Me at work in my kitchen


I offer private catering, from a small dinner party for friends, to a special event for hundreds. My cooking draws on Indonesian and other Asian cuisines, including Middle Eastern, with influences from Italy and other Mediterranean countries.

About Tanamerah

I can provide a full three-plus-course sit-down meal with waiter service; canapés for a drinks party—including bar staff if you need them; finger-food or bowl-food if you want to offer something more substantial to eat without getting into sitting guests down; a self-service buffet when you want to give your guests a proper meal, but without waiter service; the options are endless.

Like any passionate cook, my repertoire is expanding all the time, but it does tend to be heavily influenced by South-East Asian and Middle-Eastern food. Italian cuisine is never far from my thoughts either, nor that of other southern Mediterranean countries. I have vivid memories of outstanding and original meals in Istanbul, Lisbon, Bologna, Barcelona—even Copenhagen and St Petersburg. Fact is I love food with plenty of oomph, wherever it’s from, and that’s what I offer. I describe what I do as “cooking with ingredients that love sunshine, for people who love flavour”. I know that can make my food difficult to categorise, but I cook from the heart, not from a catalogue.

We can supply any tableware and glassware you might need: if we don’t have it ourselves we will hire it in. We provide serving dishes and any cooking equipment that is needed—up to and including a full catering kitchen for a marquee. If you need them we can also source tables and chairs and/or table linen.

Basically, if you want to be able to offer guests food and drink, whatever the number, we can offer whatever you need, from just the food, to the whole kit and, if you will, caboodle. Most of our work is within 20 miles of Haslemere—so Hampshire, West Sussex, Surrey— but I am doing more and more jobs in London.

Because of the way Tanamerah has developed, largely through word-of-mouth, the majority of our jobs are private affairs. But we have supplied our services to corporate clients too, and would be delighted to cater for a staff party, say, or a client reception.

Typical Clients

Most of my jobs are private parties for families and friends. From a sit-down dinner for 12 people, to a buffet celebration for 250. They might be birthdays, weddings, anniversaries—or just because it's summer!
