The Cook in the North

Shaun Nixon

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

At home in your kitchen

I have been cooking for 20+ years, using seasonal, fresh - predominantly organic - ingredients to create over 20,000 tasty, honest meals. Ingredients are sourced from local shops like Steep & Filter in Skipton, Wholesome Bee in Settle, Nathan Brown Butchers in Barnoldswick and Riverford Organic deliveries from Gisburn.

YES to food intolerances!

Delicious allergen-free cooking is my speciality, including amazing wheat-free, grain-free and dairy-free dishes. No more menu analysis and awkward interrogation in restaurants - I know exactly what's in every dish and cook from scratch to suit you.

Book a meal

A 2 to 3 hour cooking session at your property is typically £60 to £100, plus £7.50 per starter, £10 per main and £5 per dessert.
