Our Private Chef Serves Up Memorable Holidays
We’ve teamed up with two talented locals to offer exclusive in-cottage private chef dining experiences and pre-prepared meals for your holiday. THIR13EN’s chef Ben and his partner Isabella celebrate some of the best local produce from our beautiful region. So, if you’re looking for a gourmet experience, with minimal food miles and produce provenance guaranteed – this is it!
A private chef makes for a memorable holiday
Perhaps you want to take the hassle out of arrival day and organise a meal to be delivered? You might be celebrating a special occasion like an anniversary, birthday, hen weekend or a pre-Christmas get together with your ‘friends family’. Or maybe you just fancy a delicious, gourmet meal without the shopping, cooking, and clearing up – or the taxi rides! Our personal chef is the answer.
Choose from a Tasting Menu, Three Course Meal or Canapes
Whatever the reason for dining, we have three menu options. Choose from our spectacular seven-course Tasting Menu, two options on the Three Course Menu, or opt for the Canapes. Whatever you decide, your private chef Ben will come to your cottage and cook while Izzy organises ‘front of house’. You can watch him prepare your courses, talk ingredients, and learn a few techniques! Alternatively, take a soothing dip in the hot tub or relax with delicious canapes in front of a roaring fire while you wait. Nice!
We offer these dining experiences and pre-prepared meal deliveries to all our cottages. For the delivery service, please note you may need to heat some parts of the meal up yourself. We can also deliver within social distancing guidelines for those staying in Spring/Summer 2021.
How to hire your private chef
Look at our sample menus and if these take your fancy, get in touch and we’ll introduce you to your private chef, Ben. The team at THIR13EN will liaise with you to customise the menu to your party’s palates and dietary requirements to create a truly memorable meal.
What is the cost of private chef hire?
We’ve kept the prices reasonable and you’ll be paying less than you would at a local restaurant for a far superior meal. What’s more, we leave you to organise the drinks although we can advise on a suitable grape for your choice. Ben and Izzy provide a number of menus (these are merely samples), with three-course meals starting at £40 per person.
The following are sample menus only and can be customised. All menus are prepared by your personal chef with locally- sourced produce. Please let us know if your party has any special dietary requirements.
