About Julie

My love of food stems from childhood, learning skills from my mother who daily prepared fresh, seasonal and delicious food for the family. Now, having practised as a corporate lawyer for many years, this passion has become my vocation.

I am committed to creating new and exciting dishes and whether you are looking for excellent seasonal food or have special requirements (including vegetarian, vegan, coeliac, diabetic and low cholesterol diets) I will plan the perfect menu for your perfect event. I use only excellent quality ingredients (eg free range poultry from my local butcher) and can cover Greater London and the Home Counties.
