“I was very impressed with Sam from the get-go. She put together a lovely menu based on our conversation. Sam kept me involved at all times about any extra ideas she had.
On the day Sam came very prepared with everything; smart plates/dishes for serving & all her equipment and food.
She kept the mood calm before the party and instructed staff what to do.
The food looked very appealing and she arranged it very artistically. It was absolutely delicious and I received many compliments from the guests. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Sam again for another event or recommend her to anyone. “
“My dad and I wanted something special to celebrate my mum’s 70th birthday. Sam Pollard and team were the perfect choice – her contemporary approach to afternoon tea was just brilliant! I can taste those chocolate eclairs and brownies even now. I should also mention that the way Sam dealt with an admin hiccup the day before the event – which was all our fault – was fantastic too.”
“It was the most incredible dining experience I’ve ever had and such a treat. Your cooking and presentation was just so beautiful’’
” Just wanted to say a huge thank you from both of us for the spectacular feast that you created for our birthday tea. The food was amazing, everyone raved and it was exactly spot on. We loved it!”
“I am so grateful to you for showing me how to entertain with style and ease! Without your help I would not have attempted such a large gathering. I’m still receiving a flood of emails praising your food. I’m already looking forward to our next collaboration!!!”
“Sam cooked beautiful food for 35 – couldn’t recommend too highly”
”Sam is a passionate cook, so knowledgeable and full of great tips, skilled at engaging everyone and fabulous with kids”
“Thank you so much for cooking for us, the food was really excellent, everyone was very complimentary about it. Your lovely dishes, that looked and tasted so wonderful, helped make the occasion very special for me. And you did it all so calmly and nervelessly!”
“Sam – thank you so much for the delicious and utterly beautiful looking festive dinner which you prepared for my family. It was a delight to relax and let you and your team do all the hard work. We all enjoyed it so much we are already planning other events we can use you for.”
“I just wanted to drop a note to say thanks for a truly terrific evening on Sunday. The food was excellent and all our guests are still raving about it. You and your team were fantastic and we were at ease all night knowing you were in charge”
“Thank you very, very much for providing such a magnificent spread, and with such calm efficiency. Words almost fail me to describe the wonderful appearance and superb taste of all the food – but they did not fail the guests who were universal in their exclamations of delight and appreciation.
The waitresses too were so pleasant and capable. You all together provided us with a gloriously memorable afternoon.”
“Sam catered for a party of 60. It was a retirement and 70th birthday party which, initially, I had intended to cater myself. How crazy was that! So, having tasted Sam’s delicious food previously at a friend’s party, I came to my senses and decided to contact her. It was the best decision ever and the party was a great success thanks to Sam and her team. The guests were full of praise.”
“Thank you so much for a truly delicious feast last night. We were both so very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed your food. You are a talented chef!”
”Thank you for a wonderful Birthday treat, I so enjoyed the baking session with Sam and the girls”
