OUR SERVICES

CONFERENCES

Davina Lovegreen Catering has been working in partnership with Thirsk Racecourse for the last 15 years, closely dealing with clients to deliver quality catering for conferences and events alike. We offer a range of services from simple hot drinks and homemade sandwiches to larger lunches and buffets, all of which can be personalised for specific dietary needs and special requests. You can find further details at www.thirskracecourse.net. Or you can simply get in touch with us with the details of your preferred venue, so we can discuss on-site catering for your event.

“The venue was excellent, exactly what we needed and the support and ‘nothing is a problem’ approach was exemplary.I have since received quite a number of comments from participants saying the same and that they would highly recommend yourself for future events.”

We look forward to continuing the association as marvellous food produced in unfamiliar conditions yet in a friendly and amicable atmosphere, are rare but greatly appreciated qualities.”

PRIVATE PARTIES

Well we all know that cooking for guests can be rather stressful, so why not take the pressure off, and have our team do the catering. There’s no need to splash out on a venue, you can remain in the comfort of your own home, and we’ll bring everything to you! For parties of any occasion, whatever the size, we’ll promise to deliver a memorable evening with our delicious menus and our discerning manner. Of course we can shape our menus around you and your guests, so feel free to get in touch and discuss courses with us. We will happily adapt our recipes for guests with food allergies - even just for those fussy eaters!

On several occasions, we have had the pleasure to work alongside renowned Yorkshire-based consultant chef Stephanie Moon - you might have seen her on BBC2’s Great British Menu back in 2011. These opportunities to work with Steph have allowed us to learn from each other and have hugely developed our own services and skills at Davina Lovegreen Catering. So if you’re interested in making a particular occasion extra special, then we can enrol the help of Stephanie Moon and design a menu that would be perfect for you and your celebrations. If you like the sound of this collaboration, then just drop us an email. 

CANAPE PARTIES

A mini fisha dn chip canape in a newspaper coneA sit down meal isn’t always what you want when you’re catching up with friends and family, especially if you struggle to fit all your guests around your dining-room table. That’s why we think a canapé party is sometimes the best way to feed your guests in the comfort of your own home. With the canapé-style party, you can have the freedom to mingle among your guests without being tied to the kitchen, whilst being offered a wide variety of delicious little-mouthfuls over the course of the evening. It’s the perfect service for any occasion. From our show stopper Black Pudding Scotch Eggs to our Salted Caramel Brownies, we can guarantee something for everybody - both savoury and sweet!

Here’s a feature list of our canapés for you to drool over…

BESPOKE

We realise that no party or guest is ever the same. That’s why we are always welcoming new thoughts, new ideas and new recipes so that we can continue to better ourselves and to better our services. So if you have any specific requests then don’t hesitate to get in touch. If you’re planning a party to a particular theme, then we will do our best to adhere to it, designing our menus around you.

Davina is our preferred caterer at Bramham and always produces delicious food, that is served with a smile. Davina listens to the brief and comes up with a great menu to suit the occasion - whether it be a relaxed soup and sandwich lunch or a full up three or four course meal with canapes. Delicious, home produced food that is mostly 'home grown' as well!
