“I had a small party on Saturday. We agreed a budget and Marie-Clare created a lovely menu, delivered on Saturday afternoon. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. One guest said that the goat’s cheese and red onion quiche was the best quiche he had ever tasted.”
“The breakfast and lunch for our training event was amazing – we had great feedback from our clients and there were leftovers which the office polished off very quickly. Thank you so much – I can guarantee that we will be coming back to you in the future.”
Natasha, Stern Accountants, Ealing
Marie-Claire catered for drinks and supper for over 100 guests an was organised and calm. She managed to make the whole operation feel stress-free. Both she and her team were complimented by lots of my guests. Her menu was simple and delicious. I would highly recommend.

“Thanks to Marie-Clare and her team, who catered for our party of 30 with ease; delicious food, great planning and really lovely staff to help out on the night. Thanks so much Marie-Clare!”
Marie-Clare cooked at a weekend retreat for our charity and provided a great menu of nourishing foods for us all. She was able to work within our budget and meet the needs of our event, and she was a very friendly person to have around. Many thanks for all you did!

“Had a delicious meal last night thanks to Marie-Clare Alphonso at Marie-Clare Cooks: Morrocan chicken tagine. Highly recommended if short on time but in need of healthy food. Looking forward to our ginger chicken noodles next week.”

“I got Marie-Clare Cooks to cater my baby’s Christening off a Facebook group recommendation. The food was excellent and well presented, delivered and set up at the venue while we were at church. The real bonus was how very professional she was, made that side of the party completely effortless for me! PS ‘Buying local’ felt good too!”
Marie-Clare was amazing. Not only was the food absolutely delicious and beautifully presented, but at every stage she was helpful, offering sage advice and a sense of calm that was invaluable. Her rate was extremely reasonable too. If only I could give her more stars!!

“Marie-Clare Cooks helped to cater a very last minute party I decided to hold in July. I contacted Marie-Clare on the Monday and by Saturday she had prepared and delivered food for 40 people. I was so impressed with the level of service and responsiveness. I changed the menu and delivery arrangements right up to the day of the party and Marie-Clare took it all in her stride. Her portions of food were very generous. I didn’t think it was possible for anyone to provide what I was looking for at such short notice. It was also a bonus that the company is local. Thank you so much for making my party a big success!” Olive, Ealing July 2017

“Try Marie-Clare Cooks’ food – today’s menu was so moreish! Crispy beef noodles with fresh crunchy beans – I ordered 3 portions so I could freeze some for later on. Definitely recommend and cheaper than getting a takeaway.”

“I asked Marie-Clare to cater for my 50th Birthday party and her service was very efficient and easy with everything delivered on time and with a smile. The food was well cooked and delicious and all of my guests commented on it. I will definitely use Marie-Clare Cooks again.” Andrew, Ealing

“Marie-Clare is FAB. She catered my 40th and was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Not just in the food (which is lovely) but also in her all round approach. She was so helpful when all my guests arrived at once helping with coats / gifts and her team were serving drinks. I have already booked her for my next party!” Ellie – Ealing

“Last year a very close friend of ours in Ealing became ill. We live in Boston but wanted to provide her, her husband and three young children with some prepared meals during her treatment. Marie-Clare was so lovely and seamlessly facilitated the delivery of many meals enjoyed by the family – even visitors from Canada sent me rave reviews. Thank you so much for consistently delivering such delicious meals with such kindness.”
Diana, Boston, USA
“Dear Marie-Clare. Thank you so much for a WONDERFUL catering event yesterday! I’ve had loads of compliments about the food and you and your two lovely assistants made it all so easy for me to actually enjoy the event! You were all brilliant at the clearing up as well and there is still some of the wonderful hoisin duck to look forward to for lunch today! I won’t hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.” Stephanie, Father’s 90th Birthday Party, Ealing W5 – Canapes & buffet for 30

Nothing was too much trouble for you and your team, the food was delicious, Mum was totally surprised and a great afternoon was had! Thank you xx”

‘We were very pleased with Marie- Clare Cooks. From her first phone call to the team driving away after the party the service was excellent. The food was lovely and there was a lot of choice; she and her staff were efficient and polite as well as very professional throughout. I would certainly recommend her. We had 64 people to a 70th birthday party in a marquee in our garden’ Ros & Paul

“I’d like to recommend our fab local lady Marie-Clare Alphonso and her business Marie-Clare Cooks. We had a very yummy lamb tagine which had real depth of flavour. It must have been good quality meat as I usually don’t really like lamb. The cakes are also really nice. Carry on the good work MC!”
Hannah B, home delivery client, Ealing
“Marie-Clare catered for 70 guests at our 50th birthday party. She delivered pre-prepared sandwiches, finger food and cake for afternoon tea. There was more than enough for everyone, a great variety of fresh food, which our guests really enjoyed. Later she returned with her team to serve 4 different hot dishes as bowl food for supper, followed by dessert. Several guests commented on how delicious the food was and happily tucked into second helpings. Children were well looked after too. Service was professional and friendly throughout. As the party hostess I was very busy, and it was a great relief not to have to worry about the catering, or get involved. It all just happened and dishes were cleared away unobtrusively. I am happy to recommend Marie-Clare. She was easy to work with and totally reliable.” Dinah, Ealing September 2017
September 50th Birthday Party
Yesterday’s catering was absolutely right, and thank you very much for all your help in making a successful celebration of Lynda’s life. I would just like to say a huge thank you to Marie Clare and her team for providing the catering at a funeral I had to organise last week. Marie Clare responded rapidly to my original enquiry – was very helpful in the planning for an event when it is imporssible to predict numbers and then arrived with here quietly efficient staff and produced delicious food. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thanks again for helping to make a very difficult day go smoothly.
