The Great Catering Company started life in a small way, under a different name, in my kitchen in North London over 20 years ago, where I decided to start a business providing delicious, home-cooked food for a handful of clients. My focus was on creating bespoke menus, using top quality ingredients and providing the highest standard of staff and service.
20 years later…. I would like to introduce you to my newly re-branded business - The Great Catering Company. A new name, new designs, new website, but still the same passion for great food, great service and great events.
I started my career in food over 35 years ago, learning my trade by working in all areas of the industry - as a waitress, a barista, a deli shop server, a kitchen assistant, a sous chef, a restaurant assistant manager and a front of house hospitality manager.
In each role, I watched, learned, added to my skills…. and planned!
Then, 20 years ago, I started my own catering company, putting all my experience into creating a service with a unique touch, based on providing a bespoke service for every client, and always encompassing my passion for delicious, beautifully presented food.
And now, I am starting a new chapter in my catering journey - to excite existing customers, and entice new ones! So, I would love you to meet me at The Great Catering Company, and see what I and my exceptional team of staff can create - especially for you.Get in touch
Over the years, I have had many exceptional people work with me – Chefs, sous-chefs, front-of house managers, waiters, barmen, and produce suppliers. I pride myself on still having staff working alongside me who were there at the conception of my business! And every member of my team is hand-picked by me for their superb talent in their field.
You won’t find better, more dedicated, more friendly people to help make every moment of your event totally memorable.
Linda understood what we wanted from the beginning and was an absolute pleasure to work with. The food - the canapes, dinner and dessert - was amazing, it was all inventive, delicious and beautifully presented. Our guests still talk about it years later.
Food is such an important part of any event and Linda managed to translate the atmosphere we hoped to achieve in each and every mouthful. We knew how we wanted people to feel at our wedding and Linda had lots of personalised tweaks and unique ideas to make sure the menu was a special part of the day. Linda was such a support and it was an absolute pleasure working with her and her team.
To come into my kitchen and see Linda's smiling face while she and her team prepare our delicious annual staff dinner party is a joy.
The Great Catering Company catered for my significant birthday. After discussing ideas and some dietary requirements Linda came up with a variety of inventive menu choices all hitting my brief. The food for the weekend was absolutely delicious and my guests were very complimentary.
Linda, it was amazing and surpassed all expectation! Thank you so much for the deliciousness and all the support in the run up- and please pass on our gratitude to Matt and the team too. They were brilliant!
We believe in catering by design – no set menus here, just bespoke, individually designed, delicious food for every client and every event.View Menus
