What is your most memorable wedding?
A 6 course tasting menu for 275 guests in a marquee battling every weather condition imaginable. We have also catered in a cave and in the Lincoln Cathedral, which are both majestic settings.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Caring, creative, colourful, fearless and flavourful
What about your business are you most proud of?
We created this business from nothing, with only our hard work, creativity and culinary talents. We are now in the top eight in the UK and have received so many lovely reviews from Brides and Grooms.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Relax and enjoy it! Time always flies so focus on celebrating your new marriage and spend quality time with your friends and family... accompanied by amazing food of course ;)
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One couple had hand-crafted and engraved wooden wedding rings!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
First we send couples our full brochure and price guide so that they can get some ideas. We would then check availability and answer questions by email before a general consultation in person or via Skype. After this meeting, Sam is able to create the perfect menu and quote. Once a deposit and booking has been made, we would then book in a tasting session to ensure that the couple are 100% happy with the food they have chosen. Then all they need to do is get married, live happily ever after and recommend us to all of their friends
How would you wow the judges on Masterchef?
Already did that!
What is the most innovative dish you have created for a wedding?
One of the best dishes we have created is our Butternut Rossini. It is an amazing dish because it is vegetarian, vegan, nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, celery-free, mustard-free and mollusc-free! With the rise in dietary requirements and vegans over the past five years, we really wanted to create something just as special than the meat alternative.
See Sam's cookbook for his collection of created recipes.
What is the food of love?
All food as long as you have a story or reason for it. Food is our first love and passion and cooking is mine!
Food is key in life and story telling, and has the ability to hold memories that we keep forever.
What is your secret ingredient?
Why have one secret ingredient when we can put a twist on every dish, making them exceptional and bringing them to life?
