"Hello Jacqueline and Team, Just to let you know we had a wonderful party! Our chef and assistant were both great, and became part of the party with their friendliness and efficiency. Everyone agreed it was a real pleasure having them with us. The food was fantastic and plentiful - loved the crab tartlets! Please pass my thanks again to both of them! Very best regards, and I will definitely get in touch. Best Regards, RJ

"We would not hesitate in highly recommending Jacqueline's services. Her friendly, knowledgeable staff took all the stress away from minute one for our staff team event, and were very sensitive to bringing the event in on budget. The food was amazing, lovely and fresh and was very well received by all. Our special dietary requirements were also taken care of with a great deal of thought too. Have no doubt, we’ll be back."

"Jacqueline developed a menu of canapés specifically designed to complement each of our new tea blends. She has made relevant and tasty menu recommendations on canapé food pairing to the different qualities and flavours of the teas and has adapted her initial proposals to suit our needs. The food has been excellent and always delivered on time, with help on presentation. I would highly recommend Jacqueline’s food and she is a pleasure to work with."

"Thank you so much to you for making my birthday lunch such a memorable event. Everyone thought the food was delicious and were impressed by its quality and the smooth service. I don't think there was a single plate that wasn't cleared. It was lovely for me to be in the middle of everything instead of doing trips in and out of the kitchen."
Liz, Private Dining Birthday Lunch, Farnham, Surrey
"Yet again an excellent evening had by all! The selection, taste and unique experience was really enjoyed by all. My wife was just blown away with it all, a really fantastic evening in every way. Many thanks for your excellent contribution."

"Just coming back down to earth, i.e. cooked Sunday roast – I think I could get used to having a resident chef! Well, only if he/she was as good at cooking and as pleasant as you and your team! Just wanted to thank you for making our family celebration so special - the food was absolutely delicious and so beautifully presented. We shall certainly pass on your details to friends."

Having been let down at the last minute by another chef Jacqueline stepped in and saved the day. The food was excellent as was the service and my mum thoroughly enjoyed her 80th birthday. I would without doubt highly recommend her and am now trying to think of another occasion when I can re-book !! Once again many thanks.

The delicious food was enjoyed by all at our tasting last week. Thank you for matching dishes to our blends, the vanilla panna cotta with raspberry coulis & almond shortbread biscuits were certainly a favourite. We will be in touch about future events for sure.
