We are The Illustrated Chef
Here at The Illustrated Chef we love everything barbecue.
From the authentic smokey flavour you would expect from real coals to the theatre of fire, our kitchen, always being on show whilst we grill up our incredible food. Our vision was to take the oldest form of cooking and bring it into the modern age, with a twist. Our talented chefs can work with you to create a menu that will exceed all expectations, from show stopping canapés to sumptuous starters, all the way through to the show-stopping main event - and not forgetting our delicious desserts!
Anything can be achieved on the grill.
Let us use our knowledge and experience to inject passion and precision into creating events that are the highlight of any calendar. We can set up at office spaces, outdoor spaces, in the middle of the city or the middle of nowhere, and provide an event to remember and food to match.
A Little About Me...
I have been cooking professionally for 11 years with experience in both Rosette and Michelin Star awarded kitchens. I have cooked in restaurants, hotels and event spaces catering for events of all sizes. I have cooked for a wide variety of clientèle including royalty, celebrities and industry peers. It was my passion for the events industry that drove me to establish my own business, we are now 5 years in and evolving each year.
As well as cooking, I have another passion - tattoos. It has taken some dedicating but I have been happily adding to my collection for over 20 years and I am not finished just yet. It as from this passion that our name 'The Illustrated Chef' originally derived, the flair and expression we inject into our food only make this name even more apt.
We believe in the importance of using fresh, seasonable, locally sourced produce. We have established a strong relationship with our local suppliers, including the farm on which we are based who provide of all our meat. 100% traceability of all our produce is very important to us. Flexibility and creativity is at the heart of everything we do, ensuring we can offer tailor made packages to suit all our client's tastes.
