They have worked in the UK, Europe and America.
Sophie comes from a background primarily consisting of private service having spent 12 years as personal chef to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire at Chatsworth House where she had the privilege of cooking for many VIPs and celebrities including Her Majesty the Queen. Scott has extensive knowledge of public service having spent 3 years in rosetted restaurants around Derbyshire and before that several, front of house positions in Sheffield stretching back to 2002.
They have a passion for sourcing, preparing and presenting outstanding food with flair and individuality to their guests, they have exceptionally high standards and pride themselves on delivering their full package in a warm, upbeat and friendly manner.
Sophie and Scott are extremely hard working, diligent and focused on attention to detail – striving for perfection in everything they do!
A few testimonials from recent clients of theirs will show you how impressed they were with the service both Sophie and Scott provided.
“Sophie and Scott have cooked for us a few times and I can thoroughly recommend them as chefs. They work very hard and have produced some exceptionally delicious food for our clients and guests who have been delighted with every beautiful plate put in front of them. Sophie and Scott are cheerful, utterly polite, discrete and very accommodating of client dietary requests and requirements. They work very well with the existing house team and I will not hesitate to ask them to come and cook for us again. I highly recommend Sophie and Scott as personal chefs”
Lady Cara Willoughby, Birdsall House.
“I can assure you that food and hospitality has always been high on my agenda (as my waistband can verify) and I have been lucky enough to have sampled cooking of the highest order from around the world
My party was lucky enough to have been looked after at a magnificent venue on the North Coast of Scotland for a week by Sophie and Scott and we were amazed at the high standard of cuisine for every meal and the use of fresh locally sourced produce.
All this culinary extravaganza’s, were served to us with a continued smile and a can-do attitude which is also essential when you are on a weeks cherished holiday, where food and wine is one of the central ingredients for success.
I can only highly recommend both Sophie and Scott as a brilliant team who will only impress and never disappoint”
“I am writing to say how lucky my husband and myself, together with a party of eight were to experience the delicious culinary delights of Sophie and Scott whilst staying at The Bighouse, in Scotland last week.
The menus were planned so well, we were treated to the very best breakfasts with variations of cooked items, including Eggs Benedict, kippers, porridge and every conceivable way of cooking eggs, bacon, sausages etc…To start with fruit, yoghurt, cereal, including homemade granola, homemade bread, homemade marmalade and jams. Plus, homemade fresh fruit smoothies and beautifully presented fresh fruits! All of which were totally delicious
We ate picnic lunches, all of which were imaginative, with wonderful quiches, colourful and beautifully presented sandwich type concoctions (home-made bread again) to share and tear, salads, chicken with red pepper sauce, cheeses and cold meats, smoked salmon mousses, a variety of salamis and chorizo, to name just a few of the amazing dishes we were treated to each day.
Always a home-made cake at tea time, then three courses for dinner with perfectly presented, balanced and delicious courses. The lobster with butter, herbs and garlic was exceptional. But so was everything else and both Sophie and Scott worked so hard to produce the excellent and imaginative menus. They were a delight to meet and chat with, nothing was too much trouble for them to do, and I will certainly be employing them to cook for us, as and when we have a special occasion.”
