About Hungry Chefs - Private Chef and Catering Services
Hungry Chefs provide unique and memorable dining experiences that allow you to shine as a host. Hungry Chef Umberto is a Sicilian native with over 20 years' experience in European restaurants and 7 years working as a personal chef. The food is vibrant with a focus on the best ingredients and made from scratch. We use locally-sourced, high-welfare produce from Somerset and Devon with the added bonus of Southern Italian specialty ingredients such as Nduja (Calabrian spicy sausage), Fregola (Sardinian giant cous cous) Bottarga (dried tuna fish or mullet roe) and anelletti (Sicilian pasta rings). If you're looking for a different catering experience, a change from the usual bland catering fare, talk to us about your event.
Our kitchen is registered with North Somerset Council and has a 5* hygiene rating. All food is transported in professional cool boxes so that the correct temperature is maintained during transit - we can even bring sorbet and gelato. We cover Bristol, Bath, Somerset, the Cotswolds, Devon and more (mileage charges apply). Talk to us about all your catering needs including dinner parties, buffets, meal delivery, events, canapé and bowl food parties. We also have a large antipasti plank which is a great informal start to a party allowing guests to mingle with drinks and help themselves to arancini (Sicilian risotto balls), bruschette, crostini, olives, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, cheeses and cured meats.
You will work with a dedicated client services manager to help plan your menu and event. We will guide you through the booking process, consult with you on menu requirements and communicate with you regularly in the lead-up to your event so you are informed and assured throughout the process. From an initial telephone consultation, to the departure of chef, customer service is our focus. We have many reviews from satisfied clients which we are happy to share.

Wonderful 70th birthday meal
We used Hungry Chefs for a special meal to celebrate my Mum's 70th birthday whilst on holiday in Devon. It was a real pleasure booking through Claire who took the time to get to know a little more about our evening, my Mum's background and dietary likes/dislikes. Umberto created a wonderful menu for us and came prepared with all he needed to deliver a truly spectacular meal. Delicious fresh scallops, melt in the mouth lamb and a divine light lemon pud. It was a lovely experience from start to finish. I can highly recommend Hungry Chefs for others out there looking for a delicious, high end meal served in your home.
Thanks again Claire!

Amazing service and incredible food!
Claire and Umberto were an incredible team! They catered for all dietary requirements and gave us multiple options on dish choices.

Top notch 4 course dinner for 16 of us. Good value, good service, efficient and very friendly. I highly recommend Hungry Chefs. Could not have asked for more! Thank you Umberto and Claire
Fantastic service, tasty food
Umberto and Claire were a pleasure to work with. They catered for our Sports club AGM, which was hosted in a remote location in Wales. Though they already had a booking they cooked delicious arancini and arranged for delivery of the food.
They were a pleasure to work with, responding in a timely manner and catering for all requested dietary requirements. They were very flexible and accommodated our unusual requests e.g. remote location
Would definitely use again
Thanks Umberto and Claire
