These pictures give you some ideas of what we have done in the past but only by working together will we know what we will create in the future.

About

London Personal Chef is born out of a love for creating wonderful dining experiences for friends and family. I have a passion for travel, food and entertainment and look forward to using my culinary influences and taking you on a unique "gourmand" journey.

Hussein Bahsoun_Optimised



London Personal Chef is Hussein Bahsoun. Hussein curates, creates, cooks; he works with clients, develops the menus and ensures that love is at the core of it all. If you use London Personal Chef, you are invited into Hussein’s world. Hussein works with a team of trusted assistants and service staff when required, but most projects are his alone.

 

Born in Senegal to a Lebanese family, Hussein’s passion for food has taken him round the world seeking out new flavours, influences and food experiences.  He trained in France and worked as a chef for many years in notable restaurants and cafes in Paris and London, before launching his own boutique personal chef business in Notting Hill Gate in 2002.

 

Hussein moved to Australia in 2006 and created Sydney Personal Chef. After nine years of looking after Australian families, Art Galleries and University departments it was time to return to London and to reconnect with his family, his friends and European flavours.

And so Sydney Personal Chef transitioned into London Personal Chef.

“My experience in Sydney gave me the opportunity to bring back and share the great Australian dream; living in Australia allowed me to bring together my many cultural influences; classical French and English food, the seductive flavours and warmth of the Middle East and the fresh vibrancy of modern Australian and Asian cookery. Back in England my food is based on fresh, seasonal ingredients which I source from the best providores throughout London. I work closely with clients to custom design menus  – to find out what food they love, what food will delight their taste buds. I approach every meal I prepare, whether it is a family lunch or a large function, with joy, passion and attention to detail. I love London and the suburbs and travel end to end for the freshest and most authentic ingredients; of course I love the fish and seafood at Billingsgate market and the locally produced products at London’s foodie heaven farmers markets, but I adore the less well known corners of London. I buy olives, pistachio and date syrup from Damas Gate in Shepherd’s Bush, buffalo mozzarella from Gennaro Delicatessen in Lewisham, and twisted haloumi from Green Valley in Marble Arch. I get Asian spices from Southall and fresh pasta from Burro e Salvia and the best Turkish ingredients from Dalston. I have a passion for travel, food and entertainment and find inspiration from near and far; I seek out amazing restaurants and crazy backstreets from Tasmania to Taiwan. I get menu and event ideas by immersing myself in art, craft, ceramics, fashion and people wherever I go. My events are never stale and menus are never repeated; everything I do I do with love.”

 

I very much look forward to working with you soon.

From the blog

I love to travel and experience different cultures and food. It has allowed me to experiment and fuse the diverse elements of my influences and training. In my blog, I hope I can offer you a taste of the amazing journey I have been blessed to be able to encounter.

Testimonials

Our clients love what we do and we have loads of emails to prove it! Here are some quotes, we'd be happy to provide you with references and phone numbers if you want to speak to a satisfied customer.

Hussein is not an ordinary chef. He is a chef with imagination, creativity and deep love for the food he creates and the people for whom he creates it. His meals are always a delight –– extraordinarily good, healthy and beautiful. We always looked forward to them. To my mind, he is one of the most exciting chefs today.
All the best!

With a 12 month old set of twins and a 3 year old to raise, my wife and I reached out to Hussein for assistance with our weekly meals, and we’ve not looked back since! Hussein has exceeded all our expectations and demonstrated that it’s possible (and economical) for us to employ a personal chef to cater to our family’s needs on a weekly basis. Having lived and worked around the globe, Hussein’s dishes are as good as anything I’ve eaten and enable us to enjoy freshly prepared restaurant quality meals in the comfort of our own home. The variety of dishes Hussein cooks means that his twice weekly deliveries have brought that child like excitement of ‘I wonder what’s for dinner’ back into our household, and then there’s his desserts . . .

Hussein,
I was so lovely to meet you in person last night.
Thank you so much for the most amazing dinner – everyone had a great time (even with baby Max being part of the action) I think your food was a huge part of making the night a success!  Thank you so much, I can’t wait to plan my next dinner party with you!!
Sincerely,
Annie

Dearest Hussein,
I write this message at midnight (because time is running away with me ) to thank you SO VERY MUCH for the gorgeous, utterly thoughtful hamper you unnecessarily put together for us. We should be thanking you! Your cuisine is endlessly inventive and much praised by the dozens and dozens of people who are lucky enough to enjoy a repas a la Hussein . Tonight en tete a tete we both loved the miso and the pears + dates; I loved the interestingly prepared fish and Brian the little pea / potato cutlets. Friday night was a triumph. The praise should be ringing in your ears from a distance.
Warmest as always,
Gene
