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.

All our dishes are prepared at Butetown Pavilion’s community kitchen in Cardiff with whom we work in partnership to deliver cooking sessions to a variety of community groups. We are cooking and freezing these dishes in bulk so all you need to do is defrost and reheat.

We never use nuts in our kitchen and most 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 24 hours of defrosting. Note: once we work out the delivery route you will be sent a text with a 4-hour delivery window. When you place your order, please state where we can leave the food if you are going to be out.
