Private Chef & Caterer

Sandra Starling Catering provides a range of dining  services. I will provide you with a meal to remember from a traditional dinner party to a customised  tasting menu. I am based near St. Ives, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, and am happy to travel up to 20 miles radius of St. Ives.

 I have also just launched my online Preserves Shop where you can buy chutneys, jams and marmalades.

The situation is  now much more stable, so now taking bookings as normal.

 Obviously these bookings will be on the basis that we can go ahead when the time comes.

Myself and my partner Frank ( Wild in the Pantry) are currently working together on certain functions to create that special event for you.

Our priority is to ensure that we keep both you and ourselves safe during these unusual times, and we are very covid conscious.  We will always make sure we are  adhering to the lastest guidance and  regulations.

 Please keep safe.




Service Provided

At the moment I am only offering catering services for small events.

Rest assured I take personal responsibility for every one of my events. I will personally discuss all your requirements with you, prepare and cook the food, and be present to oversee the smooth running of every function.

I'm here to help, so let me do the hard work while you enjoy your special day.

About Me

In 1988 I opened and successfully ran a bistro in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire for 18 years, providing good home cooking with excellent service to my customers. When I sold the bistro my love of cooking remained and I started my own outside catering business.

I pride myself on providing good value for money without compromising on quality or freshness. I source ingredients locally where possible. Great customer care is at the top of my list, and I enjoy nothing better than seeing people enjoying my home-cooked food.

I have all relevant certificates including current hygiene certificate, first aid and public liability insurance.

My Prices

Each menu has an indication of price, but I will always provide you with a full quote prior to your event once I have personally discussed and understood your full requirements.

Please note I do not charge VAT
