Clare was lovely , friendly and a brilliant cook and her team were all so lovely. The food was so delicious. The only feedback would be it would have been good to know at the beginning we needed to hire the serving bowls and plates etc
Amazingly delicious food and fabulous service too
I'm delighted by how fantastic the catering was for my party. Claire was brilliant at communicating beforehand, often at very short notice, and planned a wonderful menu for my joint 40th birthday celebrations on New Year's Eve. The food was truly first class - my guests congratulated me on finding the best canapé-maker in London! The main courses were delicious and nutritious, as well as being beautifully presented, and added a real note of sophistication to the evening. I heartily recommend Claire for any party catering needs as she's a splendid cook and a lovely person to deal with, as were the rest of her team.
