Previous Guests Feedback

Jamie was great. Really friendly and happy to talk about the dishes and the ingredients, but also maintains a very professional attitude. He was very attentive and really wonderful to have around

Emma DanceEmma DanceGuest

Having pre-warned Jamie about the small scale of my kitchen, he arrived all prepped and ready to go an hour before our guests were due to arrive.
Super friendly and effortlessly whizzed round in the kitchen as if it were his own.
The food was great. A lot of dishes contained elements we'd never had, and it was interesting hearing Jamie talk about their nutritional properties and his whole ethos on food. It sparked a lot of conversation.
The whole evening was lovely. It felt like we were collaboratively hosting - which takes the pressure off - and not having to do all the washing up made it a breeze.

Jamie was exceptional. He was very calm and let us take our time with starting. The food was delicious, he was charming and made it feel like he was hosting us in his home/restaurant. An absolute pleasure!

The care and attention that went into planning and creating our 6-course meal tonight was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Jamie's vegan choices were inspired and creative. They would have turned any avid meat eater’s head.
Jamie showed up and quietly got to work. No fuss. No demands. No ceremony. He was perfectly on time. Each course was served and described in perfect detail. The flavor combinations are explained. The presentation is immaculate. And the taste...I can’t really even describe it. If I wasn’t being more polite than usual I’d have drunk the mushroom gravy directly from the gravy boat.
And THEN. He did the washing up. He left the kitchen exactly as he found it. And quietly left to allow us to continue our hen party evening.
I absolutely love finding people with a quiet passion for what they do. Those who don’t need or expect praise or approval. They just clearly love what they do, so much, and carry it out with excellence. That was our Jamie. And he made our night

Jamie cooked for our family at a Golden Wedding celebration. His food was fantastic and he engaged so well with our family, including the children, making the meal a really relaxed and special experience. Our family had traveled from all around the world to be there, and every single member of the party raved about Jamie's meal and the whole ambiance he created.
