A TOP York chef who closed both of his restaurants last year has announced his latest venture - hosting premium-priced private dinner parties at his customers' homes.

Josh Overington and his wife Victoria ran the Michelin-honoured Le Cochon Aveugle in Walmgate for nine years until its closure last November. Their sister outlet, the popular pizza and wine bar Cave du Cochon, closed last month.

At the time of closing , the couple said “this hasn’t been an easy decision to make but the time has come for us to look at some new opportunities which have come our way”.

The couple have just announced their new venture - Josh Overington at Home.

They broke the news on social media, telling fans that they could now book Josh and Victoria, who is a sommelier, to come to their home and cook an exclusive dinner for them and their guests. Prices are £125pp - with a minimum booking of four guests - for a six-course meal. Drinks are not included.
