My name’s Paul Short, a trained chef based in the North East of England , experienced in a range of cuisines and skills. My career in Catering & Hospitality began at the age of 13 as a Pot washer in a small restaurant. It was then that my passion for food was ignited, witnessing fresh local produce from field and sea being cooked simply and elegantly. Before, during and after qualifying from college I have been able to work under some great Head Chef’s all with a variety of styles and skills.
I have set up Paul’s Private Dining to provide an affordable, tailored & personal approach to catering for Private Dinner Parties and Cookery Lessons in the comfort of your home. I have up to date food hygiene certification and I am fully insured.
I am available to hire to cater for your Private Dinner Party, for up to 8 people, in the comfort of your home. Let me take care of the Menu Planning, Ingredient Sourcing, Cooking and even Dishwashing to give you more time to relax. With Menus starting from £32.00pp for a 3-Course Dinner why not treat that someone special to an intimate dinner or a arrange that long overdue catch-up with some old friends.
Are you looking to learn a meaningful lifelong skill? Or maybe you wish to reignite your passion for food? Or do you think that someone you know could do with a bit more guidance in the kitchen?
