Food For Every Occasion
I started my cooking journey by learning from my mother, who was kept her food miles low with fresh vegetables from the garden and plenty of home reared Cotswold lamb. After university, I spent three winters as a chalet girl in France and America, before returning home to the corporate world. Marriage and babies brought me back to the Cotswolds, where my love of cooking for others reignited, leading to The Travelling Kitchen.
At the heart of what we do at The Travelling Kitchen are the skills I learned from my mother; to make meals from scratch with good ingredients and let the conversation and the guests be the stars.
An annual Christmas drinks party that the hostess had self catered for many years. We supplied canapes and staff allowing her to finally move away from the AGA and socialise with her guests. All this was done while keeping an eye on a horse with suspected colic - that's multitasking!
Chinese New Year
A Chinese New Year party in the heart of the Cotswolds. Chinese themed canapes to start, followed by takeaway boxes of sesame chicken with smashed cucumber salad. Our friendly staff helped out from greeting guests at the door to keeping the drink flowing all night.
Relaxed family reunion
A long overdue family reunion of three generations from all over the world. We supplied a cold buffet of baked ham, local bread and cheeses alongside vibrant salads. After an afternoon of high energy games (on their part) there was tea with homemade cake, scones and cream.
