Cookery Services

Cooking fresh and from-scratch, cooking using wholesome ingredients and cooking every day is both a way of life and a passion. Food is a way to connect with friends and family. We are here to help you do that.

Dinner Parties

Little quince tarts & persimmon tarts

We provide cookery services for special occasions and small private dinner parties where we come to your home to prepare and serve a special occasion dinner, be it a birthday, an anniversary or just a good time with friends. Our Refined Country Cookery emphasizes freshness, seasonality and flavor, using locally sourced (and often locally grown or raised) ingredients prepared carefully and with a little flair (and plenty of herbs from the garden). More info here.

Events Catering

Small wedding lunch in a vineyard

For small events (up to 100-120 guests), we offer personalized season-focused menus with many ingredients sourced locally cooked in your kitchen or in the event kitchen. We call it in-home catering, and while we need to take a look at the kitchen before proposing menus, it does not take a fancy kitchen – Just a carefully thought-out menu and time management. Besides we have a pull-behind grill so we can roast/grill/smoke meat, poultry or veggies. More info here.

Note that as of May 2020, we are not accepting bookings from new clients.

Every Day Cookery Services/ Personal Chef Services/

Meals to meet your dietary requirements (restrictions and preferences) and eating patterns. Because every client is different.

Our cookery services are often referred to as “personal chef services”. The typical personal chef service lets you select from a set of existing menus, for which the chef then shops, and comes to your house to prepare, cook and package meals ready-to-eat (or ready-to-heat). And clean afterwards. We do that – and more
