Food & Drink
“CDC started life as a caterer and we are very proud of our food. We take restaurant-quality dishes and bring them to the event table, be that a marquee in the middle of a field or the Grand Hall of a Grade II listed building. Our food is freshly prepared, sustainably sourced and presented with style.”
Ben, Head Chef, CDC Events
From conferences to gala dinners to BBQs, our ethos is the same – to create inspiring menus from fresh, local ingredients that wow guests. All of our bookings include a complimentary tasting to perfect the menu for each event.
Our canapés are handmade by our experienced chefs on the day of an event and are a perfect option for a building opening or reception. Our mouth-watering pulled meats are a big hit with summer party guests and our bowl food is a fun and social way to serve guests something more substantial for a standing event.
We work with our clients to design the perfect menu, from something beautifully simple like a traditional 3 course meal, to something more diverse like a five course gala menu with amuse-bouche and palette cleansers.
