About Book a Cook

Book a Cook has been finding cooks and chefs for private homes for 30 years.

I took over Book a Cook at the beginning of 2021. I have always had a passion for food and cooking and went to Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland after university for a more formal training. I have worked in full time roles within households, as a cook in an office for 50 people and as a freelance chef in the UK and abroad. With all this experience under my belt, I am excited to be able to help both clients and cooks when finding the right person to work in your home.
