We have teamed up with Gayla at Select Catering and are pleased to be able to offer a fabulous menu of both ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook delicious meals. Gayla is an experienced caterer and uses local, seasonal produce in her meals, wherever possible. Select catering will also, if you require, provide a fully catered service, where Gayla will cook and serve the meals in the cottages.
On receipt of the balance for your holiday, we send a copy of the Select Catering Menu, for you to be able to browse. If you require anything from the menu, simply pop a cheque in the post and the meals will be in the fridge on your arrival at the Barn.
Besides great menus and food, Caroline can also provide you with a chef for your holiday
"Having been a cook for a number of years in ski lodges, yachts and private estates I started a recruitment agency for cooks over 10 years ago. We specialise in finding cooks for private and commercial clients from dinner parties to full time positions. I am available privately to cater for dinner parties or weekends. I regularly cater for large groups and enjoy providing a tailor made menu for smaller groups (including children). With the abundance of fresh and local produce available in the West Country I like to source all my food locally with the support of my local suppliers."
