Catering

Sarah Sellick

I have always loved to cook and as a child could often be found surrounded by eggs, flour and butter attempting to create something delicious. I trained as a cordon bleu cook as soon as I could and have cooked happily ever since – the last 5 years for Sleeps12.

I work directly with all my clients to discuss menus and specific wishes and am very happy to cater for all dietary requirements. I use the best local ingredients I can find and am happy to cater for small and large groups.

My aim is to take the stress and hassle away from you so that you can sit back and enjoy your special meal knowing that all you have to do is sit down while my friendly waitresses and I do all the hard work including the washing up and tidying away!
