I have always loved to cook and as a child could often be found surrounded by eggs, flour and butter attempting to create something delicious. I trained as a cordon bleu cook as soon as I could and have cooked happily ever since – the last 3 years for Sleeps12.
I work directly with all my clients to discuss menus and specific wishes and am very happy to cater for all dietary requirements. I use the best local ingredients I can find and am happy to cater for small and large groups.
My aim is to take the stress and hassle away from you so that you can sit back and enjoy your special meal knowing that all you have to do is turn up while my friendly waitresses and I do all the hard work including the washing up and tidying away!
Gayla at Select Catering offers mouthwateringly delicious food for all occasions using only the freshest and finest ingredients. Enjoy private intimate dining with your closest friends and family to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or reunion while being served restaurant-quality food in the comfort of your stunning holiday home. Your event will be totally stress-free, the table is laid for you and the dining room and kitchen is cleared afterwards so that you can enjoy socialising with your guests. Please take a look at the catered menu.
Gayla also offers a delivered menu if you don't fancy spending your entire holiday planning, shopping, cooking and washing up! Order from the delivered menu and food that tickles your tastebuds will be delivered direct to the fridge/freezer at your holiday home in disposable containers so all you have to do is pop them in the oven and relax!
