About Our Chef Agency



Cook 2 Go – Your Local Chef Agency



Cook to Go is no ordinary Chef Agency! We know that a Chef Agency is only as good as the Chefs it sends you. Dorset’s leading specialist professional Chef Agency, based in Poole, Cook 2 Go has a reputation for providing only the best Relief Chefs to the Hospitality and Catering Trade that is second to none. It is our high standards that make Cook 2 Go different.

The first difference you’ll notice is the trouble we take to understand your business so that we can match the right Relief Chef to your situation. At Cook 2 Go we are well aware that the reputation of your business is in our hands. We are the Chef Agency that really does take that responsibility seriously. With a Relief Chef from Cook 2 Go your reputation is safe!

The concept of Cook 2 Go evolved after years of experience working in Restaurants and Hotels throughout the UK, frequently dealing with Agency Chefs who “just made up the numbers” and whose only concern was the wage they would receive. Often they took little or no pride in their work. I have had many years experience as a Head Chef in top Restaurants and when using Agency Chefs I have been shocked to see the poor quality of the staff provided by many Agencies.

Do you really want staff, even temporary staff, who couldn’t care less about your reputation and can’t wait to get out of the door at the end of their shift? No, of course you don’t and neither does Cook 2 Go! We select our personnel carefully to avoid such people. I have worked as an Agency Chef and that experience has proved invaluable in the selection process.


We are proud to be different to the average Chef Agency in a number of ways:

  • We take the trouble to understand your style of service, menus and the standards you expect from employees
  • We take on only the best Relief Chefs with a range of skills to suit all types of establishments
  • We pay above the average local Agency wages to attract the high caliber of dedicated staff our clients seek, whilst still remaining highly competitive in the rates we charge.
  • The result is your temporary staff costs are lower and you have the benefit of staff being paid a fair wage for a job they remain passionate about so that your high standards are maintained.


It is Cook 2 Go’s work ethic, passion and transparency as a Company that set us apart from other Agencies in the area. All our experienced, highly professional Chefs share those principles. Many specialise in particular cuisines and styles of catering so we can match the Chef to the business. We are accustomed to providing the perfect solution at very short notice!


When you need quality Hospitality staff, temporary or permanent, do not settle for second best. Call or Email Cook 2 Go, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
