When thinking about your special occasion, preparing the food is often a source of stress and frustration! Why spend all that time and energy preparing and sourcing food when you could be entertaining your guests, and getting on and enjoying the event? My aim is to take the stress out of the cooking and do all the hard work for you.

Be it a private dinner party for friends, a special birthday, a foodie stag or hen do, I bring the restaurant right to your doorstep, wherever you may be!


Who Is The Culinary Chemist?

Who is the Culinary Chemist? Before I was lucky enough to make it as finalist on the 2016 series of MasterChef, he worked as a research chemist, and as such I bring a touch of molecular gastronomy to classic dishes and flavours. I am constantly experimenting with new styles and techniques to bring you the best possible flavours and textures.

I can prepare delicious dished to whatever style takes your fancy - be it fine dining tasting menus, a simple 3 course meal, all the way to an Indian feast! All of my menus are created especially for you and your event, using seasonal produce sourced locally wherever possible.

How it works

  • Decide on your date and how many guests(see the calendar below for availability)

  • E-mail me at stuart@theculinarychemist.com, letting me know the date and type of event along with your contact details

  • I will then get in touch to discuss your specific requirements for the event.

  • Once the details have been confirmed, I will arrive on the day of the event, do all the preparation, cooking and clearing up, leaving as if I was never there!



"Stuart has created the perfect recipe by combining the sophistication of fine dining with the informality and comfort of dining in your own home. (And no driving or washing up - what could be better?!) To have Stuart cook our meal and for it to served by his lovely partner, Helen, was complete luxury and was just the special and relaxed evening we had hoped for our family celebration.

The evening was excellent value for money and I highly recommend Stuart's cooking skills and stress free entertaining! Thank you!" - Liz, Bamford
