Want a top restaurant-quality dinner in the intimacy of your own home? Invite master chef Laszlo to your apartment where he will treat you to a bespoke gourmet experience where he will work his magic in your kitchen. In fact, we invited him to our home – it was delicious in a relaxed atmosphere. Laszlo is your private chef for luxury private dining in the Oslo area.
Private dinner parties are a fantastic way of spending quality time with your guests whilst enjoying the treat of fine dining. In our home, we were eight guests, thus, we assure you from first-hand experience, Laszlo can easily cater for dinner parties throughout the Oslo area with menus completely bespoke to your specific tastes and dietary requirements.
Luxury private dining
In collaboration with the host, he creates dishes using the highest quality, seasonal ingredients, offering something for every taste. He has become an expert on the food of many nationalities. He is happy to prepare them or help his clients to make them. He is also more than happy to give advice to those who have eating or health problems to enjoy cooking and eating again.
Since Lazlo is from Hungary, we decided to arrange a Hungarian dinner, where he prepared three dishes:
Starer: Ujhazi – chicken consommé
Main dish: Csáky – Beef roulades with wheat balls and paprika sauce
Dessert: Knödel (dumpling) – Hungarian cottage cheese with strawberry sauce.
We have all spent a delightful evening with not only exquisite food creations, but with plenty of great advices about how to optimize our time spent in the kitchen, and how to integrate seasonal ingredients into our everyday cooking habits. Consequently, we have already begun thinking about our next event.
Dinners for larger groups
However, small private dinner parties are just one option. What about jubilees, barbeques, business gatherings or weddings? Not forgetting kitchen and fridge optimization, cooking class for your family and business? Because, Laszlo will be there for you.
We also attended a community arrangement I Oslo. The district had received funds from the municipality to arrange 5 dinners for residents in one of the capital’s regions In connection with covid-19. Laszlo, together with executive chef at Galla Catering, Istvan Solberg, had created a typical Norwegian dinner:
Starter: Trout tartare with sour cream, lemon, caviar, salad and toast
Main dish: Veal roast with creamy sauce, thyme marinated potatoes and root vegetables
Dessert: “Peche melba” (Peaches, piece of cake and whipped cream).
Two of the guests, Siri Nylandrl and Rosemarie Kurt, living in the Skovheim Allsenter, where the event took place, had participated in three of the dinners and couldn’t praise the arrangement enough. An elderly lady from the area told us she felt like a queen, being picked up by a taxi from her residence, allowing her to attend a heavenly dinner and driven home again when it all was over.
Executive leader of Skovheim, Benthe Vik Andreassen, says she is grateful to have had the opportunity to create these dinner parties for groups of 50 people. “It has been very special and absolutely outstanding,” she says.
