Cocotte

Bespoke catering

we love their enthusiasm for hard work, their love of food and drink, their great capacity for looking after people and their very particular understanding of how it is to want to host something special and not be able to do it all by yourself - they have great style, they have all the right suggestions at the right moment and they care deeply that the outcome is second to none: they are truly EXCELLENT and we 100 % recommend them."

About
owners portrait

Anna Caldicott and Fiona Cochrane created Cocotte from a shared love of food, wine, events and friendly hospitality.

With a history of professional cooking, event management, and client liaison we have combined our skills to create a company that can meet any event’s requirements with a level of service that is of the highest standard.

We met in a professional kitchen and immediately clicked. Our mix of skills and complementary talents allow us to create streamlined professional events and expertly hand crafted food, full of flavour and passion.

We also have an incredible front of house team who we have been working with for many years. They too are expert, professional and just lovely to have around!

Our greatest pleasure is working with you from beginning to end, on every detail, to ensure your event is executed exactly as you imagined.

We look forward to cooking for you!

Anna and Fi

Testimonials

you were all just amazing - so professional, thoughtful - & great at what you do.

Stealth preparation, the tables that were in the middle of everything thoughtfully decorated, fantastic food, lovely, fabulous staff, keeping the glasses topped up so that there was just the right amount of fizz & wine, coming out to the bus to feed guests as they boarded (inspired!). Short & sweet but really - you were all just amazing - so professional, thoughtful - & great at what you do. Everyone was very complimentary about every aspect of Cocotte's service - & rightly so.
Debra Shepherd and Ed Rogerson

The only problem is that once you have found them, you will never cook for your guests again!

I found Cocotte after years of searching for a caterer that could make my dinners and parties feel fun, relaxed and non stuffy, whilst at the same time produce first class food, decoration and cocktails. Fiona and her team are excellent, discreet, unflappable, and able to work within any parameter, large or small. The only problem is that once you have found them, you will never cook for your guests again!
Sacha Bonsor

Cocotte’s fantastic team and their infectious energy made the wedding run seamlessly!

Cocotte were an absolute joy to work with throughout the run-up to our wedding and they made the day itself run perfectly. They gave us some valuable excellent ideas on much more than just the food, but also on the many small details and logistics that need to be thought out on a wedding day. Cocotte’s fantastic team and their infectious energy made the wedding run seamlessly, they thought of absolutely everything which meant we could relax and enjoy ourselves. We were so impressed with how professional they were, and how they went the extra mile to make sure we were well looked after. Best of all, their food was insanely delicious with the highest quality ingredients and looked so beautiful on the tables. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding food they’d ever had! I’d definitely recommend Cocotte to anyone that wants a stress-free and guaranteed delicious caterer. Our big day wouldn’t have been the same without them!
Fuschia Watson

It really was a memorable and happy evening!

Thank you both so very much for your wonderful cooking and beautiful presentation of the canapés, bowl food and desserts. So many of our friends commented how very delicious it was and plenty to eat. It was lovely to introduce you to our friends in Wimbledon and Surrey. Also huge thanks to your front of house team, they were all so friendly and welcomed and looked after us and our guests so well. It really was a memorable and happy evening, which we all really enjoyed. Wishing you great future success and huge thanks again.
Carolyn Laville

The best food at any art fair!

Cocotte Catering ran a delightful pop up cafe at the fair for us in October 2018 serving delicious breakfasts, cakes, muffelletta and salads. We received a great response from our visitors and exhibitors alike, it was heard said that we had the best food at any art fair! We have nothing but praise for the friendly and wonderful team who went the extra mile to create exactly what we were looking for.
Adam Thomas – Sunday Art Fair

We had the most amazing night!

We had the most amazing night on Saturday and so much of this was down to the wonderful food and the amazing team that was provided by Fiona and Anna at Cocotte. They really were the best canapés I have ever had. I wish I had a plate of them in front of me now!

Delicious canapés which were as good to look at as they were to eat!

For a reception we hosted recently, Fiona and her team produced a selection of delicious canapés which were as good to look at as they were to eat! Mary and I look forward to working with Cocotte again.
