much for giving us memories to treasure for ever xxx
