Outside Catering across the South of England

We can bring a taste of Dorset and the South West to any event, function or Wedding – from the far tip of Cornwall, to London and the Home Counties.

The South West of England is famed for its wealth of fine produce and suppliers – from the freshest fish and meat, to a variety of cheeses, fruit and vegetables as well as well known vineyards and breweries, we really are fortunate to be based in this area. Our sample menus are inspired by this and we always guarantee to source as much of our ingredients as possible from our region.

With our kitchen close to the border of Somerset and Wiltshire and only a few miles from the A303 – we are ideally suited to bringing you a ‘taste of the westcountry’ to your next event.

We cater all over the South West un to London. We also do a lot of work around Sandbanks, Branksome Park and Canford Cliffs, delivering impeccable food and service for high net worth clients.

Weddings, Parties, Events, why us?

Well things are getting very busy here now and lots going on, we have functions to cater for in Surrey, Wiltshire, London, Hampshire, Devon, Somerset and Berkshire. I am working very closely with Symondsbury estates managing their food operation and taking care of all functions and weddings.  I am the sole caterer for the estate for any catering booking from now.  I am very pleased to be working with the great team there are look forward to help pushing the estate forward.  This is a fantastic place to hold your wedding, in fact function of any nature we can help.  We have just had a very busy weekend and looking forward things are getting even busier.  We are one of the top caterers for weddings and events based in Dorset, although we are a small company at present we can compete with the big boys, our ideas are modern, our food fresh and locally sourced where possible.

All menus are discussed with the client giving them what they are looking for at a price to compete with other caterers in Dorset and the surrounding counties.  We put major emphasis on the look of the food and the way it is presented and this is where we are leagues above our competition. Forget catering awards!! They mean nothing, we will offer a free tasting and you can make your own choice on caterer.  With a Michelin Star background and having worked at some fantastic hotels and restaurants both in England and abroad, my food speaks for itself.  I take great care in everything i produce and have very high standards.

Food Trends and weddings

Well its been a while since my last post as i have been away in Italy, however i am back now and highly motivated.. Food trends seem to change all the time, however some things which are going to be a big part of this year are BBQ’s.  More and more people are having them and a lot for weddings, they are definitley in right now, it doesn’t matter that its not spring or even summer people are after the great taste and social event that bbq’s are. We have a new bbq menu for this year mentioned in one of my previous posts, however it will be up on the site very soon.

If you fancy a wedding with a difference, how about a festival wedding!  Everything in the style of a festival, it keeps the cost down and you can certainly make it your own.  If you would like more ideas and info about this you can contact me directly.

Happy New Year

Not long now until the New Year 2014 is upon us, things have been manic over the past few months and business is looking good for next year.  We are running a cookery school for all levels wanting to learn skills from basic soup preparation and stews to chocolate work, butchery and fine dining dinner party planning, lessons are either one to one or group based to a maximum of 6 people where you would be set to work in groups.  My kitchen is based in the heart of the Dorset countryside and a lovely walk and picnic lunch would be a part of the day.  Lessons are based either on a 3-4 hour set or courses also available.  All pricing is available upon request.

Working closely with Hamwood Crafts we use fantastic wooden boards to lay out our food for buffets and weddings, sharing platters are a big thing at the moment and these wooden platters allow us to offer just that, but giving it that visual edge.  My food is not over complicated but allows the fantastic produce to speak for itself, I have a passion for what I do and this shows in the final offering, prices are very competitive, so in the New Year give us a try, you won’t be disappointed……..
