This is just to say thank you so much for cooking for us all the week before last. You got absolutely full marks from everyone including – or should I say, particularly – the vegetarians. They all want to go back to the house again soon but insist on you being part of the deal!
I hope your business continues to thrive (why wouldn’t it?) and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to absolutely anyone.
Very best and thanks again,

Abbey and I would like to sincerely thank you for the wonderful food you prepared for our wedding on 6 July. It was just sensational, and way above expectations. I had extremely positive feedback from just about everyone who attended. I would love your recipe for the roast pork!

“Claire has cooked for big groups of family and friends for me on several occasions. She has looked after us for several weeks, and also catered my 50th birthday party, which was a 3 course meal for around 45 people.
She is a great cook – using local, fresh ingredients to create delicious and healthy meals. She is also extremely efficient – both in terms of her work rate and her use (and re-use) of ingredients, wasting nothing. But most important of all, she is great to have around. She is very practical, nothing is too much trouble and very pleasant, interesting and friendly. I highly recommend her, and would take her on all our family holidays if I could!”
“If it’s ever useful, we would be happy to provide a glowing reference for you. Not only was the meal delicious and exactly the style we were looking for, but also I don’t think we could have made it through the event without you and your team.”

“Claire cooked for us last summer and we loved it so much she is coming back again this summer! Claire is a very natural cook who produces delicious food seemingly effortlessly. She is easy to have around the house and left the kitchen clean and tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
Just a little mail to say thank you for helping make our wedding so successful. You produced exactly what we wanted. Tasty, modern unpretentious food. Perfect for our family occasion.Hopefully we will be working with you again in the future at the villa. If we need a chef i will be recommending you to the family.”

Thank you SO, SO much for all you did for us last week and your endless patience with having so many little people running around. Your food was absolutely delicious and the salads particularly scrummy. It was such a treat for me not to have to think about food or do the shopping and also gave me the chance to spend time with the kids both old and young! I hope all was well when you got home and that you weren’t too exhausted. Best of luck for the rest of your summer.
What a lovely week it was for us all – just went too quickly.”
All in all everything was lovely, I would say perfect in every way, better than I had imagined it would be and a day we will never forget, thank you so much for everything. It would not have been the same with any other team or silly French sauces (hahaha).”

“Claire provides a high quality and variety of meals that are not only delicious but also exciting and creative, with flavour combinations you would never have thought of before. Everybody Claire catered for sang praises about her food (and asked for the recipes!) We hope to see her again at upcoming events!”

“Ding and I wanted to thank you for the effort you put in to making our wedding a success! The key things that we would like to point out as particularly successful were:
– We received a lot of compliments for the Chinese snacks (this was unexpected!) E.g. one person said it was the best Chinese snacks he had ever had!
– Many people said they loved the cheese platter
– The burgers were very popular – on both days (as you probably noticed). They were also my personal favorite – very juicy! Well done!
We are happy and want to thank you and your team for your hard work throughout the weekend!”
Sam and Ding Wedding August 2013
“We hired Claire to cater for our wedding that was held at a villa in Salernes. The wedding was a year ago and people are still talking about how amazing the food was and how it helped to make our day so special.
We met Claire 3 months before the big day to discuss our ideas and she was really open to what we had to say. She also offered us some good advice and made us think about things we hadn’t even considered, such as how the temperature might affect certain food and not wanting people to be waiting around for food and drinks at any point during the day.
The wedding was an intimate affair but Claire’s food complemented it brilliantly. The canapés kept people busy while we had our official photos taken and then when the food was unveiled our guests were delighted.
The choice available suited everyone and it looked and tasted extremely fresh. The meat that had been prepared on the BBQ was delicious and a homemade gratin dauphinois was eaten up within 5 minutes of being taken out the oven.
At this point of the day, Claire and her staff had been working for over 5 hours but never once looked stressed out and were waiting on hand to clear away the mains and set up the desserts.
The desserts Claire offered us were a mix of our favourite personal choices and classics that again suited the needs of all our guests and were all made fresh on the day.
Although Claire was originally due to leave at 9pm, she was still at the wedding at 11pm helping us to clear up and making sure that our guests were 100% looked after and never went without food or drink.
I would hire Claire again without a doubt and have her to thank for making our day one we will never forget.”
