Whatever type of celebration you’re planning, Mark will create an event to remember, whether it is a more formal special occasion, a relaxed family gathering or party. This amazing company will help you create a menu around your budget, special occasion, desired tastes, dietary requirements and needs. Their delicious and honest food, with its focus on fresh, local and seasonal produce, ensures you are truly experiencing the best of Derbyshire during your stay in the Peak District, all served in the comfort of our cottage.
For something slightly more informal Mark can offer canapes and cocktails, or bowl food (Bowl food is more substantial than canapés and is an excellent alternative to a full meal or buffet without the need for formal seating and is great for larger numbers).
Mark has over 20 years professional experience and a proven track record, gaining multiple awards and medals along the way. Most recently he was head chef at Derby’s most prestigious restaurant Darley’s for 9 years, maintaining a Michelin Guide listing and 2 AA Rosettes throughout. He’s travelled extensively gaining knowledge and inspiration from different food cultures and ingredients he’s sampled along the way, this is reflected in his cooking. Now Mark brings all this experience to event catering using his passion and knowledge to create bold, unpretentious food for you to enjoy.
