At Jacqueline Wise Chef's, we source ingredients as locally, sustainably and ethically as possible. We relish working with fantastic local producers to bring you the very best produce Sussex and the surrounding areas has to offer.
Our prices start from £55pp based on 10 guests enjoying canapes, bread and three courses. We also offer luxury private dining experiences at home, for as few as two diners.
Our friendly and experienced chefs will cook your meal fresh on site, serve, clear and do all the washing up! As well as our sample menu on the link below, we also have a seasonal luxury menu, listed at the bottom of this page, or we can create something entirely unique.
Please contact us to book a bespoke menu consultation, we always love talking food!
We do not charge VAT and can accomodate all dietary requirements.
Spend your evening enjoying your guest's company, not washing up
Having a friendly and professional chef prepare your meal, serve, clear and wash up while you relax will mean you can enjoy your guests company, without the usual stress of entertaining. Just eat the food and drink the wine!
Everyone will be catered for, celiac, lactose free or vegan, no probem
Allergies and food intolerances can make eating out a nightmare, booking our service guarantees all your guests dietary requirements and tastes are catered for, with out any additional cost as we can prepare ahead with them in mind.
Create a 'sense of occasion' to be remembered
From Birthdays to Anniversaries and gatherings of family and friends, good food brings people together and makes them happy. Our chefs are specifically trained to make the host feel at ease that their event will be a success from the moment they arrive. Whether it be your first Private Dining Experience or one of many enjoyable times entertaining, we can bring the right level of engagement to the party and add that something extra - a truly personal service.
Private Dining is perfect for those with families or elderly guests
No need for a baby sitter when dining at home, we bring the restaurant to you. Elderly guests who may prefer the comfort of being at home, can also join in the fun too.
It can cost less than eating out
From parking and taxis, to baby sitters and expensive wine, eating out can be pricey. Spend your savings on fine wines instead!
