Always fresh, always home-made
My name is Eloise, after leaving school I trained as a chef and cooked in a variety of places from Oxford colleges to local hotels.
I stopped working in catering when my children were small to pursue a second career in Early Years, continuing to cook at home and in the pre-schools and nurseries where I worked, both for functions and with the children.
In 2017 I felt the time was right to return to my first and most enduring passion which was cooking so I started EP Caterers.
I am particularly proud to say I cook all the food myself, with the majority of the dishes cooked on the day of delivery, resulting in the most delicious, freshest food being delivered to your venue, everything will be freshly made using quality ingredients such as real butter, real fruits in the cakes and free-range eggs *.
I offer a variety of services but my love of baking particularly shines through in my vintage style afternoon teas. I can provide everything you need to make your event a success, the use of my lovely collection of vintage miss-matched china is included at no extra cost.
I offer a friendly, reliable and professional service, my aim is to take the worry out of planning your event and together we will plan the food that meets the requirements of all your guests and is perfect for your theme or type of event, every event booked will receive the same level of care and attention. I am happy to make your favourite recipes if they are not on already the menu.
I also endeavour to ensure a sustainable business, recycling and composting as much as possible, and keeping the use of single-use plastics to a minimum.
It's very important to to be part of the local community and I am proud that EP Caterers is able to support local charities and fundraising efforts.
