Wild In The Pantry is a 'Cook With The Chef' and Personal Chef business run by myself, qualified chef Frank Boddy, based in the village of Colne, near St Ives, Cambridgeshire. I offer a range of options to help you, all at your home, from one-to-one personal cookery tuition with yourself and maybe some friends, to your own personal in-house chef for the night. Although I'm focussed around St Ives, Huntingdon, Peterborough and Cambridge,  I'm happy to travel to your home or holiday home within a 1 1/2 hour radius.

GIFT VOUCHERS I also offer gift vouchers for any amount for
'Cook With The Chef' and Personal Chef services. It could be the answer to your dilemma of what to give the person who has everything!
Why did I call my business Wild In The Pantry? Because I believe that cooking should be fun, creative, dynamic, experimental and absorbing. Making mistakes is part of learning. Putting together ingredients in a way that nobody has ever done before is the most exciting thing you can do with your clothes on.

Click the links at the top to get an idea of the services I offer, and to see a range of menus for you to choose from. Or use them to get your imagination going - they are just a guide - I am very happy to put together cookery coaching sessions and menus based on your own personal preferences and requirements. The most important thing I have discovered so far is that every client is unique, and I will always try to make sure that's the way it stays.

The photos of food on this website are taken by myself, of food I have cooked.
Portraits were taken by Abe at Riverside Photography (Rotherham).
Action shots on this page (and one or two other shots on the site) were taken by Alistair Grant at Bokeh Photographic (Needingworth, Cambridgeshire).

Oh yes, and before you ask, the name Wild In The Pantry is a play on the Bow Wow Wow song 'Go Wild In The Country' from 1981 (see below). That's frighteningly now over 30 years ago.
