About Louisa Loasby

After leaving University graduating with a Business Degree, I attended The Grange in Somerset to learn how to cook. I had planned to work in the City however becoming aware after a year pursuing a life in London that it was not quite for me I soon came to the realisation that my real passion was for cooking, food and travel and decided that a career as a chef onboard private yachts was something that I really wanted to do. I made my way to Palma, Mallorca and got my first job and went on to spend 12 years as a chef onboard many yachts.

My years onboard were spent all over the world, across the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Pacific and Asia, for many different clientele and under many differing circumstances. Taking advantage of the many differing elements of each countries cuisine and always learning… no one day was the same. You could have a family of 8 an intimate dinner for 2 to a cocktail party and BBQ for 60 people.

I met my husband at sea and we went on to marry and run a boat called Kealoha together for a wonderful Californian family, it was after 3 years onboard we decided to have a family and that we would have to leave our yachting world behind to start a new life ashore, Oliver was born 2011 and Emilia followed in 2012. After requests from different families for private dinners I decided to set up as a personal chef, the service I provide is very personal and bespoke to each client.

Some of the yachts I've worked on.


I’m available for corporate lunches, dinners or cocktail parties.
Please check out my menus for some ideas and get in touch to discuss your requirements.


I can provide various options for children’s party food, with or without a theme or healthy and naughty options, colourful and vibrant treats and party bags. The options are endless and so I prefer to discuss each individual occasion by circumstance so please call me to discuss further.


I understand the amount of work that goes into looking after a yacht and therefore offer a provisioning and set up service for anyone coming to their yacht who would just like to turn the key and go… whether you would just like everything cleaned, laundered and the fridge filled or meals cooked a picnic sorted. This is a bespoke service so please give us a call and let us know what you would require we would do our best to arrange it for you.


There are so many special occasions, from wedding anniversaries, christenings, naming ceremonies as well as those big birthday landmarks, to popping the question or a romantic meal on Valentines Day for that special treat… if you are interested please call me and we can discuss exactly what you would like and go from there, there is no obligation.


I grew up in Northumberland close to the Scottish Borders and spent much of my early cooking jobs catering for shooting parties in the the lodges up in Scotland so am well aware of how one can build up an appetite on a days shoot. I can prepare anything from a hearty lunch to a picnic, tasty snacks for between drives or something smarter such as a three course meal for the evening dinner.


I can arrange for a buffet service for many occasions. Contact me to discuss you requirements.


Home Gourmet is designed to make life easier. If you would like a dinner made and delivered for you to finish off or just a few delicious treats for the fridge when times are busy, the options are again endless but here are some ideas. Whether it be part or in full or a mixture of the different ideas, we can discuss this further over the phone, in person or by email.


I understand that this can be a very difficult time and therefore I provide a service of either being there to take care of all the food needs or prepare and drop off whilst the ceremony is taking place. You can check out the buffets for some ideas or call me direct with what you are thinking of or how much you would like to spend and we can work out your catering needs from there.


I can provide a wide range of delicious Canapés.


A different option to compliment or replace the traditional wedding cake. Aselection of options are available at different prices please contact for more details.
