“We have been fortunate to experience Yves’ cooking, and every one has been truly memorable. It is not only stunning to look at, it is packed full of sensational and seasonal flavours while remaining authentically and recognisably part of the great French tradition. Yves and Anne are also wonderful hosts and the experience feels like a personal invitation to the private dinning table of a top-level chef”

Rob and Lucy, Harrogate

“We have been lucky enough to have experienced Yves cooking not only in his own home but in ours too…
Each occasion has been different in its presentation and content as well as consistent in quality, taste and variation… it never disappoints and we have been introduced to French cuisine both modern and traditional… all absolutely sublime!

Hard to choose, but one occasion in particular was when we arranged a ‘meal at home’ for a Valentines dinner… hors d’oeuvres… fantastic both in variety and flavour. Starters were delicious and eased us into the delights to follow. The main courses just excelled… the combination of tastes and textures was absolutely stunning, with desserts of fitting standard to finish. What a great decision we made, and we feel passionately that everyone should try ‘The French Chef at Home'”

Jane Hunter, Knaresborough

“French Chef at Home made our drinks party last Friday, the food they created was amazing; tasty, different and lovely to look at. Anne and Yves are also a pleasure to have in your home, they make things easy! I would highly recommend them for all your food entertaining needs.”

Sandra Wiggins, Harrogate

Just a quick note to say a big ‘Merci Beaucoup’ for a wonderful meal last night. Yves did a fantastic job and all of us enjoyed the food immensely. And the kitchen was so tidy afterwards – such a treat!

Marina Briggs, Gilling West


Thank you for the most delicious dinner on the 29th.  It really was wonderful and everyone enjoyed the food tremendously.  I will certainly be in touch in the future.

Bearnie, Ripon

I was lucky enough to have ‘French Chef at Home’ cater for my 40th birthday dinner. The food was absolutely sensational – the highlights, to name a few, being the Roasted Angus Beef with chestnuts and the Louis XV dessert with home made ice cream… It was great fun to have Yves and his colleague Noel around and we were all amazed at the way they just turned up and fitted in. Behind the scenes, Anne was enormously helpful and patient as we refined the menu. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this fabulous team for any special event.

Daisy Johnson, Bingley

Was very impressed by Yves. I have munched my way across large parts of Europe in some very well regarded eating houses, and his efforts compare very favourably with the best. He certainly deserves to succeed in his venture.

John Chamberlain, Harrogate

We just wanted to say a HUGE THANK- YOU to Yves for amazing food on NYE.  Everyone loved it, made the evening so special.  Gilly, also was excellent and made the dinner flow so easily………
We’ll definitely recommend!

Jo-Anne, Leeds

Just a quick note to thank Yves for a splendid meal last night. We had pretty high expectations but they were surpassed by a long way.
Everything was excellent. We loved everything but the main course and dessert were especially nice.
We appreciated the chance to take the meal at our own pace and it’s a real treat to come back into a clean kitchen with no washing up.
Our guests were very impressed too and I shall be telling all my colleagues at work in Leeds.
Best wishes for a Joyeaux Noel.
