Five Minutes with Smallpiece Catering
We love a good catch up with Ann and Gemma from Smallpiece Catering. Not only are they two of the loveliest ladies you'll ever meet, but they are also consummate professionals whom we've worked with first-hand. They ensured our very own Sarah-Leigh's wedding ran like clockwork plus they're our regular partners in the Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale, providing delicious treats in our pop-up tea rooms. Come and meet them next Sunday 16th February at Cams Hall!
What's new for Smallpiece Catering in 2014?
We are currently expanding into another premises with a separate kitchen, store , office & tasting area which will allow us to run everything from there. We are also working with three new venues this year.
Is there a 2014 event you're really looking forward to?
Our Birthdays?! The Big 50 & 30 & Climbing Snowdon?! Sorry, business related.... it is hard to single out an event, all of our weddings continue to be unique but we do have a wedding in March where the menu has been planned around the food from a visual aspect & is all about the food being displayed so this is very exciting, especially for the Chefs who get to do things very differently.
Do you have any regular sources of inspiration for food and events, any blogs or magazines?
Ann loves a trip to the Fruit & Veg Market to see what is in season and to barter. She also always refers back to her trusty old cookbooks but just adds a modern twist to recipes.
Is there a 2013 wedding or event you recall that you really loved?
Impossible to call, 2013 was an amazing year for us & we were very blessed to meet & work with the people that we did. Especially a few that will remain life long friends.
Could you recommend another supplier you love for our readers and why?
Still Moving DJ's.... These guys are incredible! Their unusual & different approach to music, DJing & performing is like no other, they even get the most unlikely suspects on to the dance floor.
