When I first met George I was struck by his appearance – he is tall, has twinkly eyes and a beautiful smile. It soon became clear his talents run far deeper than good looks. He cooks very elegant food – with subtle, interesting flavours and textures - and presents it beautifully. That he isn’t afraid of catering to vegans and vegetarians is a big bonus. Furthermore, the exceptionally skilful and charming way in which George interacts with guests is much appreciated – it is after all your home and your friends.
As a mother of a young baby and a foodie George gave us the chance to enjoy a night of fine dining at home (something which we don’t get chance to do anymore). George puts you at ease from the moment he arrives. His friendly manner and positive outlook make him very easy to work with and he makes sure your dining experience is perfect as he serves beautiful food. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend George again.
We recently had the pleasure and honour of experiencing a wonderful evening with George at the culinary helm! The five courses started with a mouth-watering explosion via George's secret signature amuse-bouche. Once seated, we were personally served by George. With each course, George presented and spent a moment explaining the beautifully and meticulously presented course which he prepared. A private evening with a ‘Taste of George’ is highly recommended! George’s superb culinary delights served by George himself, I would say are two great tastes which taste great together!
I was invited to a dinner where George had been enlisted to cook for our group and the evening was a riot of gourmet food & lively chat. It was so nice to have him cooking for us, serving and talking us through the components of each dish and his menu inspiration. George's passion and skill were clear and it added a really special touch to the night - a gourmet restaurant in my best friend's kitchen! The delicious mushroom ravioli was a triumph - truly the best I've tasted, better than on our recent trip to Florence!
I hosted a dinner party for my 5 very close friends. They are tough act to please as two are incredibly good cooks and I also requested a vegetarian only meal. George was more than happy to rise to the occasion and served up an authentic four-course meal that could not be faulted in presentation, taste sensation, fresh and each dish complimented the next one. George provided linen and leaves your kitchen as he found it! Relaxed time for me!
I wanted to thank you again for catering my cocktail party the last week of November. You had great ideas as to what should be served and how to set up the party, and your advice on wine was spot on. I appreciated you arranging wine delivery with your supplier. But most importantly the canapés were superb. I was amazed at the time and care you took in preparation and it was worth it. The tastes were unusual, complemented each other and the ingredients were of the highest quality. Probably my favorite was the lamb purses. And you cleaned up thoroughly. So from inception to end, it was great working with you. I hope to do so again soon.
A fantastic evening with very good friends.George created wonderful food for each course, tasty, delicious, well presented and apparently nutritious! An excellent chef who left the kitchen better than he found it! Thanks George.
George ‘s food was effortlessly prepared, delicious, fresh and very healthy ( until we got to the banoffee pie part). Pouring wine from a magnum with one arm was also impressive to watch. Great night, great food, lots of fun. We look forward to next time.
He has exceeded our expectations - his dedication, talent for creating most amazing food and knowing what you want before you do made the evening so special. From start to finish, a perfect experience - the booking process was super easy and there he was: with a big smile, ready to set up the table and create some beautiful magic of the senses!
