Rob was fantastic. We had such an amazing evening and the food was incredible. He had a personalised menu printed and best of all, the kitchen was spotless at the end of the night (including dish washer on!) so we had nothing else to do. A very special evening made even more special by Flavour and Wine. We can't thank you enough

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.
A little bit about us.
Our goal at Flavour & Wine is to deliver a bespoke private dining experience utilising the finest Cornish produce to create some of your favourite dishes in a way you have never experienced before.
Private chef experience
Our relaxed private chef experience allows you to get together with friends and family to enjoy a unique dining experience with a range of delicious dishes enhanced with the option of wine pairings.
Group wine-tasting experience
We offer a group wine-tasting experience, often paired alongside one of our five-course tasting menus. But it is not restricted to.
The wine tasting is very different from the wine pairing; our wine tastings are interesting and educational, offering an in-depth insight into where each wine is from, how and where the fruits are grown and how it is produced, highlighting the different techniques used to achieve the flavours.
Events & wedding catering
We are proud to collaborate with the team at 'The Brewhouse', home of the St Ives Brewery, located in St Ives, Cornwall. This beautiful space has a bar, facilities, and plenty of parking to accommodate your guests.
In addition, the guys at the Brewhouse have recently opened up a new location in Hayle. ‘The Taproom,’ Where we look forward to holding many
pop-ups and events.
Creator of Flavour and Wine
“The idea for Flavour and Wine came shortly after the first Covid lockdown when social entertainment seemed like a distant memory. I felt a strong desire to get people back together again; what better way than sharing food and wine together, with your friends and family.
Being a father of two young girls, I yearned to spend more time with them, with this being highlighted more so by the lockdowns. This, for me, was the perfect time to start a new culinary adventure.,
Cooking has been my life long passion, and have spent thirty years building my career in kitchens across the UK and Australia. I have had the privilege of cooking in some fantastic places including, Thailand & India.
Before the launch of Flavour & Wine, I enjoyed much of my career in some fantastic award-winning restaurants in the bustling seaside village of St Ives, Cornwall, including the fabulous Porthminster Beach Café and sister restaurant, The Porthgwidden Beach Café, Where I built a great reputation, and annually claiming a mention in the Michelin Guide."
