If you’re like me, you’ll love hosting dinner parties. There is nothing nicer than inviting a few close friends over for a meal in the comfort of your own home. Chatting away with a bottle (or more) of wine without the worry of being chucked out by the restaurant at closing time.
However. The stress of planning, shopping, cooking and clearing up after the meal is often what puts me off.
Well I don’t need to fret any longer, help is at hand!
La Belle Assiette is a fantastic service for parents – you can eat restaurant quality food (or better!) at home, all cooked for you by a private chef.
La Belle Assiette’s aim is to make entertaining at home hassle free by bringing the restaurant experience to your home. They work with over 200 professional chefs across the UK, each of which have an online profile where you can view their menus, read about the chef, ogle over photos of their food and read reviews from previous customers.
On the website, you can select the date, time and location for your dinner and then browse menus of available chefs. There are also handy filters to help you find a style you’re looking for. Then book online, adding in any special requests for the chef such as allergies or dietary requirements. The chef will be in touch shortly after the booking to discuss the final arrangements.
A couple of hours before your dinner, the chef will arrive with all the ingredients they will need and get cooking in your kitchen. If you want to pick up some tips and tricks, they’re always happy to share their secrets! Then sit back, relax and enjoy the company of your guests at home while the chef serves you a delectable feast. At the end of the evening, you don’t even need to worry about the washing up, the chef will do that too!
La Belle Assiette offers this service from just £39/guest. If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for on their website, give their concierge team a call on 01355 377 022 and they will help you book the perfect chef for you.
If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for your loved ones, why not gift the private chef experience – from romantic meals for two, to a cooking class for the whole family, a chef will create a truly memorable experience.
