Your Paella  catered for a wedding for 100 guests at The Keeper And The Dell in September 2017. We found this event location to be of a high standard. Everything was clean and tidy even down to the gravel. The staff rake the gravel to give it a very clean and crisp look.

We had no problem with finding the venue even though it’s off the beaten track. In fact that really adds to the events charm.

The facility’s are basic but that also adds to the overall charm. It has a really nice rustic feel that works perfectly if your looking to get married with a rustic country vibe.

As caterers we had no problem getting our equipment in to the area that was given to us and was offered refreshments which was very kind of the hosts. They also made sure we had everything we needed to perform our task and that made this event flow with no problems at all. We would be delighted to cater at this venue again!

The whole site allows itself for all kinds of party’s with an on site marquee all ready with tables and chairs, even a relaxing area under cover to the left of the marquee under another large wooden building.

On the edge of the main area there’s a row of barn type buildings that had a small bar area, seating area and also a coffee and tea making section.

We found the staff to be efficient and friendly.

We would recommend The Keeper And The Dell for any wedding or party!

Street food style catering for party’s, events and weddings.

Gary and Steve Paella chefs

Street food style catering has become very fashionable for weddings, garden party’s and events. Although some street style caterers are better than others!

So what should you be looking out for when trying to hire the catering services of a street style caterer?

The first question that needs to be answered is, “Is this a real business that has been registered with their local council and has that council given them a food health and hygiene rating?”

Its very easy to find out if that has been done, just contact the local council of the caterer and ask them or you could even ask the caterer as they will have a star rating with paperwork to show you. The star rating goes from 0 to 5. 5 is very good and 0 is bad! Here at Your Paella we hold a 5 star rating.

So what else should we need to know before we agree to hire a street style caterer?

You should find out if the street style catering trader has public liability insurance. This is very important for a few reasons. Firstly any business that doesn’t have public liability insurance I would find very suspect. Its good business practice to hold good insurance. Another reason to check the public liability insurance is for peace of mind should something go wrong, not only for you but for the business owner too.

Now you have established the street style caterer has a food hygiene rating and insurance you should ask to see  some of their past clients reviews.

Don’t just take the street style caterers word that their food is the best in the world, ask if they can provide you with past clients for a review. At Your Paella we ask our past clients to write an independent review on the www.yell.com website and always encourage potential clients to go to Yell.com and search “Your Paella” “Northants” If a street food style caterer has a good reputation they will be happy to share this with you, if not well I’m sure you can see that they may try and avoid the subject.

Now you should be better prepared to hire a street food style caterer for your special day. We at Your Paella hope you have a very successful event we are happy to give you any other information or even a free no obligation quote to serve delicious Paella’s for you and your guests.

Paella Chef.

Gary from Your Paella

Gary from Your Paella

Gary the Paella Chef is the proud owner and operator of his business called Your Paella

Formed in 2011 Gary and his team of Paella chef’s cover the whole of the UK providing a first class Paella catering service for any size party or corporate event. We asked Gary about some of the experience’s and useful information he can give when it comes to booking a Paella for an event.

The first question we asked was, “What is the main thing people get wrong when they book a catering service?” 

“In my experience the one thing that people seem to get wrong is the amount of food they order and not just from us. Many times we have turned up at a party and the host have booked us for say 100 guests but have also booked a Hog Roast to be served at the same time. Now that’s fine if you have 200 guests to feed but when there are 100 guests it leads to a lot of waste.

The best way to book both a Paella caterer and Hog Roast would be to have lets say the Paella for the main meal and then some time later that evening the Hog Roast. That way you won’t have the waste and your guests will be able to have food during the day and the evening too.”

Sky's Stuart Ramsay

We then asked, “what’s other types of problems have you come across that clients have had while running your business?”

“We do get a few people trying to book us last minute due to the fact that the catering company that they first booked has let them down.

Its always a good idea to get as much information about the catering company you intend to hire before you go ahead and book them.

To help our prospective clients to make a well informed decision when thinking of booking Your Paella we encourage them to read the reviews that past clients have left. We have an account with the yellow pages website www.yell.com and its very easy for perspective clients to read all about us. It really helps them to make a well informed decision.”

We then asked “What are the main type of events or party’s that you have catered for?”

“We get a lot of weddings, sometimes we provide the main meal with Tapas starters or canapés and desserts, that type of thing or we are booked for the evening meal. Paella is great in both cases.

We have catered for many birthday party’s,  christenings,  university balls, school sports days and of course corporate events from Audi to Amazon to name a couple. That’s one aspect of the job that I really enjoy, we are always in a different place meeting different people, it really is a fun job.”

“Do you cater at public events and shows?”

“When I first stated Your Paella we attended as many shows and public events as we could. It was the perfect way to promote our outside catering service and make some money at the same time. These days we are so busy with private events that we only attend 2 public events at the moment, the Crick Boat show and the Sandringham flower show. I even got to meet HRH Prince Charles this year at Sandringham, it was great.”

“What other important things should someone look for when booking any outside caterer?”

“That’s a really good question. There are a few important things that you need to know before you book any catering service. The first thing to ask would be does the catering company have public liability’s insurance? This is really important should anything go wrong. The second thing to find out is whether or not the catering company in question is registered with their local councils Food Hygiene Inspector  and what star rating do they currently hold. We have a 5 star food and hygiene rating. That’s the best you can get. Id also ask what if any reviews they have from past clients. Make sure that the reviews are genuine and open to anyone who would like to leave a review. I would also ask what time will they arrive to set up. We aim to arrive 4 hours before the serving time, this gives us a good time window if we encounter any problems with traffic on the way.”

Garden Party!

So you’re thinking of holding a garden party. Now that’s a great idea! But how can I be so sure that having a garden party is such a good idea? Well simply because I cook delicious Paella at garden parties all over the UK and can tell you with a lot of confidence that if you are going to host a garden party and you get it right its a lot of fun for you and your guests.

While talking to the hosts of many of the garden party’s we have catered for, the main reason they say they have booked us is because in the past when they have hosted a garden party at home and have been so busy cooking and giving out the food that they have had very little time in fact to enjoy the company of there friends and family.

Even when you have a small garden, it’s not a problem for Your Paella to come along and cook some delicious Paella. This is a fantastic cost affective way to give your guests something a bit special and very different!

At this garden party the hosts were happy for us to set up outside in their front garden, it was perfect as we only need a 3 metre x 3 metre area to cook and serve from.

As you can see from the image, serving 50 people is no problem for Your Paella. In fact it is a major part of our business.

We can cater for any size party or event. The largest event that we were employed to cater for was in central London for 1000 portions! Of course we needed more than just one large Paella pan for that.

For the bigger events or private party’s we take our famous Paella Cart. This really gives it the wow factor!

Whatever the size garden party or event, one thing will always remain the same. The great taste of Your Paella!

Having fun at a party.

And you know when you have done a good job because the hosts offer you a nice cold beer when you have finished! CHEERS EVERYONE!

The party was based on an outdoor picnic and the Paella chef’s found it to be a great success with all the guests, young and old alike. As a Paella chef I see many different types of party and I really do enjoy cooking Paella at all of them.
