Covid Update

Unfortunately I am not able to offer on site catering or chef services at the current time. I am able to provide meals for collection and a Friday night takeaway.

Private Chef & Outside Catering


As The Rustic Gourmet I aim to provide delicious food, using really fresh ingredients prepared with care. Ingredients may be foraged , harvested from my garden or purchased from trusted and reliable local producers and suppliers with whom I have built good relationships.

I am available as a private chef to fully cater your home or holiday cottage or to come in to cook just one meal. I’ll cook in the Kitchen, Garden, on the Beach, in fact almost anywhere! I can even bring my woodfired oven.
I have catered events at Plas Cadnant, and The Outbuildings on Anglesey, Fort Belan on the Lleyn Peninsular , Casterne Hall and Tissington Hall in Derbyshire.

Only the Best

Fresh Ingredients, Tasty Meals

Unique menus are created for every client and I will help you make informed choices, telling you about what is in season and the best local produce. This doesn’t mean I won’t go further afield for ingredients, olive oil, lemons, spices …
My cooking is an eclectic mix of the cuisines that I love.

Traditional British, Celtic, Mediterranean , Eastern European and Indian.

I will happily deal with any dietary requirements . I cater for small functions and weddings, can provide intimate dinners for two, dinner parties for larger numbers , shoot lunches or business entertaining.
