His business, Taste Caterer, brings such knowledge to the wedding industry – uniting an expert team to provide fine, bespoke dishes for couples celebrating their special day in style. The company is well known for going the extra mile in creating dream menus perfectly aligned to clients’ wedding style. Its experience with food and menu development, and attention to detail, are what brings everything together for its customers across Sussex, Surrey, and Hampshire. Taste Caterer recognises the need for sustainability in the food industry and does everything it can to support environmentalism. It is continuously innovating to find ways of improving its carbon footprint to support our beautiful planet. Working closely with its suppliers, it aims to reuse and reduce transit materials wherever possible. Everything is made from sustainable sources if possible, including occasions such as when it devised tasting menus using its own home-made paper, and popped in wildflower seeds clients could take home and plant in their own gardens. Future plans include improving its kitchen garden with the addition of fresh herbs to take it through the whole wedding season. It will also be using its own composted food scraps to feed the potted plants scattered around the business offices. Selecting staff to work at Taste Caterer is very important as they are the customer facing part of the business. It is imperative head chef Steve can trust his front of house team on the day of the wedding, as this helps provide the best kitchen service possible. It has a huge impact on customer experience, which is something that is often commented on and reviewed favourably. Together, the front of house and kitchen teams are what has contributed to the amazing awardwinning experience Taste Caterer is able to offer its clients. Taste Caterer is growing its business with the addition of new venues to its books. It has many invaluable relationships within the industry and is excited to be able to further expand in this direction. One of the recent new steps it’s taken is the introduction of an Events Manager, sure to bring new ideas and innovations to the forefront. There are also some incredibly exciting big weddings on the cards, for which the company has gone all out to cater. It is even devising bespoke boxes, logos, and client monograms for one special event, which is just one of the reasons why this year is becoming one of the company’s most exciting yet. The most important message celebrated by all the committed foodies at Taste Caterer is that of a small business, connecting with others on a human level, to make dreams become a reality. The way it works is its internal Creative Director designs a concept, the team of chefs translate this into food, and then the front of house staff complete the circle by delivering the amazing experience. For any new clients, after personal introductions, the team will gather together to create something exceptional that hits the brief every time. And that’s the way things get done at Taste Caterer.
