Food Hygiene Rating

We are proud to have a food hygiene rating of 5.

Have you ever wondered why music videos and film productions incorporate food and catering services?

If you’re a filmmaker looking to create an authentic and memorable scene, then hiring a food van is a must.

One recent example is the music video for “Roadside” by AJ Tracey, which featured a food van as a key element.

Mahalia – Roadside (Feat. AJ Tracey)

Catering companies are often hired for productions to provide food and drinks for the cast and crew. However, they can also be used as a creative element to enhance the overall experience.

In the case of “Roadside,” the food van added a unique touch to the music video and helped to create a specific atmosphere.

If you’re planning a production or event and want to incorporate catering services, it’s important to think beyond just the food. We can provide a range of services, from menu planning to creating a memorable experience. Use our catering booking form below to enhance your own production.

The safety and satisfaction of your cast and crew members is our priority

At Artisan Cuisine, your safety and satisfaction come first. We understand the importance of catering to dietary requirements and allergens. Our staff are trained in allergens and can provide breakdowns of menus upon request. Our office team also collects dietary requests in advance so our teams can plan menus accordingly.

We are experienced in providing options for gluten-free, low-carb, high-protein, vegetarian, and vegan diets. However, we want to make it clear that while our kitchens are cleaned and sanitised daily, we cannot guarantee that they are entirely free from allergen traces. If you have any serious allergens that could pose a risk to your health, please let our office team know.

Our Sustainability and Environmental Policy

At Artisan Cuisine, we have a sustainability and environmental policy that we’re happy to share with you. We’re committed to being as eco-friendly as possible, from sourcing our food to disposing of waste.

We’ve got plenty of experience working on “Plastic free” and “Green” productions, and we’re always happy to adapt our service to suit your needs.

If you’re interested in our sustainability policy, please get in touch!

One of our recent clients was really impressed with our efforts to reduce waste and improve sustainability. We switched to crockery and cutlery instead of single-use plastics, reintroduced condiments in bottles, and served sandwiches on trays instead of individually wrapping them. When we did need disposables, we made sure to use eco-friendly, biodegradable options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Booking a caterer for your event for the first time can be a bit daunting. Browse our FAQs below or contact us with any other queries. We’ll be happy to help.​

What is the estimated cooking time for a Hog Roast?

A Hog Roast takes approximately 6-7 hours to cook perfectly depending on the size of the pig and the number of diners we are catering for.

How far do you travel?

Normally within a 25-mile radius of our base, but we are really flexible and do please ask – we are here to provide you with a very professional and helpful service.

Do you have any provisions for wet weather?

YES, we will bring our own 3×3 metre gazebo to cover ourselves against any unwanted weather.

How long do you serve for?

As long is as necessary, we only leave when you have finished with us.

This very much depends on the type of function, but rest assured we will only leave when everyone has been fed and is totally satisfied.

What about leftovers?

Any un-served meat can be carved off and left for you if you so wish

Do you provide a site visit prior to my function?

Where at all possible yes! This enables us to meet you personally and ensures that on the day you enjoy your party or function. Just leave the rest to us!

Are references available?

Absolutely – Don’t be afraid to ask! Copies of thank you letters and clients you can contact are readily available.

Do you need access to electrical power?

YES. Can you please provide us with an electrical power point. Just the basic household one is fine. We will bring an extension lead so distance is not a problem.

For larger public events we supply our own generator

What is the width of your roasting machine, just to make sure we have good access?

Our machine is designed to fit through a standard doorway or garden gate.

Do you provide staff?

We always supply a fully qualified Chef (dressed in full whites) and an assistant to serve.

The answer is as many as you would like. Typically we cater for between 50 and 300 guests dependent on whether it is a small garden party or a larger corporate event

Will there be enough meat to go around?

Always. We always bring a larger hog than is needed and we also bring extra buns too, so if some of your guests want to come back for seconds – no problem.

What about Health & Safety issues and Public Liability Insurance?

All our staff have the appropriate Food Hygiene Certificates and our company has the necessary product and public liability insurance in place. (Copies are available upon request)

How does payment work?

We require a 50% deposit to confirm the booking.

We will contact you at least 14 days prior to your function to discuss final numbers and precise timings and at this point the final payment then becomes due
