It’s always hard to recommend an outside catering company, as you only ever come across them at a wedding say or a funeral. But we’ve sampled the cooking of Helen Lewis and Sally Duncan – Lewis & Duncan Outside Caterers and trust us, they’re good.
Their new website www.lewisandduncan.catering tells you that Sally worked in Hong Kong for years – so you can order Asian inspired dishes like her rice vermicelli and cabbage salad with almond, coconut dressing and coriander, radish salsa – and Helen is a pastry chef who will knock up a chocolate torte or a almond and quince tart at the drop of a hat. They do imaginative veggie and vegan dishes too.
We first came across them at Cabra Verde in Peter Lane in York, followed them to the Fulford Arms, and later a dinner to launch their outside catering company and we can confirm that they will never send out cold quiche and curling sandwiches. So when you are next having a bit of do, pick up the phone. Lewis & Duncan Catering 01904 653561/07506 firstname.lastname@example.org
