Trained at The Bath School of Cookery and having gained a wealth of experience working closely with some of the top catering companies in London over eleven years, along with my passion for exciting new recipes, I can provide thoughtful, fabulously tasty food for clients who are looking for first class home cooked style food.

I can provide tea party catering at your own home, exciting canapes ready to go, deliver buffet style lunch or dinner dishes, large enticing salads, busy family meals to go into the freezer and incredible desserts & cakes.

My services also include providing 'Fridge Food to Go!' which has become very popular for holiday lets around the New Forest and large family gatherings.

My style is very much based around Ottolenghi style food, big rustic platters of colourful salads & dishes with unusual exciting twists.

Food can be collected from my home kitchen based near Lymington, Hampshire.  Alternatively I provide a useful home delivery service (within a 3 mile radius).

...I would rate you 10 out of 10. The food both looked and tasted wonderful and I would wholeheartedly recommend you to friends. The feedback from my friends has been how great the Canapés were. I also thought that you were very professional, and a very clean & tidy worker. I cannot thank you enough for helping make my significant Birthday Party so great.  Denise Moore

..thank you for providing all the food for our ruby wedding anniversary - the food was exciting and delicious - it certainly had a wow factor about it! We will be using you again! Thank you Sophie..

Sophie recently undertook a private lunch function for me for 30 adults and 20 children.  The brief was quite specific with several dietary requirements.  I was very impressed with her interpretation of the brief and some lovely menu choices.  We were very pleased to see that she uses local produce wherever possible and the quality and taste of everything that we were served was first class.  At the event Sophie and Mel couldn’t do enough to help and everything was very well organised. As hosts we didn’t feel we needed to worry at all, and everything was left clean and tidy.  The food was so plentiful we all tucked in again in the evening, all guests were very impressed and complimented Sophie and the food. Lisa Morgan

..Sophie - Amazing! Thank you for everything you did for us to create such a wonderful lunch today - the buffet & puddings were out of this world..

Health & Safety

Once the food has been delivered, responsibility for keeping the food in a refridgerated state falls to the client.  Please ask for advice if you require further information regarding the storage, consumption or reheating of all food.  We reserve the right to remove any uneaten food at the end of your event in order to prevent causes of food poisoning caused by the inappropriate storage of food.

To prevent spread of infection we request that our clients ask guests who have recently suffered from sickness NOT to attend their event. Norovirus and other infections are easily spread through touching food and where lots of people gather in close environment.

Sophie has her Level 2 Food Safety in Catering and had full public liability insurance.
