The Garden Chef is all about the freshest ingredients, locally sourced used to create delicious food, it's that simple! We produce as much as we can, we keep our own chickens, quails and bees and will be adding to our collection with saddleback pigs for hog roasts and goats for cheese and milk in the spring.
Between them Becky and Jeremy share a passion for home produced, beautiful, delicious food. They seek out amazing local suppliers and work their socks off to make whatever they do truly fabulous. Their home venue of Patricks Barn provides a stunningly different wedding, party and supper venue. Through the summer months they are to be found creating wonderful feasts for weddings and parties.
Whether it is a Hog Roast, Sit Down Meal, High Tea or Buffet, The Garden Chef team with ensure it is made with the finest ingredients, beautifully presented and expertly served.
Who We Are
Becky Cook has worked in the food and catering industry for last 24 years and loves creating fabulous menus for each client to ensure they fit with their tastes and budget. Individuality is really important to Becky, particularly with regards to weddings. She feels strongly that they should reflect the likes and loves of the couple and be as unique as they are. Every function is a collaboration to create a one off event.
Becky and Jeremy married in 2013 and Jeremy brings a wealth of knowledge to the business from a career in the hotel and wine industries which saw him work all over the world. A shared love of good food and good drink brought them together and now drives the business!
'Food is our passion, growing it, reading about it, preparing it, serving and eating it, so we are very lucky our greatest love is also our job!
The Garden Chef began 10 years ago in a converted log cabin in the garden - hence the name! After many years working with food in catering companies and restaurants and developing a huge love of feeding people wonderful food, Becky Cook wanted to work from home around her young children. The business quickly grew and 6 years ago moved to bigger, better kitchens attached to the gorgeous Patricks Barn which has become a truly quirky rustic wedding and function venue.
