About Us

Welcome to Quinntessential Catering where you can find my latest food inspirations and seasonal recipes, menu samples, upcoming events as well as services I have to offer.

I’m a passionate foodie and a self-taught cook with a background in film and animation where my creative talent paved the way to the top in Modelmaking for films and television – specialising in animation where I became Head of Modelmaking at Aardman Animations in Bristol for the Golden years of Wallace & Gromit. I now use those talents in making sure my food looks as good as it tastes, the table setting is artistic and I love to design a themed event!

I stepped into Private Catering to satisfy my culinary cravings taking inspiration from world travel and endless dinner parties with willing participants. Moving to rural Essex created an opportunity to manage and run a Cookery School for 5 years where I delighted in passing on my knowledge to clients of all ages and abilities, helping to boost confidence in their cooking, invoke inspiration out of mundane daily menu routines, and children’s cookery workshops where I delighted in pushing boundaries and banishing fussy eating habits forever.

I set up Quinntessential Catering to offer a high standard of cooking skills created from a wealth of experience, to bring bespoke food for all occasions, served with exemplary service and a smile.

I will be offering event catering for all occasions, private 1-1 lessons, pop-up local dining entertaining & supper clubs and Chef at your Home service.

I look forward to cooking for you…
