I’ve written about La Belle Assiette before, and I absolutely love the service – a private chef cooking you an incredible meal in your own home – what could be better?
La Belle Assiette connects people with private chefs, who come to their home and cater for them for dinner parties, at various price ranges. There are so many different cuisines too, meaning you can experiment with different flavours in the comfort of your own home! I hosted another dinner party at mine, this time with Chef Charlie Marriott.
The thing I love about La Belle Assiette is how simple the process is – once you decide on a chef, you have a quick chat about any likes/dislikes/allergies, and you’ll get sent several options.
Charlie, our chef for the evening, is a trained professional chef with 20 years’ experience in the industry. Charlie’s passion for cooking started at the age of 13 where he worked washing pots in the local pub so that he could eagerly watch and learn from the other chefs. Going on to culinary college and working at some of the finest AA Rosette and Michelin restaurants throughout the UK and France, Charlie wanted to turn his passion and ambition for the finest and freshest ingredients and exceptional service into something that could be achievable in the comfort and privacy of one’s home or chosen location.
Our evening was absolutely first-class – the meal was stunning, in every possible way.
We started off with a cured sea-bream tartar, which was served with lemon puree, radish, and fennel.
It was beautifully presented, and tasted amazing – it was really a work of art, and the most beautiful dish to have ever come out of that kitchen I’m sure!
For the main we opted for the Salt marsh lamb rump, which was served with goats curd, pistachio, baby gem and charred onion. It was a triumph.
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I’m still thinking about this dessert.
Blood orange curd, served with Italian meringue and homemade coconut ice cream – it tasted just as good as it looked (it was beautiful).
Again, I can’t recommend La Belle Assiette enough, and be sure to check out Charlie’s profile – you won’t regret it!
