As an ambitious and conscientious chef, my clients are everything to me. I strive to provide great food and the best possible service, all focused on your needs. This attention to detail has been rewarded with many satisfied diners and I am proud and pleased to present their comments below.
The very greatest pride of my career was to be given the opportunity and immense honour to prepare a three course luncheon for the Countess of Wessex, Sophie and her guests in 2014, along with her entourage of 12 security who ate alfresco!

★★★★★ Nina, I wanted to send you the photos from the weekend and to send a huge thank you for providing us with such an amazing 'chef at home' experience for my daughter’s hen party.
The food was outstanding and your attention to detail was first class.
All the girls said how impressed they were with the food, including the canapés. I could have eaten them all night! The fact that we hardly knew you were in the room with us! You were so professional.
I really can’t thank you enough for the whole experience 😀 Donna, Mother of the bride.
★★★★★ Nina, just a note to say a very special thank You for making my mother's eightieth birthday such a success! From initial contact, selecting a choice and fixing a date, all so smooth and delivery on the day was just amazing. Everyone without fail thoroughly enjoyed their meals which were just delicious, you blended in so seamlessly to the group as well which made it a real pleasure to have you there. You really did make the whole evening a success with both your professionalism and charm and of course divine food, thank you again very much. Steve and Debbie Cox.
★★★★★ Nina, I really cannot think of anything else that you could have improved on. The whole evening was 1st class, the food, the service and your professionalism. Thank you again for making my sister's birthday a perfect night. Lynne - Hampshire
★★★★★ Just wanted to thank you again for a fantastic meal. With us having a kitchen diner, you were extremely professional and were a joy to have around. All the guys were blown away with the food and the impeccably clean kitchen. Such a huge bonus to have enjoyed a fanatstic dinner party and wake up to a clean kitchen! Don't be surprised if we call on you again! Liza - Ogwell
★★★★★ We had a wonderful time in Devon, in part because of the absolutely delicious food that you made for us. I knew that you would be professional from looking at your website and menus, but you and the food were really exceptional. There was nothing that we would change and all 6 of us (who all have different tastes and preferences) agreed that every course was outstanding. Beyond the food, you were an absolute pleasure to have at the house. You made it all look so easy, and we were so impressed by your efficiency and professionalism. Thank you so much again. We hope to return next year, and if we do I shall most definitely be in touch. S. Nafissi - London
★★★★★ Nina, I am so glad that I found you online for my 50th Birthday Dinner with my best friends. The dishes you served were not only delicious but well presented and all in a kitchen unfamiliar to you which is truly a skill.
The canapés were totally fantastic - especially the 'devils on horseback'
I would recommend you every time! L.Strickland - Salisbury
★★★★★ A very big thank you for the FABULOUS lunch you prepared for us for my partner's 60th birthday.
From my first contact with you to establish you were available, through the selection of the menu and the provision of our lunch, you have been both friendly and professional.
All 8 diners were in full agreement that it was a wonderful day that was made all the more special, memorable and relaxing due to the hassle free provision of a superb lunch. M. Joynes - Somerset
★★★★★ Thank you for cooking such a super meal for me and my friends. It was a total surprise and I know everyone wants to send their thanks for making it a perfect evening.The food not only tasted delicious, but every course from the mouth watering dainty canapés to the colourful and zingy dessert looked appealing. We all agree that having a private chef is most certainly the way forward. Paula -Tiverton
★★★★★Just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed your catering for us in Cornwall at the Buddha beach house. I was very impressed at your professionalism and the way you just blended into the occasion, it was as if you were there but weren't if that makes any sense
The food was a treat and you even tidied up, that's normally my job !!! But I did not mind! Tim - Tiverton
★★★★★Thanks so much for your dinner on Sunday. Everyone was blown away by how good it was and creating a dairy-free vegetarian meal and we all really enjoyed your company too. R.Hart - Ilsington
★★★★★ On meeting Nina I immediately felt I was in a safe and capable pair of hands. We ate delicious, fresh, seasonal food even bringing fresh berries and vegetables from her garden. Thank you for bringing another dimension to our family weekend in Totnes, by being relaxed, cheerful and such a pleasure to be around. I will not hesitate to book you again. D. Hobden - London
★★★★★ Having Nina cook for my mother-in-law's 60th birthday weekend away really was the icing on the cake when we rented our beautiful cliff top villa in Devon. Nina arrived to set up and was so easy to have around, bringing everything with her she might need from plates to salt and pepper, making it a very relaxing experience. The food was absolutely fabulous including home made jellies and little extras that we hadn’t expected.
The kitchen was left exactly as she found it, plus some yummy left overs in the fridge to be enjoyed the next day. We’ll certainly be calling on her again! Becca - Bristol
★★★★★The quality of food and the standard of cooking was exceptional - what a truly amazing experience to mark such a wonderful occasion. Nina was wonderful, very professional but extremely friendly and very hospitable. She really made our night special and even made the children feel an important part of the evening. Our 3 year old Grandson had a poorly arm and to our amazement Nina personally took his food to him in bed! What a truly lovely chef!
Private comment: The only thing that could have made the evening better would be if Nina could have moved in for the week! C.Rathbone - Midlands
