PRIVATE CHEF & CATERER
Specialities Include: Mediterranean | Asia | Tapas | Prices start from €27.50 per head
After a successful career in the UK and Canada, my husband and I moved to Spain to follow our passion for great food and wine and opened a tapas restaurant on the Costa Blanca. Following the success of that first venture we went on to open another restaurant specialising in plant based food. Now having sold both restaurants and looking for a slightly less hectic life we have started a small bespoke catering and private dining company.
I have a passion for all types of cuisine having travelled extensively but particularly enjoy cooking foods from Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean. I have lots of experience in cooking both meat and fish dishes but also enjoy preparing tasty and flavourful vegan and vegetarian food. If you are looking for someone to cater an intimate dining experience at your villa or cater a small event where the food is all homemade using excellent local ingredients, then you will not be disappointed with our services. We have sample menus available but are more than happy to create bespoke menus based on your guests’ preferences.
So, whether you want a three course meal, canapés & cocktails, an evening of wine and cheese, a casual BBQ lunch or dinner by the pool we have options to suit all budgets so please contact us and we will quickly respond with menu options and competitive pricing.

My passion is food!!!
Mark has an incredible passion for food and has spent 20 years within the 5* Michelin market gaining exceptional experience over the years in establishments that include The Savoy, The Waldorf and Cliveden, as well as working in Africa and Thailand. He is classically French trained, but also incorporates modern European influences into his dishes, bringing a ‘cutting edge’ to his food. His lifelong passion for food comes from his grandparents, who grew spectacular fruit and veg in their garden,and made wonderful cakes, jams and pickles. He moved to Spain 10 years ago looking for a more consistent work/life balance, and is a true asset to Step One.
My passion for food came from my grandparents, spending my weekends with my grandfather in his spectacular fruit and vegetable gardens and watching my grandmother baking wonderful cakes and biscuits, preparing jams, marmalade and pickles.
I worked from the early age of 13 within The Savoy group of hotels and after completing my city and guilds I went to London and joined the Savoy Hotel itself. I spent the next 20 years within the 5* Michelin market, spending a number of years in Africa, Thailand and finally made the move to Spain 10 years ago, in search of a more consistent work/life balance…
Experience and knowledge is my greatest asset. Continued positive growth is a necessity and I am committed to two things, great food and outstanding service. The key is to stay current on culinary trends and bring a cutting edge to my food. Having the freedom to be creative and take risks, only then will my food evolve, trying new techniques and learning all that I can.

Lee was born with food and passion in his blood, being from Spanish heritage he was taught the meaning of food, family and tradition at an early age.
He studied both Culinary Arts and Pastry & Baking Arts, working alongside Michelin star chefs gaining valuable knowledge and techniques. After 18 years in the leisure and hospitality industry Lee decided that his passion for cooking, learning new techniques and recipes from various cultures and continents was where he wanted to be.
Lee traveled around the world, meeting the locals and mastering the tastes and flavours of the country he was in, fueling his passion for regional, authentic cuisine. Fusion cuisine combines the elements of different culinary traditions originating from different countries, regions and cultures from every continent.
During 2002 Lee opened his first Restaurant Wine Bar, using the knowledge he had learnt during his travels he was able to give something back. A unique concept with no menu, just a list of everything he had bought that day, fresh from local producers or markets. Lee’s ideology was simple, you choose your ingredients from the list and we create your menu, bringing you a taste of the world on to your plate.
In 2011 Lee moved to Spain with his family and have created a unique Catering Company and Cookery School. Nutrition plays a big part in the menu creation; food is the fuel for your mind, body and soul. Fresh is best, using seasonal local produce, sourced free range proteins and fresh grown vegetables is part of every Creative menu they deliver. Keeping his ideology, Lee and his team create bespoke cuisine tailor-made for every client. Spending time with them and gathering as much information as he can, their background, likes, dislikes, favourite foods, places and lots more. Only then the menu is created to take you back to those favourite moments, tastes, places creating the food experience you’ll never forget.
Our menus reflect our clients desires, a blank canvas where we become the artist adding colour, creating tastes and vibrant flavours, the ultimate dining experience.
Lee and his team will cater for any event, no matter how many people or occasion. The ideology and professionalism remains the same.
