About Me

In 1988 I opened and successfully ran a bistro in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire for 18 years, providing good home cooking with excellent service to my customers. When I sold the bistro my love of cooking remained and I started my own outside catering business.

I pride myself on providing good value for money without compromising on quality or freshness. I source ingredients locally where possible. Great customer care is at the top of my list, and I enjoy nothing better than seeing people enjoying my home-cooked food.

I have all relevant certificates including current hygiene certificate, first aid and public liability insurance.

My Prices

Each menu has an indication of price, but I will always provide you with a full quote prior to your event once I have personally discussed and understood your full requirements.

Please note I do not charge VAT
