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. We are caterers taking you on a culinary adventure with our vibrant plates, bold flavours and theatrical presentation set to ensure the most memorable of event experiences.

Informal dining

Our beautifully presented 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.
