Member Focus – Greens Catering
Today we introduce you to our newest Wedding Supplier Member Greens Catering.
How did it all start?
I knew I was going to be a chef from a young age when I worked at a hotel. For 20 years of my life I was the head chef of Touch of Taste, a well-established catering company owned by Concerto. When they decided to lose the Oxford Kitchens, I saw the opportunity to create his own dream, so bought the kitchens and started up Greens Catering.
Do you have a favourite venue?
Yes, Hedsor House. It is stunning with great catering facilities. The Hell Fire Caves too as it is not only a beautiful venue but also is incredibly challenging; and I like a challenge.
How would clients describe you?
Reliable, Flexible, Fun and Fresh.
Wedding suppliers you particularly admire?
Marquees and Pavillions, Pop-up Hotel.
How do you unwind?
After a busy day in the kitchen I like to enjoy a plate of cheese, a glass of wine and catching up with my terrible twins and Perfect Partner, Deb.
What trends are you seeing for 2014/15?
Within the food world, there will be lots of steaming and poaching in wine, coffee, beer and smoky liquids. There will also be a lot of farm to table flavours including rabbit and pigeon.
In terms of weddings Greens thinks there will be a lot of ‘back to nature’ vibes. Classy but Natural.
What is your signature dish?
Guinea Fowl marinated in orange and ginger… Rosti potatoes and fine beans (Just what you ate when you came to visit us) ‘oooh I did and it was gorgeous’.
Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love work on?
What is your vice?
Eating all the wrong foods.
