Private dining is perfect for special occasions. To invite a chef into your kitchen to prepare a meal for you and your friends or family is a very special experience, taking all the stress out of entertaining and adding a dash of luxury. We love to work with clients on a bespoke basis to create their perfect menu, inspired by seasonality, the best locally sourced produced from land and sea and your own personal favourites. So whether you want to create a laid-back family-style lunch, a gorgeous three-course meal or an elegant tasting menu, we can work with you to set just the right tone for your event. Whether it’s East Neuk lobster, Highland venison, Fife Dexter beef, foraged herbs or vegetables grown on our doorstep in the Howe of Fife we work with the very best local producers to deliver outstanding flavor (and we always begin with our own handmade bread and hand-cultured butter….)
When you contact us we will always suggest a discussion (either on the phone or in person) to talk through exactly what you are looking for. We will then create suggested menu options tailored to your event and work with you to finalise your menu.
When you dine with us there’s no need to worry about the details; we do that for you. We can provide contemporary crockery, cutlery, tableware, linen napkins, glasses and pretty much anything else you can think of!
There’s nothing we like better than creating a gorgeous table in a simple, rustic style. Using seasonal foliage, wildflowers, seashells, stones and candles we can set the scene for you.
We can provide a professional front-of-house team to provide seamless service. In their grey shirts and aprons our lovely team can be there from the canapés and champagne right through to the coffee and handmade chocolates. And when it’s all over we are there to clear everything away, leaving your kitchen spotless. It’s our attention to detail that sets us apart.
What an incredible dinner! Thank you so much to Catherine for providing such excellent food and service for our 15-person event. The whole evening was flawless, and the food received rave reviews from all of the guests. We had hot smoked salmon and crispy quails egg, pheasant, and then cheesecake to finish. All delicious!

We enjoyed delicious food cooked and prepped by the delightful company owner and served by herself and her lovely team. They made the lunch at home for 70 go like clockwork and contributed hugely to everyone's wellbeing on a very happy day. Thank you Harper and Lime. You are simply the best!

Can’t recommend Catherine highly enough. We had such a lovely evening - the food was just incredible - so deliciously tasty and the chocolate bomb just wow! And a beautiful personalised table setting as well. Thanks so much.

The food was exceptional from the nibbles right through to the very indulgent dessert. We could not decide which of the starters was the favourite. Each one got a vote and they were all wonderful. The lamb was cooked to perfection. As for the chocolate? Seriously yummy!....The whole package was second to none.
