"Thank you for such a wonderful experience on Tuesday. The food was delicious and everyone loved it. The perfect way to spend a special day!"
Had a brilliant night thank you mate. Will definitely be in touch about future dates.
Can’t even explain how good the food was to people, amazing to say the least.
Have a good Xmas and see you again in the new year.
Many thanks for cooking such an amazing meal on Saturday. Your food was fantastic and all my friends were saying how much they enjoyed their dinner.
Please pass on our thanks to Becky, she not only served the food beautifully, but also kept my friends glasses topped up, so they were well lubricated by the end of the evening! !!!!!
Thanks once again for contributing to a very successful special birthday celebration, it was such a treat to have someone cook for me so I could have fun with my friends rather than spending my time in the kitchen."
"In my hungover hiccuping state 🤣 🥴 I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for making Lenny‘s 50th year such a fabulous one. Once again you were a complete triumph. Dinner was absolutely scrumptious, your attention to detail second to none, you’re an absolute pleasure to have in the kitchen- nothing to much of a bother and as always the kitchen left in an immaculate state. A million thank yous. Please do also thank Becky, Becky was just wonderful, so friendly, efficient but discrete.
Thank you so much once again and I’m sure I’ll be seeing you in the not so distant future.
Best wishes Kathy X"

"Hi Mark, Just a note to say thank you for a great evening on Saturday. The boys and Paul were really pleased with your tuition and help and the delicious Indian feast you all created. We’re just getting to the end of the leftovers, which are still being thoroughly enjoyed!"
Nicola & Paul, Walton
I really must thank you, in writing, for the exceptional dinner you cooked for us on Saturday.
Everybody sung your praises with regards to the delicious food that you prepared for us. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening based around your meal, and were talking about it when we all went for a walk with the grand children yesterday!
Many thanks again, and of course I shall recommend you when the opportunity arises.
Best regards Roger"
"Dear Mark Just wanted to thank you for a lovely dinner! We all really enjoyed it!

I know Adrian has already been in touch but I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work
and beautiful food.Making it such a fantastic evening. I have had so many compliments how everyone loved it too.
Also any chance of sending me the menus for the chicken and cous cous. Boys loved it!
Many thanks again."
I wish to say how thoroughly impressed and delighted we all were with your professionalism and beautiful food on Saturday evening- it really made our evening a fantastic celebration. The Chicken Tangine was to die for.
You worked tirelessly throughout the day with no fuss or apparent stress and made our preparations for guests so much easier.
The kitchen was spotless when you left and what a joy to wake up the following morning without all that cleaning up to do.
A special word also for your team. They were great girls, engaging and always had a smile even when there was yet another wine bottle to open.!
Thanks again Mark and really hope we can find another celebration to use your services again. Well done indeed."
"Hi Mark Just wanted to say an absolutely massive thanks for Saturday night. The food was amazing....every course was delicious.
Also thanks for keeping my kitchen spotless, it was like nobody had even cooked in it!!.
My neighbours have taken your details, they seem keen to have you at theirs.
Thanks again and lovely to meet you."
Bally, Thames Ditton

I wanted to email you and thank you and Becky so much for making my 60th Birthday Dinner such an extra special evening with my special friends!
Everyone had such a wonderful time and were more than impressed with the dinner from start to finish! Plus my guest with food intolerances was more than adequately provided for!
It was a joy to have you come and cook for us and how lovely not to have all the clearing up to do after all the guests have gone!
You will definitely hear from us again and I wouldn't be surprised if some of our guests use your services in the future.
A big thank you once again for all your hard work and professionalism in making some lovely birthday memories for me.
Lynne, Walton On Thames
"Mark, we cannot thank you enough for such a fantastic Friday evening. As per usual your culinary expertise is faultless and dinner was truly wonderful. It really is an absolute pleasure not only to experience your culinary delights, but to have your friendly and positive nature in the kitchen. You create such a great atmosphere. And to top it off a spotless kitchen. All in all, the making of a perfect evening.
Thank you so much and definitely see you again"
Kathleen & Lenny, Hindhead
Thank you so much, we really enjoyed everything you did for us. The food was excellent. The starter was extremely good. Everybody talked about it on Sunday, and both my Norwegian sisters-in-law were wondering if you would let them have the recipe. I told them I could ask you, but that I didn’t believe that you would let them have it?
Thanks to you I had a relaxing and a nice party, even though I think my Sunday would have been a little better if I had spent more time in the kitchen than with the wine glass…
We will certainly recommend you to our friends, and I think Dan Odfjell will keep in touch with you regarding the wine as well.
Thank you again, I am sure we will see you again soon :)"
"Thanks Mark , I have just opened my e-mails to send you a Big Thank you.
Everyone enjoyed the food and Paddy and I have not stopped eating Goulash since you left…delish!!
Still got some chocolate brownies too .
It was lovely for me not having to think of anything …you really do take away the pressure. We decided that you left my kitchen cleaner than when you walked in !!!
Thank you once again and look forward to seeing you in the future for a Thai Chicken curry !!!
Thank you very much for last night.
We all absolutely loved the evening and the girls have not stopped raving about it since. You were a dream to work with and such a patient teacher - for a very varied skill set!
The food was absolutely delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by all - as you could no doubt tell from everyone's empty plates.
Many many thanks again - I had the best 55th birthday that I will always remember"
"Mark, Thank you for giving us such a fun and interesting evening. My parents really enjoyed cooking with the grandchildren and everyone learned something new. A great success. Thank you again"
We wish to thank you for your tremendous cooking and food presentation at Adrian's 60th birthday dinner.
You worked tirelessly throughout the day and your highly organised and relaxed manner inspired us with confidence totally on all aspects.
The food was sensationally presented and delicious and was enjoyed thoroughly by our guests.
To have achieved this quality in a domestic kitchen setting for 28 seated guests was a remarkable achievement.
Thanks again for making the evening so special and particularly leaving the kitchen in a condition that looked like the ' fairies' had waved a magic wand to clear"
Karen & Adrian, Keston
"We had such a great evening thank you. The food was amazing - all our friends enjoy their food (as you could probably tell!!) and they all thought the food was fantastic. The whole evening was perfect - your preparation, service, menu, quality of food, and presentation.
Thank you again - everyone took your cards so hopefully you'll get recommendations from it. We will certainly contact you again in the future. Many thanks"
Helen & Martin, Mortlake
Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. Everything has been done to perfection and the whole dinner was superb.
Our guests were overwhelmed with your delicious food and how all was brilliantly served.
Your assistant was very nice and extremely helpful too.
We are really looking forward to having you back in the coming year for our next celebrations!
Thank you for everything"
Andrew & Georgina, Chiswick
We cannot thank you enough for such an amazing evening of culinary delights. Your cuisine was absolutely delicious - thank you so much for making such a mammoth effort, it was so appreciated and such a treat to have our very own personal chef. We’ve had the most wonderful thank yous from all our friends, I could take the credit, but as I just sliced a lime and tipped some nuts into a bowl the credit is all yours.
Not only were your culinary skills second to none, but organisational skills too. You were unbelievably discrete, we didn’t even hear you take out your equipment, which again was totally amazing you had brought everything with you, even the bin!!! And the kitchen - sparkling clean!!! How wonderful to end an evening with no clearing up!
You’ve set the bar far too high, how can I ever entertain again ; )
We, without a shadow of a doubt, will highly recommend you to all our friends.
Thank you so much once again and what a truly amazing thing you are doing for charity. You should be very proud!
I’m sure we’ll be seeing you again soon."
Kathleen & Lenny, Hindhead
"The barbecue was absolutely fabulous and everything I hoped it would be, the food was outstanding."
I just wanted to drop you a line and says very very big thank you for a great dinner party and I look forward to the next one in December.
All our guest have come back to me today to say what a great time they had last night and all the ladies took your cards so expect some more bookings.
Once again very big thank you, it was the best"
"Hi Mark, hope you had a great summer and a great holiday! The barbecue was absolutely fabulous and everything I hoped it would be, the food was outstanding, thanks again!"
I just wanted to say an extra thank you for the wonderful spread that you created for us on Saturday.
David and I were delighted with the food and the calm way you coped with all the work! Thank you too to your capable helper Blythe. Our guests were very pleased with the quality and quantity of the food - despite no kangaroo kebabs! The pavlovas were especially well received - so many commented about the delicious cream too - don't know if you did something special to it?
The bbq and plates were collected with no problem and we felt that the party was so much easier for us, not having to worry about any of the food catering.
The weather could have been warmer - at least it wasn't raining for the rest of the evening but we had the patio heater on and once the children had gone, we lit the fire pit, so all went well.
It was wonderful to be able to circulate all evening without popping in and out to sort food.
Lucy felt very celebrated.
We will certainly think of you if we do something similar in the future
Thank you again"
David & Dorothy, Walton on Thames
Thank you for both for the wonderful meal we enjoyed on Friday. I know all the family loved the food. My fish was absolutely delicious.
I was pleased to meet you and I hope we can do this again in the future"
Thank you so much for such an amazing spread of food!
Food was sensational, many went back for more! You worked very hard all day Saturday preparing everything fresh.
Very grateful for all your hardwork - everyone particular commented on how fantastic the chicken dish was! good choice.
Kitchen left immaculate, all equipment packed away and left overs in fridge - thank you again! We all enjoyed the food Sunday evening after a long day sorting out the rest of the house....
Bar staff were also very professional.
Thank you for everything and making the night go so smoothly"
Thank you for looking after us so well. Very much appreciated from all of us.
It was lovely to enjoy our guests and not to have the worry about the menu.
I know it was enjoyed by all. Thanks for all your efforts and also thanks for supporting Sparks for many years.

"Mark, thank you so much for cooking for my family and I. Over an extended period we have experienced some real highs, and always been impressed by both the tastiness and presentation of your meals. You have taken up our requests for healthy eating, but also provided some memorable treats and taken Shepherd’s Pie to new heights. We are looking forward to having you in our kitchen again soon"
"Hi Mark, Thank you very much for the wonderful dinner last night. Everybody was so impressed with the whole experience. Your ears must have been burning for hours afterwards!!
All your hard work was very much appreciated"
Geraldine & Thomas, Harrow
Thank you so much for such a fabulous meal on Saturday. It was a real treat to be entertained in our own home and so many compliments from our family and friends about the delicious courses!!
The food was fabulous, top drawer as always and it was lovely to see you again and great to hear too that your business is going from strength to strength.
Look forward to booking our next event with you,
All the best and thanks again"
Kathryn & Simon, Brentwood
"You made it a very special evening for Fran. Everybody agreed that the food was wonderful and there was some heated debate about which was the best course, which demonstrates just how good they all were (but I think the panna cotta won in the end!).
And the service was also very unobtrusive, but extremely friendly and efficient. It was also a real joy to come into such a tidy kitchen afterwards - it normally looks like a war zone after one of our dinner parties.
You really did us proud and we look forward to seeing you again as soon as we can think of a good excuse for another celebration!
Many, many thanks to you and your colleagues"
"Yet another fantastic evening. From the time you arrive, till you leave, everything flows seamlessly with the only intrusion being the arrival of a fabulous meal! All our guests were truly impressed. Look forward to seeing you soon"
"Thank you very much, we all really enjoyed the evening and your food! Thanks again"
Dominic, Bethnal Green
"Mark, Just a note to thank you sincerely for a tremendous evening last Saturday. I honestly don’t think it could have been better. The food was amazing and everyone loved it, and you and your assistant took care of everything so well that it couldn’t have been anything other than a brilliant evening. Anne and I were genuinely impressed and we’d definitely love to have you come back and cook for us again. All the best"
We had such a fantastic evening - thank you so much for everything - Conor really enjoyed the whole experience.
Will be highly recommending you to friends"
"Hi Mark, huge thanks for helping make an enjoyable evening even better. The food and service were great, please pass on my thanks to Atilla we had a great time.
Delighted you enjoyed the Liger Belair Vosne Romanee so much. It's great even in poor years and far more affordable too!
Thanks again for your very professional approach and I hope I can find an excuse to repeat it some time soon"
"Thanks you so much for being the Architect and Executor of probably the best evening we’ve hosted at home – no records broken on the booze front I’m afraid to say!
Your prep was meticulous, and the lovely aromas coming from the kitchen were testament of what was to follow – nothing short of perfection from presentation and taste! Please extend our thanks to Eva and Zoltan as they were both a delight and gave the evening a real sense of occasion with their fabulous support with the drinks and serving (and cleaning) up; they are a real asset to your Team – both so willing to engage!
Having umm’ed and ahh’ed over how to celebrate my 40-10th – once we’d spoken, I was confident that you were the right guy / team for the job, and I was reassured by your relaxed approach in all dealings.
We both know our way around our kitchen – and were very impressed with the menu selections and the whole process – disappointingly your Panna Cottas are far better than mine!!!
And we would not hesitate in recommending Chez Vous Cuisine to anyone seeking a really special and intimate dining experience – all our guest were blown away!
Once again - thanks and I hope we engage your services again!
Nice one Mark!"
Adam & Julia, Sidcup
"Apologies it's taken me so long to write to you to say thank you.
Everyone had such an amazing time when you cooked for Ian's birthday, It was like having a Michellin star dinner in my own home. You and your waiting staff were incredibly unobtrustive, genial, hardworking and above all, you produced the most delightful meal!
One of our guests had planned lamb the following weekend, but having tasted yours, decided he wouldn't as it would not come up to scratch.
3 weeks on from the dinner, our friends are still talking about the evening!
I would not hesitate to recommend you to all of my friends and look forward to the next time I find an excuse to bring you back!"

Thanks again, I'd happilly recommend you"

"Hi Mark, Thank you so much for a WONDERFUL evening - everyone thoroughly enjoyed the "event"! it will definately be one that we will cherish and you and Atillla were lovely too.
David does not usually like 'pink' meat but you have totally changed his mind as the lamb was perfect, so tender & delicious - he was totally impressed!
We certainly will be keeping your details to hand for our next major celebration, if not before, and will also be recommending you to our friends.
Thank you again Mark for making our evening such a fabulous & successful evening, all the very best.

I actually wrote you a little thank you card last night and will post it this morning on my way to work. I am sure that you are used to getting high praise for your cooking, what a talent!
I really appreciated Attila's work too; he made it possible for me just to receive my guests and sit down with them without running back and forth to the kitchen getting drinks etc.
You are a class act and I will certainly recommend you and use you again, if the occasion arises. Thanks again”
“Thank you so much for the wonderful dinner party on the 15th. We had a fantastic time and I know our guests did too. The food was outstanding and it was such an enjoyable and memorable evening. I may well be back in touch soon to arrange something for Ben's 40th next summer. Thanks again”
“Mark, Rave reviews even when you were out of earshot - the friends we had all took a card so fingers crossed you will get some extra bookings from them.
We will def see you again!”
Sir Matthew Pinsent
“We all had such a good time and thanks so much for the amazing food and great service. We said we would all definitely do it again”
“Thanks mark we certainly appreciated it all ....I think that was the most noisy crowd I am going to have.....and dare I say it deteriorated from there...one chap was definitely poured into his taxi!
The food was delish and Attila was great fun. I hope to be able to confirm our next couple of dates soon"
“Many thanks Mark we all enjoyed it very much. Must do it again sometime”
“Just to say thank you for the wonderful food the other Saturday. Everyone really enjoyed it and had a great time. Whole experience was top notch! No doubt we will be in touch again to organise something similar in the future”
“Thank you so much for helping make Ian's birthday so special - the food was absolutely delicious and Alan made the table look spectacular - everyone thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening and we will definitely use you again!”
“I just wanted to thank you for the truly delicious meal you cooked for our family on Saturday night. While it was a strange experience to be sitting in our own dining room being served the meal, it was such a joy not to be in the kitchen cooking it!! Please say thank you to Alan - who did a good, unobtrusive job. the lamb was absolutely delicious and the white chocolate cheesecake was THE most delicious I have ever tasted. Hope to see you again sometime”
“As I said on the phone, thanks for a great evening. Food was excellent. Cheesecake deserves a special mention as does your staff member (whose name escapes me). Better than most waiters at m-starred restaurants I’ve been to. Happy to recommend you to anyone I know and will certainly give you a call again if the occasion arises”
“Thanks again, one friend said it is the best meal she has had all year ....the beef was fantastic.!!!”
“Absolutely fabulous my darling. Everyone raving about food & atmosphere. Thank you sooooo much”
“Mark - Saturday night exceeded my expectations! The food was just gorgeous, every course delicious - and how on earth it came from that kitchen I will never know. Your staff were wonderful. When I came down to the dining room and saw how it had been transformed I was gobsmacked. The waiter who served us was so charming and attentive, he had us all spellbound. The kitchen was left looking better than I expect it has ever looked before!
The entire party was thrilled by the whole experience. Tamra had a wonderful weekend and the meal was definitely the highlight. She was beaming throughout.
Can’t stop thinking about that creamy chicken pie filling... Wanted to put my whole face into the cheesecake... And am dying for recipe for your Asian salad! Could I convince you to share your secret recipe?! Thanks SO much..”
“Chris and I really enjoyed the evening. Food and service were both fantastic and it was exactly how Chris wanted to celebrate his 40th. The guests loved it and were very impressed and I can't believe how stress free you made it - or how clean you left the kitchen. Many Thanks for all the hard work and hope to see you again”
“We had a great time thanks and a few sore heads to prove it. Food was great thanks.”
Peter, Great Malvern
“Thanks for everything. Friday night was a great night!
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food and hopefully we can arrange a BBQ in the summer with you. Take Care and thanks again”
Nicki & George, Theydon Bois
“Thanks for this but more especially for the meal.
As you saw from the empty plates going back in the kitchen, everyone was very pleased with the meal. Great job, many thanks!”
“It was great evening and we are planning hopefully about having you cater a barbecue later in the summer.
The party went on until the small hours (got told by my daughter when she came back from the pub with her mates to find old people dancing!) All the best”
“What can we say!? Saturday was a tremendous success & all the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The only bone of contention was agreeing on the favourite course, even if one could be identified!
Not only did the meal taste delicious but it was beautifully presented. Alan was charming & very attentive. It was very kind of you to offer such a wonderful charity contribution & we consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have been successful in the bid.
It was lovely to walk into an immaculate kitchen after the meal.
Thank you again. We hope to see you again at a function in the future.
With best wishes”
Julia & David, Beckenham

Mark & Leah, Orpington

“We had a ball and the food was absolutely first class”
“Thanks – we had a really great time – the food was great and having you and Alan there helped us really relax and enjoy the evening.
I’m sure we’ll find another excuse to do it all again!!
Best regards and thanks again to both you and Alan”
Bruce & Sue, Hook
“Mark, I think you're a genius! The food was absolutely stunning - completely surpassed our expectations. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and it was lovely to play host and yet relax!
Thank you so much. So sorry it took a while to get round to sending this - just starting to feel human again after too much wine!! We would like to do it again; we will be in touch later this week to sort dates! Thanks again to both of you!”
Louise and Scott, Maida Vale

“A really fabulous evening thanks - the food was delicious, great to savour all the different aromas from the kitchen and it was wonderful to sit and relax with our friends without the pressure of rushing in and out of the kitchen!!
Isabelle said last night that she wished she could have cheesecake like that every night .....”
“Thank you very much for the fabulous dinner on Saturday night. The food was great, I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, you could probably tell by the empty plates afterwards! The rest of the evening went very well (there were no more surprise Butlers) but we did take a trip to the pub in our fancy dress!
We were all really impressed with you and your waiter, and your very professional and competent approach. It was very nice to have to do any clearing up in the Kitchen the following day. I hope you didn't think us too rowdy and the Butler was not too much of a shock!
Thank you very much again, we will definitely be recommending your services to our friends”
“Saturday evening was fabulous!! I have had numerous texts saying how much everyone enjoyed themselves - you made the whole evening so 'stress free'. The quality of your food, including the cooking and presentation were perfect, and your white chocolate cheesecake was to die for!
Now we have your number, we are most certainly going to keep it handy, and would have no hesitation at all in recommending your services to others”
Tina, East Grinstead
“Thank you so much for the wonderful food, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and have said we will do it again, so will be in touch to make another date. Thank you again”

An enjoyable night had by all, although I think there were a few hangovers in the morning”
Caroline, Worcester Park
“Many thanks from all of us for such a fabulous evening. The food was absolutely out-of-this-world delicious, and I can assure you that your “ultimate chicken pie” in particular will be talked about for many years to come! And we loved having you in the house and our kitchen really helping to create such a great atmosphere.
We will definitely be in touch again, as I suspect will others we have wholeheartedly recommended you to”
Martin & Veena, Amersham
“Nick and I, and indeed the whole party loved the food, and the fact that we had only a couple of dozen scones left was proof!! The timing of savoury and then tea/coffee and scones and sweet was brill. Loads of people commented on the wonderful taste of the English strawberries with the traditional scones in the garden environment it was a real 'hit'. We will certainly be in touch again, and have given your number to two people at the party who asked about the food”
“Thanks for the fabulous meal that you prepared for Tina and our friends. They all really enjoyed themselves and I really enjoyed the left over's. Even reheated it tasted great so it must have been amazing on the night. The cheese cake was to die for and if you ever want to divulge the recipe then please send it to me”
Richard, East Grinstead
“Thank you for all your help over the summer.
It made a huge difference to us having you there & all our guests were impressed by the quality of the food, so I have no doubts we’ll be calling on your service again in the near future”
“Mark, it was superb, my brother loved it and everyone commented on how good the food was. They all left this morning still talking about it! I've already recommended you to my parents, just couldn't fault the service or quality. Thanks again”
“I thought you did a great job and this was echoed by everyone attending - I'm sure that you will be seeing not only us again, but probably the others too! Will be in touch again, without doubt”
“We had a fabulous evening - thank you so much for all your hard work and producing such fantastic food ! I know I can speak for all of us when I say it really was a special treat to have such a great chef cook for us !

Thanks again for such a special evening and I hope our paths will cross again soon”

“Tara loved it and was so pleased there was a bit of curry left over. Everything was great and everyone really loved the meal. You and Lee did a great job and would love to do it again on the next occasion. Really liked the cheese selection too, even that's almost all gone.
Thanks again for a great job”

"Thanks Mark for the updated recipe but more importantly for a great afternoon on Saturday. Caroline had a fantastic time, as did the rest of us, and they were raving about it all weekend. The rest of the weekend went well.
The duck in the evening was divine. The sticky toffee pudding didn't hang around for long!
We all really enjoyed ourselves and were very impressed with your presentation style, and by you being unfazed by having a group of 'hens' chattering away at various points about various other things too.
We learned plenty, and hope only that we can remember your words of wisdom and apply them at regular intervals. Our other halves will be most impressed. Thanks again"
“I would like to say thank you and Brian so much for a wonderful evening on Saturday. The food was just phenomenal and everyone really enjoyed it. I think you can probably tell by the empty plates that were returned to the kitchen after every course! We were also impressed by the cleanliness of the kitchen afterwards and the fact that most of the washing up had been done. It certainly takes the pressure off you when you are hosting an event to not be in the kitchen all the time.
Once again thank for providing a memorable experience and I will be contacting you again if we ever need to do something similar again”
“I had a really wonderful time. It was just what I wanted, a very special evening with family and close friends, and delicious food. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and the food was wonderful.
It was a pleasure to have you in the house, and you were extremely patient with the stream of people in and out of the kitchen all afternoon! Paul and Dee were perfect waiters, quietly efficient and helpful, but not obtrusive. And the kitchen was so clean and tidy after you left, it was much appreciated.
Thank you so much, it was a great weekend. Now I'm just trying to think of an excuse to have you back to cook for us again soon!”
“We were delighted with your work and that of the waitresses, and are just sorry that we didn't manage to convey that to you at the time. Too much to drink and say to the guests! Thanks again and hope to see you soon”
“I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a fantastic evening we all had a great time and the food was amazing. I am certain to be in touch with you again in the future”
“I had a really great time. Although it never seemed at all rushed or pressured, you got me working solidly and the end results were very rewarding. I could never have believed that I would have been able to produce such an authentic-tasting banquet. Your clear explanations of the reasons behind everything we did made the cooking process even more enjoyable and have given me a lot of confidence to apply the same approach to other dishes. I feel that you have not just shown me how to cook some great recipes; you've given me grounding in the basics of cooking really great food”
“I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we all enjoyed Saturday night. The universal opinion was that the food was fantastic, and I have to say the beef Wellington was the best I have ever eaten. I am sure I’ll be in touch again soon!"
“It was a pleasure to meet you, to see you in action in my kitchen and to enjoy the superb dinner you produced for us on Saturday. The group that night much enjoyed each course and I think together we made the right choice of menu.
All gathered around my table had spent time or had lived or were from the Philippines and had not seen each other for some time, so it was a great reunion, much enhanced by your culinary contribution.
Thank you so much and, yes, we shall be in touch again, if not this year, then definitely next year.”
“Thank you for a wonderful meal on Saturday. Everyone really enjoyed the food. Please also pass our thanks to Alan for all his hard work.”
“Thank you, we really enjoyed the meal last Saturday. It felt very decadent to have someone cook for us, and as the clean plates indicated, the food was excellent. We even enjoyed the leftovers for lunch the day after! We will definitely recommend you to friends and family.”
“We really enjoyed the food, thank you, it didn't last long after you left! Thank you for an inspiring lesson, very professional and fun at the same time.”
“We had a great time on Saturday night and our guests loved it. Thank you so much for preparing such a wonderful meal for us. Steve really enjoyed himself too, and was really chuffed with the surprise. Thanks once again – and believe me you are now firmly in my address book!”
“The dinner party was great, thank-you so much! A wonderfully stress free night of fantastic food and no clearing up!. Thanks again, I've recommended you to lots of my friends and colleagues.”
"Thank you so much for Friday night.
The food was absolutely amazing, I’ve never tasted anything like it! And I think you can tell the rest of the party agreed either by the short-lived silence or polished plates!
Thank you so much again, I hope you don’t mind if I forward you details on to friends who are considering dinner parties in the future"
Stephanie, Worcester Park
"Many thanks for a fantastic evening of great food, I think we finally ended up turning in at 2am! needless to say I felt a little weary yesterday. It was lovely to see a tidy kitchen at the end of the evening (its a shame the kids can't leave it like that :-))"
Caroline, Worcester Park

"We had a thoroughly good night and it was such a treat for me not to be doing the cooking. The food was excellent and the kitchen left pristine. Thank you so much."
"Thank you so much for all your hard work on Saturday and the preparation you did. I have had so many phone calls from all my guests, saying what a fabulous party it was and they all mentioned the wonderful food. You deserve to get lots of work because you put your heart and soul into your cooking !"
Jenny & Trevor, Kingswood

Sam, London Bridge
“Thanks for super food, the beef wellington in particular was raved about, but everything was delicious. We look forward to having you again.”
“A big thank you from us all, Clare was over the moon and says she thinks that having the celebration at home was the best possible and very personal & special.
She is very grateful for all your efforts, as are Daniel and I, the Goats Cheese Peppers went down very well and proved popular with all. This morning she said how nice it would be if you were coming again tonight, so it looks like I’m out of a job”
