When we cater for Dinner parties, we like to really push the boat out, and provide a fantastic feast, complete with canapes, Starter, Main course and Dessert, coffee with petit fours and a cheese course.

We use the best ingredients, locally sourced where possible, cooked with care and skill by one of our highly skilled chefs. We believe that if you’re having a chef come and cook in your home, then it should be a really memorable luxurious experience.
