“I have known Ruth Williams for more than 5 years now and during this time she has cooked and catered for lunches for 30 or more, and also done more intimate parties.
Not only is she a charming, well prepared and calm chef with her regular team of helpers but she produces delicious, decorative and seasonal food. She can work on a budget large or small and always is keen to discuss the menus beforehand
She is practical, and resourceful, offering many small touches appropriate to her employer's tastes in my case - garden lunches - this she devises attractive flower decorations. Ruth is a "find" and I warmly recommend her.”
Ashleigh West - Managing Director Octo Marine
“ We have used the services of Ruth for many years for both themed birthday cakes and for full event catering.
The cakes have always been amazing, both in their presentation and flavour.
Her menus are always adapted so well to the function that everyone pays huge compliments about the food.
Ruth´s unflustered nature and attention to detail make it a pleasure to work with her.
I would whole heartedly recommend her services for whatever type of function you are having."
Alexandra Cowell - Spirit Azur
“A massive thank you Ruth for providing excellent food time and time again on some many of our events. It is such a pleasure to be able to work with a professional who can pre-empt client needs, deliver exciting menus over an over for repeat clients as well consistently deliver delicious, generous and beautifully presented dishes time and time again (and not always under the easiest of conditions!). Your professionalism and unshakeable zen attitude has made these last 6 years working together an absolute pleasure and I quite frankly wouldn’t want to do it without you."
Jayne and George - Wedding September 2015
“We can't thank you enough for everything you and your team did to make our wedding day the best day we have ever had! I don't really know where to start to say how wonderful everything was, from the moment I arrived at our house as a married woman (!) and Al handed me a glass of bubbly, to bringing me a plate of food, to the glasses of water to keep me a bit sober! I have never experienced such attentive service before and could get very used to it!
To arriving at the Foulon and the absolutely beautiful tables you had set out. The delicious food, the smooth and perfect service. Your hard work made the day the most wonderful and amazing time we have ever had!
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou.
Once again Ruth, HUGE thanks to you and Al and your team. You are amazing!
"What amazing food.
We had a brilliant evening, everybody loved the food. We just wanted to say thank you for all your efforts because we loved it too and so did the children & the oldies who wolfed down some of the leftovers yesterday. You have an amazing talent and you’ll be hearing from us regularly now, believe me. Rod, Janet & family.
Sarah Kinga Smith - Film Festival 2016
"Ruth and her team provided not just fantastic food but also a kind and generous atmosphere by always being accommodating to our needs. The daily menus were consistent in the highest quality and always contained a rich variation that fit everyone, with no less effort in any dietary restriction. Beyond the outstanding cooking there was genuine heart put into every dish that spread well beyond the plate. Breakfast, lunch and dinner had us feeling spoiled every time and we knew from the first encounter that we were in very good hands. During our big event a large amount of guests were served a generous variation of hors d’oeuvres with superb thought put into the planning of the menu, as well as an impressive level of attention towards the guests. We couldn’t be happier with Ruth and her team and we hope to work with her soon again!"
" Just wanted to say a HUGE Thank You for what you did yesterday and for making my evening so perfect. I can not believe how professional and efficient you are. Everything was excellent, obviously the food was amazing and the layout and the way it was served was really nice. Everyone loved it and I am sure you will be contacted for many more parties both from me and some of the guests.
Also wanted to say thanks for helping out with the flowers and for tidying up the kitchen. For the first time ever I did not have to spend half a day clearing up after a party but actually been able to enjoy the day."
Nick & Jules - 50th Birthday Party
"GORGEOUS FOOD, BRILLIANT PLANNING, A DELIGHTFUL AND STRESS-FREE DAY.
Back in 2013, Jules and I decided to host her brother’s wedding in our garden at Mouans Sartoux. The date was set for July 6th and, as many of the guests were flying in from the US, the happy couple asked us to host an Independence Day party on July 4th to welcome them. Suddenly, we felt as if we’d bitten off more than we could chew.
That was until we met Ruth!
If you are planning some sort of event that requires food, we’d suggest you look no further than Ruth Williams. She’s brilliant.
What exactly did she do? Pretty much everything.
For the July 4th BBQ, she prepared all the food and delivered it ready to be cooked and served. (I did the honours behind the burners and have never received such compliments for my cooking. “The best hamburger I’ve ever tasted!” was a constant refrain. And the same could be said of the Caesar salad.)
In preparation for the wedding, Ruth came to our house in June and prepared three full menus for tasting. It was a feast and choosing which to serve was a challenge. But one that we rose to!
In the run up to the big day, she organised all the services we would need - tables, chairs, cutlery, plates, glassware, linen, staff. All of it. And once the celebration began, we enjoyed delicious canapés while she cooked the most exquisite, three course meal. She catered for a sixty guests with about as much fuss as a Michelin chef would make while boiling an egg. She’s incredibly calm and well organised. Jules and I never felt one flicker of pressure or tension throughout the evening as we knew that everything was under her control. The bride and groom will always be grateful to us for providing a sunny day and a garden for their wedding. For everything else the credit goes to Ruth.
