What is your most memorable wedding?
A savoury mushroom maceroon. The maceroon has the perfect balance of sweet, heat, savoury and hint of truffle which sent the guests wild. We also used moss, cork platters and dry ice to create a wild wood feel.

Look to make the day perfect for yourselves. You will not be able to please everyone, so let guests adapt to the day you both want.

My love is split between homely comfort food and fine dining. I combine the refined processes of fine dining with my love of big homely flavours to create dishes people will love.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Our customer feedback. We look to go the extra mile and when customers take the time to share or provide feedback it captures the whole reason of cooking for others.
How would you wow the judges on Masterchef?
We send our previously completed dishes to provide some inspiration. We confirm the facilities and any equipment limitations then look to find out the type of food you enjoy and style you have in mind for the wedding. We create you a proposed menu and then fine tune the menu to ensure it is perfect for the big day. Once you are happy to proceed, we take a deposit to confirm the date and then get back in touch prior to the wedding to confirm timings and action plan for the day.
What is the most innovative dish you have created for a wedding?
Friendly; Creative; Mouthwatering; Moreish; Stylish.
What is the food of love?
Joe & Lexi's Wedding Weekend. It was our 1st trip in Stanley with the challenge of driving down to Devon. The venue was perfect and we helped make the weekend memorable for guests with breakfast, canapes, the main wedding meal and following day BBQ. A lot of hard work and planning, but ultimately being part of such an amazing weekend and wedding made it all worth it.
