About Hungry Chefs

Hungry Chefs – Private Chef Services


Hungry Chefs is a unique catering service specialising in Italian and Mediterranean cooking. We are a couple who work together to ensure you have a seamless and fabulous event. Umberto, the chef, is a Sicilian who will create amazing food for you. Claire will deal with your enquiry and help you plan your event and menu – providing front of house service at your event. Umberto is obsessive about giving his customers dishes full of flavour. We can provide multi-course tasting menus, fabulous buffets with vibrant hot and cold food, canapés and antipasti as well as 3 course dining menus.

Our food is vibrant with a focus on the best ingredients and made from scratch. We use locally-sourced, high-welfare produce from Somerset and Devon with the added bonus of Southern Italian specialty ingredients such as Nduja (Calabrian spicy sausage), Fregola (Sardinian giant cous cous) Bottarga (dried tuna fish or mullet roe) and anelletti (Sicilian pasta rings).

Our kitchen is registered with North Somerset Council and has a 5* hygiene rating. All food is transported in professional cool boxes so that the correct temperature is maintained during transit – we can even bring sorbet and gelato. We cover Bristol, Bath, Somerset, the Cotswolds, Devon and more (mileage charges apply).

Talk to us about all your catering needs including dinner parties, buffets, meal delivery, events, canapé and bowl food parties. We also have a large antipasti plank which is a great informal start to a party allowing guests to mingle with drinks and help themselves to arancini (Sicilian risotto balls), bruschette, crostini, olives, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, cheeses and cured meats.

Hungry Chefs is a catering service offering Private Chef experiences and catering for all events.  With 8 years’ experience providing chefs in London and the South West, we know how to make your dinner party into an unforgettable experience.  We are hungry to share our passion and skills to deliver an outstanding service for your events.
