Testimonials

If you need set / site catering, I could not recommend Forkandles more highly. Making the initial arrangements was effortless, and over the course of a three day rehearsal period Tara and her team prepared consistently delicious meals for a very hungry touring party that topped the scales at 116 musicians, crew and a BBC documentary team.

I worked with Tara Merritt, when Forkandles provided the catering on a Channel 4 production, over 3 days in Liverpool. We had a very large crew and cast of around 600 and Tara and her team managed to provide wonderful food whilst always keeping a sense of humor.

Everyone enjoyed the food, which was exactly what was required, wholesome, hearty and very delicious. I know it was a tough one, but you were all charming and great to work with. I would certainly like to use Forkandles again!
Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year for us all.
Kind regards,
