"A wonderful night as ever, and we can't wait to find an excuse to do the same again Jody Baker, BBQ Party

"The food was superb. we  got the relaxed evening with wonderful Mediterranean food that I love. Thank you also for leaving my kitchen just as you found it. I am so often left disappointed after a family celebratory meal out but last night I certainly wasn't.  We all thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you again it was wonderful!"
"Thank you so much for Vals special birthday dinner party last night providing exactly what you promised. 
 My daughters following our meeting were excited and Sunday could not come fast enough for them and you did not let us down as all the family were impressed with the food and presentation which could not be faulted. 
 Val loved it, so thank you again and we will have no hesitation in recommending you to friends. 

"Gary provided a great birthday experience for my wife in preparing, cooking and serving for a party of 40 people. We asked for a surprise menu and it was a fabulous event. Gary is very personable and worked very hard through the whole day, I couldn't ask for more,   a truly great experience that I would recommend to all"

“Our reception canapés represented a mixture of tasteful delights which appealed to all our diners. The Tuna Carpaccio was exceptionally well complemented by the crème fraiche and soy sauce and served as an excellent appetizer to the trio of pork cuts, delicious seasonal vegetables and cider & apple gravy, followed by the velvety smooth vanilla crème brulee with a delicious tuile biscuit" 
Noel Reidy, private dinner party

"Thank you so much for the fine feast that you put together for my birthday. Kevin has said that it was the best meal that he has ever eaten. We were very impressed with the quality of the ingredients that you used as well as the presentation and how delicious it all was. You have been brilliant throughout - I had a few guests who either had food allergies or were fussy eaters, but every time I spoke to you, you put me at ease and found alternatives - you are extremely knowledgeable and very professional in your field. 

Thanks once again for your part in making my birthday perfect" Eleanor and Kevin Willcox

Private Dinner Party for Louise bush,

"Thank you for last night. The food was superb!! All the girls were raving over a perfect evening, one we are all hoping to repeat soon. Thanks again"
Sharon Sothcott, private Dinner Party.

"Gary, thanks for another tremendous array of dishes last night! From the start, the bread, delicately flavoured with parmesan and sun dried tomato was a big hit and I had to play the host, letting our friends clear the plate in front of me. Each course raised the bar further. Thanks for building my favourite (duck) into the canapé and I am really glad we went with the pork main. The tenderloin was cooked to perfection; succulent and beautifully complemented by the Stroganoff sauce and stilton mash (sorry - I mean creamed potatoes :-)). The crackling was great to look at and better to crunch on whilst the pork belly was a brilliant finishing touch that I was 
not expecting! The toffee apple crumble was wickedly scrumptious!
Thanks again Gary. It was another great evening built around you and your food. We love having you cook for us and out friends. It's a real treat which allows us to relax whilst you take care of the hard stuff :-) Cindy and I can't wait 'til next time" 

"Once again Gary we had the most amazing night, the food was superb. The starter was sensational and the main was a perfect winter warmer and very moorish :-) The desert was just............well it was the best, I am lost for words really, we just loved it all,
Great company and great food, what more could anyone ask for, you are an artist with food Gary and we are extremely lucky to know you and proud to be associated with photographing your amazing work.
Thank you seems such a simple term but THANK YOU"
Quote from Jules and Sue, Dinner Party.

"The food was amazing and it was a real luxury not having to lift a finger. The food was so full of flavour and beautifully presented.  You'd obviously put a lot of thought into the menu and Ian and I loved how it reflected our personal tastes.
Having now tasted your food, we are confident that you would provide a delicious and very special wedding meal for us.  
Thanks so much for all the time and effort you've put in - we really appreciate it"

"I'd like to say a big thank you to Gary for my one to one cooking lesson. As a beginner home cook it was a great experience to learn some restaurant standard dishes. To have the one to one attention is excellent as we cooked and Gary was able to show me how to bring the recipe to life with attention to detail and techniques beyond the instructions you would find in a book.  I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to learn how to cook. Gary can tailor to your needs whatever your level.. And its good fun :)"
Owen Heddicker, Cooking lesson.

"You did us proud last night Gary. The food was amazing. A very big thank you." 
Zoe Gransbury, Hot buffet for barn dance.

"Thanks SO much for such a fab birthday meal on Sunday night! It was delicious and know my hubby enjoyed doing the prep and cooking with you. It was lovely that each course was a surprise, and it's hard to choose which one was my favourite!! It really started off my birthday weekend perfectly, thank you :) xx" Issy Feltham, Birthday Dinner Party

"Hi Gary, just wanted to thank you so much for the most delicious dinner! The starters were so yummy, especially the chorizo and homemade bread. The beef Wellington was to die for and the desserts were my idea of heaven! You cook with such passion and love and this is most certainly reflected in the food you serve! Thanks so much Gary, we will most certainly be having you over to cook for us again soon!"

"Hi Gary, just a short note of thanks for a tremendous dinner on Friday. Once again you and your food stole the evening and our friends were simply blown away with the standard of cooking and presentation. You delivered another fine dining experience for all  and though every element was brilliant, for me the trio of duck was a simply stunning combination. We are working on pulling together the next evening and really looking forward to working up the next menu with you. 
Looking forward to seeing you at ours again soon." 

"Lovely, lovely, lovely. What a fantastic evening. Gary is such a nice man and his cooking is amazing - it was one of the nicest meals I have ever had - and so beautifully presented. He even kept the kitchen spotlessly tidy. I definitely recommend him for any private party - I shall be keeping his number for sure. Thank you Gary (and my daughters for arranging him of course!) x" Jan Rutherford, Hen party.

"A big Thank You for the fabulous dinner last night and for being so helpful and supportive in the planning. The scallops were awesome, succulent and oh so tasty. The salsa and the lemon and black pepper rice made for a beautiful combination. Every combination tasted fantastic and I am completely spoiled. Tart tartin, ice cream and cinnamon custard was sumptuous, the caramel baskets being the ultimate finishing touch. We all loved it and are looking forward to seeing you at ours for round two! 
Very best regards" Mark & Cindy Billington

THANK YOU SO MUCH for such a FABULOUS BBQ you laid on for us last night!  The food was absolutely gorgeous and in abundance!  All our friends commented on how wonderful it was!  You were incredibly professional, calm and helpful – even helping us lug boxes of booze into the house when the heavens opened!  The sensational desserts seemed to appear from nowhere. We will DEFINITLY be using your services again – if all our friends haven’t booked you first! We are already looking to plan a ‘winter’ party now!
Many many thanks again – Fantastic!"

"Thank you once again for all the wonderful food that you prepared and cooked for us all. The feedback from everyone there on Friday night was that the food was excellent, and they all had a great time. I have been telling everyone what a wonderful experience it was to have a chef come into my home and to cook with only the glasses to wash up!!!!!" 
Louise Bush, Owlesbury.

"A fantastic experience for my in laws, amazing food with a personal touch. Like having master chef in your own kitchen, the only effort being made was to lift the knife and fork....... Brilliant!!!!!!"
Liesl Devereux, Bishopstoke.

"Food was proper awesome ChefGary. You are a legend. Am still in awe of that honeycomb brulee topping!"
Quote from Joanne Corburn.

"I am the 'Hen' of the Hen Party that Gary came to cook for. It was a complete and fabulous surprise that my bridesmaids had organised for us. Gary was fantastic! He came and got straight into preparing our food with absolutely no fuss, which I  imagine is not easy when it's not a familiar kitchen. The food was absolutely amazing and Gary put in so much effort and passion into his menu, helping to make our night really special. Thank you Gary, you made it a Hen Weekend to remember" 
Joanna Aunon, Near Andover.

"Hi Gary,
The six of us had the most amazing time and as the host's, Sue and I were chilled all night happy knowing that you were creating a taste sensation (well lots of them) just a few feet away in our kitchen. Every one of the 4 courses brought something new and each and every one was amazing to look at and to eat, there was not an awful lot of talking going on rather lots of happy munchy sounds. To top things off we woke the next day to a spotless kitchen and no washing up at all.This was our greatest decision with regards to a dinner party for many years, you will be back !!!!!" Jules and Sue Porter, Chilworth.

"Gary although we have enjoyed your food many times, this was our first wedding experience. The food was simply amazing, a very well thought out menu and very well executed by you and your staff. The food not only tasted but looked amazing too. Great work my ChefGary, its an honour to have you as a friend."
Jules and Sue

"When Issy and I got engaged, ChefGary was not only the obvious choice for our wedding catering, but by far the best too. Gary organised everything for us and made the whole process very fun for us. From beginning to end he put so much effort into the day and the results were clear in the food he produced. Our menus were so personal to us and we had so many fantastic comments about the quality. The only difficult part of the whole process was choosing the food from all the fabulous options! I wouldn't hesitate to use Gary again, and can't recommend him enough! Thanks Gary for a fantastic job and for making our special day so tasty!"
Andy Feltham, Southampton.

"We both can't thank you enough for everything you did at our wedding - the food, the catering, the organisation, all the little touches......it all was simply fantastic and played such a big part in making our wedding a memorable one. We have had so many comments about how delicious the canapes, starter, main, petite fours & buffet were, and those guests who had intolerances that were catered for said that they had never been taken care of so well at a wedding before with the food they were given. It really was top class, and you are such a talented chef :)"
Issy Whatmore, Southampton.

"Nikki had a great night and would like to say thanks again. We will definitely have you back for another event"
Quote from Gary Connolly.

"The food was delicious and you received lots of compliments. Particular hits were the sandwiches and wraps which were completely demolished along with the home made sausage rolls and quiche. We would be happy to recommend you to other friends and family"
