Welcome to Normandy Kitchen.

I am a fully qualified chef based in Kent having gained a full term diploma with Leith’s School of Food & Wine. I have worked all over Europe, cooking for all sorts of people from all walks of life, including the Countess of Florence. I can add Lyon, Brittany, Nantes and London to my profile. I am fully trained in the French classics.

I am passionate about food and everything to do with it. I believe that good food should be available to everybody and not just for the discerning. I sell my food and my services at realistic prices and you pay for the food and the service, not my expertise.

I share that passion by offering a catering service that takes advantage of all the wonderful food usually associated with France. I know where the best markets are and where to find the freshest possible fish and seafood. I know where to buy my fresh meat and my locally produced sausages. I know where the private cheese makers are and the farmer who makes the local cider and calvados. I’ve tried them all and I’ve sourced the best.

I have a certificate in Intermediary Health & Hygiene and I am fully aware of food allergies and intolerances.

Private Dining

As a special birthday or anniversary treat, I can come to your home and cook a meal for your loved one or your parents or anybody else you can think of. It’s not as expensive as you might think and will probably cost you the same as going out for a meal, the difference is that neither of you have to drive, you can choose your own music to listen to and you have the privacy of your own home. I shall leave your kitchen as I found it and I shall slip out of the door during dessert, to leave you to enjoy the rest of your evening in private. I’ll even bring the wine, if you so wish, at cost price.

Hoiday Catering

I can deliver welcome meals, special in-house meals for birthdays and anniversaries, or just a meal delivered to your gite for your guests to enjoy in the comfort of their own surroundings. For a special treat I can come to the gite and cook a very special meal of your choice.

Holiday Cookery Lessons

can come to your gite or home and give you and your group a cookery lesson of your choice. You just tell me what you have always wanted to learn how to cook properly and I shall teach you.

Everyone has a favourite dinner and many would love to know how to cook it properly. I can help you cook that meal and bring it to it’s full potential. For fish lovers we can filet our own fish, make our own fish stock, produce the best ever sauce and cook the fish to perfection. For chicken lovers we can buy a whole chicken, cut up into 8 pieces and make the most wonderful chicken normande with cider and cream.

Perhaps pasta is your thing. You can get stuck in and make your own pasta and play around with different shapes. You can make your own filling for ravioli or make your own spaghetti and we’ll make meatballs to go with them. This is a great lesson for children, as it’s enormous fun.

Or maybe you just want to learn at least two fabulous dinners for dinner parties. I can teach you how to do them step by step and give you the confidence to do this on your own at home. A wonderful present for the ladies while the men go off fishing or whatever is their fancy.
