Amateur chef, cleaner & amazing PA near London!


"I cannot possibly recommend Will enough. He turned up and worked for a solid 7 hours, barely stopping. He prepared a delicious BBQ from scratch (including putting the BBQ itself together). We gave him very little instruction just pointed him at the food and off he went. He cleaned the BBQ before starting and food hygiene was great. He made marinades, salads and fresh coleslaw. Catered for kids, adults, vegetarian and Gluten frees. The food was amazing. Meat was cooked perfectly. He cleaned and washed everything up. I tried to send him home early but he insisted on staying until the kitchen was completely clean. I will def book again for any future events. Please choose Will for any jobs you need doing, he is awesome! "

Weekly meal prep


Earlsfield, Greater London

29th May 2019

My boyfriend and I were looking to get either Gousto or HelloFresh prepped for us on a Saturday or preferably a Sunday. This would include bulk cooking lunches and dinners for the week. Gousto and Hello fresh are really really easy as the ingredients are all measured for you with an instruction card. They normally take to cook between 15mins and an hour depending on the recipe. Meals for 4 are cooked and then dished into lunch boxes. Which we can fridge or freeze. There are 4 portions per day (to do a lunch and dinner for 2 people) and there are 4 days worth. So say 4-5hours of your time cooking and a little time to tidy up after (tidying up is usually really easy as it’s just throwing wrapping away and washing the pan and saucepan). If we are there we will of course help you tidy up but we are putting out the task so that we have the free time to do other things at the weekend. You don’t have to be a good cook, just happy to be there are follow the recipe card :) Many thanks!!
