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.

Enter the world of Home Cooking by Elizabeth
Bringing food and people together
I am now celebrating over 30 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 and artistic flair.
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 where there is a wealth of great suppliers, with excellent butchers, a fishmonger, a bakery and a greengrocer, all of which are family businesses who care.
Throughout the years the personal catering service has always thrived and many clients are still using our services since 1986. It is the core of my business and my great passion. I have many testimonials from past clients who have appreciated and experienced our special touch. Whatever the size, all events are treated the same. The menus are only an idea to give a price structure, when you are browsing through them.
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.
The opening of our Showroom in Great Bookham, has been a great success. Clients can come in and see me or one of my Team, six days a week where your function can be planned or simply ordering one of our home made dishes.
I am always happy to meet you and give a free consultation for your own special event.
