Why us?


We screen every chef on our platform to make sure they match our requirements and values.


Immediately know which chef is available to cook for you and choose dishes from their seasonal menu.


Only the bare minimum kitchen set-up is required. Baking cakes in saucepans is not unheard of!


By cutting out the middleman, our Nomads can offer you the private chef experience for restaurant prices.


£5m insurance cover for your Nomad should an accident occur in your home.


We believe in fair chef pay. 100% of what you pay for the menu goes straight to the chef.

One Feeds Two

Through partnering with One Feeds Two we are bringing meaning to the events we cater for.

For every guest served by a Nomad Cook, a child in poverty will receive a free school meal.

So, the next time a Nomad cooks for you and your friends, you can take pride in the fact that you’re supporting a group of school children eating around a table, enjoying a meal, just like you are.


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.

Are there kitchen requirements?


Only the bare essentials. To have a Nomad Cook in your kitchen you will need to have an oven, four hobs and at least a sideboard of 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 ingredient are included in the cost of the menu.

Where does my money go?


When booking, three items will be on the invoice:
1. The menu cost 
2. The Nomad's travel cost 
3. A 10% service fee 

The Nomad will receive the full amount from the menu and the travel. We cover our operational cost by charging you a 10% fee on top of this.

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.
