Lovely comments from some of my wonderful clients!

'Fiona,

I just wanted to say a sincere 'thank you' for making Saturday evening, and my birthday so very special.

The food was beyond compare and your culinary expertise wowed a well-travelled and discerning crowd. Rachael was perfect as your front-of-house.

I do hope we have the pleasure of meeting again.

Very best wishes, Paul'

'I have known Fiona over a few years now and she approaches every job with true professionalism.  She has worked as a freelance Chef in our kitchens at Meudon Hotel and is committed to adding her passion and flair to her cooking.

Whether Fiona is on centre stage at a food festival or in the centre of your busy kitchen you can be assured of her attention to detail and her great cookery skills to produce a range of high standard meals. ' - Gaye Woods Meudon Hotel

 

'We’ve dragged ourselves back to London after a week of no phone/internet and a good deal of walking mixed with daily bits of clearing up a three pronged location wedding…! Thanks so much for your endeavours with the food, it went down an absolute storm! I regretfully only ate (2 portions!) of the delicious starter and a mouthful of the main/salads as I was a wash with nerves pre-speech. But everyone was and still is celebrating the best wedding food ever. On that note I’d love the recipes so I could attempt to re-create - all the fish, the hake in particular, was exceptionally well cooked.' - J Ahearne

 

'Thank you Fiona for being part of my fiancée’s surprise birthday celebrations. The food was fantastic and left us with a very fond memory of Cornwall. It was supposed to be treat for the birthday girl but we all had a great meal and a great experience. I even shucked my first ever oyster! Would highly recommend Fiona to anyone looking for a private chef. Fiona was very flexible with venue, arrangements and designed a menu around fresh local ingredients. If you want to make an event extra special look no further.' J Law
