We offer excellent quality rustic dishes made from fresh seasonal local ingredients and love to cook for lots of people (30 to over 500) 'live' at parties and events.  Many global foods can be cooked in front of you and served straight from the 'Big Pan'.
Our Big Pan Paella is fun to watch being created as well as delicious to eat.  Guests always enjoy the live cooking and as soon as the dish is complete can't wait to tuck in.  Classic Spain with seafood, chicken and chorizo or perhaps a meat only or vegetarian version.  The choice is yours.

Chilli con carne - Kev’s famous Chilli has been enjoyed by thousands over the last 20 years – classic party bowl food

Risotto - a complete dish or maybe to accompany fresh grilled meat or fish.  Either way the secret is in the stock.                        BBQ - check out the new 'Big Pan' hot plate and Godalming's finest bangers.

Thai or Indian Curry – choose one or more styles from our mild or hotter favorites all finished with fresh herbs

Beef bourguignon or Coq au Vin – slowly cooked in red wine and finished with glazed baby onions.  Delicious with rice or mash.
