What is Nomad Cooks?

Nomad Cooks is a booking platform that enables customers to access the best freelance private chefs in the UK.

Who are the Nomads?

Nomads are excellent cooks with a passion for food and quality. Furthermore, they are approachable and great communicators; Nomads understand that service is key to successful private chef work.

What are the benefits?

Jojo started Nomad Cooks out of frustration for working for an unfair chef agency. We know how hard it is to be a chef so we want to fairly reward the talent, hard work and resilience that it takes.

🎗 Fair chef pay

You receive 100% of what a customer pays for your menu (the industry standard is 60%). We make money by charging the customer a 15% service fee.

⭐️ Creative and financial independence

You design and price your own menu.

🦦 Freedom to work when, where and how you want

You choose when you are available and what type of jobs you want to be available for.

👥 Community

We know that being a freelance chefs feels lonely - join an active community who look out for each other and share advice.

🌈 The other bits

- Additionally, all Nomads are insured for public and private liability for up to £5 million under our policy with Zurich.
