I have known Simon for 4 years through my workplace and know him to be a reliable and hardworking chef. We have called on Simon’s skills for a variety of events such as our corporate Christmas parties and our annual clay shoot.

I approached Simon with an idea for a new fundraising event in 2014; a cooking competition with a twist to raise much needed funds for Whirlow Hall Farm Trust where I head up the Fundraising and Events department. Simon as always was enthusiastic and helped me by giving advice and signing up to donate his time to be one of the two chefs required for the event. The result was fantastic and we now have a very popular cooking competition with 240 diners attending the final each year.

The thing I love about working with Simon is he listens to your requirements and tailors his menus accordingly.

Simon has been such a help to Whirlow farm over the last few years where he has managed a number of events for us including our annual clay pigeon shoot, catering for up to 200 people and offering his services for our charity auction night; helping us to raise thousands of pounds for the charity by donating his time cooking at dinner parties for the winners. His food is always top notch and quality never suffers with high numbers which can often be the case when catering for large events.
