Clients & Catering Testimonials
Afternoon conference hot drinks, service, finger food and wine reception.
“Eco cuisine provided tea, coffee and other drinks for the duration of the event, and wine, juice and delicious finger food for the subsequent reception, at our event for 75 guests in December 2012.
Sonya and her team were efficient, capable, unobtrusive, flexible, courteous and a pleasure to work with throughout, and I am happy to recommend eco cuisine to any organisation looking for catering which is all of the above and which also takes proper account of the ecological and social footprint of what is being eaten and drunk.”
Ray Cunningham, Green Think Tank
Sandwich platter lunch event
“We were very pleased with the quality and range of the food we received from eco cuisine. The service was excellent, prompt and especially helpful with specific dietary requirements.”
Lois Wooffitt, Christians against Poverty
Canapé and drinks service
“Sonya provided the catering for a networking event I organised and it was universally well received by the guests – organic and sustainably sourced, interesting seasonal choices, and absolutely delicious. Sonya was a pleasure to work with from initial tasting to final clear up, and she also organised all the service on the night and provided an excellent team of waiting staff. She was also extremely good value for money. Thoroughly recommended from every perspective.”

Hot buffet option
“I came to Eco Cuisine looking for a menu that was a bit different from your usual buffet style food for my mums 70th birthday. Sonya provided me with a fantastic range of options from which we chose four. The service they provided was excellent and more importantly, everybody commented on how great the food was. I can thoroughly recommend Eco Cuisine to anybody considering them for catering their event.”

Camilla Stevenson Executive Assistant, London Wildlife Trust.
Wedding – picnic style buffet
“I was a bit worried about engaging eco warriors to do the catering for our wedding. Worried that it might be healthy, wholesome and boring. But all of our guests commented on how good the food was and nobody complained that there wasn’t enough. The whole experience from choosing the menu to the food, drink and service on the day was a pleasure.”
Registration drinks, coffee break, hot fork buffet lunch
“I used eco cuisine for our catering at our venue in the centre of London for which we had no facilities in house. The communications prior to the event were friendly and very understanding of what we wanted, delivery on the day was professional and the food, most importantly, was very good. A catering company that provide a great selection of locally sourced and organic food, cooked and served where ever you need it and at a very good price to match is perfect.”
Graeme Elliott, Events Coordinator – Coventry University
“All of us here at ClearlySo wanted to say a BIG THANKYOU for providing the food for our social business conference this year. We all really appreciated the work that you and your staff did for us, on and before the day.” Richard (Director ClearlySo)
Canape and drinks reception
“Dear Sonya, A belated but sincere thanks for the excellent food on Tuesday night – I’ve had lots of positive feedback.Do pass on my thanks also to your colleagues for helping on the night – it was all so seamless I didn’t have to think about it at all, which was wonderful! Rest assured I shall be recommending you to anyone who asks, and will be in touch should I ever need something similar again.”

Working buffet lunches and breakfasts
“I have used eco cuisine for catering working lunches on numerous occasions now and always find the food to be of a high quality, tasty and true to the organic and ethical values that they have. Sonya is easy to work with and reliable. I would definitely recommend eco cuisine to other organisations.”
Jen Morgan WWF-UK.
“The food was excellent, and everybody seemed to really enjoy it. We had lots of positive comments about it, and people were impressed by the ethical sourcing of all the ingredients and the biodegradable crockery. Our vegetarians and others with dietary requirements especially appreciated the effort. Thanks again for helping to make our day go so smoothly.”
Regards, Robbie & Shuri
“I’d had the pleasure of sampling Sonya’s catering at a work event and from that moment I knew that if my boyfriend ever asked me to marry him I would definitely want Sonya to cater for the wedding!. When the wedding finally came, Sonya didn’t disappoint. From the very beginning the service was friendly and very personal and every effort was gone to, to get everything right, such as visiting our venue in her own time. On the day the food was excellent and Sonya’s serving staff were friendly and efficient. 3 months on we are still receiving positive feedback from our guests, especially about the to die for cheesecake! For us it was also very important to be able to maintain our ethics when organising our wedding, so we really appreciated the local sourcing and use of organic ingredients. Thank you so much for helping to make our amazing day!”
Tanya and Ben – The Bride and Groom
“Sonya has now catered for two events I have organised and I have booked her for two more. Not only have the lunches been of excellent quality and variety, delicious and much praised (especially the chocolate brownies!) but Sonya’s flexible and open approach made negotiations a pleasure.”
Hazel Gardiner UCL Catch 22
16th Birthday Party Canape Reception
“When we decided to invite our clients, partners, associates and trustees to our office to celebrate out Sweet 16th Birthday we wanted to show them how you could have a fabulous party and still be green! Well, actually Pink (it was a Sweet 16 after all) but Green on the inside. As a leading organisation working on environmental behaviour change we never expected to find a caterer who lived up to the very high environmental and ethical standards that we pride ourselves on having –- but to our delight we did with Eco Cuisine. Local, organic, sustainable, absolutely minimum waste, cost effective, and lovely staff – and it tasted delicious too!”
Louise Groom, Events Manager – Global Action Plan
Finger buffet for 300
“Hi Sonya, Thank you so much! It all went well. They wolfed down the food! Many thanks.”
Rachel Segal Hamilton, Envision
Organic dinner for 4
“Dear Sonya, I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for cooking us such a lovely meal on Friday. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food and I especially liked not having to do the cooking!! Tim and I finished off the squash risotto with a slice of pavlova for our lunch on Saturday so we were able to extend the experience so thanks for leaving that for us. I hope you had a good trip back down the A30 to your parents and found your way across the City ok.”
Alison – Yeo Valley organic prize winner
Delivered cold finger food buffet
“The food was very good and certainly sufficient. I would certainly recommend your service to others.”
Sussan Rassoulie – Circle Anglia Housing Trust.
Wedding buffet lunch and pasty supper
“Hi Sonya, Dan and I would just like to say thank you so much for all your hard work on Saturday. The food was wonderful and lots of friends have commented on how good it was. There was just the right amount – we also really appreciated you coming back to delivery the warm pasties, which were very tasty. Thank you for making it a very special day for us.”
“We all enjoyed the food you provided for us and the variety of different finger foods to cater for our vegan and vegetarian guests. Everybody raved about the presentation and the organicness! Delivery was quick and Sonya was really easy to work with.”
Skye at the Women’s Resource Centre, EC1
“Sonya prepared a very healthy and appetizing selection of dishes for my 40th birthday and was careful to work to an agreed plan and budget. The sushi and vegetarian options were particularly good and the food was very popular. Sonya uses locally sourced produce and prepares most of the food at home so that minimizes mess and stress at the venue. We would recommend her food and service to other customers.”
Christina, Crouch End
Cold buffet, bbq and dinner party
“It’s great to have Sonya catering for you, of course her food is delicious – but she’s also such fun – always smiling and ready with a joke – I’d never have anyone else cater for my parties.”
Jules Hall, Guildford
“I probably gave Sonya the most difficult of briefs – i.e. no brief. I had 16 people turning up for an afternoon who needed to be watered and fed. Ages ranged from 2 to 62 years. The venue was my small flat and the kitchen is no larger than a cooker and a fridge.
The group returned to my flat which had been transformed into a Christmas scene: music was playing: party treats for the children were handed out: the table was decorated with a Snowman cake centre-piece and the food smelt (and subsequently tasted) fantastic. Everyone in the group was gobsmacked.
What Sonya had managed to do was something overlooked by many: finishing touches made the day and will be remembered forever. Added to which the food and rink had been carefully planned to cater for every age group. As a measure of the success of the day, the fact I as host was able to join in the fun rather than worry about anything says it all.
Thankyou Sonya for making a potentially stressful day a most enjoyable one.”
Peter Muffett, Wandsworth
