Max P.'s review on Feb 18, 2021

Simone cooked my partner and I an absolutely delicious Omakase meal for Valentines Day. I first contacted Simone a couple of days before and he was incredibly responsive to my messages. Together, we crafted the perfect menu; Simone taking the lead on the choices, but under a very vague direction from myself. On the day, Simone was a perfect gentleman, arriving on time, asking what our preferences were for communication, and beginning to cook the most delicious meal we've ever had. Simone was polite, charming, and encouraged us to be honest with him about the meal. I would highly recommend hiring Simone and enjoying the wonders of the meal he cooks. He does both a regular, standard Omakase menu (which he also adds his own twist) or a Japanese menu inspired by the mediterranean, which is where he is from. I look forward to choosing that next time we hire him! Thank you, Simone.

Simone was the ultimate professional, a pleasure to have in the house and most of all his food exceeded all expectations. The red prawn risotto was the tastiest I’ve had

Deepan T.'s review on Nov 12, 2020

I hired Simone as a private chef for the evening I proposed to my girlfriend. In the weeks prior, I was very impressed with his quick replies. And as for dinner, he did not disappoint at all! I made a couple of requests to him regarding the menu and he did that no problem. The quality of the food was great and in particular his chicken teriyaki was our favourite! He cleaned up our kitchen very thoroughly afterwards as well. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

Rachel R.'s review on Jul 22, 2020

Simone is a truly talented and professional chef. He made the whole process so simple. He responded to me promptly after putting out my request and created bespoke menus that catered to my criteria that I could choose from. He kept in constant communication with me from the time of booking to the actual day. On the actual day, the food was beyond expectations. He created dishes that were both aesthetically pleasing and flavourful. Our favourite was the sea bass carpaccio!! He made cooking an experience and invited us to watch him make the sushi as well as some tricks with fire. The food portions were great and he created lots of different types of sushi for us to try. We enjoyed the different flavours he experimented with for the sushi too. To top it all off, he left the kitchen spotless which was an added bonus! Simone was also very personable and friendly. I would say that Simone was 10/10 and would fully recommend him!! Thank you Simone for making our event so memorable!

Valerio S.'s review on Mar 30, 2020

Hired Simone as a private chef for a birthday party. Quick and helpful responses and also suggested dishes to present that stuck within the budget. He turned up punctual on the day and the service was great- the party was a hit without a glitch. The food was very good and I would re-hire him again if the occasion arises again.

Rachel Y.'s review on Mar 25, 2020

Hired Simone as private chef for an intimate gathering with friends and I cannot recommend him enough. Everything was so simple with him; quick responses to all my questions, kept everything tidy, gave me handy cooking tips as well. But the one thing I would like to highlight was his culinary skills. The food was a fusion between traditional Italian with a Japanese twist, given Simone was a professional chef in one of the top Japanese restaurant in London; the macha pannacotta was a classic example of this. My friends and I were very impressed. Wish I have cooking talent like Simone! A solid 10/10 from me! Grazie mille Simone.

Ilenia S.'s review on Mar 25, 2020

I did the sushi making classes and I had a fantastic time! Chef Simone is very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. He gives lots of insight into techniques and how to make the perfect sushi. The classes are really educational, inclusive and easy. I can't recommend Simone enough if you want to make something special to enjoy, experience and to wow your guests. Definitely recommend it!

Chef Simone cooked a delicious meal for a small family gathering. The food was incredibly tasting and amazingly presented! All my guests truly enjoyed it. Simone has been very professional throughout, plenty of suggestions in helping me choosing the perfect menu for the evening. I would definitely call him again

Kumar K.'s review on Mar 20, 2020

Incredible Simone, very talented and professional. it's been a fantastic night: the food was top quality (seriously, TOP quality!) and he has such a wide cultural background, he's able to give any recipe a new meaning. I don't know how to spell it, but, among other dishes, he cooked us an Italian pasta dish that was amazing. It's as if he knows the chemistry of food and knows how to create the perfect dish. We were curious to know more, so we asked him and he explained us the dishes, almost like a lecture on ingredients and cooking, but it felt like poetry! Oh and pastries... we've been to Italy a couple of times, also to Paris etc., but the fresh flavour of Simone's pastries was a totally new experience. Blown away.. Grazie tanti Simone!

Meet Simone

I am a Professional Chef with over 12 years of experience and I worked in a large variety of restaurants, catering, hotels, and private houses across different nations. My career starts in Italy where I was born and where I actually matured this passion and a deep interest in food and human nutrition. I traveled to many countries to discover and study ingredients, techniques, and recipes. Today I am capable to put together Italian, French, Japanese, Asian, Middle East cuisine. Japanese cuisine is probably the biggest influence in my style of cooking and projecting a meal. Also, I love pastry and I enjoy making fresh products from scratch. That is why today I am offering all my time for the private sector. I have always been inspired by teaching people how to cook. Also, I enjoy cooking myself for everyone in needs of specific meals and dietary requests.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
All my services are tailored individually and they are very flexible. I offer different types of services, it can be a formal work lunch or an easygoing dinner party. Also I organise teaching classes for small groups or for one person only. Sometime I can be asked to create a specific diet for a person or for a family with food intolerances, and so I can be present for a period of time with them as a Personal Chef.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I like to hear from customer and listen to what they are really looking for. After that I study a plan tailored for them and I come back with a schedule to achieve the original idea.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I became a Chef after studying at University. I attended academic cooking and pastry courses and I travelled many countries before being able to offer what I do today. My studies in human biology also allowed me to have a deep understanding of nutrition and food composition.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Be sure to discuss accurately your needs, and don't hesitate to ask.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Be ready to know what your expectations are and why in the first place you are looking for a Professional. Also be ready to let the pro guide you towards the choices you are going to make!
What are some good examples of past customers?
I had very enjoyable experiences cooking for individuals and families. Also I found myself comfortable when it comes to plan a private dinner event or a special occasion.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
I can think about two projects. First one was about a cooking class for a family that wanted to make sushi at home, and they were able to make it by themselves only after 5 hours. The second one was about creating a weekly diet combination of nutrients for a professional sportive person, something very specific for his activity and life style. We spent one week together to deeply understand the best possible solution. Great result then.
How did you first get into this line of work?
After many years working in the best venues as a Chef I decided to dedicate all my time in the private sector. I soon realised how rewarding this activity is in terms of personal growth.

Style of cooking varies with Oriental cuisine being the dominant cuisine. I have trained in the UK, therefore am able to cook European dishes. I was a head of pastry chef in The Shard. I love to experiment with flavour and different type of foods. But also love the classics. I can adapt to dietary
