Established in 1979 by Judy, Creative Catering has built up an impressive list of clients. All the high quality foods are home cooked and beautifully presented. They will cater for all types of function, with heavy emphasis on personal service.
‘When I started my company almost 25 years ago, I vowed to provide a truly personal service for every one of my clients and I do this by dealing with each of them myself, in person….Every wedding guest is a potential client and therefore, the best way to advertise, is to provide an excellent and memorable reception…. Food should excite the eye as well as the palate. Artistically presented food, in profusion, does just that.’
Catering for events and catering for weddings is usually a logistical nightmare; organising the menu choices, quantities, allergen information, drinks to pair with each course, not to mention the crockery, cutlery, tableware etc. – the list goes on and on! Our team are experienced, efficient and more than qualified to help you out with the planning. We have formed close relationships with local catering companies in the South East, whom we know to be reliable with a quality service. Who you choose to cater a party depends on the type of occasion you are planning, if you would like a Michelin star chef to cater or a family run hog roast business, we can point you in the right direction. The produce used by our suppliers is local and seasonal, which offers you and your guests fantastic taste and aesthetic quality for affordable prices to cater a party.
Once you have chosen who would be best suited to your occasion, we will organise a good time for you to sit down and discuss your thoughts – how many courses you would like, what theme you are intending and of course your favourite foods! They want to provide the best service in order for you and your guests to not only be satisfied but to be blown away. We know the best event caterers in Kent, Sussex and Surrey for weddings, corporate or parties and can help to create ideas of who would be best to give you a great event.
Both our team and the catering companies can recommend appropriate wines to supply at your event. Here at Simon P HQ, we are only aficionados (wine fans) but over the years we have built up a fantastic knowledge of wine and with help from the catering industry connoisseurs, we know what to advise to impress your guests’ appetite. Of course, everyone has their preferences but Simon P has worked in the business long enough to know what the majority favour. Our personal and the UK’s favourite wine is one we couldn’t recommend more highly, Chapel Down. This vineyard is local to us in Kent since they are based in Tenterden and having visited ourselves, we know that they have a great skill and passion for their wine collection.
Simon often highlights three things for clients organising a party or wedding: “You are feeding your guests, not fattening them”, “You are giving your guests a drink not educating their pallet” and last but certainly not least “It’s a party! Your friends are there to celebrate with you, so relax and enjoy yourself”.
