Thank you”

“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

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.

On behalf of Julia & myself I just wanted to thank you both for a fantastic evening on Friday. Yves, your food was amazing, the quality, presentation and service were second to none. All our guests were highly complementary and said what a wonderful evening they had all had. So thank you both for all your efforts we will most certainly use you for future entertaining. Please also pass on our thanks to Noel who helped to make the evening a truly great one.

Stephen & Julia Lister, Ilkley, October 2018

Thank you Yves, Gosia and Anne for a superb dinner at ours last Saturday. Our guests were delighted with the delicious food and the service…. and as hosts, we could really relax and enjoy our party as well. 😉 doing business with French Chef at Home was a pleasure from the first contact and the cook was very accommodating to our guests’ dietary requirements.

Florence Van Schependom-Brown, Sheffield, November 2018

We loved the experience – thanks! Due to living in Paris now, I don’t know many people who live in the area any more, but I’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone who visits.

Charlie Smith, Leeds, November 2018

What a wonderful meal we had on Saturday. The children and partners had a wonderful evening and enjoyed every part of the meal. My son said it was better then the Box Tree in Ilkley. High praise indeed.I shall certainly recommend you to friends and find some excuse to have you come over again to cook for us.

Thank you again. A memorable evening and thank you for your patience with Yogi.

Thank you very much for visiting our vacation home in the Lake District to cook for us. Noel did a great job looking after us and the food was simply magnificent. A couple of our group said that the meal was one of the best they had ever had. We were very impressed overall with the quality and ease of the service you provided and would highly recommend you to others.

Thank you so much for creating the most amazing Finger Buffet on Saturday for our birthday party celebrations.

It was beautifully presented and it all tasted  so good.  You are a fantastic chef Yves,  and charmed us all too!

We all loved it.

We had a fun, happy day,  with no work for me, and finished off the party with music and dancing til about 8 pm !!

Thank you so much once again, it was a pleasure to meet you both, and hope we can do it again on another occasion

Thanks to Yves (and Noel) for making our recent uni friends reunion dinner in North Duffield
such a superb occasion. I don’t know how you produced such fantastic food with so little fuss in a strange kitchen! It was the highlight of our weekend and everyone loved the occasion, the food and the service. Thank you and we’ll definitely be speaking again!

David Little, North Duffield, May 2019

Thank you both so much, yesterday’s lunch was a great success. So many people said how delicious the food was and how attentive your staff were.

A huge hit all round.  It was so lovely for me to entertain so many people without lifting a finger – very spoiling !

Thank you both again.
