The clean-up is an essential part of our dinner party service. Before leaving we will make sure your kitchen is left just as we found it.


Please notify us if you or any of your party suffer any sickness or diarrhoea less than 48 hours prior to our arrival. If you or any of your party are taken ill during your dinner party or lesson please notify us immediately.

Health and safety
Kitchen, equipment and appliances need to be clean before the chef’s arrival. Loose cords and other objects lying on the floor need to be moved due to safety reasons. Work surfaces should be as clear as possible to allow for food preparation and cooking.

Pets and their food bowls need to be moved out of the kitchen beforehand and kept out for the duration.

If on arrival the kitchen is deemed by the chef to be unsafe and/or does not meet appropriate hygiene standards, we have the right to cancel the dinner party / lesson and you will not be entitled to a refund. The same applies if a hazard or a risk to our safety arises during the dinner party / lesson.

Smoking is not permitted in the kitchen during the time of food preparation and cooking.

For cooking lessons only:

You will receive a short briefing on health and safety at the start of your course. Please wear appropriate clothing that will not get in your way when you are preparing and cooking food, as well as comfortable shoes with covered toes. We advise that you wear an apron to protect your clothing. Please do not wear loose jewellery. We are not liable for any damage that occurs to clothing or other belongings.

All food saved should be stored as advised in the lesson and eaten within 24 hours due to safety reasons.


The Scandi Chef is covered by public liability insurance.
