The Good Cook Co - Testimonials

Emma was utterly wonderful from start to stop. She completely got us, understood about what and how we liked to eat etc. We'd like her to move in with us for ever!

Alex was amazing - we can't praise him highly enough. The food was 'out of this world' and he was just so calm and charming. He had many offers of "please can you come and live with us?"The 6 course dinner on Sat evening was fabulous - better than the tasting menu at Gidleigh Park!

We had an amazing weekend, in no small measure due to Alex. He was all that I could have hoped for and more. He looked after us all perfectly. The food was utterly delicious but what I particularly loved was his speed and efficiency, his manner and courtesy and the way he kept the kitchen spotless. He did all the clearing up and laid the table. His presentation was fantastic. What a great young man. The sort that you would love as a son in law! Thanks so much for organising it.

Sam was amazing! Thank you so much! She was everything we hoped for and more! She worked so hard but never gave the impression that she was tired ( when she must have been) New Year’s Eve was a marathon and she never stopped. She was also so lovely to have around - very easy and relaxed but also extremely professional. Everything was utterly delicious and also she had such great original ideas. Nothing was too much trouble and even breakfasts were a work of art. We will definitely be booking her again. We really were more than thrilled.

THANK YOU - Ash was brilliant, the food was fabulous and we all had a fantastic time. Ash catered for all our needs effortlessly, he wasted no food and made leftovers look new! He was discreet, flexible and a very calming influence - we didn't worry about a thing. We would all love to see Ash again and if we needed a chef he would be top of the list.

I cannot thank you enough for finding Emma for us. She was without doubt the nicest girl we have ever had to cook as well as being a really brilliant one. She smiled all the time, was very patient, full of good and interesting ideas and immaculately clean, organised and tidy. She just got on and if anything needed doing offered her help..

Lady A, Somerset

Thank you for the introduction of Milly, she was a wonderful cook and a pleasure to have in the house.

Mr N, Suffolk

Amber was awesome, fabulous cook, great attitude. Her moules marinieres were the best any of us had ever tasted. Could not praise her more highly. Great choice so many thanks.

Mr S, London

Thank you for introducing us to Minka - she was perfect for the job - charming, low maintenance, flexible and a very good cook and mature beyond her years.

Mrs G, Herts

Lucy was a huge success and an utter star and fitted in very easily in our rather cramped holiday cottage! She was incredibly organised and everything was always on time. She even managed to join us all on the beach for surfing and swimming which the family thought showed great form! She cooked delicious hearty family food from a very basic kitchen and her portion sizes were perfect, so I don't feel too grotesque after a week of 3 course suppers! She made brilliant pic-nics up for lunch and never forgot to pack the corkscrew! There was always a naughty treat waiting for tea too! Lucy is incredibly capable and never needed any prompting, she even walked the dogs for us during the day. Lucy was great fun and very capable in every way, nothing seemed to phase her and I would thoroughly recommend her. Thank you very much for finding Lucy for us.

Thank you so much for recommending Helen as she was great for our week in Ullapool. It was all so different from last year and it was a pleasure to have Helen around. She cooked us some lovely meals and the children thought they'd gained a new special friend.

We have had a great week with Megan and lots of laughs. Megan is so unflappable and so calm and organised. She is a wonderful cook and came up with lots of ideas. I learnt quite a bit from her! Thank you for all your help.
