Sonali shah FOOd
Private Chef, Food Styling Assistant & Recipe Developer
After graduating from The University of Birmingham, I went on to study for a Diploma at the prestigious Leiths School of Food and Wine. My private clients have included Hollywood A-listers, major fashion labels, Premier League footballers and British royalty. I have experience in recipe development, food styling, home economy and food consultancy.
Private Dining & Events
Private parties & small scale events. These include sit-down dinners, buffet-style meals, canapé parties and grazing tables. I can either provide these with full service or as a drop off option. If you choose full service, I will cook a bespoke menu for your event, serve and then leave the kitchen spotless for you to continue your evening. Wine pairing available.
I have assisted a variety of highly respected food stylists in editorial (magazine and cookbooks), advertorial and video too. I also do some food styling myself too, examples of which can be seen above.
RECIPE WRITING & Consulting
I have a wealth of experience in recipe writing and development.
If you're a restaurant that needs a menu refresh or a budding street food concept looking to get started, I can also help you develop the food that best reflects you!
Weddings, birthdays, baby showers – you name it, we can do it! I have a whole list of flavour combinations for you to choose from and will work with you to bring your vision to life
Whether you are a total beginner or an amateur chef looking to hone your skills, these private classes are perfect. I provide all the ingredients for the recipes and teach you in the comfort of your home, making sure you'll be able to recreate the dishes.
(Gift Vouchers available too – these classes make perfect presents for birthdays, engagements and weddings too!)
"Thank you for a wonderful feast on Sunday . Everyone was extremely complimentary about the food and we had a fab afternoon of celebrations!"
