I have been working in London for the past 30 years, initially as a pastry chef at Villandry and later as a chef and head chef at various restaurants, most notably La Fromagerie, Zucca, Rochelle Canteen, Duck Soup, York and Albany and the Mistley Thorn near Manningtree as well as a stint in Bologna at the historic Caminetto d'Oro.
I aim to provide a friendly, informal and yet professional service, My objective is to understand the needs of the customer and the type of experience sought. From birthday parties, to dinner parties, to small corporate events, my goal is to deliver delicious, homemade food, using only the best seasonal produce, locally sourced. Be it Rustic Italian, Modern British or Classic French.

An AMAZING Afternoon Tea. I have had quite a few afternoon teas in some very nice establishments, Milano exceed even the best I have had. The food was very well presented and delivered in boxes on trays, already to be served. Delivery was very prompt and with very friendly service.
All the food tasted exceptional, freshly prepared sandwiches with plenty of filling, delicious. The cakes were all homemade and you could tell, they were wonderful. I have to say everyone said the Pavlova was the best they had ever had, prepared to perfection.
I have been recommending Milano Catering to all my friends and family since we had it. You will not be disappointed, the whole experience was excellent!
