How we do it
How it works
2. Confirm details & Pay
We will put you in contact with the Nomad to sort out all the small details of the event
Your Nomad will arrive with fresh ingredients, cook, serve and do the washing up.
My experience working for a private chef agency taught me three things:
1) Private chefs are considered an expensive luxury
2) The customer did not know the chef until they were in their house
3) Private chefs have no control over what they are paid
I quit the agency and started Nomad Cooks because I do not believe that customers and chefs should be held to these constraints.
Nomad Cooks aims to bring transparency and accessibility to the private chef industry. When you book a Nomad through our platform, you pay a fair price for a brilliant service and the Nomad receives 100% of what they charge you.

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.
What's 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 (10%).
Where does my money go?
We are proud that Nomads receive 100% of what you pay for the menu. We charge a 10% booking fee on top of the price of the menu you choose. This allows us to continue to operate and also donate to our charity partner.
Let's say you order a Nomad's menu which costs £100.
You are charged £110

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!
