Sarah has most recently worked at a senior level in Human Resources including for the Virgin Group and Wyevale Garden Centres. However her early career was in the catering industry, when she was involved in organising and delivering prestigious large-scale banquets at Buckingham Palace, London’s Guildhall and Livery Halls, as well as managing smaller, more intimate, events in people’s private homes.

Our team come from a variety of backgrounds and bring with them a broad array of experiences. What we all have in common though is our love of food and our desire to share that with other people.
