All the best for your future work. Many thanks”

Amanda, High Halden

“May I take this opportunity of thanking you and Leni for all you did to make my birthday party so successful (we finally finished partying at 4am!). I have received many compliments on the standard of the food and I hope that you also did on the night – it was just perfect and the service you provided was also first-class. I shan’t hesitate to engage you again when the need arises and please add me to your list of referees should anyone else be as fussy as me!!”

Lynne & Michael, Tenterden

“Thank you so much for everything yesterday. You made our day run so smoothly. The food was really delicious – everybody said so – and the lemon macarons were to die for. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you and use you again.”

Cath Jonker, East Sussex

“Patricia and her team provided a catering management service at my sisters wedding in September 2011. Patricia was very professional in her approach, flexible and accommodating for what we needed for my sisters wedding, It was great and reassuring to hand over the running of the catering service to her and her team. Her team of waitresses on the day provided excellent friendly service. I would definitely recommend her services and use again in the future if needed.”

Laura, London

“Just a huge huge thank you to Patricia for her amazing client service! She provided food for a 30th birthday at a locally rented property and I truly now believe her when she says she can accommodate anything and all ideas. She was helpful with menu planning and all of our requests. The food was easy and amazing. The cake was delicious and rich and the effort she went to with a local cheese board was above and beyond! Don’t think twice about cooking yourself get Patricia instead!”

Mike & Pat, Tenterden

“We really did appreciate the buffet lunch that you prepared for us. From the salmon to the sweets, everything was super – a meal that we much enjoyed as did all our guests. We were grateful for the guidance you gave us beforehand as to selection etc, whilst having the food brought round to us as you did, ready plated for the table, made the occasion so easy for us. Thanks again”

Yolanda, Bexhill-on-Sea

“Dear Patricia, just a very big thank you again to you and to Jo for catering – and for being so much more – at my 10.10.10 ‘event’. You did a fantastic job, and so professionally. Everyone loved it, and you both really helped to make the day. Thank you again for everything you did to give us all such a relaxed, happy time.”

Sophie, Doddington

“Just home from our weekend (at the Country House Party) and wanted to say thanks again to you and your lovely assistants for the Saturday evening dinner! We are currently agreeing a date for 2011 – likely to be September and if possible we would love you to do the food again. I’ll be in touch! 🙂
All the left over food did get eaten and the truffles went down VERY VERY well – the best I have ever tasted!”

Gladys, Marden

Wishing you a very happy Christmas and we will certainly be in touch”

Jenifer, Marden

“Dear Patricia, you did a wonderful job, every single person commented on the delicious food and how lovely you were. Thank-you so very much for all you did to make it a really special party. It was of course especially good for me having nothing to do all day except to enjoy myself. There were enough people hanging around in the evening so the food was completely cleared up. Brilliant!”

Barry, Tenterden

“Thank you @passionatefood for fantastic catering at my party. Everyone enjoyed the food. I enjoyed the great service, hope to see you again”

Richard, Tenterden

“Determined to launch into my ‘OAP Years’ with a party to remember, I asked Patricia of Passionate Food to cater for my 65th birthday party.

“She produced a range of canapes for 35 people which were original, creative and – best of all – utterly delicious. On top of that, she made a cake of such chocolate intensity that we served what was left as a dinner party dessert two days later, and it was still fresh and moist.

“Everything was beautifully presented, and she even went to the trouble of arranging crockery, cutlery and glasses so we didn’t have to wash up after the party.

“I would have no hesitation in recommending Patricia and her team to anyone looking for food with style and great taste. Actually, I don’t have to – a number of friends who came to the party have already asked me for her details.”

Stephen, Canterbury

“Dear Patricia, just to thank you and your team for all the hard work you put in today to make Dad’s 100th birthday party such a lovely occasion. The food was excellent, and the hospitality generous and welcoming. Many people commented on the excellent catering, and we all came away feeling absolutely stuffed!”

Rosalie, Woodchurch

“Following a cake-baking lesson – Thank you very much for such an enjoyable (and informative) morning –and for all the other bits and pieces as well. My husband fell on the scones and rock cakes (all he’s been allowed at the moment) and demanded some to take down the farm tomorrow. Next door were equally impressed and I feel my street cred is rising … unfortunately not much is going in the freezer.”

Jane, Tenterden

“Dear Patricia, a little note to thank you so much for the scrumptious supper you made for us last Friday. We had a lovely evening and everyone said how much they had enjoyed the delicious food. You certainly did us proud!”

Richard & Jo, Tenterden

“Hello Patricia and thank you very much for yesterday. We were very pleased with both the food and the service.”

Julie, St Michaels

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for last Friday! Despite the horrible weather, the day was perfect and you all contributed to that. Your staff were attentive and helpful and the food was fantastic”

Angela, Woodchurch

“Dear Patricia, I would just like to say a big thank you, to you and your wonderful team for our excellent Art Club Xmas Lunch in the Village Hall the other Thursday. As usual everything was beautifully organised and the food delicious. I must apologise though, for the stress we caused with the power going off just before service. My fault for not realising the tokens worked the oven as well as the heating; also for the fan not working properly on said oven.

Despite all this you came up trumps. You and your lovely ladies who always look so immaculate, made the lunch a great success. I have no hesitation in recommending Passionate Food.”

Catherine and Gareth, Beckley

“Dear Patricia and Team, Thank you so much for all your hard work in the lead up to our wedding and on the day. The canapés and picnic meal were exactly what we had hoped for and looked and tasted wonderful. We really appreciate everything you did to make the day perfect”

Suezanne, Tenterden

“It was such an amazing day and the food was perfect. Thank you xx”

Mark, Tenterden

“The food was spot on and certainly added to what was a wonderful day. Many thanks to Passionate Food Ltd – you were wonderful”

Gay (Thorpe Bay), Tenterden

“Dear Mrs Wilson, I would like to thank you so much for the really splendid spread you produced for my aunts wake last Thursday. Both the table and the food looked most attractive and the buffet was excellent. Thank you once again”

Jenny & Graham, Sutton Valence

“Hi Patricia, We want say a BIG thank you for the part you played in making our party a successful one. Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was from the mini Yorkshire puds to the dressed salmon and coronation chicken and not to forget the tasty lemon roulade. You were friendly, professional and worked very hard to keep things flowing and going well. It was great for us to have time to chat to everyone and not worry about what was happening in the kitchen! You had it all under control, well done. We would not hesitate to recommend you”

Mary, Tenterden

“Dear Patricia, I would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for the really delicious savoury and sweet canapés which were enjoyed by everyone there and also the gracious way in which you and your helper served them.”

Chris, Headcorn

“Just a quickie to say a big ‘thank you’ for the food on Saturday evening. It all seemed to go down a treat. Probably a good thing that you couldn’t stay for the guitar session (too many drinks before!). Hope you enjoyed yourselves as well as everybody else. I think we finished about 3am.”

Fiona, Stone

“It was an AMAZING party – it was mine! The food was superb – canapes just kept coming and rather than a huge table loaded with food the buffet was replenished regularly so that everything was completely fresh. Finger buffet puddings were Patricia’s idea – and worked so well – much more refreshing and less formal than a table loaded with desserts.
Her team are relaxed and efficient – a difficult balance but really important and she succeeded at this so well. Couldn’t recommend Passionate Food more highly – the view held by out guests as well!”

Sarah, Hawkhurst

“I just wanted to say personally how lovely your food was for my party on 12th December. EVERYONE commented on the lovely quality and variation, the mini yorkshire puddings especially were a big hit 🙂 Hopefully I can recommend you to anyone else I know needing a caterer in the future.”

Helen and Alec, Hawkhurst

“We were all absolutely thrilled with the delicious food you prepared for our daughters’ 30th birthday party. She so wanted cocktails and canapes from 6pm, and you helped fulfil her dream. The winning canapes for most of us were the tiny yorkshires with fillet of beef, and the tiny baked potatoes with sour cream etc. But honestly it was all delicious. I had to rest a little in the afternoon, and to come down and find you there busy in the kitchen, preparing and getting on with it all was such a relief, after all our planning and preparation. We all felt extremely confident in your capable hands. Thank you again very much”

Margaret, Tenterden

“Dear Patricia, From all our family many thanks for catering so well for John’s funeral. It made life easier for us knowing that you had it in hand.”

Elaine, Tenterden

“Dear Patricia, thank you for cooking and serving such delicious vegetarian food at my retirement party. You worked so hard throughout the evening but you were always smiling.”

Debbie, Tunbridge Wells

“Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for your lovely food yesterday. Everyone raved about the canapes and the party was a great success. Please pass on my thanks to Jo.”

Gill and Gordon, St Michaels

“You recently catered for my son’s wedding in a marquee in our garden. That the food was superb in variety, quality, presentation and flavour did not surprise me – your well deserved reputation preceded you. The final star in the overwhelming success of the occasion goes to your personal excellent management on the day and the performance of your staff who expertly served the canapés, the bubbly and the main courses in a manner that ensured the whole event flowed seamlessly. All done with a smile and despite having to endure the intermittent downpours of rain”

Sian, Maidstone

“Hi Patricia, A great big thanks for an amazing meal, absolutely delicious! Loved by everyone. Wishing you a great 2015 and hope we meet again in the not too distant future!”

Richard and Emma, Rolvenden

“We just wanted to say what a fantastic spread you gave us yesterday for the funeral. We have had so many people say about it and asked who done it for us. Once again thanks for helping us make a difficult day that much easier and better”

Ian, Tenterden

“Dear Patricia, Thanks again for catering at our mother’s wake yesterday in Tenterden. The food was excellent and much enjoyed by all”

Lisa, Tenterden

I sampled everything. TWICE!!! Absolutely delicious. Patricia you are fantastic! We had such a wonderful afternoon at the most amazing venue. I need to sample the Boeuf Bourgignonne!!

Richard and Helen, Tenterden

“Dear Patricia, Just a note to say a very big ‘Thank You’ for all you did to make our Fizz ‘n’ Finger Food event such a great success on Saturday. Life may be too short to stuff a cherry tomato – but they ( and everything else you made) seemed to go down a storm”

Susie, Burwash

Hen Party at Country Cottage | “Thank you again for the service you provided last weekend. The girls all had a fantastic time and the dinner you served was exactly as I had hoped for. Hope to use you again in the future.”

Gill, Rolvenden

“Thank you – and your ladies – for such a splendid spread on Friday at Sandhurst Baptist Church in memory of my husband Jim. The guests were well pleased and so was I!”

Dawn, Tenterden

“Patricia and her Team at Passionate Food recently catered for the wake at Tenterden Town Hall following my Father’s funeral. Our requirements were simple (sandwiches and savouries with tea and coffee ) but on the day Patricia was able to deliver exactly what we had asked for in exactly the way we wished. The quality and presentation of the food was excellent and the team of Ladies serving were lovely. All in all Passionate Food made one part of a very difficult day a pleasure and many of our Guests commented on how impressed they were with our choice of catering company. I would have no hesitation in recommending Passionate Food to anyone.”

Yolanda, Bexhill-on-Sea

“Hi Patricia – Thank you for catering our Open House here on 18th April after Katie and David’s wedding. The food was great – everyone’s been complimenting you on it; and it was just so nice having you here with us – so professional and so nicely in charge. Thank you again and I do hope that all is going well with you and the business. With all good wishes …”

Yvonne and Robin, Marden

Everybody was so impressed by the layout and detail that you had taken. A special thank you to your helpers who were so considerate and efficient. It made our special day even more special. Thank you once more for a job well done.”

Nicola & Giles, Burwash Common

“I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your lovely team for making last night enjoyable for me and Giles – it was so lovely not to have be rushing around in the kitchen and to come down this morning to a clean and clear house.
Your canapes were absolutely delicious and I am so glad I have some little Yorkshire puds to freeze and use again in the New Year! If I have room in the car I will take them to Switzerland and give our Swiss neighbours a bit of English cuisine!
Many thanks for braving the roads and I really hope your party tomorrow is OK … ”

Jenifer, Marden

“Dear Patricia, thank you so very much for making our family birthday celebrations really special. Not only was your food simply delicious but you charmed everyone with your very friendly and relaxed disposition. Mum loved having you there, as indeed did I – she hasn’t stopped talking about it!”

Elizabeth, Charing

“Dear Patricia, please find enclosed my cheque for the party. I added a bit because you were all so kind and friendly and I thought, given the quality and standard of all that you did, your quote was very reasonable. Many thanks, it was a wonderful party.”
