Here’s what our lovely clients have to say —

I have been in the entertainment business for many years; have experienced all types of catering but never expected a small, local company to provide such great service, style, staff and canapes. I had a private party for 40 people, and found Cooking for a Crowd professional from the beginning - advice on changes to their menus, timings etc. - to the very end, when there was no trace of their having been at the flat. AND their prices were reasonable. They made me look good - I have had so many compliments.  Would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Cooking for a Crowd did a wonderful job and we could not have been more delighted. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Wendy and Beejal’s calm, relaxed efficiency was just we hoped for. Because of them the day was a great success and we had a lovely party. We couldn’t be happier and would heartily recommend them to anyone.

Cooking for a crowd catered for a recent 50th birthday party I organised and I cannot speak more highly about their service. The delicious food the professional way it was all conducted, no problems nothing was too much or too difficult..... lovely staff and needless to say...... not a single scrap of food left.... and there was a lot. The comments from the guests were all so positive and made me very proud of them.

Wendy and Beejal did a fantastic job catering for our wedding at Linden House on the Thames. They made us feel at ease right from the start and took care to help us through the planning stages including the chance to taste the dishes and wines we planned to serve our guests. The day went so well which is largely due to them. Everyone commented on how lovely the food was!!
