I was in London recently, looking for the best food in town... I found Alastair David, surely a new culinary talent. Expect more from him!
— JOE FAMULARO, THREE-TIME JAMES BEARD AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR

THE BEGINNING

Alastair began his catering love affair long before local food was a ‘thing’, most us were still eating Finders Crispy Pancakes and Angel Delight… (urgh!!) when Alastair was learning his trade at Chez Bruce (2 Michelin stared restaurant on the edge of London - www.chezbruce.co.uk/ ) Back then though even chefs like Alastair had little idea of the terms ‘nutritional value’ and ‘holistic plan grazing’, (look it up its a neat practice) Nowdays, at Alastair David, we ‘live’ and breath food, always looking for the best products and practices. We love visiting our suppliers down here in the South West, boy do we have some amazing examples - check our growing ‘our story’ page for more detail - we work with them to grow and supply the best tasting ingredients, then Alastair, with his huge amount of cheffing experience and talent adds some magic.

Weddings, events, parties and Pop-ups

 

Here at Alastair David catering, also well versed in the nuances of fine dining, we focus our attention on the ingredients. Yes, that seams like a cliche, but we really do live and breath ingredients. We try to be as local as possible, obviously the worlds best pepper isn’t from Devon, its from Kampot in Cambodia. We are 100% organic. The synthetics that are used in most ‘traditional’ product growing and agriculture companies are then absorbed into our bodies, and who wants that?? (Not us) so we use nature to grow our food. This also means that our food is tasty, nutritional and sustainable ... three cheers for that!!

Although we are passionate we are not exclusive. We work with our clients, thats you, to come up with a menu that works for your wedding, party or event; seasonal, tasty and of course on budget (Minimum spend £1,000).

Here is small selection of what we are up to:

  • Wedding for 120 people in a Devon farm house

  • Catering in a stately home in Kent for a party top executives

  • Wedding on a Devon beach for 60

  • Exclusive pop-ups and cooking classes for well practised home cooks.

 

Wedding catering, events catering, parties….. At Alastair David we have a wealth of experience in preparing, organising and delivering great food adhering to the highest standards. We stand proudly for three things; Food quality and taste; Event efficiency and organisation; Overall visual and design quality. These three pillars run through the structure of our business and deliver the best experience for you, our trusted and valued client. … our reviews and relationships prove this time and time again.

Alastair’s roles are numerous, but the one he loves the most is sourcing and preparing the best food from the vast network of amazing suppliers we have here in the South West.
