Reasons to hire a private chef

Private chefs are a great choice for families that require premium quality cuisine or complex diets.

They can work intimately with their managers to cater for explicit individual inclinations and needs and can cook a scope of foods catering for tailor dietary necessities, like Kosher, Halal, gluten and dairy free.

What to expect when you hire a private chef

Plan meals ahead

Agree on the menu with your chef as far in advance as you wish. Following a diet or eating a healthier, balanced diet will never be a challenge again.

Your budget under control

A chef will take care of your kitchen and shopping. You will know in advance what you need to stock up, and you will also be able to save money by making the best use of your food.

Be the star of any social events

A private chef can work on everyday dishes and complex elaborations to dazzle the most demanding guests: international cuisine, fine pastries, a restaurant at home.

Are you following a specific diet?

If so, a personal chef is your perfect ally: No matter your needs, taste, or preferences, he adapts to you; NO more overthinking; NO more spending countless hours reading labels at the supermarket, whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, diabetic, or a celiac or simply lactose intolerant, our chefs will customize all the details of your dreamed meal.

hundreds of homeowners

Emily Warren 46, London

I work in the City of London and have both a nanny and a housekeeper from Nomenial. I was looking, from the very beginning, for an agency without the picture of a castle in the background: the staff and service of Nomenial are down to earth and friendly - we speak the same language

Michael Brown 51, Manchester

Would highly recommend. I searched around for different options for hiring a live in nanny and then stumbled across Nomenial. Excellent service - cheaper than all the other options.

Cindy Thomas 48, Leeds

It took them several weeks to eventually find me a housekeeper - but i don't mind too much because in the end it was worth the wait. I live in a remote village so I was worried about being able to find someone.

Martha Reynolds 56, London

Very attentive staff. Would recommend and use their services again if needed.

Oliver McKee 49, Edimburgh

To be honest it was a little bit more expensive than I was initially hoping to pay for a nanny, but in fairness the service was excellent and they did make my life easier.

Johnathan Folks 52, London

I'm very satisfied with the service that our family have received from nomenial. It would've been so much more difficult without them to find a housekeeper as flexible.
