Doing Good Testimonials

Doing Good Catering is our new brand, replacing Steen the Chef - same ethos, same team. Some of these testimonials are from before the rebrand!


"Thanks for a great cooking session at Kingswood yesterday. My daughter Ella had a blast and even ate some aubergine for the first time!"


"I have enjoyed all my session with Steen. He is very clear when he explains and he is patient with us oldies."

Anne Forbes, Friendship Group

"Great to see you on Saturday! The cooking went down really well with the whole group. My son Seb particularly enjoyed your style of cooking; he was impressed! So thank you!"

Brenda Cheer, ERIC Nurse

"I employed Steen for the Young Healthwatch Being Me event... Steen's sessions were the highlight of the event. Steen captured the young people's attention and encouraged them to try out new cooking techniques and taste new foods. 

I spoke to a young man who'd come along to the event and he told me that working with Steen had given him confidence in himself and boosted his self-esteem... the cooking workshops not only motivated him to look after his physical health through improving his diet but it also taught him to respect himself as a person and believe that he was capable of achieving things. I hope to continue working with Steen in the future."

Ellen Devine, Healthwatch Development Bristol

"Steen's sessions provide young people with practical and social skills and are beneficial to young people's physical, mental and social wellbeing. I hope to continnue working with Steen in the future" 

Ellen Devine 2, Healthwatch Development Bristol

"… Steen was not only able to teach the young people new cooking skills but also to engage with them on their level. I admired his patience and multi interaction techniques. I found him to be very informative not just around cooking knowledge but also general talk with young people; Steen took the time to listen and did not shy away from any challenging behaviour."

Nicola Garrett, Lead Engagement West

"Steen was employed by Youth Moves to deliver an outdoor cooking session with a variety of local primary schools within our annyal weeklong community and environmental themed event called WildFest. I do not hesitate to contact Steen whenever we have a need for cooking/youth work engagement as he has an effortless knack of engaging young people of any age, background and ability.

Ben Carpenter, Young Moves

"All of the youngsters that were involved, and their parents, enjoyed the session immensely. It really helped them get to know one another. Most importantly they all learned a new skill, had fun and returned home at the end of the day inspired and feeling a new sense of self-confidence. Thanks Steen, we won't hesitate to call you again when we get a group together!"

David Derbyshire, ERIC - The Children's Continence Charity

"Thank you Steen for teaching us such nice meals and keeping it real!"

Paul Coyne, Knowle West Health Association

"Steen has been teaching classes for us for a number of years and all the groups love his honest down-to-earth approach and fab food!"

Bearnie De Monick, Wellspring Centre

"Steen came to work for us during a Bonfire night event in 2014. He prepared and delivered a cooking workshop with young local residents, who got to learn how to make a range of healthy and delicious salads and fililngs for jacket potatoes. All the young people involved had extremely positive feedback regarding the experience of working with Steen and the attendees of the event had similarly positive things to say about eating the end result! We look forward to working with Steen again for future events includin an upcoming community fun day, cooking with people of all ages in the community"

"Emily and the team from Doing Good Catering were a pleasure to deal with, lovely team, good food and professional to deal with."

Isibéal Ballance, Producer The Amazing Mr Blunden, Adorable Media Ltd

Nick, Location Manager MEN, Harper Films

Emily and her team came recommended to me as we had to let a caterer go 3 weeks into a 12 week shoot. From the first call with Emily I had complete confidence that they were going to deliver and they did.

The food and service was spot on. Great options, sustainably sourced. The crew were over the moon after the first day's serving and I was relieved I didn't have to worry about the quality. The team are extremely friendly and willing to caterer for any dietary requirements. 

They are fairly new to the industry but not to catering and they get it and deliver.  Highly recommend.
