  1. Hi Mikael

    We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you and your team did for us on Saturday!

    The food was amazing! The service was fantastic and all of our wedding guests loved your food!!

    We got asked so many times how we found you, and Katharine at The Oak Barn said it was great working with you.

    Thank you again for everything to make sure our wedding breakfast was amazing!!

    We couldn't recommend you enough.

    All our thanks.

    Racheal and James Peck

    Comment : We had a superb meal whilst we were on holiday from Mikael. The cost was reasonable and I felt he became almost the perfect host in someone else's house, leaving us to chat but also joining in at the right time. Very impressive in all aspects of the service offered. We loved it and made our daughter's 21st birthday very special. Thanks Mikael.

    Private comments : This was an incredibly positive experience for us. It was great to hear from Mikael the full service offered if anything untoward should go wrong which would be reassuring if we ever booked with you again if we find ourselves down in this neck of the woods. I am not sure I have anything additional to add to Mikael personally, he is clearly extremely good at what he does.

    Comment : Delicious meal and Mikael was great. Great value for money, enjoyed by all.
    Private comments : The only thing we noted that we maybe should have thought to mention before was to give a little time between courses. The meal was great but with each dish instantly there as you finished the last it was over too fast! If we were to do it again, we would mention a break between courses. Otherwise it was fantastic.

    Comment : I give the chef 10 stars. Mikael's correspondence was great, informing me when he would arrive and the evenings proceedings etc. He arrived on time &quickly settled into my kitchen, laying tables and preparing the meal. Mikael was extremely friendly and polite (very easy to talk to but not overwhelming if you didn't want that). He took time to talk to my teenage children!
    Very respectful. I felt very, very comfortable with him in my home.


    Private comments : I cannot thank Mikael enough he really made our celebratory meal very, very special and I look forward to welcoming them both again into my home in the very near future.
    I will be recommending them to all my friends and family.

    Comment : The appetiser and starter were scrumptious. The main of Greendale beef was cooked to perfection, just melted in the mouth and the Medoc reduction was good enough to drink, in fact we did! Mikael's dessert didn't let him down either and later in the evening we managed to squeeze in his cheese and biscuit selection with freshly baked bread. It's fair to say with all the courses and from all the guests "our plates were licked clean".

    Here is their review:

    Rating out of 5: ★★★★★Comment: Mikael arrived mid-morning and turned out to be an incredible friendly and knowledgeable guy who is clearly passionate about his work - within minutes, he was giving us pointers as to how to better use our oven and make our own triple cooked chips! Also notable is that he brought all of his own equipment with him, from a hot plate all the way through to cutlery, so we didn't need to provide anything. When it was all done, you wouldn't have even known he'd been in our kitchen - it was as spotless then as when he had arrived. he meal was outstanding, haute cuisine served in the comfort of our own home without having to go through the fuss of going out (and the inevitable complications that come with being amongst the public!), and filled us up very comfortably as the main meal of our day - sated and satisfied but not "stuffed"! Mikael did an admirable job, getting the absolute right balance of leaving us to enjoy our meal and happily chatting away with us before and after the meal (with pleasant chatter between courses!) His personality and enthusiasm matches the quality of his food for sure.

  20. Hi Mikael

    A quick note of thanks for the fantastic catering last night. The food was a huge hit with the guests and tied in fantastically with the theme for the evening .

    Tim mentioned Le Frog in his addresses to the guests throughout the evening and we'll shortly be sending an email to all attendees and will refer to you again - would it be okay to put your contact details into the email in case the guests would like to get hold of you?

    I also understand you injured your foot yesterday? I hope you make a quick recovery

    Thanks again

  39. Dear Mikael,



    Huge thank you for last night, absolutely great food, waitresses worked really hard and prosecco went down a storm so great job. As mentioned we will certainly be doing things with you in the future and I have had a telephone enquiry and one in-dealership enquiry from people that attended about you and your business so I have given and sent out your brochures already. These will remain in our waiting room so hopefully we can help you out as much as you have for us.

    If you need recommendation for your website etc, just let me know.
