Our Story

I believe that food should always be colourful, joyful and celebratory, whether enjoyed alone or en masse.

Food is the essence of celebration, community and expression. It is a gift, to oneself and to others. 

I cook with a passion and deep respect for food - both the ingredients and the dishes I create with them.

If you want food for your event to help inspire, celebrate and connect, please get in touch and I would be delighted to create a bespoke menu for you.

About Cat Rose

Home: Testimonials

I founded Cat Rose Cooks from a lifelong passion for food, and eating! As the daughter of a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef, cooking is in my blood, and my earliest and fondest memories of childhood are those days spent watching my Mother and, eventually, helping in the kitchen! From slowly adding oil, drop by drop, to make mayonnaise to Sunday Lunch Sous-Cheffing on peeling duty! I would watch, jaw aghast, as I watched a splash of vinegar being added to her famous meringues, learning that this was what gave them their marshmallowy-chewiness. The alchemy always fascinated me. You could say that my training started as a toddler! But I am forever learning - tasting, testing, trying and exploring the world of food so that I can create the most exciting and delicious dishes for you today.

What clients tell us

Cat Rose did the MOST phenomenal food for a special family gathering. I cannot sing her praises enough. If you want some beautiful and utterly scrumptious food for any occasion, she's your girl! I am still blown away.

It was epic! The food was delicious, my friends were blown away. Everyone complimented the food but the beef and goats cheese were particularly mentioned!

I think that was about the best chocolate cake we have ever had! Hoovered up! Thank you so much.
