Staying in is the new going out

Gone are the days where having a chef for a dinner party was seen as extravagant. We have much less time these days and having a chef at home is much more mainstream than you may think. No matter what the occasion; special birthday, anniversary, hen party or a dinner party, Samphire and Steel can provide you with a solution, with quality food from local suppliers that are guaranteed to impress your guests.

Chef At Home

Fine Dining At Home

Why not get everyone to chip in and enjoy your homely intimate surroundings with fine dining, restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own home and you don’t even have to lift a finger! 

Enjoy spending time with your friends and family, instead of spending most of the night in the kitchen and you don’t even need to pay the expensive drink prices in the bar or pay for taxi’s (including standing around in the cold and rain waiting for one!).

We can create stunning and innovative canapes and buffets delivered to your door for you to serve at your convenience or have a chef come and create breakfasts, taster menus or or 3,4 or 5 courses meal serviced to you and your guests on the morning / evening and can even do a theme if required right in the intimacy and comfort of your own home.

Spend Time With Friends & Family

Simply tell us your budget, occasion and number of people and you can have as much (or as little!) input into the menu without having to do any of the planning, shopping, preparing, cooking or serving, leaving you to enjoy the night and spend quality time with your friends and family.

Minimum of 10 people required for the chef at home service at a minimum cost of £30 per head

Chef At Home


Whether a mass catering event on a fundraising budget or a fine dining experience for a small party, Simon will apply the same level of creativity and inject passion into everything he does. I booked him as a private chef for a family birthday and I couldn’t have been happier. I would recommend Simon to anyone looking for top quality food with a refreshingly friendly approach.

I have used Simon and his team on a number of occasions for dinner parties for up to 20 of my friends and family, as well as a breakfast for 15 of my friends after a house party. I know that I’m in capable hands with Simon – his friendly but professional composure makes it so easy to work with him. He organises everything from an innovative and exciting menu to the incredibly presented dishes on the day which create a wow factor using quality food sourced from local producers. Restaurant quality in the comfort of my own home is a major plus for me. I’m free to enjoy myself with my friends and family instead of being in the kitchen!  He arrived at my house with all the ingredients and equipment to prepare the meal and he even clears the table and cleans the kitchen – whats not to like?
