About us

Hi, I'm Jojo, I started Nomad Cooks in 2018 after I witnessed first-hand how agency-booked private chefs couldn’t deliver dinner guests the experience they deserve.

Poor communication, lack of personalisation and cost-cutting led to second-rate dining experiences for guests.

There were issues for the chefs too: low pay, lack of autonomy, and no ability to create bespoke menus their clients would love.

In 2018 I was working in the Algarve for a chef agency. Our boss would send us to glitzy mansions with a set menu and the client's name. It was a broken system: the client wouldn't know who we are, and we'd get paid a tiny fraction of what the customer pays. On top of this, we were reporting to a boss who didn't care.

How we're changing things

One Feeds Two charity

On our platform, each chef gets paid 100% of the cost of the menu. Our chefs work as freelancers. They're passionate about making each dining experience a unique and memorable experience.

We also donate a school meal to a child in poverty for each guest we serve.

Where we are now

In the last 12 months our amazing Nomads have served 100s of happy guests.

I’d love for you to try Nomad Cooks, or send me your feedback on how I can improve the service.

Nomad Cooks is only a year old so we’re listening, learning and growing every day. Please contact me any time with any question
