‘The Best People Like To Eat’ Julia Childs

W E L C O M E !

My website is a site that encompasses everything I love; travel, eating out and brilliant people I meet and admire in food, and business.

I started selling sandwiches aged 15 in Riyadh. Fast a few years and I own Social Pantry, a London based events and contract catering company with 4 sites in London. My sites include Social Pantry Cafe in Battersea, Crane’s Kitchen in Peckham and Soane’s Kitchen in Ealing.

What makes my company different is that since 2015 I have employed ex-offenders (and bloody love doing so!) Get in touch for more information on employing ex-offenders or the great charities I work.

Food. Travel. Business.

I hope you enjoy it.
