WHAT WE DO

We are a growing community of chefs working nomadically across London. We are revolutionising the industry, offering a fair and competitive service for both chefs and customers, cutting out extortionate agency fees and offering fresh food and a friendly face in the comfort of your own home.

 

Our food, your rules. Perfect for all sorts of celebrations and gatherings!

How we do it

We Nomads are many and varied, from young chefs starting out in the industry to seasoned professionals, which means our customers can tailor every aspect of our service to suit their own needs and budget. Intrigued? Find out more about how it works here.

 

We donate £2 from every booking to our charity, Mary's Meals.

 FAQ 

Who are the Nomads?

Nomads are professionally trained cooks with lots of experience in the hospitality industry. All Nomads are vetted by Nomad Cooks to ensure they meet the highest standard.

Whats included in the cost of the menu?

The ingredients and the Nomad's time. The only extras you will pay for is the travel cost (usually ~£5) and the booking fee (7.5%).

Where does my money go?

Nomad Cooks takes a 15% commission from what you pay for the menu in addition to a 7.5% booking fee. This ensures that we can continue to connect you to chefs as easily as possible.

Nomads receive 85% of what you pay for the menu. Let's say you order a menu which costs £100. Of this, £85 goes straight to your Nomad.

My kitchen is small and isn’t well equipped.

Nomads are experienced in working in all sorts of conditions. Only the kitchen essentials are required: a hob, sink and sideboard. A fully stocked kitchen isn't a problem, Nomads can improvise... baking a cake in a saucepan is not out of the ordinary for them!

About us

My experience working for a private chef agency taught me three things:

1) Private chefs are considered an expensive luxury.

2) The customer had no idea what they were in for when they booked one.

3) You don't get paid much.

I quit the agency and started Nomad Cooks because I do not believe that the customers and chefs should be held to these principles.

Nomad Cooks aims to bring transparency into the private chef industry. Nomads are freelance private chefs who are able to use our platform to display their talent.  When you book a Nomad through our platform you pay a fair price for a brilliant service and the Nomad receives 85% of what you pay.
