Home and Garden
Our motto remains the same as it has always been – Laughter is brightest where food is best.
With our dedication to sourcing the finest, freshest and most local ingredients wherever possible, be it fruit, vegetables, meats, fish or cheeses, we insist on everything being made from the best produce, and cooked with flair to perfection – sheer quality from the farm to the plate.
Victoria’s was lucky enough to have been at the forefront of the new food revolution in London of the early 1990’s while cooking in London, and at the fashionable ‘Books for Cook’s restaurant, alongside many of the well-known writers, cooks and gourmands of today. Her passion grew into the food and catering business it is today.
Always keen to embrace and explore fresh ideas, new flavours and new ways of cooking, together with her travels to many countries in Asia, the Middle East and Mediterranean to seek out foods and ingredients, has ensured she remains at the forefront of today’s food trends.
Victoria’s bestseller book ‘Canapés’ by the publisher DK in 1999 sealed her expertise in party food over the last two decades, and further book titles have kept her up to date.
We are Somerset based landscape and garden designers, located not far from Bath and Bristol, working throughout the South of England.
Our gardens work in partnership with nature, using planting that harmonises with local ecosystems. We believe that in changing times gardens play an important role in helping us retain our balance. Our designs work hard to make the most of this precious outdoor space. We have been designing gardens for over ten years and have worked on projects ranging from small courtyard gardens to twenty acre landscape parks.
I am a London based private caterer, providing fresh, seasonal and delicious food for a range of occasions, whether it be a dinner party, cocktail party, shooting lunch or family holiday. I also offer a fridge / freezer filling service delivering tasty and nutritious meals helpful for those busy times.
I provide a professional and friendly service specialized to your requirements to create beautiful dishes and take the stress out of any event.
I believe that gardens and their surrounding landscapes play a vital role in bringing calm and perspective to our busy lives. The space around your house, no matter how large or small, should be somewhere you want to spend time, a peaceful place that you can go at the end of a busy day. Your garden is an extension of your home – a haven in which to relax and enjoy time on your own, a comfortable place to be with friends and family and a fabulous setting in which you can entertain. So whatever the individual challenges of your garden, I would be delighted to discuss them and help you achieve the garden you have always wanted.
