I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful evening last weekend. The food was amazing – and was enjoyed by everyone. It’s a pity we couldn’t do it all justice as there seemed to be too much for our ‘small’ tummy’s to cope with!!

Giuseppe was truly amazing. Not only did he provide the most wonderful menu of fantastic food, he was also a great guy who really got into the spirit of the event and helped ensure that we had a memorable evening. Very highly recommended!!

I am very lucky to have witnessed gio’s skills and the beautiful food that he makes. I would honestly sell my soul to make food the way that he does. There is not enough money in the world to pay the guy that is fitting for his work. When I’m lucky enough to have a special occasion he is the first person that I will call as I know I will not be disappointed and my mind will be blown with his work. 12 out of 10

Benjamen G January 19, 2017


That was one of our best meals in our lifetime, me and my wife enjoyed every second. I cant describe feelings I got when I bite in that unique bread that brought me in my childhood, thanks one more time for that experience!

Jemma Cleminson – Hen Party

Hi Giuseppe!

I wanted to thank you again for your amazing dinner on Saturday. Organising a hen party can be busy and we were a bit overexcited during the evening, but you were so engaging, fun, and enthusiastic also! Despite our (very) small and ill-equipped kitchen, you cooked up a storm and served us the best dinner ever! Every plate and dish was a wonderful surprise, and every mouthful was delicious! My only regret is that we could not fit all the food in our stomachs but we enjoyed the leftovers the next day. Your food is beautifully presented, fresh, tasty, and true to your Italian roots. Every single person there (all fourteen) was so impressed by the quality, quantity, and variety, of the food, and let's not forget the fresh homemade strawberry vodka cocktail during the canapes! I cannot recommend you highly enough, and I will certainly be in touch again for future events.
All the best

Comment: I was 60 on Saturday 14th May and my wife Kate's birthday was on the 16th so I was looking for a very special meal but we had hired a cottage in The Cheviot Hills miles from anywhere and we didn't want to drive - the answer was to hire Giusseppe !! Never had a personal chef before but what an experience !!! Saying the food was amazing does not do it justice it was much better than that - the canopies, the lamb risotto, the butternut squash soup with butternut crisps and homemade croutons, the ricotto and spinach ravioli, the lamb balatine with baked beatrout, the halibut with herb crust, the lamb with apricot, date and fig sauce were all superb (with Giusseppe's home made grissini / assorted breads) and his homemade icecream was the best we have ever tasted. We couldn't manage the Creme Brule and Crepe suzette with orange sauce as we were fit to burst but they still tasted lovely the next day.
But more than that Giusseppe's company and his infectious enthusiasm for cooking made the whole experience unforgettable. And the fact that he drove 140 miles round trip to do this for us - priceless. I would recommend Giuseppe to anyone who wants the most wonderful meal with the bonus of his company.

Now all we have to do is lose the weight we put on eating all those wonderful courses.

Hi Giuseppe

The Waterson family wish to say a big thank you to you for the meal you prepared for Derek's 60th birthday.  It was absolutely fantastic and they especially enjoyed your company and enthusiasm in preparing the meal.  Our son in law was really grateful for hints and recipes, they said it was the best food they had ever eaten.  Off course we cannot forget the beautiful birthday cake which was to die for.  We certainly will have no problem recommending your services to other people in the future.

We would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and every success for your business in the future.

Best Wishes
Shirley Waterson & family.

Caitlin Ross Buffet Party

Caitlin Ross
Giuseppe is an amazing chef! He catered for a friends birthday where there was any thing to eat  -we arrived a little bit late but Giuseppe managed to serve hot food all the time through.  The food he cooked was spectacular, and he served many differents dishes from salmon to chicken breast, sole and chorizo , hand made tagliatelle, hand made ravioli, with many different sauces... It was a buffet style! For the chicken, he used the sous vide method, and I never taste a chicken so juicy and soft.The sole was baked in the oven with herbs and chorizo, a combination of flavor very nice. There was a huge variety of delicious food to suit everyone's tastes. He prepared the dishes and served to the buffet and through our friends too. At the end he leaves the kitchen spotless,  I would definitely recommend his services 🙂

★ WOW!!! I hired Giuseppe to prepare a meal for my Dad's 70th in our home. It was fantastic. The food was absolutely delicious and there was so much of it! We had to opt to not have the starters as we were quite full after all the great canapes (which were more like starters!) and wanted to have room for the main course and 2 desserts. Not a problem to Giuseppe-he kindly agreed to put the starters in the fridge for us to have tomorrow, along with lots of other food which was left over- we are not even going to have to cook today as there is so much food from Giuseppe!

Everything was beautifully presented and freshly prepared. Best creme brulee I have ever tasted! Giuseppe was very friendly and obviously loves what he is doing. My family all had a great evening.

I would highly recommend Giuseppe to anyone looking for a chef and will be telling all my friends about him. Thank you!!!

Carlo Marengo Audio-philia

3 weeks ago

We asked Giuseppe to cater for our high-end hi-fi shop opening day (Audio-philia in Edinburgh) and what a fantastic job he did. The food was delicious and almost as good to look at as to eat, and the presentation was unusual and beautiful (canapes presented on large, ornate mirrors, for example). He even made fresh ice cream on demand! From start to finish Giuseppe did a very professional job, setting up quickly and clearing up just as quickly afterwards. He oozed enthusiasm and friendliness and made a big impression with all of our guests, many of whom took his contact details. We will definitely use Giuseppe for future events and warmly recommend him to others.

Ashley Hamill happy birthday

Ashley Hamill  Feb 2017

This is the 2nd time I have had the pleasure of Giuseppe's cooking and I cannot recommend him enough! My husband hired him to cater a private meal for my 30th after he provided such a fantastic service at a friends wedding a few months ago and once again he didn't disappoint. Giuseppe's food is 5 star all the way and he is so flexible and ensures that he caters to everyone's needs. I have never tried food so fresh and delicious any restaurant that I have visited and it helps that Giuseppe is such a lovely person. I would encourage anyone looking for a private chef to contact him and I look forward to the next event that we have with Giuseppe. Thank you for making my special day even more special, Ashley and Robert Kerr x

Above and beyond
Giuseppe has cooked for us on a number of occasions now - not only he is completely passionate about his craft and good food but he consistently goes above and beyond. Everything is fresh and handmade and his love of quality food and flavours shine through in his dishes. I can't recommend him highly enough

Giuseppe was so easy to deal with beforehand, always promptly answering emails or calls. He amended our menu to suit our needs and it was out of this world. He was so unobtrusive but friendly at the same time. The cocktails were unexpected and fab and the whole evening was made super special. A lovely chef, thank you, it was perfect.

 November 2017

Giuseppe prepared a banquet for eighteen of my family and friends. It was amazing. Every guest without exception commented on how delicious the massive array of courses tasted and how they had never experienced anything like it before! Even the vegetarians said that they had never tasted vegetarian food of such a high standard and all of them asked for him for his recipes. Giuseppe has a wonderful personality, he is friendly, open and is truly passionate about his amazing creations. He prepares everything, from scratch on the day, in your own kitchen and he even serves the food as well. He served us canapes with a selection of freshly juiced fruit and vegetable cocktails, wine, champagne, teas and coffees, before dinner, then a fabulous seven-course banquet with delicious homemade puddings and freshly ground coffee. Everything created on the day in our own kitchen - amazing! He even washes the pans & dishes, cleans the kitchen, mops the floor and leaves everything as he found it. He is an invaluable asset if you are having a dinner party, celebrating a special occasion, holding an event or entertaining business clients. We found his fee very reasonable, especially as he travelled from Edinburgh to Dumcrieff (some 50 miles) early in the morning, worked all day preparing and serving all courses and then drove back late at night. I can thoroughly recommend Giuseppe Manzoli and will always be happy to employ his services at all my properties, both for family events and for entertaining business clients.

Private chef hire

Mairi MacKay

Giuseppe catered for a dinner for a 50th birthday celebration at a holiday rental and from the moment he arrived the kitchen was a flurry of activity! Within minutes we were sampling tasters and the evening just got better and better😁
Giuseppe's ability to put as at our ease, produce fabulous food as well as a beautiful environment for our cocktails and canapes🥂🍹🍸 As for our meal, well words really can't adequately describe the sublime courses that sped out of the kitchen - in fact we were struggling to get through all the courses and Giuseppe ended up providing enough food for the following day too!
Not only did Giuseppe work wonders in the kitchen, he left the place sparkling and even cleared away the refuse!
We can't recommend Giuseppe highly enough and whenever any of our group have the opportunity to have a catered event in the future, there's only one chef we will call on. Thank you, Giuseppe, for a wonderful evening!❤️

Funeral Lunch Organised In Edinburgh

Dear Giuseppe,
I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful food and service you provided for the funeral reception I held in my flat.
There was such a range of utterly delicious food that was so clearly fresh and homemade that my guests were astonished and delighted. I cannot say which dishes were our favourites because we all had our own choices. I must say that I am looking forward to trying out some I did not actually have on Tuesday, but which you thoughtfully packed away for my freezer. All agreed that my late husband, Iain, would have loved it. As someone who hated paper plates and plastic cutlery, he would also have appreciated your proper cutlery and crockery, including the bone China cups.
Everyone was also so impressed with how hard-working, sensitive, discreet and resourceful you and your assistant were. You recognized that I needed to concentrate on my guests, and you simply got on with what had to be done. I also have to say that my flat was tidier and cleaner after you left than it normally is.
Tuesday was a very sad day, but you brought some joy into it and reminded me that when I am no longer in mourning I need to get back to Italy, my favourite country in the world - and Iain’s.
You provide exceptional service and I wish you every success in your business.
Best wishes,

Catering for 3 full days at Toftcombs house in Biggar

Mrs Sarah Hamirani ( from America)

So good to hear from you!!! Thanks so much for thinking of us and for sharing your video.
I watched the whole thing and its 3 pm on Friday and I am so wishing that you were with us right now to enjoy your delicious mojito!
Zoey is doing great, often she will come up to me and ask "Mama, where is Chef Seppe? Can you tell him to come to my house?" 🙂
We miss you and hope you are doing well in Scotland. The owners of ToftCombs were hard to reach even when we were planning our stay. But please have any prospective clients reach out to me if they need a recommendation.
I am going to share your video with the entire family, everyone is asking me how we will have such a memorable family reunion next time if it is not in Scotland because you played such a big role in making it happen.
I hope you are doing well !

Private Dinner Hire chef
Mark Blount
Giuseppe came down to Dumfries to cater for a party of 14 for us. It’s difficult to describe how good it was, you kind of run out of superlatives. He prepared canapes, starters, main and desserts and they all were delicious. He has a great personality and his passion for food shines through. He explains about the food as he is preparing it and our guests loved it. I would not hesitate in recommending him for any event where you need catering. Top Man, Top Chef
