The Event Kitchen is a small catering company based in the heart of the Dordogne, we specialise in catering for weddings and events across South West France.
Having worked in the catering and tourism industries for over 30 years we know delicious food and service is key to a great event. From the outset, we carefully answer questions on every detail so that the event day flows smoothly, just as you planned it. You can find out a little bit more about us here.
As one of the most significant occasions in your life, we understand how important your wedding day is to you both. Our approach is very much tailored so that we take the time to get to know couples and really understand exactly what their vision is for their day and what they are looking for in their caterer.
We will work closely with you to design the perfect menu that reflects your style and taste. We have a very wide range of sample menus for you to choose from, but that doesn’t mean we won’t create something that’s not in print!
Planning a wedding is a big job, but we will ensure you get the personal touch all the way through. To maintain standards and to give you our undivided attention we only cater for one wedding a week, which means our availability is limited!
We have developed a series of sample menus to prompt inspiration. If you're considering a sit down meal Presley has created a 5 course Sit Down menu that includes, Canapes, Starter, Main, Dessert, Cheese & Coffee, with a French influence, using fresh, seasonal produce and his take on some regional specialities. Many couples choose to have the cheese course served as a lovely cheese platter later in the evening.
If you're not looking for a sit down meal and wanting more of a social vibe then we can offer a Sharing Menu of beautiful sharing platters, grazing tables, food stations and a Hog Roast or BBQ Feast it's very much up to you.
We are located on the Dordogne and Charente border and will travel up to 1.5 hrs away, any further would incur additional costs as we would need to stay over. If there isn't a kitchen available that's not a problem, we are happy to bring our own. As mobile caterers we bring our own refrigeration, equipment and clear everything away at the end of the day. We can also hire crockery, cutlery, glasses and accessories to complement our food.
On the day, we will liaise with your principle person or wedding planner to help the day run smoothly. We work with an experienced team of servers that provide efficient service from start to finish, ensuring you and your guests can relax and enjoy your wedding celebrations. You can be assured of our care throughout the day.
To ensure we're the right caterer for you, firstly we like to meet you both over a Skype / facetime call to fully understand your requirements from the outset and to answer any questions you may have. Leading up to your wedding we are available to chat and will guide you through the final details of menu choices, table plans, timings etc.
