Robust & elegant. Local & organic. Wandering British cuisine.
After years travelling the globe and working and eating on four continents, Alastair has returned home to cater for some of the smartest and most refined palates in London and the South West.
His food is recognisably British in tone, but borrows occasionally from India, the Americas, France, Italy and Spain.
The focus is always on sourcing the best local ingredients, and Alastair has a personal relationship with some of the best producers in the South West and beyond. Sustainability is also high on his agenda, and wherever possible ingredients are organic and always certified sustainable.
As excited by a greenhouse tomato as by a fine beef fillet or native lobster, Alastair squeezes the last ounce of flavour from everything and lets quality ingredients speak for themselves.

Wonderful food, even catering for some specific requirements without fuss. Ali evidently values good quality ingredients and sources them locally. Service was unintrusive but friendly and helpful. The kitchen was left immaculate. We really couldn’t suggest improvements. Thank you so much

"I found Ali on the web and started the whole process off by email. He was cooking for me for my 40th birthday party. From start to finish the communication was excellent. Explained to Ali the type of food I liked and he came up with suggestions. Ali also let me tweak the suggestions also to fine tune dishes which made me really happy.

From our first contact Alastair was straightforward , cheerful , prompt & professional. Our brief was not easy because we asked him to cater for a party including those aged 5 to 75. All were delighted. I personally have never eaten a better beef Wellington. Before we left the table our small granddaughter summarised Alastair’s work perfectly. “He is just SO talented”. We all agreed.

Alastair is an amazing chef - he whipped up a storm for my birthday party and everyone loved it. He is also a great guy to have around in the kitchen - he doesn't seemed to get stressed even when there are masses of people around he still manages to keep his cool and make yummy food. Defo recommend him to anyone looking for catering.
