We had spent 5 nights in a house that Jo served breakfast every morning and some group dinners. Maybe one thing about her that impressed us all was her working attitude. At all the time she would try to provide a better services at guest’s request. Being alone, she had prepared 10 person dinner in good quality with local fresh produce. When she is around, she is everywhere yet nowhere, quietly completing her task:) Continue Reading “Private chef for a week”
From start to finish Jo has been extremely helpful & professional, along with communication for several weeks via email to create the most amazing menu for 13 guests who all had very different food preferences as well as dietary requirements and intolerances.

Divine Dish catered for our joint 40th birthday party on a wet summer’s evening. Due to the change in weather, there had to be some last minute adjustments in the way Jo could prepare her meal. She adapted to this with aplomb, and was unflappable in the wake of ever increasing ‘attentiveness’ from the party guests as the night wore on. Continue Reading “Impeccable attention to detail”
I just wanted to say a ‘big thank you’ for the wonderful service I received from A Divine dish this past week.
