Welcome to catering-online. My name is Bob and and my wife is Jane and this is a new venture for us.
Our 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.
We 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 we’d love the opportunity to help you if we can. We don’t profess to know everything about catering, but if we 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 we are in the process of displaying what they do on this site. Our hope is that this will encourage others to do the same. We would love to hear from you if you have any ideas on what else could be done, and to let us know who else we can showcase.
A little about me (Bob) – 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.
We are both now suffering with the empty nest syndrome as our daughters have gone to university – but we finally have the blog we’ve been meaning to write for some time!
We’d love to hear from you.
