     Dear Emma

    I just wanted to write and thank you and your team for the most amazing day on Saturday. The food was outstanding and the staff were so attentive. I would particularly like to mention Sam and Lydia who were absolutely brilliant. Mum and Dad had a wonderful time and their special day will stay with them forever. I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
    With our very best wishes, Emma.

     Dear Emma

    thank you so very much from both Beth and I for such a wonderful lunch on Saturday - you were an absolute pleasure to work with from the start and the day was a testimony to your extremely hard work, it seemed to run so smoothly and effortlessly, but we could sense how much effort was being put in behind the scenes.

    Your serving staff were so efficient and polite, and had the rare gift of being there if you needed them but invisible if not! You all ensured that Beth and I were able to enjoy the day as much as everyone else, which is often a rare thing when responsibility is on your head to ensure things run like clockwork!

    Thank you also for keeping an eye on the time and getting everyone finished for the athletics at 3pm, and for quietly getting on with clearing everything up. It was a great pleasure to have so little to do when we left at 4.30!

    I am delighted that we will be able to work together again in 2018 when my younger son Finlay will be leaving! I will drop in and say hello next year as I know you will be there…

    Very many thanks again and hope you have had a chance to have a well deserved rest yesterday and today!

     Dear Emma,

    What a WONDERFUL weekend!

    Thank you for all of your work before and during the day. We have had do much fun with you along the way during the tasting and build up and it all paid off beautifully. Your staff were utterly superb without exception and their professionalism and efficiency were matched only by their apparent enjoyment of the day.

    All of that good energy comes from the top and we are particularly grateful to your for all the time that our wedding will have taken up.
    Lots and lots of love to you and your team. We could not be happier.
    David & Anna

    ps there were simply too many compliments about the food to pass them all on but many folk mentioned the extraordinary quality of the fillet. Thanks for that!! Xxxx


    Dear Emma
    We were just saying to each other that we could eat the whole day again. We LOVED IT! From the tea to the buttie(!) it was a foodie's dream. The beef at the centre of it was so incredibly succulent and delicious, and we heard so many people saying so. We were sorry that the puddings were hijacked by the first dance. I darted back to enjoy mine as soon as I got a break from dancing.
    I was so joyful Emma. Thank you to your team for being so professional and at the same time, invisible! They worked unstoppably hard.
    As did you, Emma. Wow, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did for us. We felt at every moment along the way that we could sit back and relax in your hands, and that is the ultimate thing when you've got a wedding on your hands!
    With love from us both and hope to see you soon...

     Dear Emma,
    I know I have said this to you many times before, but never have I meant it more than now – you simply are the best! Saturday night would most definitely not have been the huge success it was without your input, not just the incredible food, but all your hard work in the build up to the party, your sound advice on just about everything (the marquee, security, glasses etc etc, I could go on!), the way you took control of the whole evening from start to finish and finally your fantastic staff – and I do mean fantastic. Everyone, but everyone, commented on how stunning the food was and everyone also made reference to the fabulous service. Inevitably there was still a huge amount of clearing up to do outside etc, but I am always SO impressed at how clean you leave the kitchen and cooker. You would not have known you had been in there! The fact that you take complete control of the whole evening, leaves us to really enjoy ourselves and I really can’t thank you enough.

     Dear Emma,
    Thank you so much for everything you did on Saturday night.
    It was such a happy occasion for me and you made it effortless - I cannot thank you enough! Putting me in touch with Oxford Marquees was inspired - the heating and lighting were obviously important for the barn to work as a dining room! However, the food was critical for making the whole party very special and everything you had prepared was utterly delicious! To serve it all up in the barn really cannot have been at all easy either but your "can do approach" made it seem so! Thank you also for organising the staff to help (they were delightful)! You made the whole evening incredibly special, happy and fun!
    It was very kind of you to have helped with such efficiency and good humour: Your food really is second to none and extraordinarily excellent! 

    With huge gratitude.

     Just to say a very big thank you for your very professional catering at our home on Sunday. We had the most wonderful day and much of that is thanks to your fabulous food. We had compliments aplenty and one or two folks asked if we had your business card! The staff you brought along were the most charming, smart, caring and very friendly young people. A credit to the young of today, please let them know we appreciated them. Again a big thank you, we know just who to contact should we have another party.

     Thank you SO much for a delicious lunch on Sunday, it was absolutely gorgeous - every bit of it. I've never heard people rave so much about canapes, they were truly yummy. The beef was perfect and the salmon / prawn salad and summer rice was such a fantastic combination. It was all to die for - thank you for guiding us on the selections. Your team were brilliant - friendly, efficient and professional

     Dear Emma, South Bucks Hospice would like to give you a huge thank you for your generous donation of a selection of some wonderful canapes. They were absolutely delicious and everyone had great things to say about them. The art exhibition was a great success with over 80 people attending. With your support we raised £2750 which will go towards the cost of end-of-life care we provide to local people in the community. Again, thank you very much for your support.

     Dear Emma, Thank you for making my 40th birthday party such a wonderful night. It was so lovely to do it at home and from my first enquiry you took expert charge and effortlessly created a magical evening. The food was delicious, the service excellent, and the atmosphere you helped create; electric! All my guests commented on the evening, and so many said that it was like being in a cool London restaurant! So Heston Blumenthal; eat your heart out!! All the best, Gabriella Kennedy

     Dear Emma Thank you so much for helping make last night such a success. I can't tell you how many comments we had about the food being absolutely gorgeous and many about it being the best food they've eaten at a party. It is truly amazing how you produce such gorgeous food for that number of guests. You were so professional and organised, and the food was produced and served seamlessly. The girls and lads you had serving did a tremendous job. They were extremely polite and very efficient. Even the hire company were brilliant (the quality of the glasses was excellent) and your supplier for the ice delivered bang on 6pm! Thank you so much again for all your hard work. Kind regards Susie

     Dear Emma, On behalf of the parents of Lyon's Upper Sixth, I would like to express our appreciation for the excellent catering service that you and your team have provided us on Saturday, helping to make our Speech Day lunch most enjoyable and memorable. I would like to say that everything you had arranged and provided for us was perfect: the food was delicious, the very seasonal dishes were perfect for the occasion, with ample varieties and excellent choices, and well presented on the buffet; the canapés in particular were a delicacy and were presented exquisitely, and again with excellent varieties and choices. Thank you also for having accommodated our vegetarian and vegan participants with such flexibility. Your team of waiter/waitresses is to be commended on too: they were attentive, efficient and friendly, and worked hard to ensure that everything ran smoothly. Once again, a grateful thanks you from us all.

     Dear Emma A huge thank you for all of your efforts in preparing such a fantastic feast for us on our wedding day; the food was superb throughout. The canapés were simply delicious - as everyone commented the whole way through the day. We have no idea how you managed it but somehow you also presented a perfectly cooked main course - so tasty! And for 160 people. It was perfect for a summer’s day. The puddings also went down incredibly well as shown by all the clean plates at the end! Not only was the food the best we have ever tasted at a wedding, but all the personal touches were so brilliant - sweets and cheese for after dinner, attentive, polite and well trained staff - we could go on. We were also delighted to have been able to have tasted it all before at your home. Thank you for being so professional and serving up such a wonderful feast and supporting our wedding so well.

    Emma's summer course

     I attended Emma's summer course last year and found it inspirational. The dishes were varied, simple to follow and so tasty. Emma taught us enough recipes to get me through a whole summer, entertaining and cooking for my brood became far less daunting. I cant wait to attend the next course and kick off another fun summer.
