About Home Cooking by Elizabeth

I am now celebrating 32 years as a caterer, this has been very rewarding period of my life, giving me great satisfaction knowing every event is special. I generally bespoke every menu and, often producing recipes personally for my clients. I am the main influence of all my catering events and will be seen back of house in my apron! I am supported by my husband Jon and daughters, Stefanie, Lucinda and Olivia who all have their own roles within the business. Lucinda works closely with me and has become a very important part of the business taking the next generation to a different level. She is an excellent cook, with a total natural ability giving great culinary artist flair.

Over the past years I have always kept food ideas and styles up to date, my basic technique of home style cooking or as a great friend of mine always says “cooking from the heart” and using the best possible ingredients has always been the key to our success. I am also mindful using and supporting local produce and businesses. I am very fortunate to live in Great Bookham in Surrey and there is a wealth of great suppliers, with excellent butchers, a fish monger, a bakery and a greengrocer all of which are family businesses who care. I am now proud to present our Show Room, which is in Great Bookham, where potential clients can visit us, see our portfolio and more importantly plan part or all of their special catering event, however big or small, everyone is individual and special to us.

Typical Clients

A Simple Country Style Wedding, Canape Party at St James's Palace, Musical Evening at Hatchlands Park, Medieval Banquet on the River at Wraysbury, High Profile Business Events, Vintage Tea Party Style Weddings & Birthday Party.

Fantastic Caterers

Fantastic service, Elizabeth sorted everything for my Mothers wake after just one phone call. Made everything painless and stress-free at a time when I was so busy with other things.
Afternoon tea was amazing, all homecooked cakes and lovely sandwiches, plenty of food to go round, we ordered for the same number of guests and it worked out almost exactly, hardly any left over and everyone well fed and full.
It all looked beautiful on the display stands and china cups and saucers. Better than I could have imagined.
They set the room and tables all up with tablclothes and provided glasses for our drinks and everything was included.
So pleased I chose this company, totally recommend to everyone and would definitely use them again.

Elizabeth was excellent and gave me lots of advice

I had invited 100 guests and we have a small house - even though we had a marquee in our postage sized garden. So we had canapés and bowl food and finished up with a large cheese table for guests to nibble on afterwards. There were lots of compliments on the food and not much left over.

Delicious food, delightful waitresses, great day

Elizabeth suggested a menu, we discussed the options, the price was right and everything arrived on the dot, the food table was set up for me and then guests were served by two delightful efficient staff. I am still receiving flower deliveries from my grateful guests. Thank you Elizabeth. The puddings were particularly fabulous. See the picture of the pavlova !!!

Absolutely brilliant service.

Absolutely brilliant service provided by Elizabeth. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her highly for anyone considering an event where you'd like a more home-cooking feel to the food. She gave me lots of advice on the phone beforehand about what might work best for us. She turned up early with her lovely assistant Sharon to set up, they were both totally professional yet warm & friendly during the entire event..... the food was delicious & they left the kitchen as spotless as they found it. Wish she could cater for us every weekend. Great job - many thanks. Nikki

Lovely food, friendly and very helpful staff

Finger buffet for a christening party. Elizabeth, the company owner was very efficient and responsive when booking the event and deciding what type of menu. The staff provided on the day were just fabulous, really friendly and helpful meaning that we could relax and enjoy the day without running around serving guests. It was the first time we've used caterers and we will definitely choose Elizabeth's company again.
