The food you produced was first class

“Dear Camilla, we are home now after a wonderful week in Ilfracombe celebrating Val’s 80th birthday which turned out exactly as she had planned. The food you produced was first class. The 2 meats were succulent and tender and the special vegetarian options “exciting” and very well received. I would also use the same expression for the vegetables – a wide choice with an interesting presentation. The dessert added to the excitement and taste, and the cheese board was a wonderful selection. I do appreciate the difficulties you had bringing all these dishes to the table in the top condition that you wished for but neither myself or my sons heard any unappreciative comments–and what all cooks look for–the finished plates were clean! Thank you very, very much. I am sure you will continue to bring pleasure and enjoyment to many diners.”
Vic Allen, September 2016

 

At-home Dinner Parties

Communication was great, food was divine and you are just fabulous!

“I just wanted to drop you a line to say what a wonderful dinner we had on Saturday. Having never hired someone to cook a dinner in-house for me before, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Communication was great, food was divine and you are just fabulous! Thanks being part of our camp dinner!”
Craig Jones, Director, See Reverse, June 2016

 

Everything was cooked to perfection and very tasty

“Hi Camilla, Verity and I would like to thank you and your amazing team for such a wonderful meal on Saturday night. The crab starter was delicious, as was the pork loin and the dessert! We could not have asked for more! Everything was cooked to perfection and very tasty.”

We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone

“After our first meeting to discuss what sort of a function we wanted, I felt that a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, and was confident that you would deliver just what was required. Everything went smoothly, the food was delicious, well presented and every comment we received was full of praise for your team. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone, and would certainly use you again for a similar function.”
Ann White, South Molton Oct 2009

 

They have consistently provided our business with delicious and imaginative meals

“I can’t recommend Creative Cookery enough. They have consistently provided our business with delicious and imaginative corporate catering solutions, always with a smile and a sense of humour. I don’t know how they manage to make such healthy fare look and taste so great! They always score top marks from our guests, who rave about the quality and variety of the food we provide. Whenever we have repeat business, the returning guest always enquires whether Creative Cookery is still providing the catering. Our accountant loves them too, as they are very competitively priced, yet without compromising on the quality or service they deliver.”
Sue Keane, The Springboard Consultancy

 

Needless to say that the chocolate slices and meringues disappeared quickly!

“Thank you so much for your excellent buffet and choice of food. The table laden with various platters looked tempting and was enjoyed by a steady stream of visitors during the day. Needless to say that the chocolate slices and meringues disappeared rather quickly! Ken and I appreciate your advice and expertise and thank you for helping to make our special day so memorable.”
Jean and Ken

 

 All of the yummy food gave us the much needed energy to go through the days of yoga training

“Thank you very much for filling our bellies  during our yoga teacher training this summer. All the yummy food gave us the energy to go through the days. We also appreciated your careful attention to our needs – like making us chocolate brownies when we needed it!”

Thanks Camilla for a fabulous event and inspiring my boys

“My teenage sons have never been interested in proper food before, but after the dinner party they have been downloading recipes and taking over the kitchen. I don’t know if this is a good thing as it takes a lot of cleaning. Thanks Camilla for a fabulous event and inspiring my boys”
Tracy Boniface, Exmouth

 

You soldiered on with the gas hob and candles. Fantastic!

“Thanks Camilla for being the voice of calm in my stressful day. Being the mother of the bride was bad enough but when the lights went out I thought it was the end of our day. But you soldiered on with the gas hob and candles. Fantastic!”
Yvonne Birting, Somerset
