Thank you

Hi Emma and Sophie,

I am finally back to earth and reality. I had a wonderful and a dream honey moon in Barbados and Miami and now I am back to our home as Mrs Campbell.

Please allow us to thank you so much for the beautiful surprise of the magnum of Champagne that we found in our room in Barbados. It was like you were still with us.

I Don’t know where to exactly start to thank you for making our big day as beautiful and stress free as possible and much more than we both had expected. I guess the hard work started well before the wedding day, and on the day it was nothing less than the la crème de la crème in terms of your timing, service and the food of course. I am still going through all the thanks cards and emails from our guests and no one has omitted to mention how good the food was and the degree of presentation for such big party of 180 guests.

From the first meeting we had with you and the head chef, we knew we have chosen the right people for our special day in comparison to the other two companies we spoke to. I still remember your quote “ in weddings, one mistake is one too many” and true to your words, what you all had delivered, was nothing less than perfect for what we had envisaged .

Please pass our gratitude to the entire team and I am sure you will hear from us again when my sister  is ready for her wedding (she just needs to find a husband first haha).

All the very best and I won’t hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends.

Mr & Mrs Campbell (I really need to get use to this new signature).

Just a quick belated note to say a very big thank you for the dinner you organised for us recently down in Somerset. We all had a wonderful time and the parentals were absolutely made up by the evening and by how good Chef In My Kitchen were. Attached is a couple of photos of the evening! (Did also send a thank you card but don’t know whether you had received it or not in your Cheshire base).

Regards and thanks again.

Dear Sophie,

Thank you (!) and sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

We were delighted with the evening and how it all went. The table setting, food and service was excellent and we are still receiving wonderful feedback and compliments verbally and in thank you letters about every aspect of the evening. To quote a few:

The catering was magnificent!

Marvellous Fine dinner, food absolutely delicious, the hall so beautifully decorated and excellent company.

Looked amazing, the food was the best I have ever had at a Fine dinner.

So enjoyed the evening, the bar has certainly been raised.

From us:
It was a truly fantastic evening. You gently took over every practicality and logistic and took such extreme care of every detail that all we had left to do was to simply host. You perfectly understood the nature of the occasion and our responsibility to the various ages and dynamics of the group, that the result was one of resounding success that has certainly left wonderful memories for our leavers and their guests.

Nick was particularly pleased with the way the boys’ wine was handled. The boys themselves were thrilled with the way it all went and had a great time and, all this without any one of them having over indulged which is always a House Master’s worry!

We wish you all the best with the upcoming Knoll and West Acre Finds dinners, although they are in excellent hands, and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

Our thanks and best wishes to you all.

Hi Rebecca

It was a fantastic night! I have posted on your Facebook page an update but here is something else that I needed to add 

If you are in any doubt that you won’t have a fantastic evening using Chef In My Kitchen, then please don’t! Whilst you think the cost is above a normal restaurant – it is, but the food, service, customer experience is priceless. everything they did had a touch of class, the cutlery, plates, linen, glasses all added to the experience and when they left it was as if nothing had been used! My kitchen was spotless. From my initial enquiry with Rebecca (who was so patient with my endless questions!) to the final morsel of food being consumed the whole customer experience has been fantastic! Shokri is a God in the kitchen, how he managed to create such amazing food in MY kitchen is a mystery! Even when the oven kept blowing the electric he didn’t lose his cool and told me not to worry! Oven fixed he managed to create 7 courses to die for! Sophie was a beautiful waitress, very attentive and so professional – the table was like a picture from a top end society magazine, and the flowers and everything about the evening was superb. Both are a pleasure to have in your home, we felt that at the end of it we had made 2 new friends! It made a special birthday for my Mum into the perfect event and I cannot recommend CIMK highly enough to anyone who will listen and we will definitely book again.

… an experience second to none …the food not only tasted perfect, but was beautifully presented, and when Chef and Waiter finally left, they had left the kitchen spotless. If you think this is beyond the reach of your pocket – THINK AGAIN – it was incredibly good value…. it was PERFECT!

…an absolutely fantastic evening. Shokri made my dining room look like a 5 star restaurant, and served truly fabulous food… we were all treated like VIPs in my own home

Hi Emma, Just want to say a HUGE thankyou to your company for making my dads birthday so special! They had an amazing evening and said the food was spectacular! I will definately be using chef in my kitchen again.

Lisa

Just a quick note to thank you for how special you made us all feel on Sunday, it was a real pleasure to have you in my kitchen looking after us with the care and attention to details you gave us, to make sure that we were happy and our drinks were topped up.

Nothing was too much for you, and I can’t wait to have this sort of experience again.

Thank you so much once again.

Hi Emma, thanks for your email. I really don’t know where to start. Amazing, everything couldn’t have been more perfect. The wonders that came out of my kitchen no-one could quite believe!!!

To start the table just looked stunning. You were right to go for the white and crystal, and the table decorations were so ‘me’, with the candles, it really had the wow factor. I almost felt like i was getting married again!!!

Shokri, Sophie and Jack were great. Really friendly and fun, not to serious. Can i now apologise to them for my drunken state!!! Who knows what i was talking about!!!

And of course the food! Again, amazing! Everyone and i mean everyone said they couldn’t believe how good the beef was. To serve 22 people all at the same time, out of my tiny cooker, it was hot, it was cooked to perfection. Clean plates all round! The same for all the other courses. Really no complaints at all.

I couldn’t reccommend you more. A great team, and lovely people. Fabulous concept which we will definitely use again (once i have a new kitchen!!).

Thank you for my lovely flowers and for making my 40th defintely one to remember and I think everyone else will remember too.

Sally Goodland, Epping

I am writing to thank you and your team for the fantastic service that you provided on Friday and Saturday last week. The food, from hors d’oeuvres to dessert, was superb in every way. It is wonderful to find a chef who truly understands meat, even venison!

I cannot thank you enough for staying late into the early hours to clear up and set the breakfast table for my guests. There cannot be many chefs able to deliver superb food for 22 and 23 people on consecutive nights without a single lapse. Again many thanks for great food and superb service.
