The Little Cooking Company

Providing a bespoke personal chef service to Oxshott, Cobham, Esher and the surrounding areas of Surrey

What is a personal chef?

A personal chef focuses on the weekly dinner meal, serves several clients, usually one per day, and provides multiple meals that are custom designed for the clients' particular requests and dietary requirements. These meals are packaged and stored so that the clients may enjoy them at their leisure, in the comfort of their own home.

How does the personal chef service work?

First, I will meet with you to determine your food likes, dislikes, preferences, allergies, etc. and customise a menu specifically for you. Once I've designed a menu for you, I will submit it for your approval to make sure it's okay. On the agreed upon cook date, I will come to your home with all of my pots, pans, utensils, and ingredients and prepare your bespoke menu. Then, I'll leave simple re-heating instructions. Finally, I will leave your kitchen spotless - and full of the wonderful aromas of homemade food.

Who can use a personal chef?

You might spend your days working and your evenings shepherding your children from one activity to the next.

How long will you be in my home?

I will prepare several different fresh meals and side dishes from scratch which takes several hours, so I’ll generally be in your home from around 10am – 2 or 3pm.

Do I have to be there when you come to cook?

Not at all, as long as appropriate arrangements are made in advance.

How often will you come to my house to cook? Do I need to sign a long-term contract?

It’s up to you. You might prefer a weekly service with all meals prepared and left in your fridge, or perhaps a fortnightly cook date with a week’s worth of meals in the fridge and the remainder stored in the freezer. You might like to try us out for a one-off dinner party, or surprise a set of new parents with a week’s worth of fresh, energy-sustaining meals. Just get in touch and we’ll find a way of making it work.

Are you available for dinner parties?

Yes, and I’ll be happy to prepare in advance for you to re-heat and serve to your guests, if that would be more convenient.
