Full Description
As a family run business, our food is always made with passion and care whether we are at a street food market, festival or catering for a private event Our customers always notice the love that goes into producing our unique blend of flavours. We do this because we love to do this. As all of our rubs, marinades and sauces are made from scratch by us so we know exactly what goes into our food. It is these ingredients combined with our wood smoking process that gives our food the unique flavour that will keep you coming back for more. All of our meats and produce are locally sourced where possible, supporting local businesses and bringing the tastiest and freshest ingredients to you. “A recipe has no soul, you as the cook must bring soul to the recipe” – Thomas Keller.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Harp Gill
As a caterer who specialise in private events, weddings has to be our preferred. We love being involved in helping someone make their big day special, and to have our clients tell us that they appreciate and recognise that we put the same love into our food and service as they do in making their wedding one to remember, is a great feeling.

What is your most memorable wedding?

A small wedding or 70 people which was held in the grooms parents garden in marquee. A small but very intimate affair. We pulled out all the stops to ensure this was a great day and worked towards the tight budget the couple was on.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Slow Cooked, Unique, Flavoursome, From Scratch, Honest

What about your business are you most proud of?

All of our food, and sauces are made from scratch. They are unique, and flavours you are unlikely to find any where else.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan early, it will come round a lot quicker than you think. And keep your choices simple, too many options can confuse things so sometimes less can be more

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A beautifully written song by the grooms best man about the happy couple. Sang by himself.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The first stage is to establish a couple's budget, and then to discuss the theme of their wedding. Identifying any particular culinary likes and dislikes before putting together a menu and service to suit. We tend to invite couple's along to one of our public events also to sample the food, or alternatively we can bring a sample of foods along to their home.

How would you wow the judges on Masterchef?

A simple dish of served components that are designed to work perfectly and harmoniously together.

What is the most innovative dish you have created for a wedding?

A couple wanted a very stylish modern menu but incorporating traditional Indian flavours. Wed designed several canapés which perfectly fit the theme but in keeping with our wood smoked style of cooking. But the dish we were most proud of was a Spicy 16 hour smoked and hand pulled land which was served in fresh soft naan bread and with an accompanying mango and mint salsa and yoghurt sauce. This has now made in onto our main catering menu.

What is the food of love?

As Thomas Keller once said "a recipe has no soul, you as the cook must bring soul to the recipe".

What is your secret ingredient?

Love. As a child I asked my mother why her food tasted so good, she told me it was because she always added the secret ingredient of love!
