About Olives & Canapés
After 12+ years, we have created many of menus for a wide range of occasions. Birthday celebrations, summer garden parties, university balls, elegant dinners, increasingly bowl food parties as they can give a more relaxed feel & menus can incorporate a range of cuisines (as for canapes). Company launches, christenings & weddings... With a focus on great tasting food nearly everything we create is 'homemade' & attention to detail is key. Our events are normally under 200 guests, except canapés where anything goes & we have provided up to 5000 on occasion.
Professional staffing can be an integral part of any event & we handpick ours where possible. Arranging equipment hire is often requested & we work with a few suppliers depending on the look feel & budget of the client.
Following food trends, we are enjoying dealing with more vegetarian & vegan requests. Some Thai, some Indian, some classic & Mexican & many other world cuisines.
What else? Some teaching for corporate events & food styling too.
We very much like to be flexible & work with the client as much or as little as they prefer.
From VIPs, private clients & corporate too.
Thanks very much to the team for the delicious food for 25 guests and great communication and flexibility before the booking. Would highly recommend! Lucy
Annabel and her waitresses were brilliant.
Excellent from start to finish
Very easy to work with. Canapes were delicious and received wonderful comments from guests. Would definitely hire Olives & Canapes again.
Annabel produced just what we wanted on the day!
We contracted Annabel to provide a two course lunch for 80 people at our annual regatta. We were not abel to provide great facilities, but Annabel coped admirably. Great feedback from clients who enjoyed the meal.
Delicious food, much commented on.
Olives and Canapés provided some delicious canapés and a simple tagine main course with salads. It all proved very popular and the only problem was that we actually ran out our some things at the end - probably more because our friends were greedy! Staff provided to serve and clear were friendly and efficient.
Excellent food, lovely staff, good communication!
Annabel provided us with a sense of relief and safely that my grandmothers funeral would be well catered for. Her staff were polite, the food was wonderful, and they were all so efficient. I couldn’t recommend this company more highly.
Top quality food served by a lovely lady!
Annabel was extremely charming, professional and flexible when planning our party. The food was excellent! All of our guests were very happy and so were we!
Annabel was super flexible and the food was a hit!
Annabel offered a wide range of affordable options for our group of ~20. She always made herself available to hop on the phone or send an email despite my hectic schedule. And in the day, she was on time, very professional and the food was excellent. One guest said the Aubergine freekeh & cashew nut mild spice tagine was the best they had ever had!
Annabel’s recipes are absolutely delicious, surprising and well balanced. We had a vegetarian menu with vegan options and all the ingredients were of high quality and used in great dish ideas every time.
Excellent service - just what I hoped for
Annabel responded to my enquiry about catering for my mother's funeral reception with very helpful thoughts and suggestions right from the start, and communication with her was quick and easy, The sandwiches, canapés and cakes she prepared were absolutely delicious; I had loads of really positive comments from guests. She and Chloe were very practical and helpful; arranging things where they needed to be, serving tea, wine and food to our 60+ guests and clearing up, all in a very relaxed and efficient way. It was all top quality and very relaxed; the experience could not have been better. I am sorry not to have pictures - the cakes were incredible. Everything was beautifully prepared - thank you Annabel!
