Ian Woodcock
We had a thoroughly wonderful evening. The food was delicious, and Ian was a delight to have at our home. He was friendly and very easy going. Ian prepared a great meal, and left our kitchen spotless at the end of the night. Having a recent newborn, eating in was a great option to celebrate my husbands 40th, we were able to relax and it all felt very special. Would not hesitate to recommend Ian to our friends. Thank you for a fantastic evening.

Ian was a consummate professional from the start. He emailed and phoned me prior to the dinner to ensure everything was as I wanted it. Ian was punctual and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for him, which certainly took all the pressure off me. This was the first of my parties that I have actually been able to relax and enjoy. He presented us with a fabulous dinner and the guests are still raving about it. He came with all the equipment he required, and left the kitchen in an amazingly clean state. I would highly recommend Ian Woodcock for your next dinner party. Could not fault him. Thanks so much Ian. Kind regards - Roslyn Purcell

Chef – Frederick Marechal

Brisbane Chef – Modern French

Frederick Marechal

Chef Frederick is very well versed in Classic French venues such as Belgium’s Romeyer and the 3 Michelin star La Pergola. He also became the Head Chef at the 3-Michelin star Le Bel Ombra in 1996 before taking the reins at the 3-Michelin star La Place as the Head Chef a couple of years later. In 2000, Frederick had the honour of being the Personal Chef to the French Consul-General in Monte Carlo where he served with distinction.

It’s pretty safe to say Fredrick can cook… This level of luxury in the form of a personal chef is something to behold.

Frederick's Recent Reviews

Frederick Marechal
Wow, what a night! Chef Frederick was absolutely amazing. Really pleasant to have in our home and the food was exceptional. Can't wait to do it again.

Hayley Bowen (QLD)

Frederick Marechal
The food couldn’t be faulted.

Jacquelyn (QLD)

Frederick Marechal
We had a chef and a waiter, Frederick and Rudy. However, Rudy was not just any waiter, he was definitely a fully fledged maitre d' and ran the evening with such finesse and smoothness that we felt we were in a 5 star restaurant. Frederick created such fine food it was absolute heaven to indulge and was 5 star as well! My husband was exceedingly grateful that Frederick was aware that he was in somebody's home and not on TV! They arrived on time, went about their business in a very professional manner, played the evening by ear and gave us the ultimate fine dining experience! The two of them also new each other's nuances and worked together like a well oiled machine. Both deserve such accolades and we received nothing but compliments about the experience. We'll done guys

The offered menus were all excellent and our selected menu surpassed expectations. We had a celebration dinner with a group of 14 and made adjustments to the menu that were readily agreed to and implemented by the team. The night went smoothly and we all just sat and enjoyed the meal and conversation without having to leave the table or worry about timing or serving drinks. A wonderful and special night with friends all made possible by Tanja and her team

Grant Titman (QLD)

Tanja Nixdorf
Was a very good experience and having done "at your table" 3 times now, Tanja was the best chef so far. Her server was also much better then the last two servers I have had.

Marcus (QLD)

Tanja Nixdorf
We were so happy with our evening, poor Tanja there were a few kitchen malfunctions, due to it being very new, and one of my pots not being compatible with the induction (even though it was sold as induction) anyway I digress....Tanja somehow overcame the difficulties and served us a beautiful meal, our guests were so impressed. Alex and Levi, the waiters that came with Tanja were a delight and nothing was too much trouble. Five stars all the way from us.

Amanda Lennon
We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon celebrating a birthday, eating brilliantly cooked food. A great way to entertain in the comfort of your own home, without the hassle of buying, cooking and serving food yourself. Our serves were very generous and Amanda did an amazing job in space she had to work. Everything was spotless in the kitchen when they left. You would never have known, a delicious 3 course lunch had been cooked and served.

I couldn't fault any part of the evening, the food was amazing, Skye our waitress was there to cater to every need and the overal experience was everything I was looking for. Jess came out and spoke to us about each course and gave me recommendations for wine pairing so we had the ' 5 star resturant' experience right at home. Also would like to mention Alison as My Perfect Party who came and styled the table. It was amazing, it really was perfect!

Lorenzo Depetris
Lorenzo and Juilana arrived very promptly and I have to say were an absolute delight to have in our home. They were both very courteous and accommodating and the night was an absolute success! Lorenzo's food was a hit and he was so capable and generous , and Juliana was such a sweet heart , it was a joy to meet them both. By dining with restaurant quality food and service in the comfort of your own home, the night was so relaxed and easy, its something I will definitely be doing again.
