Our Mission

Doing Good Catering is a sustainable catering company that gives its customers the opportunity to support free cooking sessions to vulnerable groups in Cardiff through its cooking school.

Run by Emily & Steen, Doing Good Catering is a small family catering business based in Cardiff that uniquely provides local businesses with the opportunity to build their Corporate Social Responsibility targets through delivering tried-and-tested cooking sessions to the most disadvantaged in our community.

Eating Well, Doing More

Being sustainable caterers means our menus are seasonal with many ingredients organically grown on our own allotment. We have always hated that food production is such a wasteful industry with leftovers going into landfill, polystyrene & plastic cutlery still being used and poor wages being paid. We have never subscribed to that nonsense.

Whilst we offer a variety of great meat and fish options, we specialise in vegetarian and vegan cooking as we believe that this is far better for our planet.

by sustainable caterer Steen the Chef

When we ran our gastro-pub in Long Ashton back in the early 2000s, Steen cooked utterly delicious meals fresh-to-order which put our little restaurant on the map, loved by foodies and critics alike. 

Now available to you, Steen's meals are rich and full of flavour and each Tuesday he will cook six complete meals ready for delivery the next day.

Costing £5 each, Steen's meals are complete with vegetables and come in a recyclable microwaveable tray, ready to pop direct into a microwave or decant into a pot/ovenware for reheating. 

Buy 5 meals and delivery is free in CF Postcode areas, otherwise it's £3.95 delivery on top for smaller orders or delivery outside of CF Postcode area.

All our dishes are prepared in community kitchens in Cardiff with whom we work in partnership to deliver cooking sessions to a variety of community groups.

We use healthy fats and some meals are gluten free. Meat is British reared under RSPCA welfare or free-range, and are halal.

Many of the vegetables and herbs we use come from our organic kitchen garden in Cardiff and we always operate under stringent UK Food Hygiene rules. Added to that we will monitor the temperatures of our staff and you can feel assured that we are taking as much care as we can with your health as with ours.

Food is delivered frozen so please defrost fully and eat within 48 hours of defrosting. When you place your order, please state where we can leave the food if you are going to be out.

Steen The Chef has been trading as a caterer for over 20 years and food tutor for over 13 years. His social enterprise company is Doing Good Catering Ltd. Click here for more information on our ethos.
