Fabulous in every way! We booked Jane and Emily to cater for our wedding after we had to postpone our big day twice during the pandemic….and we are so glad that we found them! Delicious canapes and a wedding breakfast for 160, executed in the most friendly, relaxed, professional, efficient way. The guests have also repeatedly waxed lyrical about the food! Beyond this, Emily and her team kept glasses topped up…with fizz or elderflower , during a testing heatwave, without faltering! We had a few guests with strict dietary restrictions and I was so taken aback at the care and level of detail that Emily went to to ensure that they were fine. A very kind team indeed and no stone left unturned when it comes to the planning detail. Amazing “after party” clear up too which we weren’t expecting! We were so delighted with the menu that we have asked Creative Cooks if we can book them again to recreate our wedding menu as a special dinner for two! A very lovely company to work with – we cannot recommend Emily, Jane & team enough! Thank you to you all!

“Dear Jane and Emily… I just wanted to write and thank you all for your hard work in both preparation and delivery of yesterday’s event.

The food was spectacular and your staff were absolutely amazing. I can’t even tell you how many comments I’ve had praising both (the canapés were a particular favourite of everyone).

Nothing was too much trouble for your lovely staff and the hall looked absoluted beautiful.

Thank you for making the event everything I hoped it would be!.”

“Dear Jane and Emily… Wow… thank you for everything yesterday. Lunch was truly delicious and it all seemed to go so perfectly.

You and your team were brilliant… from briging us canapés to keeping us in touch with what was happening; it could not have gone better. So a huge huge thank you to you all.

I thought the marquee looked amazing and it really was for us the most magical day and I wish we could do it all again.”

“Dear Emily… Firstly, we would like to thank you and your team wholeheartedly for such delicious food and service on the day. We have received many compliments about the canapes and lamb especially.

A personal thank you too for all your hard work in getting the day sorted with such a tight turnaround. Your responsiveness certainly helped make our lives easier during a very stressful time in those two weeks leading up to the wedding.

Thank you so much.”

“Thank you all so very much for the superb food at the wedding. It really could not have been better.

Superb Canapés and melt in the mouth Beef. Everyone has been talking about the food and its been mentioned all the thank you letters!

I was in the catering business myself for 25 years and so really do appreciate how much effort goes into such a smooth-running show, especially when the reception lie and speeches go on much longer than planned!

It was such a happy day and your contribution to it was massive. Your wonderful staff were excellent, so helpful and charming.

Thank you again so very much for such excellence.”

“Firstly, can I thank you, Jane and the whole team at Creative Cooks who helped make what was always going to be a good party a fabulous party. We had so many compliments about the food and service on the night and even more when people have written to thank us for the party. The food was truly outstanding and we were looked after so well by the team. They also did a fantastic job clearing up so I had an easy morning the next day!

Many thanks once more.”

60th Birthday Party, June 2018
“Creative Cooks were the caterers for our wedding on 12/5/2018. It is very difficult to summarise how amazing they were as caterers. The following are just a few points that I have picked out but I would unreservedly recommend these caterers.

Firstly the food was outstanding!! The menus that they offer have an amazing array of choice with brilliant canapés and considered starters, mains and deserts. Everything that I tried at our tasting was delicious. The food on the day was beyond anything that we could have hoped for. So many of our guests have complemented it on the day and afterwards. Not only did it taste great but it looked great too.

Secondly, Jane and Sarah are so helpful. They reply promptly to emails and are easily accessible over the phone too. They also clearly have so much experience with events and so can guide you on almost every aspect of the day from timings, table cloths, table size, cutlery, plates etc to how to best cater for your guests in terms of number of courses and quantity of food. They have loads of helpful tips that can also lower costs which is brilliant as it shows they are keen to get it right for you, not just encourage you to have the most expensive option.

Thirdly, in the run up to the wedding I was made to feel that all my questions were important-no matter how stupid they were. It meant that I could feel reassured that the day was going to run smoothly.

Finally, on the day the waiting staff that creative cooks employed were brilliant. They were friendly, professional, attentive and helped the day run without hitch. Everybody’s food was served hot and beautifully presented. The bar staff were brilliant too.

For my husband and I, food was one of the most important aspects of the wedding reception and I am so glad that we chose Creative Cooks as they delivered above and beyond in every aspect.”

“Thank you once again for the considerable effort that you all put into the catering for our wedding on the 12th.

As we said on the day, we were delighted with the meal and could not have asked for better fayre on our special day. We heard so many comments from our guests saying it was the best meal they had tasted at a wedding.

We will certainly remember you and your contribution to such a memorable occasion.”

Wedding, April 2018

“Hampshire has a great may Caterers and therefore there is lots of competition. We have lived here for a long time and Jane is our first choice for any party that we might have.

We have just had a wedding for our Daughter which included a reception with canapés, both hot and cold and a three course dinner followed by Cheese. The next day we had a drinks party for 200 with Hot and Cold Canapés. It was quite outstanding on both occasions and we had so many compliments.

The food choices she offers are excellent, beautifully presented and served (Her Staff are First Class, friendly, helpful and very presentable). She is a very good Cook as well!!

One thing that stands out for us about Jane is her approach to the planning and preparations beforehand. Nothing is too much trouble. She is flexible and accommodating and she ever stopped trying to make everything perfect and just the way we wanted it! It really was such a help.

As you can tell we are big fans! She made a huge contribution to the success of our wonderful wedding weekend and we are thrilled that we made the right choice.”

“I don’t know how to tell you how wonderful you made my wedding. It’s hard to believe it unless you saw it for yourself, the mountains and mountains of letters and calls that all shout about the amazing food. Truly. And quite rightly. It was breath taking and everyone was blown away by it. Utterly incredible.

On top of that was how you looked after my wonderful mummy. You really did and because of your kindness and attention to detail, all matched to her taste, she was a very happy mother of the bride!

And as far as R and I are concerned? Well R just kept saying “wow” over and over, and I had the happiest day of my life being spoilt by all your gorgeous staff who were so sweet!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

“Thank you so much for making our drinks party such a success. Everyone who came remarked on how delicious the food was and it was wonderful to be able to relax and leave everything in your capable hands.

Your Staff were wonderful and several guests mentioned that their glass was refilled so discreetly that it seemed to be happening automatically – well that was their excuse!!

We both enjoyed ourselves so much which was, in no small way, due to you.”
