Office Catering done right!
Spare Chef Catering recently catered our office opening. They were very easy to deal with right from the begining. The Chef sent to us (Jay) was lovely & despite a few on-site challenges, just made it work. The food was beautifully presented & extremely tasty. looking forward to left-overs for lunch the following day - but no luck. There simply wasn't a morsel left & that's unusual.

Almost all of our guests were asking who I'd used to cater & I would have no hesitation in recommending Spare Chef Catering to anyone.

Exceded expectatons in every way
We used The Spare Chef for catering for my husband's milestone birthday buffet lunch recently.
The menu selections were interesting and innovative and sounded very inviting.
As we do not live in town the spare chef had to travel an hour each way to reach us, and use their mobile kitchen on site . Their pre-preparation seemed perfect, they were punctual in arriving, and everything worked like clockwork.
The canapes were delicious, and beautifully presented, and really wowed the guests from the outset and the buffet lunch certainly exceeded expectation in terms of quality and quantity. It was generous in the extreme. We could not have asked for more.
We highly recommend The Spare Chef.
