Food made for sharing and celebrating
From delicious sprawling platters and buffet-style spreads to big beautiful salads and delicate canapés, we create food that is made for sharing and celebrating.
This is food for people who want to embrace life in all its fullness and celebrate their family, whatever form that takes. It’s generous, joyful, and delicious. It’s about eating and sharing an experience together; laughing, playing, and enjoying beautiful food as the backdrop to life’s best moments.
Our passion is for providing soul and soil-enriching food for your celebrations – that means working with local farmers and producers who respect the environment, and using seasonal ingredients when they are abundant and their flavours are at their peak.
Our food is prepared by us and delivered to your home, place of work, or other venue with simple instructions for finishing and serving the food yourself. It’s hassle-free entertaining so that you can enjoy the celebrations to the fullest extent. We take on a limited number of hosted catering events each year where we provide our full ‘feast’ experience at your home or venue – taking care of all of the cooking, serving and styling for you.

What food can we expect?
We create our menus around what is abundant locally at that time of year. In the summer it will be big vibrant salads and fresh dishes; think rainbows of tomatoes, sun-ripened strawberries, freshly podded peas and fragrant peaches. In the autumn and winter you can expect heartier and more warming dishes with root vegetables, deep-orange squashes and pumpkins, apples and pears.
We specialise in food that is made for sharing and celebrating; sprawling platters and buffet style spreads, as well as delicate canapés.
We’re inspired by chefs like Yotam Ottolenghi, Anna Jones and Diana Henry so you can expect vibrant flavours whether in big sharing plates or a refined five course feast.
What if I have a dietary requirement?
We are experienced at creating menus for a range of requirements including vegetarian, vegan, paleo, dairy-free, gluten-free etc. – please let us know at the time of booking.
If you have an allergy then unfortunately our events may not be suitable for you as we use different venues and kitchens and can’t guarantee that our food won’t come into contact with nuts and other ingredients. Please email us if you would like more information.
