Hosted by Tom

Verified host
I'm a self-taught chef who learned all about hosting first hand at our family run restaurant in the Swiss Alps. I'm also a trained helicopter pilot and incorrigeable adventurer with a deep and life long love for Africa where I still still spend a lot of my time. My wife is a handbag and interior designer and we both have a passion for travelling and love cooking and meeting new people. We sharpened our hosting skills trough the planning of numerous events but strictly by focusing on out of the ordinary events e.g. with a beautiful smiling trapeze artist pouring champagne whilst suspended in mid air whilst mouth watering canapés are offered continuously or wonderful Swiss themed fondue dinner parties with authentic Swiss folk music and fine wines to match the classical Swiss cheese fondue prepared with the finest Swiss alpine cheeses. There is something deeply sociable and fun about sitting in a group around a table sharing a lovingly prepared fondue. Tom works as a private Chef in London and runs his gourmet food business "The London Fondue Club". In 2020, Tom applied for MasterChef and cooked his signature dish "Coq an Vin" for the judges, which passed the first initial stage of the application. This dish was found on the menu at his old family restaurant in the Valais is Switzerland, and is the start of the showe on Tom's dinner party menu... you are in for a real treat! The duo love entertaining and look forward to welcoming you to one of their famous dinner parties soon! Santé, et bon appétit!

We had a fantastic evening with Daniela and Tom. The setting is great (we like wacky!) the food was fabulous and there was so much of it... we were bursting at the seams! The other diners were wonderful company. We all chatted, ate and drank for hours. Tom and Daniela were the best hosts you could choose. 10/10 on all levels. We can’t recommend highly enough.

My partner and I had the most wonderful evening with Tom and Daniela. They were the most gracious hosts and the space is an absolute gem. You are in for a real treat with this dinner - and you won't be short on conversation topics once you see the setting and wonderful spread on the table! As a fellow Swiss, I can also vouch for the quality of the fondue - home cooked and top-notch! A must-do while in London.

I wanted to provide feedback on the Swiss Fondue dinner I attended 2 weeks ago at Daniela de Montby’s handbag store in Chelsea. First of all, I was on holiday from Chicago and visited her shop and heard about the event. Attending this meal with her and other people was an amazing evening! The Swiss fondue was authentic and so delicious and well presented. The wine was perfect and the conversation and ambiance was so memorable. Thank you very much! 5 stars from me and I’ll be back soon!

We planned out trip to London for weeks and this time we wanted to do something differently other then visiting usual tourist landmarks. We are, sort of say "food snob" so we usually do not eat in hotel but like to experience new flavours in local restaurants. Also, we like the meet new interesting people but usually couple of days in London is to short time to do this. Luckily we stumble on this site and this offer! The first thing that attracted me were the gorgeous pictures of the venue set up in creative and unique style. You could see the people are not just there to eat but also to mingle, enjoy and have fun. And this is exactly what happen to us in these few hours! There was 14 people around the table coming from all over the world, who we meet for the first time, still all of them were in chatty and open for conversation. The food and drinks were amazing! We made few toast for the chef who joined us as host later during the night. We connected with both hosts and for sure we will be coming again!
