Umberto is a private chef offering high quality, authentic Sicilian and Southern Italian food in Bristol, Devon, Dorset, Cornwall and Wales.  He has worked as a Private Chef for 8 years and has many great reviews from satisfied clients.  Umberto presents each course to the guests with a personal story about the ingredients and the dish that offers an extra element to your chef experience.

Sicilian food is the original fusion cuisine with influences from the French, Arabs, Spanish and also the Greeks. Consequently, as an authentic Sicilian chef, Umberto will wow you and your guests with his food.  He is used to working with Agas and always leaves the kitchen clean and sparkling.

As a much sought-after chef in Somerset, Chef Umberto regularly does private chef work for clients in rented properties.  A popular option is a 3 pre-dinner canapés per person plus 3 course meal.

Booking Process

As experienced private chef providers, we at Hungry Chefs know that booking a personal chef can seem like a daunting process. We have a client services manager to walk you through every stage of planning and preparation so, on the day, you will shine as the host  or hostess of a truly memorable occasion.

Firstly, we work with you to recommend a menu based on your requirements and budget. The cooking facilities can be challenging in rental properties so we try to figure out the best menu for those conditions too. We agree the time for service and chef arrival. After the meal, the chef will return the kitchen to its former state and clean plates, cutlery and tableware. Finally, we’ll brush and mop the floor. .

Quality Food

  • Great Mediterranean food cooked from scratch using seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients where possible plus some exotic specialities from Italy and Sicily.
  • Telephone consultation
  • Client services manager to guide you through booking and manage all logistics and communications regarding your event so you are informed and assured throughout the process.
  • Bespoke menu options for Super-Premium and Luxury Clients.
  • Hungry Chef in the kitchen with courses presented will prove a real talking point
  • Uniformed chef arrives at venue to begin service at time of your choosing so allow time for him to prep food on-site.
  • Meal is served and afterwards, the chef and/or team will return kitchen to the state it was found in, clean up and wash floor leaving you and your guests to enjoy the rest of your event.

We can also supply waiting staff, plates and glassware, table decorations and a perfect customer service.
