Home Cooking by Elizabeth

I just wanted to thank you for the splendid catering you provided for my mother-in-law’s 80th birthday. We have had so many thank you notes and compliments after the event, all saying what lovely food, how well organised and how it worked like clockwork.

Catering for weddings, bereavements, private functions, civil partnership ceremonies, corporate catering.


Elizabeth - Home Cooking Direct Esher

I am now celebrating 28 years as a Caterer, this has been a very rewarding period of my life, giving me great satisfaction knowing every event is special. I generally bespoke every menu , often producing recipes personally for my clients. I am the main influence of all my catering events and will be seen back of house in my apron! I am supported by my husband Jon and daughters, Stefanie, Lucinda and Olivia who all have their own roles within the business. Lucinda works closely with me and has become a very important part of the business taking the next generation to a different level. She is an excellent cook, with a total natural ability giving great culinary artistic flair.

All our catering dishes can be ordered to add to your existing party arrangements….contact us for more details!

It seems a long time ago, starting just in my kitchen at home with my three small children, producing and selling my products at local indoor craft markets, it was during that time in my life I actually created my signature dishes, which I am still producing today, Homemade Pies, Quiches and various types of cakes.

Over the past years I have always kept food ideas and styles up to date, my basic technique of home style cooking or as a great friend of mine always says “cooking from the heart” and using the best possible ingredients has always been the key to our success. I am also mindful of using and supporting local produce and businesses. I am very fortunate to live in Great Bookham in Surrey and there is a wealth of great suppliers, with excellent butchers, a fish monger, a bakery and a greengrocer all of which are family businesses who care. I am now proud to present our Show Room, which is in Great Bookham, where potential clients can visit us, see our portfolio and more importantly plan part or all of their special catering event, however big or small, everyone is individual and special to us. The menus are only an idea to give a price structure when you are browsing through them and every one can be adapted.

I eagerly write my own recipes and you will find many of my recipes on the website, I have also written for local magazines, occasionally broadcast on local radio and apparently pop up on cbeebies a children’s programme, as a puzzled cook producing bizarre things from the kitchen! Something I did a few years ago. At the moment I am at the finishing stages of writing my cookery biography, which spans the last 30 years.

I look forward to meeting you.
