When in paradise…refuse to waste a minute doing what you could at home and spend every second enjoying your family and friends in the comfort of your villa.

Whether you would like me to take care of all your meals, shopping and supplies, or just have a few nights off from cooking during your holiday, I can help.

A personalised and totally customisable service of personal chef and special occasion catering using the very best local and seasonal products. Whether you wish to enjoy a meal in the peaceful surroundings of your villa, entertain friends or celebrate a special occasion, you can relax knowing all your catering needs will be met.

The full service villa catering option covers collaborating with you to put together the menu options for your meals, the chef coming to your villa with all the ingredients to create a meal to remember, during which you can relax and enjoy the company of your family and friends, knowing that afterwards there will be no dishes to wash and the kitchen will be left immaculate.

The meals are completely tailored to your wishes, ranging from portuguese specialities such as whole roast suckling pig, garnished and decorated seafood platters showcasing the local lobster, crab, clams and percebes, fine international dining, casual barbeques and tapas, to catering for smaller wedding parties and canapes for drinks parties.

Any special dietary needs, for example gluten or dairy free, vegetarian and vegan are all taken into consideration during the menu planning stage. The style is generally modern mediterranean, with some thai and middle eastern fusion.

The starting price for a full service 3 course dinner including couvert (bread, butter, olives, algarvian carrots) and a cut fruit platter is €40 per head. (adults) This includes all food, preparation, laying the table, plated table service and leaving the areas used clean and tidy.

Delivery food is also available which could be alternated with the full service option,  to reheat and serve at your convenience, and also a full range of bakery goods and cakes.
