The sooner the better as we cannot hold dates. It is not enough to ask us to pencil you in the calendar, every booking is valid only after payment. We might make exceptions for a few days till you have the chance to check it again with your guests, but please remember, in case of high interest, payment will secure a date and allow us to proceed with the booking.
Up until 1 week before the event, you can.
If there is a last minute downgrade in the numbers, we will make the paid portions and you can share it at the event or save it for later.
We accept payments solely by bank transfer. You always get the bank details in our very first e-mail. Every event has to be fully paid upfront. When there are over 20 guests, you can pay a deposit to make the booking and then pay the outstanding balance 4 weeks before the event.
Cash, check, card, phone or Paypal payments are not accepted.
This has never happened. Within reason, we always try to reschedule your date subject to availability rather than keeping our official T&C. It is more for occasions where the cancellation does not take place in a proper manner or in advance.

Misi came to our house on Saturday night to cook a surprise dinner for my husbands 50th birthday with our friends. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We were very well looked after and nothing was too much trouble, including the birthday boy arriving late! Thank you for making our evening so special
Hired Food Champs Private Chef Services for a small birthday gathering – an absolutely fantastic experience!

Highly recommend to anyone looking for a private chef. Thank you Misi and Food Champs for a wonderful experience and making our birthday celebrations so memorable :)
We were looking for a private chef quite last minute for my sisters 21st and came across Mihaly and his team – he was so responsive and willing to adapt to what we wanted and the evening itself was just incredible ! The food was OUTSTANDING from start to finish – we all agreed that it was best food we have ever tasted (particularly the duck!). The service was great and they left the place spotless. Overall, they really made the evening so special and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone !!
