Seeking private chef for in-home celebration meal, Co Antrim

Hi, my family will be renting a cottage in Bushmills, NI over the summer. We are looking for a private chef to come into the cottage and cook a special meal for an anniversary celebration. Does anyone have any ideas how we can connect with someone who can do this? We plan to ask the owner of the home if they have ideas, but other than that, we are stuck. If anyone has names of catering or chefs I'd appreciate the information. Thanks in advance!

TBH, most of the questions on TA could be got off Google, I think Annie was hoping for personal experience.

I googled this and could not find any local private chefs. Annie, if you get nowhere with your search I suggest contacting some major holiday rental agencies serving the neighbourhood, Causeway Coast Rentals for example, and see if they have people they recommend. This question must be asked from time to time. Alternatively approach the head of catering courses at the Northern Regional College in Ballymoney and see if they come up trumps.

I haven't really heard of this sort of service locally but some of the smaller scale local caterers might offer it.

I know portrush deli company had options for Valentine's day where they had food ready to be served so maybe try them. Castaway catering is a fairly new extension of Crusoe's coffee shop. They catered at a wedding I recently attended and food was very good. As they're new, they might still do some smaller scale stuff.

I have never used these folk but might be worth getting in touch with them.
