EHO CHEF IS A COMMUNITY OF FOOD LOVERS ACROSS LONDON.

THE TIME HAS COME

The last 30 years new restaurants have been sprouting everywhere in London and eating out has become increasingly affordable and easy. So much so that it seems Londoners have abandoned home dining altogether. But what if there were a way to entertain friends and family in the comfort of your own home, hassle-free, with restaurant-quality food?

CONNECTING FOODIES WITH FOOD ARTISTS

eho chef connects diners with chefs, to create tailor-made culinary and social experiences for any occasion, whether a special celebration or informal get-together. Our eho chef's are skilled homemakers, accomplished amateurs and seasoned professionals. Each chef bring their special story that takes you on a culinary journey, interacting as much or as less as you'd like with you and your guests. A meal can be so much more than simply a time to eat; it's a nourishing rejuvenating entertaining experience that can even include a bar service or cooking demonstration.

ACCESSIBLE TREAT

eho chef believes that home dining should be available to all, for any event, large or small. Our three-course menus start at just £30 per head and our eho chefs are happy to come to cook in any kitchen in the home or office.

IT'S SUPER SIMPLE

Booking an eho chef is easy: browse our chefs and menus, request, then pay. We are available at any time to answer any questions you might have.
