Private dinner parties, holiday catering, corporate lunches, sailing lunches, shooting lunches, cocktail canapes or deliciously flavoursome platters of food for parties or large gatherings, whatever it may be I am here to take the stress away from you.

Trained at The Bath School of Cookery and eleven years of events management in London working closely with the top catering companies in the UK under my belt, I set up Sophie The Private Chef in 2016 and started providing small local businesses lunches & dinners and cakes to local deli's and word spread fast!

As well as providing my services to many repeat local customers, I do a lot of holiday rental properites around the New Forest supplying dinner party food and fridge fill food for their stay.

I absolutely love Ottolenghi style of cooking, amazing salads and marinades with a twist, quirky food that all tastes delicious.  I also love my cordon bleu style of cooking too - my beef wellington and creme brulee are incredible.

I can provide you with a catering service to suit your needs - please have a look through my services and menus on this page and to see more recent photos of my food follow :-http://www.facebook.com/sophietheprivatechef

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 causes 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.
