“A wonderful function looks effortless but in reality is the result of meticulous planning. My role in Burrell Catering is to listen closely to the clients brief and set about making sure that everything is in place so that it can be effectively achieved , managing the event at each stage through to completion.”

“Shortly after Trevor Burrell started the company he realized that in order for him to concentrate on producing wonderful food, someone else would have to take care of business so in stepped me. It is a role l love and after working together for over 25 years the join between his creativity and my management is seamless.”

“My first teacher in the kitchen was my grandmother, her observations of the seasons and methods of bringing out the best in fresh produce or what we call ‘organic food’ today remains with me as if it was just yesterday. My formal training took place at Westminster College, from there I served my apprenticeship at Grosvenor House Park Lane, picking up experience at The Dorchester, The Savoy, Quaglinos, and The Directors Dining at Imperial College. I also spent some special years working for The Fitzroy Nuffield Hospital, a very rewarding time advising on foods for quick recovery and patients with food allergies before finally going it alone and opening my own catering business way back in 1981.”
