We recently sat down with Darling Magazine to talk about our re-brand from Rocket Catering to Lavender Catering – as well what makes us stand out from the crowd! Here is a snippet of the interview below, with a link to the full interview enclosed.
Mel Williams talks to Darling’s Holly Candlish about the exciting relaunch of her company, Lavender Catering (formerly Rocket Catering) and what sets her food apart from all the competition. She even gives readers top tips for entertaining during the festive season
I can remember some ten years ago, every event I went to was catered by the same company (it was called Rhubarb), and with their innovative food and styling, everybody, but everybody, was using them. So, it’s no surprise that creative and exciting talent, Mel Williams, used to event chef for them and this year, there’s a similar buzz: every party, dinner and event I attended this Summer, was catered by Mel. Beyond the local party scene, Lavender Catering has won a host of blue-chip catering contracts, including the Royal Berkshire Polo Club, and Mel has even been invited to mentor young students at Surrey University.
Speaking to me in her contemporary prep kitchen, it quickly becomes clear why she’s generating so much interest: Mel is a force of energy, ideas, passion, and creativity.
