See what our previous customers have to say about us!

"We ordered Afternoon Tea for 4 of us for our wedding anniversary. The service from start to finish has been amazing. Jan was able to cater for a mix of vegetarians and meat eaters. the teas were delivered looking beautiful in their boxes and we were so excited to unpack them. The food was just delicious, from the variety of the sandwiches to the selection of cakes and the huge scones- perfection! In the words of my 5 year old, 'I can see why she is famous, the brownies are delicious!' Amazing value, absolutely delicious, we will be ordering again I'm sure."

“Jan Ghosh of Not Just Canapes has catered for several events at my house over the last 5 years from a business lunch attended by the local MP to celebrating significant birthdays.

I love working with Jan, her calm, professional manner from the outset helps with planning events, she is very thorough, efficient and has a great eye for detail. Having Jan on board really helps with the preparation of a large event. This effective planning is carried through to the events, when her staff are well briefed and provide an excellent service, which make it easy to relax and enjoy your own party, and we receive many ‘Compliments to the Chef’ after the event.

Jan is a great chef, her inspired menus made from good quality ingredients provide plenty to choose from and everything that comes out of her kitchen is delicious and beautifully presented."

Louise Cummins

"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jan and her team....The staff have all been very professional and friendly and the food whether it be a family BBQ, drinks party or 21st has always been faultless and delicious."

Penny Cabourne

"Jan and her team were excellent, providing a very professional but unobtrusive service. The food was delicious on all three occasions and was also beautifully presented. We received extremely positive feedback from our guests. I would not hesitate to recommend."

"Jan and her team did an amazing job for our housewarming party. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The staff were immaculate and circulated with confidence and an appropriate level of attentiveness. Jan is extremely well organised and managed the whole event in a calm, friendly and professional manner”

Audrey Atkinson

"Jan and her team catered for 95 people at my 21st birthday party, and I couldn't recommend them more highly. From start to finish they worked extremely efficiently and professionally, preparing 3 different meal choices to an excellent standard, serving drinks all evening and producing delicious desserts. All guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food, and passed on numerous compliments to Jan and her team. My party wouldn't have been the same without Not Just Canapés and I would encourage anybody to use their services."
