Group bookings away are always fun. Whether it’s a celebration with family and friends, a Hen Party or a corporate trip away for your team, they are a fantastic opportunity to bring people together and Somerset is always a fantastic location. Once you’ve got your dates and venue sorted, it’s time to think through how you’re going to fill your the time and the big one… food.
Food is an incredibly important factor. No matter the reason for your trip, meal times provide an opportunity to socialise and it’s even better when the food itself tastes amazing. But organising the food side of things can also feel like a mammoth task. From delegating jobs when group cooking, factoring in multiple dietary requirements or the dreaded tidying up afterwards, ensuring everyone is happy with the food options can feel like a minefield. This is where a private chef can be the perfect option for your Somerset trip and here’s why.
As the chief organiser or host of the trip, you deserve a break too! Bringing in catering or a private chef, gives you the opportunity to also enjoy yourself and socialise without worrying about cooking or (importantly!) clearing up.
2. Quality food
Who can say no to restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own home? Private chefs work incredibly hard to create stand out menus and gorgeous food, often using local Somerset produce and the best ingredients. What is more, having a private chef also ensures the food arrives beautifully presented, on time and ready to eat creating a really lovely experience for you and your guests.
3. Cost effective
It’s a common misconception that private chefs are only reserved for the wealthiest groups, but the reality is far from this. Private chefs not only take charge of the cooking and serving of the food but also the meal planning and grocery shopping and do so far more budget efficiently than if you were to do it all yourself. If you’re splitting the bill across the whole group, it can quickly become the most cost effective catering option.
4. Perfect catering for your trip
Make the food a stand out part of your trip away. Whether it’s afternoon tea, a BBQ, hog roast or 6 course dinner party, you can ensure that meal times fit the requirements of your trip and it’s guests.
