Services we provide
gourmetpopup is a business run by husband & wife team Felan & Laura Hennigan based in Twycross, Leicestershire.
Felan has a wealth of experience as a chef catering for all styles and levels of catering. His impressive CV features roles in small bespoke fine dining venues along with high volume, high quality executive chef roles in the Sports & Leisure sector of contract catering.
Laura had a late call to the catering trade through a family business where her cool but savvy head for business was a huge asset. She furthered these skills in event management and venue dressing and Laura’s eye for style and attention to detail mean nothing is left to chance in ensuring your event goes without a hitch.
gourmetpopup grew out of our own frustrations with lacklustre food in our own area as we moved further into the countryside. We found despite being surrounded by some of the nations best produce, there was little in the way of contemporary or stylish food being served. So began, gourmetpopup - a catering business with an aim was to bring quality local produce to community spaces such as village halls, schools any communal space at the heartbeat of the town or village life with the added bonus of providing your own alcohol. We aim to provide the best quality food and service to areas without the need for expensive taxis, exorbitantly priced alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks or the need to appoint a designated driver!
From little acorns.......after a few key events in our own local community, the business has grown purely by word of mouth and a little help from Facebook. We have now diversified into providing all styles of catering whilst keeping our passionate core ethos of local produce, contemporary style of food and service and a fully bespoke approach, we have catered for many private functions including dinner parties, cocktail parties and wakes.
Whatever your occasion, event, gathering, you can be assured of the best quality and service.
The whole experience with gourmetpopup was excellent from the first communication to our Family dinner on Saturday. Our grandson has serious allergies and Felan dealt with it in a very professional and caring way. The food and service on Saturday was amazing and the kitchen was spotless afterwards! Would thoroughly recommend them.
First class service
Gourmet Pop Up provided a delicious afternoon tea for our wedding reception. They helped us every step of the way with fantastic ideas and nothing was too much trouble. The afternoon ran so smoothly and the team worked tremendously hard to deliver a top class service. The food was delicious and plentiful. Would totally recommend Gourmet Pop Up and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
Excellent food, great service, would hire again!
Very good from start to finish, I.e. communication, helping plan menu, setting up, being flexible and then putting on a great show. Would hire again for another event.
Amazing party thanks to GourmetPopup!
We booked Gourmet pop up for my husbands 40th birthday party. This was to cater a 3 course menu for 30 people. Felan and Laura are such a great team. The menu was amazing, the presentation was perfect and it all tasted fantastic! Throughout the process they couldn’t do enough ... they sourced all the added extras we needed. We would highly recommend them to anyone who like us wanted to create a stunning dining experience in your own home. Thanks again GourmetPopUp! We will be in touch for the next party!
Amazing experience from Gourmet Pop Up.
From 1st contact I realised Felan and Laura would deliver an amazing culinary experience, and that’s just what they did!
Highly professional but friendly, lovely people who you feel totally at ease with, delivering top class service! Don’t shop around, take it from me you won’t have a better experience anywhere from anyone!
Thank you Gourmet Pop Up!
Amazing food and people!
Wow, what can I say. Gourmet pop up catered our wedding in August and we could not of hoped for anything better. From the tasting to the day, everything was perfect. The food and effort Felan and Laura went to was amazing, and admittedly when we had the tasting we were worried they wouldn’t be able to replicate how good it was for 80+ people but on the day they didn’t only replicate it they went above and beyond our expectations. The food was impeccable, for everyone, including vegetarians and those with allergies, and we are still being asked how they did the crispy poached egg! Not only was the food perfect but the help and support they gave us leading up to the big day was amazing. We could not recommend them enough! Thank you so much!
Exceeded our expectations Highly recommend
Engaged Gourmet Pop Up for a 50th birthday afternoon tea and the supply of the cake. Met Felon and Laura beforehand to discuss arrangement and at that stage we knew we had made the right choice On the actual tdate the arrived punctually and took over our kitchen producing an afternoon tea of the highest quality in an unobtrusive,yet very friendly manner. It was just as if we had invited a couple of friiends along to do all the work! The cake was superb and delicious and at the end of the event they cleared very thing away,washed up left everything tidy.....and mopped the kitchen floor!
I have no hesitation in highly recommending their service and wish them the increased success that they both deserve.
