Wonderful way to entertain! I put in a request to Nomad Cooks at short notice not really expecting them to be able to help out. How wrong I was! I'd highly recommend this up and coming business

Frequently Asked Questions

Any unanswered questions? Say hello with the chat bubble below.

Can you order more than one thing on the chef's menu?


Yes - if you have dietary requirements within the group then your chef will be happy to cook alternative dishes for those who need.

Who are the Nomads?


The Nomads are a community of the best up-and-coming freelance chefs in London; each chef is vetted against high standards and only the top 10% make the cut.

What addresses do you serve?


We’re currently serving guests in Greater London. Outside of Greater London? Please start a chat with us using the chat bubble below.

Can you cater for bespoke requirements and events?


Yes, absolutely. Please reserve the chef that you like for the event date. You can then chat with them and tailor a menu to fit your event perfectly.

Are there kitchen requirements?


Only the bare essentials. To welcome a Nomad Cook in your kitchen you will need to have an oven, four hobs and at least a sideboard for preparation space. Further details of the space can be discussed with your Nomad after booking.

Do I buy the ingredients?


No, your Nomad will buy fresh ingredients before the event. The ingredients are included in the cost of the menu.

Can you help with dietary requirements?


Yes! If you have specific dietary requirements, Nomads can adapt or create new dishes to suit individual needs. Please ensure that you include all dietary requirements and allergies in the booking form and your Nomad will respond with suggested alternatives.

Where does my money go?


When booking, three items will be on the invoice:
1. The menu cost (includes the Nomad's time and the cost of ingredients)
2. The Nomad's travel costs 
3. A £30 platform admin fee

100% of the cost of the menu and travel go to the Nomad. 

What is One Feeds Two?


Our partnership with One Feeds Two means that for every guest served by a Nomad, a child in poverty will receive a free school meal. Their approach in combatting child hunger through hot school meal promotes both education and essential nutrition.
