Shaun cooked the most incredible meal for my husband’s 40th birthday this weekend.

Fantastic service too. Can’t recommend highly enough!

We will definitely be planning more dinner parties in the future.

Shaun prepared a fantastic meal which was a real highlight of our family celebration weekend. The food was delicious and Shaun was a lovely friendly guest, who left the kitchen spotless!

We had a fabulous family dinner with Shaun. The tapas feast was a perfect way for us to share delicious food as well as each other’s company. Shaun was attentive to every need - even preparing a separate meal for the kids.

We couldn’t possibly recommend him more highly - 11/10.

Can’t wait to get back to Yorkshire and hire him again.

Amazing! Shaun catered for 23 guests at a pre race day party I hosted last weekend. The food was delicious, there was plenty of it and it was all presented amazingly! Shaun cleared up after and left the kitchen spotless.

Would definitely use again.

We absolutely loved our meal, all of the food was absolutely delicious and it was such a treat to be able to try so many different dishes with it being a tapas style dinner, thanks so much for a lovely evening!

Thanks again for the amazing food! (everyone is mentioning how nice it was). A pity you are not based in Switzerland.
Plus this was basically the first time my sister was able to eat everything from her plate without having to worry about her IBS. We are very grateful how you were able to cater for her.

Shaun (aka The Cook in the North) did a fantastic job of catering for my husband’s 50th.

The menu was perfect for the occasion and Shaun took all the stress out of the evening. He was very professional but still happy to chat to guests, take photos and just slotted in - working quietly away in our open plan kitchen without at any point making it feel like the cooking and food prep was the main focus - until the point when he served the food (as a buffet style) when everyone’s attention was fully on the delicious - and beautifully presented - spread of food.

Shaun left the kitchen looking immaculate (having washed all the crockery), meaning we could just focus on the celebrations. Even though I love cooking and entertaining, it was so lovely to have the evening off.

I would highly recommend The Cook in the North for any special occasion.

We asked Shaun to cater for 16 people at the farmhouse we had rented for our friend's hen do. Shaun was professional, communicative and easy to work with to agree on budget, dishes and overall experience.

The food was lovely and beautifully presented, and we really valued his approach to home grown or locally sourced, seasonal tasty and nutritious meals, and being so accommodating to dietary needs and menu choices.

Shaun presented the menu to us at the beginning of the meal, was focussed throughout the cook but happy to chat when we passed through the kitchen, and was kind enough to spend a few minutes with the party to have some pictures and be thanked!

Would highly recommend Shaun for a large group to take the pressure off and enjoy the evening - and he left the kitchen spotless!!

What a brilliant night!
Shaun came to cook for us as we celebrated a 70th birthday. Communication was great, he was well organised, professional and the food was truly delicious. We were really impressed and will definitely use Shaun again in the future. Thank you from all of us! 🙂

We booked Shaun for a hen do in Lancashire and he cooked an amazing tapas feast for us.

Beautiful and delicious food and very neat and tidy afterwards!

Definitely recommend.

We booked Shaun for a family dinner at a cottage we were staying at in Yorkshire. He managed with the rustic kitchen no problem. He cooked a terrific meal which everyone thoroughly enjoyed, and we had a great time getting to know him and learning all about his culinary journey. Thoroughly recommend.

An absolutely superb chef to help us celebrate our special event in the Yorkshire Dales. The smells of the 3 course menu were spectacular. Every one of the 10 guests dining have continued to sing the praises of Shaun and his cooking. Thank you Shaun once again! We would certainly all recommend you!

Shaun came in and cooked for a 50th birthday party where one of the party was gluten free and dairy free. We had a beautiful 3 course meal, flavours were delicious and all ingredients were top quality. Shaun was great with all the organisation... he is friendly, diligently works in the background and left a very tidy kitchen. Would highly recommend.
