Vibrant, plentiful and bold dishes that are exciting and delicious. My food often has a strong Mediterranean feel with lots of charm and creativity.  I keep my menus simple and seasonal but big on flavour and design.

About me

Having trained at The Bath School of Cookery and with over ten years event management under my belt, I set up 'Sophie The Private Chef' 10 years ago when we moved to the New Forest.

I know how important it is to create wonderful, eye catching dinner party feasts for my clients, vibrant and colourful buffets, private yacht brunches & lunches, fridge fills for holiday makers coming to visit the New Forest, or simply to help larger families in busier times. 

Using fresh, seasonal produce, organic & free-range ingredients, sourced from local suppliers, I ensure that my Clients' needs are met, whether it be a canapé party for 80 people or a dinner for 12.


Health & Safety


Once the food has been delivered, responsibility for keeping the food in a refridgerated state falls to the client.  Please ask for advice if you require further information regarding the storage, consumption or reheating of all food. 

We reserve the right to remove any uneaten food at the end of your event in order to prevent cases of food poisoning caused by the inappropriate storage of food.

To prevent spread of infection we request that our clients ask guests who have recently suffered from sickness NOT to attend their event. Norovirus and other infections are easily spread through touching food and where lots of people gather in close environment.

I have Level 2 Food Safety in Catering and full public liability insurance.
