Let the chef come to you.

The Cook in the North

Travelling personal chef serving homes and holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and Lancashire

I come to you
...and cook

Enjoy a freshly cooked meal in the comfort of your own home:

  • Lunch or dinner at home with friends
  • Holiday cottage arrival night
  • Celebrations and special occasions
  • A quiet romantic treat for two

YES to requests

Delicious irritant- and allergen-free cooking is my everyday speciality, including amazing wheat-free, grain-free and dairy-free dishes.

I cater for food intolerances. No more menu analysis and awkward interrogation in restaurants - I know exactly what's in every dish and cook from scratch to suit you.

Good ingredients
Good food

I have been cooking for over 20 years with seasonal, fresh - predominantly organic - ingredients to create tasty, honest meals.

Quality ingredients are sourced from local suppliers like:
Steep & Filter in Skipton • Wholesome Bee in Settle • Growing with Grace in Clapham • Nathan Brown Butchers in Barnoldswick • Riverford Organic Farmers, delivered from their local hub in Gisburn.

Book the Cook

A 2 to 3 hour cooking session at your property is typically £40 to £70, plus up to £7.50 per starter, £10 per main and £5 per dessert to cover ingredients.



Serving the North

I am based in Barnoldswick - near Skipton, on the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire - overlooking the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Just minutes from Settle, Clitheroe, Hebden Bridge and Ilkley. Within 1 hour of Manchester, Preston, Lancaster, Kendal and the Lancashire coast in the west, and Harrogate, Leeds and York in the east.
