Dan cooked for my family and a house full of friends for two weeks straight, and was an utter joy from beginning to end. Not only was his food perfect and irresistible, but he came up with such brilliant ideas that I swiftly ceded all control of the menu to him, and was blown away by his ability to read what would work, as well as to surprise us. Above all, he was endlessly kind, sunny and good humoured, even (especially) when the oven broke. What a joy to have around – anyone would be lucky to spend time with him like this. I cannot recommend Dan enough.

I booked Dan for a private cooking lesson in the comfort of my own home and I can honestly say I have never looked back since.  Before the lesson we discussed what I wanted to learn and planned the menu. The day itself covered food preparation, cooking the food and presentation. Dan’s attention to detail, professionalism and his enthusiasm made it such an enjoyable experience and was truly an inspiration.  I have also hired Dan in his capacity as a private chef for a dinner party for 15 of my friends and again the thought and preparation that he put in to the menu and it’s delivery was second to none and made for a truly wonderful experience for all.  Thank you Dan and Evie.
