A.P. Chef has a huge appetite for entertaining, whether that is hosting supper clubs or planning a private event, we love nothing more than uniting people through food.
Whether you are planning a wedding, a special birthday party or an anniversary. A.P. Chef works closely with you and will advise on the menu and the set up for the party, creating the event that you envisioned and dreamed of.
Every event is different, and we send out a sample menu and work closely with you as the client to create something special and bespoke.
A.P. Chef’s Mission
To provide an experience that unites friends and family with seasonal cooking that celebrates nourishing food with maximum flavour, using exceptional local produce, creating a memory that will last a lifetime.
How Does it work?
We bring the A.P. Chef restaurant to you, so you don’t need to worry about restaurant bookings or how you are going to get there. Hold your dinner party at home and select from our Three Course or Seasonal Sharing Plates Menus.
Menu & Dietary Requirements
We ask that the party chooses the same menu for all. A.P. Chef will take care of all dietary requirements and can suggest an alternative dish when necessary. For example, we can suggest a vegetarian alterative if you wanted to select a meat or fish main. All final dietary requirements and numbers will need to be agreed at least two weeks before the dinner. Please get in touch to request to see a sample menu.
Once the menu has been discussed and decided, A.P. Chef will send a booking deposit to confirm the date and full payment is requested prior the booking. A.P. Chef will send an invoice for this. For parties that are 20+, full payment is required up to a month before and for smaller parties up to a week before.
A.P. Chef will arrive 1.5 hours before you would like the starters to be served.
An assistant is required for bookings above 8 and for tasting menus however smaller bookings often choose to have this option and we can take care of the drinks and food service. As part of the service provided, we will set the table with crockery provided by the client. Any serving platters required for the menu will be provided by A.P. Chef.
A.P. Chef Promise
Your Kitchen Will Be Left Sparkling
A.P. Chef will take control of your kitchen from cooking, serving and clearing. We will leave your kitchen sparkling once the desserts have been served and cleared, allowing you to totally relax and enjoy the food and the evening.
We Believe That Good Food is For Sharing
A.P. Chef is proud of the food that we create and loves to share what we do with others. We like to take pictures of the food at an event and occasionally of the dining experience and the guests. We also respect our clients privacy and do let us know if you would like to opt out of this. If you would like to share your experience on social media, please tag @apchefuk
A beautifully prepared meal is a fantastic way to bring your team together. Whether it is a lunch time gathering, canapé event or team-building day, we can create a bespoke menu plan to suit your requirements.
Hosting supper clubs and bringing people together by creating culinary experiences is an absolute passion. We continuously curate new menu concepts and events and there is something magical about gathering around a table, sharing a meal, and connecting with others through the universal language of food. By creating menus that showcase fresh, locally sourced ingredients, we aim to create a memorable dining experience that celebrates the richness and diversity of our natural surroundings.
Stay tuned for A.P. Chef events.
