Private Chef

Do you ever wish you could go out for supper without leaving the house? Well, you can when you use our Private Chef Service.  Whether you have something special to celebrate or you just want to get together with friends or family, eating together is by far the best way to celebrate and socialise. 

Give yourself a break with our Private Chef Service and let us bring the restaurant to you with your very own personal chef at home or at a venue of your choice.

Once the menu is all agreed, there’s nothing left to think about but relaxing and enjoying the company and the food.  Perhaps it’s a dinner you’d like or a more informal party with canapés being served throughout the evening.  

Based in Bristol, we provide the chef to produce restaurant quality food for you and your guests, from your chosen menu, as well as waitress service to lay the table, serve and clear up – when your guests have left your kitchen will be left spotless. All you’ll have to do is relax and enjoy yourselves.

We have seasonal dinner party menus for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter – please take a look.  If you’d like to book, call us on 0117 962 1770 or enquire via our contact form. We love talking food and we can devise a special menu just for you.

Corporate Event Catering

There’s so much to organise when you’re running a successful corporate event, so the last thing you need is to waste your time stressing about the food & catering.  We understand, so we make it really easy for you by suggesting delicious and practical solutions to your corporate event catering needs.

Choose from a selection of laid back grazing boards or cold buffet menus, whatever you like to call them!  If more formal eating is what you need on this occasion, you can have that too. Just call us for a chat and we can advise you on how best to cater for your corporate event.  You can also source your drinks on sale or return and equipment hire through us and we can take care of staffing your event too.

Based in North Bristol with a 5 star purpose built catering kitchen, we use seasonal and locally sourced produce and make everything fresh for your event.  We cater for all your dietary requirements & allergens, from a sociable canapé reception for your new office launch or networking event to lunchtime menus to suit you.

If you have a corporate event coming up, please call us on 0117 962 1770 or enquire via our contact form

About Tara

Tara Clist is an award-winning chef and author who set up Bristol caterers Tara’s Table in 2010 after becoming disillusioned with 9-5 life.  Tara started from the bottom up in top restaurant kitchens in Bristol, as well as Babington House in Somerset.  She is a Judge at The Taste of the West Awards and Tara’s Table has been awarded Luxury Caterer of the Year 2019 by Lux Magazine, as well as Caterer of the Year 2018 by The Luxury Travel Guide. Tara published her first book, 10 Years of Food Fads, in 2020 to celebrate 10 years in business.

Provenance & Zero Waste

Based in the green city of Bristol, we are caterers committed to using only seasonal, responsibly sourced produce. We will never use meat or poultry that is mass produced in a factory somewhere; our fish comes from a sustainable source, our eggs are free range and our fruit and vegetables are always in season.

Of course, we can’t buy everything British, so things like lemons and olive oil normally come from Italy, Spain or Portugal. But we will never buy air freighted goods that come to us out of season, like apples from New Zealand when home grown stocks have run out… Which is why our menus for events and private parties change with the seasons.

We are fully committed to a Zero Food Waste Policy: naturally, the customer comes first so, whilst you can always be assured that there will be plenty of food for you and your guests at your event, (we know people very often like to come back for second helpings!), we aim to avoid unnecessary leftovers and waste wherever possible.  We make all your food from scratch and we reduce as much food waste and spoilage as possible  through careful handling and diligent storage at the preparation stage. We compost all our own veg waste on-site.

Where disposables have to be used at your event, we always use compostable packaging and disposables, like plates, cutlery & napkins and are ever mindful of plastics use, keeping this to a minimum.

Dietary Requirements & Allergens

 

Dietary Requirements & Allergens:

We are happy to cater for dietary requirements and can provide a full list of allergens in each dish on request.
