WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU USE?
My focus is both on locality and seasonality. I source the finest, freshest ingredients possible. My cooking relies heavily on the natural tastes, colours and textures of our fruit & vegetables grown here in the UK. I source meat from my local butcher & fish I know to be sustainably caught. Olive Oils, Vinegars, Charcuterie & Wines may come from Europe.
How far will you travel?
I'm happy to travel up to 25 miles from Exeter without charge. Events further away may incur travel expenses. I will happily consider events abroad.
WHAT WILL MY EVENT COST?
Cost will of course depend on menu choice, event size and location. Typically, a 'sharing' dinner for 10 people might cost around £40 - £60 per person, with accompanying wine at around £12 per person. Bespoke dinners are much more difficult to estimate. Depending on the menu choice, anything from £80 - £120 per person plus wine. My minimum charge for an event is £500.
WHAT ARE YOUR BOOKING TERMS & CONDITIONS?
After we have agreed the nature and cost of your event, I will supply you with an outline by email for your agreement. If you wish to go ahead, I ask for a 50% deposit in order to book your event and begin preparation.
The final 50% is payable on completion of the event together with any sundries or last minute alterations. 25% of the total cost (half of the deposit) is refundable if you cancel the event with at least 60 days notice.
In the event of a cancelation with less than 30 days notice, the deposit will be retained.
