After holding senior Chef positions in top hotels and restaurants, Dean further developed his skills and taste by spending time overseas – gaining insight into local produce, trends and a multiple of cuisines. After years of restaurant experience, Dean wanted to bring fine dining into people’s homes so he began his Private Chef service. What began as a few upscale dinner parties, developed into a full-service fine dining company with a passion for luxurious cuisine, fine wines, professional presentation and flawless service.

Cooking Classes with a Michelin chef
If you would like to learn a thing or two, some tricks of the trade, we can organise for one of our Chefs to come to your home or venue to teach, either one on one or in a group. Maybe, you need some inspiration for savory dishes, to brush up on your dessert and pastry work, learn dishes to impress your guests at your very own dinner party, or maybe, you need to learn the very basics. The lesson will be tailored to your exact requirements.
