Event Catering

For all special events such as weddings, birthdays, hen & stag parties, anniversaries or christenings, Quinntessential can offer you fabulous food with a professional and friendly service to help make it an event to remember.

Our seasonal menus are personally tailored to suit any occasion, whether in a field, a church, barn or at home, big or small, each one fulfilled with a totally bespoke brief dedicated to you and designed with your personal needs, tastes and budget. Offering support from day one till the end where we tidy up and you go to bed..

Our repertoire is broad so all needs can be met from a 4-course sit down dinner to a wild and rustic buffet, with each menu personally created using seasonal produce and locally sourced produce when possible. A love of world cuisine offers you so much choice and creativity; an informal Tapas feast with Paella, a Mexican Fiesta, or maybe a night in Marrakesh under the stars with lanterns and yurts! Or a beautiful large Grazing Table laden with colourful antipasti, salads, cheese & dips, with freshly baked breads and locally picked Summer fruit.

Event Catering has inspiring party menus such as Buffet & Bowl Food, Canapes & Grazing Platters and Vintage Afternoon Teas.

For further ideas see Private Dining offering a large selection of sample menus for themed Dinner Parties  and Dining at home.

If I have whetted your appetite then please get in touch with details of your event and we can start dreaming up something delicious together?
