A Taste of Our Food

Every meal I prepare begins with the finest ingredients, sourced locally where possible, with the delicious dishes you choose freshly home-made for your Wedding… or other Special Day!


Naturally, I’m open to your own suggestions, so if you would like something that’s not on any of the Menus you see here, I’ll be delighted to make that, just for you.


And you’re welcome to come to my home to meet, talk and taste the fine fare you can look forward to.
