As chefs, we have been outside caterers for many years in the Shropshire/ Powys area, catering for both corporate and personal clients. This year we have restructured our existing company and developed a new commercial kitchen at home which offers us the facility to continue catering for your special events. In future our catering style will be more ‘al fresco’ and relaxed, but of the same high standard. Our ethos is, as always, to be flexible and work with our clients to create food that makes your important days memorable food experiences.
