My name is Cary and I would like to introduce you to my mum, Jenifer, Aunty Jean and The Guest Chef from the Deep South …. this used to be my introduction when I welcomed up to 18 guests to enjoy a 5-8 course meal that we prepared and served in our special room at the back of the Memorial Hall in Blyth. All guests would arrive at 7 and they usually start to leave after 10:30pm so our Bistro meals were to be savoured and enjoyed.

As a direct consequence of Covid-19 I had to stop these wonderful evenings however I am pleased to say that I am still able to cook them for you …. the only difference being that I now deliver them to you rather than you coming to me. They are themed and are my interpretation based on travels and experiences I have shared with the Guest Chef from the Deep South.

Everything is cooked freshly for you, packaged in eco friendly containers and delivered to you for your enjoyment . Whilst, when possible, I can cater for most dietary requirements your Bistro meal will always be a specially created surprise …. opening it really is like unwrapping a stocking on Christmas morning. Your meal comes with a menu and full cooking / reheating instructions and is designed to be enjoyed within 2 days of delivery.

I have set dates for my Bistro Nights throughout the year but I also make these meals on request …. so if you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or just want to enjoy a special meal in the comfort of your home why not get in touch and ask me to cook for you.

Sample Greek Menu

Here’s an extract from one of my menus together with pictures showcasing some of my food. The bistro menus are never the same and change depending on the theme and the season but this will give you an idea of what’s in store should you decide to be my bistro guest.

This is based on the experiences the Guest Chef and I have enjoyed in a little piece of heaven we like to go to in South West Crete …. with the inclusion of some baRnby’s twists. I have made the dessert more baRnby’s than Greek and of course you wouldn’t get this number of courses in your taverna on the beach …. but I have designed them in this way to fit in with my other bistro evenings which are always several courses long…. it’s your meal however and please enjoy as you wish.

Look what my clients say

Perfect! I rang to say how much I enjoyed the French bistro evening! It was such a memorable meal - every element was delicious and so perfectly balanced - nothing competing all blending beautifully. A rare skill! Thank you for all your efforts. And to the Guest Chef for our bonus treat, which Sue was especially delighted with ????.
