As Many of us are now opting to hire cottages for party weekends or lavishly entertain in our own homes as an alternative to restaurant dining, so the appeal of hiring a private chef has grown.
The advantages are many, including a more personal approach to dining, exclusivity and something a little bit different for our guests to enjoy. Which is why Greycoat Lumleys has launched MyChef, a 'chefs in your home' service that encompasses everything from a family cook to a Michelin-starred chef. Greycoat Lumleys is famed for providing high calibre staff for everyone from time-poor professionals who need help in the home, to a performance brigade of workers to ensure the smooth running of the country estate.
Business is booming, with the northern office now in its third year offering the same quality of service and traditional values that have been available from the London base for the past 20 years. Director Laura Harrall who travels around the region recruiting staff and ensuring they are a perfect 'fit' for homes and estates say: 'We aim to create a bespoke service for the client and secure the best candidates for the job. All of this service right up to the point of the client offering a job to someone comes with a fee. You only pay if we find someone'.
