ALISON MARTINDALE

Following my graduation in Hospitality Management in 2001 , I have gained experience from all aspects of event, catering & hotel management for both the corporate client and the private guest.

I understand what is needed to make any event a success; attention to detail, clear organisation, regular communication right up to the event along with a genuine passion of fresh local produce and professional yet friendly service. .. best to throw a good sense of humour in there too!

It has always been my ambition to have my own event & catering company and we have now had the opportunity to develop The Willows Catering Co with a dedicated commercial kitchen in the grounds of our home in Thornton le Dale, near Pickering.

I guarantee that all events and catering products will be supervised by me to ensure a consistent high standard; every enquiry and event will be met with professionalism.

As well as my degree in Hospitality Management, I hold certificates in Customer Service, Food Hygiene, Health & Safety and Food Allergens. I have a disclosure check, a Personal Licence for retail sale of alcohol & The Willows Catering Co has its own Public Liability Insurance.

With a sister who has intolerance to dairy and my best friend who is coeliac, I understand the importance of managing ingredients and food labelling. I will provide a complete ingredients listing for all of my food products. With prior knowledge I will endeavour to offer alternatives to suit any dietary requirement.

JUST ME

If you’re having a party at home, are happy to cater for your own event but don’t want to spend all evening in the kitchen. I can come and assist, serve, wash-up and tidy-up to take the extra pressure away from you, allowing you to enjoy your own party.
