Bernice Kariuki: Kenyan Chef Quits As Arsenal First-Team Private Chef

Bernice Kariuki has called it quits at Arsenal where she worked as a private chef.

Under her 2-year-stint at the English club, she prepared meals for the first-team players, the management team and the club’s technical bench.

Kariuki announced her departure from the club in an update on her social media platforms on Sunday, May 28.

She thanked the football for the opportunity to serve in the capacity, adding that the 2022/23 season was special to Arsenal.

“A final day flourish. Finished the season with a bang! Simply the best! 2020/2023 the best special season ever I hang my gloves as a very proud chef it’s been a honour working for the best club in the whole world. I was truly humbled,” Kariuki wrote.

Although she did not reveal her next move, thanked Kenyans for their support over the years.

“More blessings in my next job. It’s been like a royal dream, truly humbled. Thank you, especially my country Kenya,” Kariuki added.

Kariuki was born and brought up in Jericho, Eastlands in Nairobi City.

She studied culinary Arts training at Westminster Kingsway College in London after leaving Kenya to pursue a career she had a deep passion for.

After completing her course, she went into practice, and as of 2021, she had worked for some of the world’s biggest hotels and iconic restaurants in the United Kingdom.

Her portfolio boasts of being a private chef in The Dorchester in London, a five-star hotel renowned for its cuisine, top-rated accommodation and exquisite spaces for meetings and events.

Kariuki worked at the hotel as a private chef before she joined The Lanesborough, another five-star hotel with fine dining and luxury suites for its clients.

She has also been a private chef at The Waldorf Hilton London, a luxury hotel in Covent Garden built in the 1800s. 

Kariuki later joined Arsenal, working under Darren Taylor, the club’s Executive Chef. 

“A girl from the ghetto Jericho living nothing but her dreams. May I reintroduce myself as Arsenal’s first-team private chef,” she said
