How to host without hassle: Hire a private chef through this ace site.

Imagine hosting a dinner party for which you didn’t prep, you didn’t cook and you certainly didn’t wash up. Sound tempting? Then La Belle Assiette is one worth having up your sleeve.

Taking the ‘eat out at home’ dining experience a notch up from Deliveroo, this book on-demand private chef service takes all the stress out of hosting. Available in several European countries as well as six UK cities, La Belle Assiette currently has 364 professional chefs on its books with over 5000 customer reviews between them.

Customers can browse for a chef that suits their needs then book online choosing quality menus grouped into three clear price levels: £39, £59 and £89 per person.

It’s not cheap but the reviews (which seem to be mainly 5 star) speak volumes, and for a special occasion, this would be a seriously lovely treat, giving hosts time to enjoy their evening and guests without worrying about burnt chicken or piles of washing up to contend with at the end of the night.
