I am an Alumni of Le Cordon Bleu London and have been dedicated to the world of food industry for over 10 years with experience in catering, events such as 'BBC Good Food Show' and I am now really enthusiastic about being a private chef.
Born in Madrid, I discovered my passion in traditional home cooking as a child, always being the little helper to my mother and grandmother whom to this date, I consider the best cooks!
Spending summers in the seaside town of Valencia and working in the family restaurant, I attained a culinary school degree in Madrid, whilst gaining experience in catering and events.
Wanting to discover the traditional Italian cuisine, I went to Vicenza (North Italy) and studied at the University of Taste where I met my fiancé. We later decided to pursue a professional career together in London by working as chefs at restaurants and attending Cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu.
I specialised in handmade fresh pasta at "La vecchia scuola bolognese" (the old Bolognese school in Bologna, Italy)
Here, I discovered my true passion for being private chef, focusing on traditional and modern Spanish, Italian and French food culture, using exquisite hand picked ingredients.
Absolutely fantastic all round. Simple communication, delicious food and wholly professional. The truffle pasta was amazing ! Very much looking forward to working with Elia again.
Great menu, lots of flavour. Elia is super efficient - the kitchen is Cleaner than when she arrived! We had a great dinner - highly recommended
Exceptional. As a co-host I was very impressed with Elia's organizational and communication skills, which was a delightful bonus on top of her phenomenal cooking. Her passion for cooking and making people happy shined through and made the dinner so much more than just a delicious dinner. I highly recommend her and would very much like to book her again.
Elia is very efficient and talented. Presentation and taste is superb.
She deliver far more than our expectation. Exceptional value for money.
Each dishes are beautifully presented to the eyes and delicious to the mouths. As she served generous portion for everyone, by the end of the dinner, our stomachs were really full! Still we could taste her elegant dessert.
She is professional, diligent and at the same time very friendly. The atmosphere was just the best one for home party.
Thank you, Elia and I hope to enjoy your food again!
She was very lovely and friendly chef also has a great passion on her cooking!
All foods were amazing also she cook extra in case its not enough.
Such a thoughtful service!
We had a great night with her cooking :)
Delightful chef, and wonderful food. All my guests commented how much they enjoyed the food and the ambiance that she very much helped to create. Definitely recommend her for any size or type of event.
Elia was absolutely amazing! We hired Elia to help celebrate my parents anniversary and were not disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious and she was incredibly efficient, friendly and wonderful throughout. Would most definitely recommend and look to have her again! Thank you so much for joining us.
We could not be more pleased about our booking. Elia’s dinner was delicious: the truffle raviolis were bursting with flavours, the melt-in-the-mouth slow-cooked beef main course was excellent and we chose tiramisu for dessert, which was perfect. Elia was professional, super helpful, with a big friendly smile throughout the evening. She tidied everything up afterwards, leaving the kitchen pristine and making us wish she could be here every day! Definitely recommend.
Elia is excellent, highly recommended.
