Welcome to catering-online. My name is Bob and this is a new venture for me.
My plan is to save you money and spread a bit of kindness.
Whether you are a professional caterer; you cook for pleasure; you are a foodie; or you simply cook to eat, then you are most welcome to join this catering hub.
I would love this site to become an encouraging community of like-minded people. Whether you need inspiration to create a cheap menu; you want to know what to look for when choosing a caterer for your big event; or how to keep the costs down; or even help to find a job; - if it’s related to food and catering, then you’ve come to the right place.
With 40 years of experience in the catering industry I’d love the opportunity to help you if I can. I don’t profess to know everything about catering, but if I can’t help perhaps someone else in the catering hub can.
Let's spread a bit of kindness. There are a number of catering establishments that help others e.g. those in financial hardship, and I am in the process of displaying what they do on this site. My hope is that this will encourage others to do the same. I would love to hear from you if you have any ideas on what else could be done, and to let me know who else I can showcase.
A little about me – I trained as a chef when I left school. I have worked in hotels, industrial kitchens, charitable organisations, TV studios, commercial businesses and education. Shortly after I married I set up my own catering recruitment agency. When my twin daughters came onto the scene I had to change my career direction as late night phone calls from clients demanding breakfast chefs the following morning weren’t conducive to a happy family life!!! For the last 18 years I have run my own catering company.
I’m now suffering with the empty nest syndrome as my daughters have gone to university – but I finally have the blog I’ve been meaning to write for some time!
I'd love to hear from you.
