About Alex

“One of the top 15 women in food to watch in 2016” – About Time Magazine

I started selling sandwiches from the back of my bike in Saudi Arabia, I now own and run a London based catering company, Social Pantry, and have a fun little cafe on Lavender Hill in Battersea called Social Pantry Cafe.

When starting Social Pantry, I was determined to never venture too far from my roots; food should always be shared, menus should be accessible, unassuming and fun and all entertaining should be as elegant as possible.

This website is all about great food and great places to shop and eat.

“Congratulations on your success because you are really such a lovely lovely girl and its always a pleasure to see you” – Gaby Roslin, BBC Radio London

“I had a great time working with the team at Social Pantry. Not only were they clearly talented, but they were also really friendly and welcoming, which is so important. The food they executed for me was second to none, making my life very easy!” Dan Doherty, Duck & Waffle

“We’ve worked the team at Social Pantry for a number of years now. Whatever the event, big or small, there is nothing that is too much trouble or too fine a detail. The food and service is always on point. And Alex is such a pleasure to deal with, it always feels like a collaboration” Alice Levine & Laura Jackson, Jackson & Levine.
