Event Catering

From special dinners to canapé parties and everything in between, Just One Cook has you covered. I cater for a number of regular corporate clients and shoot lunches as well as for private events.

Wedding Catering

For the most special celebration of all, let me give you and your guests a meal to remember. Totally personal to you, and very special to me, I work closely with you to create your perfect feast.

Cakes, macarons and more

Sweet treats, picnic baskets, showstoppers and conversation starters, those finishing touches that make a day extra special. Also perfect as a gift or a surprise to put a smile on a loved one’s face.

Setting The scene

From start to finish, let me take the stress out of entertaining.

Hiring in crockery, cutlery, equipment and a whole range of other things, I can leave you to enjoy the occasion.

Venues

I am very pleased to be a Preferred Supplier for the beautiful Goodnestone House, catering for house rentals as well as weddings in the grounds. The stunning location provides the perfect backdrop for a celebration of any kind.

I also work with a number of local wedding venues including:

Preston Court, Wilderness Wedding Venue, Swarling Manor and Crown Lodge

I am equally happy setting up in a catering tent in a family garden or by the side of a lake. Wherever takes your fancy, there’s a way to make it happen.

Staff

For larger events I have an experienced front of house manager to keep the day running smoothly who coordinates a team of friendly, well presented waiting staff.

Suppliers

Working with other event suppliers is one of the perks of the job. The number of talented people working in hospitality, styling and general magic in creating a perfect day is amazing. Here are a selection of suppliers I would recommend.

OLIVIA WACHER

Having had my passion for food ignited by a local restaurant where I worked as a waitress, I went on to train as a Cordon Bleu chef. Training in a classically French style, I have taken the skills learnt and adapted them to create a modern twist on the classics. Focusing on your preferences and style I aim to create a truly bespoke service from start to finish.

THE KITCHEN

For food to be delicious, the preparation is as important as the service. My kitchen is in beautiful Canterbury and my suppliers are local to the area. With meat and fish from Worgan’s Butchers and The Fish Stall at The Goods Shed, speciality game from Turner’s Game and fruit and veg from local farm shops or homegrown, the food miles are kept as low as can be.

Just One Cook is proud to have been given a 5 star food hygiene rating by Canterbury City Council.
