"It gives us precious time together, at the end of the day, no shopping, no cooking, no cleaning!. For us it's a refreshing break. We can afford the cost, it's about the same as people are spending on an evening in a restaurant but without the hassle."

Richard Murphy – London

"We employed our Private Chef from Galor for the month of August. We were 6 adults and 6 children to cook for. I found Tanya to not only to be a fantastic, imaginative and hardworking chef but she contributed far more than just that to our holiday experience. Everybody loved her, her sense of humour and smile are already missed! It is obvious Tanya loves what she does and takes great pride in all aspects of her work. We experienced the most delicious lunches, BBQs and 3 course suppers. For the whole month we only ate out 3 times because Tanya's cooking far outdid the restaurants in our area and there were some top ones nearby. Every night our table was laid out like our own private restaurant with thoughtful touches, it was magical. The food was superb and if we had any special requests Tanya was always happy to oblige. We had a few nights where we had some important people staying and Tanya never disappointed. The starters and mains were of an incredibly high standard and the puddings were light but so tasty, just perfect.

We had a house filled with young children and Tanya was amazing with them. Her food for the kids was spot on and she made meal times fun, often helping the nannies to make the children's mealtime more enjoyable. My children adored her. Tanya kept her calm, was never stressed, had a very cheery temperament and got on with everybody. I would highly recommend the service and we would certainly use it again."

Belinda Delucy - London

"I was extremely impressed with the personal and very efficient service I received from Galor. I asked them to find me a temporary chef to take with us to our home in Spain, as we were having our whole family staying with us. I gave them very little notice. Within one or two days I had received the CV's of two very suitable chefs. I chose the first, and we couldn't have been happier with him. Galor took the trouble to find out from me exactly what I was looking for so that they could best find me the right person. Consequently, our chef was perfect for our requirements.
I would highly recommend Galor; they are friendly, professional and answered almost immediately any queries that I had."

Pearl Aaronson - Hampstead, London

"Thank you so much for the wonderful Chef Services that you provided. We are enjoying amazing weekly meals and the kids are delighted that they are getting involved with the weekly menu planning of the chef. As a family we now have time to share our days stories together around the table. As a busy mother this has been the perfect solution for my busy schedule. Thanks Galor."

Emily Houson - Chelsea, London

Annette Levey

"Thank you so much to Galor, we were so impressed with the fast response to find a chef for Christmas day at very late notice (November). We were put in touch with Borges who was very friendly, efficient and served us the most delicious Christmas Day Lunch. It was great to not have the stress of shopping for the food and preparing and we were able to enjoy a very restful Christmas Day.I would highly recommend the services of Galor and will definitely use them again."

"Simon did a great job!. Thanks so much for arranging everything. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed delicious food."

Jennifer Kersis Baker

"Galor’s recommended chef Simon catered and cooked for our September wedding in a private villa on the Greek island of Crete. He also cooked for us, family and friends at our villa during the week... We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! From menu planning and procuring the food to the actual day, Simon was super friendly, helpful and professional. He made everything easy and stress-free. Most importantly the food was exceptional and beautifully presented – the most frequent comment on our wedding night from our guests was, “Oh my God, the lamb is amazing!!” we have attended many weddings where the food was nice, but nothing special. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, I would highly recommend Galor private chef services."

"The food was brilliant! Our friends were all raving about it. A number of people at our parties have asked where we get the chefs from and I have given them your contact details. One of them was going to contact you about catering for a larger event. Our next one will be in April. I will contact you once I have a date."

Geoff Andrew - Chief Executive Officer

"We were very pleased with Josh. I can’t say enough good things about him. He was flexible on our changing menu, and always willing to adapt. He was friendly and very professional. We had a wide menu and everything he cooked was wonderful. He was timely on arriving, good company while cooking, and quick and discreet at cleaning up and leaving. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone who asked, and I greatly appreciate the referral you made. Our Christmas dinner was a wonderful event of family and friends, and you helped to make that possible. Thank you."

"Tanya is an exemplary chef and a pleasure to work with. She was most polite, calm and efficient and her cooking was superb.I'm so pleased with Galor Personal Chef Service, they were able to accommodate a very last minute request for our first wedding anniversary. Based on an impressive CV, I was delighted to find out Tanya was available. I gave her carte blanche for the menu…which turned out to be the best decision as our meal was simply amazing, not to mention Tanya's lovely personality. We've set the bar high on our first wedding anniversary, I don't' know how we'll top it next year!Thank you all for your fabulous service!."

Kris Harley-Jesson

"What a wonderful and thoroughly professional service from Galor! I had the idea of a romantic home cooked meal as an anniversary treat and found galor through a web search. Their website looks very impressive and from the point of contacting Galor the process was smooth and painless..especially useful as I was trying to arrange this whilst working long days during the week.

Galor contacted me within a day of my email and I had a discussion on the phone with regards to my requirements. They put in me touch with Steve and sent me his full CV and cost breakdown by email. Steve spoke to me on the phone a few days later and came up with a mouth watering 3 course menu after discussing various options based on our likes and dislikes.

On the day Steve arrived punctually and brought all the ingredients ready to prepare the meal in our kitchen. I showed him the basic areas locations of plates and cutlery and he laid the table perfectly for us before serving us a sumptuous 3 course meal which was astounding. He even helped pick out the perfect complimentary wine from our own selection in the house. My wife and I were blown away with this fine dining experience served al fresco in our own garden on a summer evening. Steve's attention to detail in taste and presentation was superb (as expected from his CV). He brought each course to us and removed our plates also as we finished each course. The kitchen was left absolutely spotless and we were both left feeling pampered and relaxed as if we had spent the evening in a spa. An amazing experience from beginning to end and we hope to use this service again!."

Please pass on our thanks to Galor."

"Thank you very much - the food was amazing and chef was very great."

Anna Nosenko

Hi Yuda, just a quick note to thank Steve and Gloria for a wonderful evening. They were both very friendly and very professional. The menu choices made were fantastic and it made it hard to choose from and satisfy 13 people. I have to say the final choice did not disappoint. Gloria worked her socks off all night keeping everyone topped up with food and drink and kept a smile on her face. A lovely lovely evening my wife was lost for words (which is unusual) Thanks again and hope to see you soon."

Stuart Morris - Director 

"Staff were friendly and accommodating to our needs. Quick service and ultimately the recommended chef delivered an interesting session on maximising value out of family shopping, with plenty of practical advice."

Annette Jezierska - Waste & Recycling Officer Westminster City Council

Galor, thank you so much for providing such a great service. Must admit was a bit of a daunting prospect arranging a surprise 50th celebration and the responsibility of finding a chef! However, you provided professional advice and assistance when arranging, and your chef recommendations were great. Ben did a fabulous meal for us, cooked to perfection and handled 8 middle aged women with ease. The quality of the food was fabulous and the kitchen cleared up and all we had to do was enjoy our evening. Thanks for making our surprise celebrations go with such ease. Look forward to working with you again."
