Testimonials

 

We had the great pleasure of having Stefano cook for us on Saturday evening at our private 50th birthday dinner supported by his beautiful wife Jules. The food was outstanding, service impeccable; if you are staying in the area and are looking for a private chef then look no further, you won’t be disappointed.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to the both of you for the food you made for us and our guests at our wedding last Saturday. I’ve lost track of the amount of people who came to us and told us how good the food was (especially the lamb!). I got to try everything except the calamari (I’ve have to have it next time to cook it at The Frome Independent!!) and it was all fantastic.
Thanks again for all of your help. See you next time in Frome.

On behalf of everyone here at Hestercombe I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for helping feed our party-goers. The staff here are so often serving customers it was the perfect opportunity to enjoy watching someone else cook for a change! Your set up was really professional, worked perfectly with the surroundings and exactly what we all needed – delicious, freshly prepared food, an informal atmosphere and a super helpful and friendly team. We could tell you really take pride in the food you prepare and it showed – just perfect.
Thanks again and we’ll catch up soon with any ideas for future events.

JO STEVENSON, COMMUNICATIONS & MARKETING MANAGER, HESTERCOMBE GARDENS TRUST, OCTOBER 2016

Working with Stefano and Jules on our wedding was an absolute joy. They have the ability to cater for all parts of an event, which is rare particularity in the wedding market, meaning they could bring everything in at a very competitive price. For us they provided the most incredible Italian canapés, mouth-watering antipasti and finally the most authentic delicious Neopolitan pizzas, which are still being talked about as the best pizza our guests have ever eaten. Their calming approach on the day meant we could totally relax in the knowledge that everything was taken care of, I can’t recommend these guys enough and will be stalking them around food festivals for as long as they are making their food!

You left us amazed – our day was perfect!! You added to what had already been such a special day. So professional, easy to work with and a class act!! Feel free to use me/Fay/our wedding as a reference. You nailed it. Thank you very much from our honeymoon in Paris!

Just wanted to add – Fay and I would recommend these guys to anyone. It was absolutely faultless and helped make an incredible day even better! Jules and Stefano understood exactly what we wanted, couldn’t be more helpful and absolutely nailed it. Thank you so much!

We stayed at Ham Bottom for four days 17 – 20 June to celebrate our daughter’s 30th birthday and ordered a special meal for the Wednesday evening.

The food provided was perfect for a wide range of tastes and the portions were very generous – in fact, we had ‘left overs’ for our last evening while we watched England try to play football!

We would recommend your services to anyone wishing to enjoy a hassle-free delicious meal.

Many thanks for your very efficient service Stefano.

ALISON & JOHN HUNT, HAM BOTTOM

Our bread making and pasta workshop that Stefano organised for my husband’s 60th birthday was fantastic. The family age group ranged from 60-2 yrs and Stefano made the session fun and informative. He is so passionate about Italian food that you just want to eat it everyday!
Thank you Stefano!

Thanks to Stefano for Lunch in Cockercombe over two days this week. Superb Quality and just what was needed for our work off-site event. Great service and amazing food!

STEVEN PHILLIPS, SENIOR AREA MANAGER GBK

The feedback from all the family was extremely positive, with everyone thoroughly enjoying the meal.  Highlights were the Anti-pasta, with everyone saying that the choices were varied and plentiful, the lamb dish being a particular hit.  The Tiramisù was heavenly….

Thank you very much, service was excellent.

ALLISON DAVISON, BANBURY FAMILY OCCASION, THORNCOMBE/COCKERCOMBE

Friday night was a complete surprise for me. I was delighted to see Stefano as he always cooks with a smile on his face and I know that his food is always first class. He took so much care with the preparation, cooking and presentation. The result was a truly memorable 60th birthday party with my family. It was absolutely brilliant; it couldn’t have been better.

WICK’S FAMILY, SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY, WELLINGTON

The food Stef prepared for our family event this weekend was amazing. Where to start with the superlatives for each of the traditional italian dishes… sublime and delicious don’t do the tastes and textures justice.
Stef prepared a range of hot foods, salads, deserts and home made bread. Everyone came back for seconds and some even for thirds!!
Can’t recommend the food and service highly enough.
Check him out at various farmers’ markets or for your own events, you won’t be disappointed.

YVETTE LAMIDEY, TAUNTON

Fantastic food from Stefano yesterday at Arthur’s Christening and 1st Birthday party. Thank you so much, everybody loved the food and were very complimentary!!

CLARE & MALCOM CORRIGAN, TAUNTON

Your lasagna was BUONISSIMA !!! You have given us a reason to head to the Farmers market. Think next time you’ve got your tiramisù I might just have to treat myself (such a big portion and couldn’t possibly let any go to waste!).

ZOE VINALL, WELLINGTON

We had a great lunch today after visiting you at Burnham-on-Sea food fair. A selection of olives to start, followed by Spaghetti, with meatballs and sauce, and for dessert, tiramisù! The kids have big orange sauce smiles! Many thanks, Craig, Kerry, Ethan and Olivia
