Catering

Communication with Jackie ahead of the event was quick, straightforward and responsive.

She turned up with her team as expected, set up without problems and was fired up and ready to prepare/serve food on time. They remained throughout the night of the party, serving continuously.

This is great food. A bit different, healthy and substantial.
Everyone enjoyed it.
This was an 18th birthday party so it was perfect for our fiesta theme, but provided sustenance for the night.
Great value for money too - thoroughly recommend.

We love the Punchy Pineapple Hot Sauce we bought at the Ninfield village market, we have rubbed it into chicken prior to cooking also drizzled over salad and pasta! It added a lovely kick!

Q&As

Arepa - Venezuelan corn pockets stuffed with black beans and a choice of spicy shredded beef, pulled pork or butternut and topped with guasacaca (Venezuelan avocado sauce) and/or cheese.

I offer a preliminary menu from which they pick and choose items and introduce them to our website where they can look at the types of food we offer.

Introducing people to delicious South American food and new culinary experiences.

I lived for almost 10 years in South America, during that time I cooked during my holidays at an Eco resort on the Caribbean coast where visitors from all over South America came and shared their knowledge of food. I also travelled extensively through the region and ate mainly street food. I wanted to recreate these dishes for people in this country and introduce them to an as yet relatively undiscovered cuisine.

I am passionate about introducing people to authentic South American food. The food is new and exciting, interesting and delicious. Our vegan options are extremely popular and many of our dishes are gluten free.
