Private chef & event catering

Chef Robert Michael I was raised here in Cornwall and consider myself very fortunate to have enjoyed a happy and successful career as a chef. During my formative years, I've cooked in many exceptional places and had the opportunity to prepare meals for some truly inspiring individuals, including Mitchel Roux and Mitchel Rou Junior, both Michelin-star chefs. My path and journey has somewhat shifted in recent years from working exclusively in professional kitchens to creating Flavour and Wine and cooking in private homes as a personal chef. This has made many significant changes for me, the most rewarding of which is that it allows me to spend more precious time with my two young girls. Now, three years on, Flavour and Wine remains a rewarding challenge. I find myself travelling to many beautiful and often very remote locations around Cornwall, including a brief spell in Italy. 🙂 am very humbled to have received the UK Enterprise Award in 2023 for Best Luxury Catering Service. Flavour and Wine remains a rewarding challenge. I find myself travelling to many beautiful and often very remote locations around Cornwall, including a brief spell in Italy. 🙂 Being part of people's celebrations and catering for groups, most of which are birthdays. 'for those who know me, know I love a party, so what better place to spend my tine.' I've always taken pleasure in meeting new people and find it interesting that for many of the groups I cater to, it is their first experience of having a private chef host their evening. I task myself with taking care of as many aspects of the hosting as possible so that everyone can relax, enjoy, and be part of the get-together without the stress of cooking, washing up, or tidying the kitchen at the end of the evening. A proper luxury at-home service. Rob 👨‍🍳

A memorable evening for a special birthday. 
The food was outstanding. Rob discussed and tweaked the menu to suit a more fussy guest but did not lose the incredible flavours. 
The cauliflower and pork dishes are absolute standouts and all we’ve discussed the day after! Jo was a delight, taking on all roles, from a photographer to a friendly server for the night. 
We can’t thank you enough for an unforgettable evening. 
See you again for the next celebration! 

All the best, the Fountain family :)

Fantastic night with the lovely and extremely talented executive chef Rob. He worked hard to understand all guests in our party, likes and dislikes and developed a fab menu for us all. He cooked AMAZING food for us all, across all of the different choices made in the group. He was a terrific addition to our family meal, was unobtrusive as well as friendly , struck the perfect balance. He was great with everyone including the children in our group. Food was beautifully presented, clearly high end restaurant standard. He described all the food really well, which was locally sourced. He also gave some excellent advice on which wine to go best with which course. Absolutely faultless service from start to end and thoroughly recommend him!!

I was treated to a surprise incredible private dining experience from Flavour and Wine in our holiday apartment in St Ives. Rob produced a fabulous tasting menu, reflecting all our favourite things. He spend lots of time with us chatting over the food and cooking process, indulging our love of stretching our own culinary skills. The wine pairing was spot on and volume of food and drink was excellent value for money. This was a truly luxury experience and I would highly recommend it.
