Jenny and Jonathan's 30th Wedding Anniversary Celebration, Tapas and Paella for 75 guests on 05/08/17, Petersfield, Hampshire
Thank you so much for catering our wedding yesterday. We had such a fabulous day and thoroughly enjoyed our hog roast. We had so many complements on the food, particularly the vegetarians who loved their mushrooms (I believe one of them even asked for the recipe!). I would absolutely recommend EpiCatering to anyone looking for exceptional customer service and wonderful food. You catered for every dietary requirement (with a few last minute changes!) and it felt like nothing was too much trouble. Thank you again for helping to make our day so special. With love from Charlie and Howard AKA Mr and Mrs Todman! xxx

Corporate Party, BBQ and Dessert for 130 guests on 01/08/17, Crawley, West Sussex
Hi Guys, Just an email to say thanks so much for catering our wedding. It's always hard because you choose these things without doing a trial or tasting or knowing what you guys were like. Safe to say you absolutely smashed it!! We have had so many compliments on the food and how much there was and it's all thanks to you guys! It was absolutely wonderful and the rain didn't put you off once!!

Beth and Matt's Wedding Celebration, Canapés and BBQ for 70 guests on 01/07/17, Ashington, West Sussex
Absolutely wonderful. Epic Catering catered our wedding in June and they were marvellous- extremely efficient and quick to respond. We had a marvellous tasting session ahead of the day and on the wedding all of the guests commented on how good the food was. Everyone was raving about the beef, some even saying it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Excellent value and lovely people. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Clare and Tom's Wedding Celebration, Barbecue for 112 guests on 24/06/17, The Yoghurt Rooms, East Grinstead, West Sussex
Marcus and his team provided us with a sublime service, both before and during my daughters wedding this weekend. Marcus is always courteous and does his utmost to provide for the wishes of the clients, which is something we found difficult to achieve from all the other caterers we approached. The majority of caterers have their own agenda. Marcus not only provided everything we asked to a superior degree he also did so in temperatures of 90degrees plus in our garden! Many of our 110 guests have asked for details of his website which speaks volumes. From my first enquiry to the clearing of the site after the event, superior service, kindness, understanding and food that makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Thank you Epicatering from Mother of the bride
Harry and Danielle's Wedding Reception, Canapés, Antipasti, Italian Pulled Lamb and Dessert for 110 guests on 17/06/17, Edenbridge, Kent
EpiCatering provided the catering for our wedding in May 2017 and provided a brilliant service. So many of the guests complimented the food and, thanks to Marcus, Tracey and the team, the whole day ran very smoothly. I'm really glad both we managed to grab a few canapés ourselves before we were whisked of for photos, they (and the paella and hog roast) were all fantastic!
Mark and Jen's Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Paella, Dessert, Hog Roast for 130 guests on 26/05/17, The Reid Rooms, Dunmow, Essex

Doug & Lara's Wedding Reception, 125 guests on 10/06/17, Bramley, Surrey
Hi Marcus, Thank you for everything on Friday. So many of the guests complimented the food and, thanks to you, Tracey and the team, the whole day ran very smoothly. I'm really glad both me and Jen managed to grab a few canapés ourselves before we were whisked of for photos too, they (and the paella and hog roast, of course) were all fantastic. Hope you had a good journey back and rest assured we'll be recommending you to anyone hosting an event in future, especially if it is closer to you than Essex. Thanks again for all your help! Kind regards, Mark & Jen

Lisa's 50th Birthday Party, Hog Roast and Whole Sides of Salmon for 95 guests on 20/05/17, Shipley, West Sussex
Dear Marcus and Tracey, I just want to send the thanks of ourselves and our guest for the fantastic meal for our birthday celebrations on Saturday. It was all done so unobtrusively and professionally even though there was a gale blowing! Everyone said how much they enjoyed the meal and that it was a novelty having paella. I was also impressed how patient you were with the children 'helping' - it certainly made my grandsons day! I am perfectly happy to give you a reference to anyone who might want one. Regards and many thanks, Diane

Vicky and David's Wedding Celebration, Canapés and BBQ for 98 guests on 29/04/17, Bartholomew Barn, Kirdford, West Sussex
We just wanted to email you to say a very big thank you for facilitating such a wonderful celebration for us. From start to finish it was faultless and took the stress out of hosting Harry's Baptism. The professional, calm and courteous approach, from the entire team, allowed Ian and I to relax and enjoy the party from start to finish. Your waiting staff were equally exceptional. I will forward you just a few of the many complimentary texts we received following the event. We would be very happy for you to use any of these comments / quotes as testimonials. We can't thank you enough and we will definitely be returning for future events. We wish you and your business every success. It truly deserves to continue to go from strength to strength. Tracey, the 'Mr Tom's' were a lovely surprise after school. It was very kind of you. Warmest regards, Cath & Ian
Harry's Baptism Party, 50 guests on 19/02/17, Brighton, East Sussex
Incredible!!!! Above and beyond what a caterer should do! My husband and I took a very laid back approach to the organization of the wedding and were incredibly lucky that Marcus took it upon himself to organize most of the companies we needed for the day! He was more of a wedding planner than a caterer! We paid said companies through Marcus and he made a pack of all our invoices which he updated regularly. We were incredibly impressed and gratified before we even tasted the food but were blown away when we tasted it on the day. We chose to have nibbles followed by a hog roast (with plates of crackling served before) and 2 huge pans of Paella, seafood and vegetarian. All of this was delicious, miles above your normal wedding menu. We then had cheese plates later on which were also delicious. I could not rate this business any higher. Thank you Marcus and team!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hannah and Robert

Wedding Celebration, BBQ and Dessert for 55 guests, Hog Roast for the evening food for 62 guests, 22/10/16, Brighton, East Sussex
I can honestly say lots of people were blown away by the food. You guys smashed it. Love that the sirloin was medium and you managed to keep the salmon moist in a massive paella pan. You had quite a few chefs eating and they all loved it! We've passed your details onto quite a few people and Mycenae House have added you to the suggested caterers. Thanks so much again. The amount of food cooked definitely helped people to stay a bit sober!
Wedding Celebration, Barbecue for 120 guests, 08/10/16, Mycenae House, Greenwich, London
Marcus and his team deserve all the stars in the world! We hired them for our wedding in September, and I honestly don't think I could have done it without them. From the very first call I made, I found Marcus exceptionally reassuring and helpful. I've never experienced someone so willing to go the extra mile. In the run up to the wedding we were going through a rather difficult time, and about a month before the big day, I rang Marcus in a total stress (sorry Marcus!). From there he pretty much became our unofficial wedding planner (again sorry Marcus!). He went totally out of his way to help, hiring in all the wait staff, and even contracting in our outside rentals. He was always on the other end of the phone helping me out, and I really can't thank him enough. Thanks to him, and his exceptionally professional team, our wedding BBQ went off without a hitch. The food was delicious, people have not stopped raving about the burgers and jerk chicken! The wait staff, were exceptionally attentive and really made me feel everything was under control. Overall, if you want someone who is going to go out of their way to make your event the best it can be, someone who really cares, and delivers yummy food to boot, Marcus and his team are the ones for you! Would recommend until I was blue in the face. Thank you Marcus for everything you did, we are so enormously grateful.
Wedding Celebration, BBQ and desserts for 117 guests, 03/09/16, Chesterton, Cambridge
Thank you so much for all your help on Saturday and in the lead up to it. We got so many positive comments about your service and the food (the jerk chicken went down a storm!). Thank you also for staying calm and patient when we were running late. Thanks to you all again, you were great. Kind regards, Michelle & James

Birthday Party, Canapés and Paella for 50 guests, 17/09/16, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex
Please pass on our warmest thanks to Tracey and Richard for the great job they did yesterday in difficult weather conditions. Even when the power supply to the deep fat fryers failed they " kept calm and carried on ". Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the tapas and you were right there was more than enough for everyone. Some members of the Selborne Wine Society Committee were present and are already wondering about asking you to quote for their next big bash! Kind Regards, Denise

Wedding Celebration, BBQ and Dessert for 61 guests, 20/08/16, The Night Yard, Bridge, Kent
The feedback from the party has been absolutely fantastic, very largely due to your wonderful catering! As well as many verbal comments we received on the night about how good the food was, particularly the jerk chicken, which several people mentioned specifically as being particularly delicious, here are some of the comments in emails we’ve received so far: “ … such generous hospitality to young and old. The food was fantastic as well.” “… a tremendous set up - from the marquee, to the catering (we won't need to eat for a week)! to the line up!” “Fantastic setting and great food and drink.” “A splendid evening – good food, nice beer, great company, top music – what more can you ask for….. “ “Catering, company and entertainment were all excellent.” Very many thanks to you, Tracey and Harry for your absolutely excellent service – we will certainly recommend you whenever we have the chance! All the best Ian
Summer Celebration, BBQ and Dessert for 120 guests, 13/08/16, Chipstead, Surrey
Thank-you so much for catering for our in-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary garden party this weekend. 60 guests were served a choice of three absolutely amazing Paellas - Fish, Meat and Vegetarian with a side of salads and french bread. Adults and children alike loved the Paella and my 11 year old nephew even asked for the recipe. The price per head was really reasonable and worth every penny. It included all the crockery and cutlery which was a lovely finishing touch (and they took it away to wash up). Both Marcus and Tracey were great to deal with and we will most certainly use them for our next party.
Golden Wedding Celebration, Paella for 60 guests, 06/08/16, Burgess Hill, West Sussex
Marcus and his team are very professional and produce amazing food which is served with a smile. We had a lovely wedding with hog roast and paella - everything was delicious. The breakfast the morning after was also very well received. I would happily recommend EpiCatering to anyone planning a function -their function knowledge is second to none and can help with glass hire and seating.

Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Hog Roast, BBQ and Dessert for 90 guests, 16/07/16, Arundel, West Sussex
Marcus and team catered for our two night wedding, the BBQ served on the first night was delicious, as where the canapés and paella on the second night, they got rave reviews from our guests! I would highly recommend Epi catering, not only is the food great but the service is second to none. Nothing was too much touble, they moved timings of the BBQ at very short notice (due to guests stuck in traffic!) and catered for our gluten free guest, including making direct contact with her to check menu options. Thank you for the fantastic food and service on our big day!!

High Sheriff of West Sussex Event, 432 guests for canapés and bubbly, 24/07/16, Slindon Common, West Sussex
We used Marcus to do the catering for our wedding. I would recommend to anyone organising a wedding that the first person you book for any part of it is Marcus. He went above and beyond in helping with the organising and flow of the day. Nothing was a problem to him and he listened to what we wanted and made it all work. And also the food was really really GREAT! One of my daughters said she wanted Marcus to cook for us everyday after the wedding because he's "properly professional" and I couldn't agree more.

Stock Flower Festival, Malaysian Chicken Curry for 267 guests, 17/06/16, Stock, Essex
Marcus was so great to work with. He was very clear with all the communication beforehand and really listened to what I wanted. He anticipated areas where extra help might be needed. He directed our own waitering staff and in addition to cooking a really delicious meal for 120 guests, he also chilled our wine and took away dirty dishes.. The hog roast was tender and delicious , the crackling crispy, and all accompanying sides were freshly cooked in paella pans so that the guests could see the preparation. Thank you Marcus and Tracey for a stress free catering experience ..Congrats! x
Wedding Celebration, Hog Roast for 120 guests, 11/06/16, Abingdon, Oxfordshire
We just wanted to pass on how many of our 80 guests mentioned how much they enjoyed the meal at the joint birthday party we held for Mike and Terry at the weekend. Thank you for outstanding service and delicious paella; the number of takers for seconds says it all! Well done to Marcus and to Harry, we are happy to recommend you to all enquirers. Catherine and Mike

Marcus & Tracey were truly fantastic! They catered for my 50th Birthday party and the service pre, during & post event was first class! Nothing was too much trouble & the evening ran without a hitch! The rave reviews I've had for the paellas & puds are testament to the outstanding quality of food & service given by epicatering! Thank you Marcus & Tracey for making the evening such a success & I didn't have to do the washing up!

Matthew and I are so glad that we chose the team to cater our wedding. Food was absolutely delicious, everyone was raving about it and Marcus could not do enough to make sure our day went the way we wanted it to. Thank you so much for everything! I also spoke to Nat who I think is keen to put your name down as a recommended caterer for future events, so hoping you get some good business.

Wedding Celebration, Paella and Dessert for 70 guests, 07/05/16, Billingshurst, West Sussex
I can only echo all of the other great reviews that Tracey and Marcus have received to date. Epicatering's service was flawless from start to finish. All communication from Marcus in advance of our party was thorough, clear and reassuring...including the answers to my endless questions. When it came to the day itself, they turned up on time and set up quietly and efficiently. ALL of the food was absolutely delicious and full of very tasty flavours. And the service was highly professional. Without exception, our guests were very complimentary about the food. I would be very surprised if we don't encounter Tracey and Marcus at one of our friends' parties in the next year. We will certainly be getting in touch next time we have a party. I would highly recommend Epicatering for any catering requirement. Kristel
Birthday Party, BBQ for 50 guests, 09/01/16, Bletchingley, Surrey
All was excellent. Tracey arrived at the exact time specified and just got on with the job with her assistant. The food was superb. Hot, plenty of it and served with a smile (not hard really as we were all in fancy dress with a theme of Monopoly! ) The paella was delicious and the different contents shone out. Plenty of choice for our guests. All of our guests commented favourably on the food and your staff. If you have any paperwork/flyers that we could pass on to our friends that would be great. I am sure you will hear from a few of them before too long. We will certainly spread the word. A very professional job, well done. Thank you so much. Best regards for a Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year to you and your charming staff, Roger
Birthday Celebration, Paella for 55 guests, 11/12/15, Burgess Hill, West Sussex
I was so impressed by the quality and taste of the food provided by Epicatering at our friends' wedding anniversary. The canapés were outstanding in both taste and texture but also of a decent size - I do like canapés to be more than a small bite and at least half a mouthful. The flavours were fresh, distinctive and well balanced. The main course of steak with vegetables was well cooked and again full of flavour and the desserts were all tempting and perfect in portion, presentation and taste. All was finished off with 'good' coffee and home-made truffles and chocolates. Delicious. The group all commented on the excellent meal as we savoured the final chocolates. Best wishes, Pete
50th Wedding Anniversary, Canapés, BBQ and Dessert for 55 guests, 15/08/15, Norton Disney, Lincolnshire
Quite simply Marcus and Tracey were brilliant in every way and couldn't be more helpful in the planning and the event itself. There was no fuss or stress at all and everything was done to an extremely high standard. My friends are still talking about nice the food was (and they are not easily impressed). Honestly I couldn't recommend EpiCatering high enough. We were absolutely delighted with everything. Mark and Liz.
50th Birthday Bash, Canapés and Malaysian Chicken Curry for 60 guests, 19/09/15, Brighton, East Sussex
We had a garden party for nearly 100 people and Marcus and Tracey handled it brilliantly. The food was fabulous (the salmon and prawn teriyaki kebabs were exceptional) and the service was very friendly and extremely professional. They looked after our guests incredibly well and dealt with all our last minute requests with ease. We had many compliments from our guests regarding EpiCatering. We would have no hesitation in recommending EpiCatering to anyone who is looking for top quality food and service. Blair and Tamzin.

EpiCatering delivered exceptional food and service at our party this weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Despite there being a lot of equipment to set up and take away, we hardly knew they were there. The paella they served was delicious and loaded with fresh ingredients. All of our guests commented on how friendly Marcus and Tracey were and how tasty the food was. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone requiring party catering. Thank you so much for contributing to the success of our party.’ Thanks once again. You were brilliant. Regards, Sheila and James x

Thank you so much Epicatering! Marcus and Tracey you were amazing and your food was dangerously good! From the first contact you were great, you were both so nice and helpful, we couldn't have asked for more. There was lots of choices from the menu and those kebabs were perfection. Nobody had anything negative to say, you and your food were a delight to have at our wedding celebration. I am sure we will be meeting and eating again in the future. Thank you so much again Epicatering! Max and Leanne

Hello Marcus, The catering for the "Golden Wedding" celebration, we recently attended, was absolutely superb. You certainly "pulled out all the stops" presenting such attractive, inventive and tasty fare. The beef was exceptionally tender, succulent and delicious! Well done to your organisation, for the obvious hard work and attention to detail! Best Wishes Peta and John
50th Wedding Anniversary, Canapés, BBQ and Dessert for 55 guests, 15/08/15, Norton Disney, Lincolnshire
Marcus and his team provided the catering for our wedding this summer. From the initial contact, to the catering on the day we could not fault the service. Marcus was highly professional, friendly and provided outstanding food. People still comment how wonderful the food was on the day, especially the great canapés. The service the team provided was so smooth we didn't need to worry about anything on the day. I would have no hesitation recommending EpiCatering to anyone looking for hassle free catering for an event. Thank you, you really help to make the day a memorable happy day. Emma and Rob
Wedding Celebration, Canapés and Paella for 63 guests, 31/07/15, Chelwood Gate, East Sussex
Epicatering supplied all the food and catering for my daughter's 21st birthday party for about 60 people. The food got rave reviews from everyone and was absolutely delicious, a special mention is needed for the Halloumi kebabs, the Spanish chorizo, chicken & smoked ham paella and the salmon and prawn skewers - although everything was fantastic. The food at any event can make or break the day, and Epicatering made our day! All of our guests complimented us on the food and most had at least 'seconds', if not 'thirds'. Marcus and his team were at all times prompt, efficient, smart and courteous - willing to put themselves out to ensure everything went smoothly and accommodated all our wishes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them wholeheartedly.

Finally getting around to thanking the relevant people for fantastic service provided at our wedding last week. The Paella you served was utterly delicious and the service was faultless. It was just wonderful and so many guests commented on what a great idea it was for evening food

Dear Marcus, I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how last night went and how incredible the food was. Tracey and her team were wonderful, she really is such a lovely lady. The food was described by many as the best ever for the summer ball. Really flavoursome with a nice little kick to it. Great feedback all round. Tiramisu was also a massive hit. Thank you all for being so wonderfully professional and making my first ever summer ball brilliant. It’s looking like the 2nd of July next year, can we pencil you in? Kindest regards Amanda

At the booking stage, Marcus is friendly, polite, communicative, professional, punctual, accommodating and clearly dedicated. We have been fortunate enough to have EpiCatering cater our last four annual events and all have been a huge success. No request has proven too great and no detail too small for Marcus, who is always happy to accommodate our needs. With diversity in their menu and reasonable prices we are always happy to welcome them back. At the events Marcus, Tracey and their team are always polite, presentable and helpful to our guests. The diverse and regularly changing menu makes a nice change from the usual buffet type corporate affair, which our guests have always remarked upon and enjoyed. Their portions are generous, the food excellent, flavourful and authentic. I would wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend EpiCatering (and can't wait til our next event!).

Hi Marcus, I just wanted to say thank you once again for providing such an incredible service for our wedding day. The food went down an absolute storm and everybody was talking about it and how impressed they were with you and the team! We got what we asked for and more, so thank you very much. We have recommended you to some friends of ours who are getting married in October so keep your eye out! Thank you once again and best wishes, Amanda and Jake

80th Birthday Celebration, Canapés, BBQ and Dessert, 14/03/15, Brighton, East Sussex
We had the pleasure of having Marcus and his team cater for our wedding in August 2014. We discovered Epicatering though their website and were instantly impressed by the timeliness and professionalism of their replies to our (many!) emails. Before we decided to go ahead with the booking, Marcus came and cooked in our home a tasting meal of freshly prepared canapes and cooked a selection of paellas for us and our two guests. The food was divine and we had every confidence in Epicatering to deliver the standard of catering we expected for our wedding. They were able to offer a hand picked menu of exactly what we wanted our guests to enjoy on the day. What most impressed us in the lead up to the event was the constant contact to advise and assist throughout months of wedding preparations on numerous issues including the hire of crockery, cutlery, glassware, tables, linen and equipment. When it came to our big day, all 80 of our guests arrived at our reception venue for a garden party at the same time and Marcus and his 5 staff were there to greet them with smiles, with a tray service of champagne and delicious canapes. We had specified that we wanted a buffet service to our guests but Epicatering had arranged one of the staff to offer a waitress service to the top table, which was very unexpected and really appreciated on the day. Epicatering provided a real 'theatre cooking' touch to the event which impressed all. Many guests were so delighted with the food and took the time to not only tell us, but personally thank Marcus for the masterfully prepared fresh paellas and delicious salads. I would not hesitate to recommend Epicatering and will almost certainly be using them again for any future events we will be organising. Alex & Laura

Birthday Celebration, Canapés, Lamb Spit Roast, BBQ and Dessert for 80 guests, 30/08/14, Slindon Common, West Sussex
I could not recommend Marcus and his team more. I arrived at my 21st party to find Marcus, and his waiting staff (Julie, Vania and Louisa) sorting everything out and ensuring that the marquee was ready for a great party. When guests arrived they were nothing but helpful, ensuring that all the guests had enough drinks and were so polite and friendly. The food itself was exceptional, with the choice of three different paellas suiting everyone's needs and left everyone commenting on the high standard of food, especially as it was for 85 people and was piping hot when received. Marcus and his staff were just amazing and made my party a night to remember as they just helped everything run so smoothly, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Epicatering to anyone else. Thank you again, Claudia

Corporate Open House, Cold Buffet for 75 guests, 04/09/14, Shoreham-by-Sea, East Sussex
We thoroughly enjoyed our daughters wedding reception because Marcus and his team of waiting staff were fantastic. We arrived at our venue to see everything beautifully set up and welcoming drinks were handed out to our guests with smiles and warmth. Nothing was too much trouble for our caterers and all our guests have commented on how excellent their service was. Marcus is a superb cook; the paella served with salad, dressing and fresh bread was delicious. We chose to have a selection of desserts and they were of a very high standard. There was no sense of dull or corporate catering; we felt our food was of a very high and bespoke standard. Our day was memorable and Marcus and his team were a huge factor in ensuring that everybody had a great time. We would not hesitate to use Epicatering again, they were a truly lovely and professional team. Bill & Lorraine

Dear Marcus and your team, Thank you so much for catering for our wedding on the 21st June 2014! We had an incredible day that was really made by your fantastic food, we had so many great comments. The canapes in particular were amazing and everyone loved the bacon baps for the evening buffet. Having been let down by our original caterers it was a delight to have found you as you could not have been more professional and on the ball in the lead up to and on the day of our wedding. We will highly recommend you to anyone seeking a caterer. Thank you for making our day totally stress free, Sarah and Steve Newland

Hi Marcus and Tracey, I simply must email to say thanks for providing an amazing service last night for mine and Paul's 50th Birthday celebration. From start to finish your attention to detail was first class. The food was wonderful and the service on the day was faultless. You provided exceptional staff who were constantly happy and enthusiastic despite the amount of guests and young children and of course the incredible heat. I must tell you that out of 68 guests I have received 48 comments via text email and facebook complimenting you all in every aspect of your service. It felt as though you were part of the celebration an extension of our friends and family and you were all as happy and enthusiastic as we were about the occasion! I will 100% recommend you and definitely use you again. Please pass on my number to any future clients who would prefer a verbal recommendation. Thank you so so much this is going to be a very successful business for you. Lots of love, and bloody well done, Shauna and Paul

Hi Marcus, Following the lovely wedding held here on Saturday 12th of July in a tipi in our garden, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for making it so special for us all. You have been a dream to deal with and on the day, you, Tracey and the rest of your team really pulled it off. The food was amazing and 108 people during the day were fed watered and happy. Another 50 or so arrived in the evening to party on and you continued to keep them all happy. It was a very hot day and you all worked so hard. Thank you so much once again. We look forward to our next party and will not hesitate to hire you again and will certainly recommend you to our friends. Kindest regards, Sarah, Alan, Tom and Holly.
Tom and Holly's Wedding, Canapés, Paella, Dessert and Evening Food for 108 guests,12/07/14 Warfield, Berkshire
EpiCatering was contracted to cater a gathering of family and friends in celebration of a 70th birthday party. From the very first contact with Marcus, it was evident that we were dealing with a highly professional catering company. The attention to detail was meticulous and every arrangement was confirmed by e-mail, as were subsequent changes. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and Marcus made a number of suggestions, with which we were happy to comply. On the day of the event Marcus, Tracey and their staff arrived in plenty of time to set up a fully independent kitchen under a very smart black catering canopy. The food, mainly a selection of hot and cold canapes, was served throughout the afternoon and a delicious chicken and chorizo gumbo with prawns followed in the evening. The food was beautifully presented and efficiently served. Compliments flowed from the guests throughout the event and for several days afterwards. EpiCatering took care of absolutely everything, making the day easy and relaxed for the hosts. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending them to anyone planning a function, Phil.
70th Birthday Celebration, Canapees and Gumbo for 60 guests, 19/04/14, Epsom, Surrey
Brilliant. Thanks so much for the excellent food and service on Friday. Everyone, and I mean everyone, said how much they enjoyed the paella and it all being veggie mean't there was no messing around. Had it for lunch the next day too, and I reckon it improved a little. So that makes it more than excellent. Both your good self and Tracey could not have been more amenable and efficient. You deserve to be successful, and hopefully, you may get some more bookings on the back of this. All best wishes and thanks again, Dan & Elaine

Corporate Event, Gumbo and Dessert for 80 guests, 30/04/14, Cambridge
Hi Marcus, I hope you are well. Thanks again for such a great job at our wedding. As promised, here is our testimonial. Marcus and all his staff were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We had been let down by our original caterers and Marcus really did save the day!! He was very helpful and he was always available if we had any questions. He was thoroughly professional and very relaxed so really helped take the stress out of an important part of our wedding day. On the day, Marcus and his staff were incredibly helpful and worked tirelessly throughout the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made sure our day ran amazingly smoothly. We cannot thank them enough for helping us out of a very stressful situation and then delivering such an amazing service on the day. Thank you so much. I would highly recommend Epicatering to anyone who wanted to hire caterers for any function, you will not be disappointed. James S.
Wedding Celebration, Canapés, Paella and Dessert for 180 guests, 18/05/13, Prestwood, Bucks.
I was recommended to the EpiCatering by a friend, and I approached Marcus for some ideas for my sons wedding. He responded with some very interesting proposals in respect of the menus and presentation. We were very impressed by the attention to detail and the realistic price quoted. As we came closer to the wedding date, Marcus was happy to meet me and the bridal couple at the venue to finalise the details of what would happen when and where. I also asked Marcus to deal with the wine and fizz selection and supply, which he did perfectly, oh and providing a bar service too. And so, as the happy couple emerged from the ceremony there were trays of bubbly served perfectly. The paella pans were being lit and the party commenced. Marcus produced a fish paella, a meat-only version, a veggie paella and a noodle stir-fry. Now, I pigged out on the fish, my brother did the same on the meat, his wife attacked the veggie and my mother (who spent much of her life in Singapore eating noodles) tried the noodle stir fry. Mum was uber-impressed, brother and sis-in-law were in raptures and I was both delighted and relieved. Good food, well cooked and well presented. No fuss, no drama. Marcus knows his craft and is the perfect aide if it is your first offsprings wedding! Given that my daughter or other sons agree. Nick H.

Fundraising Event, Paella for 65 guests, 28/09/13, London
I have five people from party so far asking for your company name for 50th birthday parties etc. One person who hated mushrooms just loved them in paella. And I am now arranging another party in September will be in touch!!! I also wanted to mention how impressed the gluten free guests were with the special chocolate fudge cake made especially for them. Choosing to use Epicatering to cater for our wedding was certainly the right choice. The paella and desserts were a resounding success. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed every morsel. So nice to watch the food being cooked. Made a great atmosphere couldn't recommend it more. So many thanks, we couldn't be more pleased. Tanya and Graham D.

Can't thank you all enough - Tracey and Karen as usual also a pleasure to work with - and it was so lovely having the same team so everyone just know where everything was and got on with it. We managed to freeze the paella - so I am keeping this for another big gathering I have later in the Summer and shall remember you all again gratefully then (2 events in one catered for)!! Have a great Summer and thanks again, Rowena C.

Hi Marcus, Nigel and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Tim, Mick and Lauren for a fantastic night on Saturday. It could not have gone better and Mick and Lauren really took all the hassle out of the evening, got on with everything in a truly professional manner and service with huge smiles. Without exception everyone we have spoken to since Saturday was really impressed with everything - the food, quality, service, everything - and for me as hostess the added bonus was that everything was served and cleared away with no worry at all. I have passed your details on to quite a few people!! Although this was a private function we are already thinking about how we can use you again for a sailing club function - we have a new clubhouse opening next year and it would be great if we could work together again. Once again many thanks and please pass on to Mick and Lauren as well. Mel and Nigel

Hi Marcus, Thank you for a most brilliantly managed food station on Friday night. Everyone was blown away by the food - not just the flavours but also the theatricality of the presentation of the paella. Thank you so much. You also prepared, served and cleared up most unobtrusively. We had another whole meal from the chicken and chorizo and could have fed an army on the paella! All in all a great success and I will pass on your details to anyone who asks. Merry Christmas! Rusty W.
