About Main Ingredient

Our food van menu is chicken based but we also offer our legendary fully loaded Aberdeen Angus cheeseburger & fries !

All our food is hand-made in our professional kitchen. We cater for festi weddings and any private or corporate parties. We have also served breakfast, lunch & dinner to film sets, game shoots and corporate days out.

We have served canapés boxes outside a church or houses in London where kitchens are too small to have the food prepared inside, Breakfasts for campers at festi-weddings or events, film shoot lunches on the beach or beautiful wedding boxes in the middle of a field.

If you have a party plan please call us and we will help you bring it to life. Sadly we do not have a wood-fired oven so we cannot provide pizzas. We offer a quick friendly service.

Typical Clients

We cater for all types of corporate event - breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner
Birthday bashes perfect for 18 and 21st too!
Festi - Feel weddings late night food, the day after the main event to make the most of the marquee!

Perfect for our event

The ladies were brilliant. Professional, organised, no fuss. They just got on with sorting themselves out. Served wonderful tasty food and packed away when it was over. The flavour and quality of the food itself was outstanding (we had dirty dog plus piri piri). Many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the dogs. We couldn't recommend them highly enough and will definitely book for future events. Thank you so much. Gary & Amanda.

Superb food for 40th birthday

Very friendly and helpful communication throughout the booking process. Arrived in plenty of time to get set up. Great looking van and couldn't have been more helpful on the day. When it was time for food, we had a long queue of people eager to try the fantastic food. All of our guests were very happy. I would definitely use Flip&Hoops again and can't recommend highly enough. Superb!

Fantastic service!

We asked Flip and Hoop to provide hot food for a joint family birthday party at our home, and they were marvellous! Lots of our guests remarked on the delicious food and discreet but efficient service from the waiting staff. They helped make our evening a memorable success! Thank you so much.

Delicious curries, friendly service, much enjoyed

Flip & Hoops, thank you for your delicious curries last night and for braving the field in the rain. Both dishes were so good and everyone loved them. Well done and thank you.

Great food, great service

Main Ingredient was a pleasure to work with. The menu choices were varied, it was simple to book, and they called 2 days before the event to check the spec was still the same.

On the day of the party, I had so much time because I didn't need to cook, it made all the prep much easier. Coq Au Van arrived about an hour before service, I plugged in 2 cables, and an hour later they opened the hatch to serve my guests (and even waited a couple of minutes for the last ones to arrive).

The food was delicious. We had green Thai curry and chicken burger and chips. I would say it's worth booking Coq Au Van for the chips alone but i could say that about everything we ate!

Clear up consisted of driving the van away! Easy!

Will book again.
