Alice and Alex Foley - Chateau Queille - June 2017
It was an absolute pleasure to meet you, thank you so so much for making our wedding day so special. It really was the most magical & perfect day :)
You made us feel so relaxed with your lovely positive energy, the food was so perfect! Exactly what we had in mind, and it went perfectly with the setting and the weather! The Pyrenees cheesecake was delicious and latest for days after, and the profiteroles were the best we had ever tasted! Thank you for making sure the vegetarian & vegan option was equally as tasty as the meat option. We had so many compliments on the food & the canapes, a long with how lovely the staff were.
Thanks again so much and all the best for the rest of the summer! We wish we could do it all over again!
All of love,
Mr & Mrs Foley xxxxx
Rebecca and Simon - Wedding at Cave Des Anges - Cavanac - July 2017
Jade and Jack - Bastide Les Alliberts Minervois July 2017
We can't praise Lisa and Keith enough! Organising a wedding in the south of France from the UK is very daunting especially when neither of us can speak French, but from contacting Lisa initially, to the delivery of the catering on our wedding day, Lisa couldn't have been more efficient! Every email I sent was promptly replied to within hours of sending them!
A few months prior, Lisa visited the venue to ensure everything was in place, and to impress us more she even came again to visit us when we arrived in France to ensure everything was in place as planned! On the wedding day, we had chosen a buffet style meal which Lisa and Keith served on the tables to keep a more intimate feel on the day. The food was outstanding! We was still eating it 3 days later! Beyond value for money that’s for sure! For our wedding cake we ordered a real cheese cake, which Lisa beautifully prepared with fresh ingredients, again the cake managed to feed 30 people for 3 days with still tones left over!
I can’t praise the food and the service enough! If it wasn’t for Lisa, organising my wedding in France wouldn’t have been possible I don’t think. I’d highly recommend Dotty’s Kitchen without a doubt!

Simon and Rebecca - Caves Des Anges July 17
'We had our wedding in Carcassonne in July 17 and honestly couldnt have asked for a more lovely, professional accomodating and efficient catering team
Lisa was with us every step of the way and was such a reassuring, calming presence in the run up to our big day. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her expert guidance and knowledge of local vendors ensured that we had the perfect menu for our 85 guests! Not to mention that the food was absolutely delicious!
We cant recommend Lisa and her team at Dotty Kitchen enough. Thank you so much for everything!

Ruth and James - Cave Des Anges August 2017
Lisa was an angel from the beginning! She was there every step of the way with every wish and change of mind. The food that we had for the week was absolutely delicious It was a godsend to have the dinner arrive for 18 people. The wedding day was amazing with tables filled with everything we adore and the wedding cakes were divine! I couldn't recommend this kind, talented, generous soul enough. A million thank yous Lisa!! xx
Natalie and Doug - Domaine de Barthe - August 2017
The food served at our wedding was so delicious and perfect!
There was no shortage of food and everyone was very complementary.
It was great meeting Lisa before the big day to run through details, and on the day she was so professional it made the whole event run really smoothly!
Thank you Lisa! X
Rianne and Jakrit - Chateau Queille - September 2017
'We would like to thank Lisa and Dottie Kitchen so much for the amazing job she has done on our weddding day at Chatea de Queille!
From the start of our conversations about our ideas of food and ways of presentation Lisa has been an absolute star and such a big help to make sure our wedding day and food was exactly how we pictured it and listened very well to our wishes/ She still made it happen and again on the day when our outside diner got interrupted with a shower of rain; she made sure there was a direct solution and the diner wasnt in any way interrupted. And on that note; as being the bride, Lisa made sure I didnt have to worry about anything and made sure eveything was well arranged so I had a complete care free day and able to enjoy every minute of my wedding day and I cant thank her enough for that. You cant have a better caerer; who you can trust completely and she easily took care of our 90 guests. And as an extra bonus she helped us out with so many other little things as well or providing contacts in th area, as we dont speak much French and due to her quick responses and information we were able to organise our dream wedding from the UK. Thank you Lisa and everyone who helped you that day!

Below from some of the 2016 events............
"Lisa single handed arranged a retirement party for over 90 guests who were fulsome in their praise for the food; music and overall ambience created: Many commented it was one of and in some instances the best party they had attended. I would strongly recommend Lisa if you were thinking of someone to arrange a function or if you wanted someone to arrange the catering aspects of a function."
David McGowen - Fenouillet du Razes
I just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you so much for the brilliant food and service you and Keith provided the other weekend.
We really appreciated all the little touches such as fig confit with the food and for the discreet and considerate manner in which you provided and collected everything.
We had such a brilliant afternoon and am really grateful for the excellent service you provided:

"Dotty Kitchen catered for my husband's 60th birthday party on 19th June 2016. The process of booking and ordering was simple and reassuring. After contacting Lisa and Keith by email, we met up for an hour at our house in Montréal, where they explained about a wide variety of menu options and also confirmed the routine for the day of the party. They also offered to source disposable crockery and glasses within the price of €12 per person.
Three days before the party, we confirmed our numbers. Although we had estimated 50 places this had dropped to 35 because of a clash of dates. There was no issue with this as throughout the process Lisa and Keith were professional, flexible and friendly.
On the day, we just had to set out the tables and organise drinks. Despite an incredibly busy few days, Lisa and Keith arrived a little before time, at 3.30 for a5pm start. There was a huge amount of food all temptingly displayed on French style crockery with all the components of the agreed menu. There was an ample supply of plastic plates, glasses and napkins. The party went off brilliantly. There were many compliments about the quality of the food and the amount too. At the end of the evening we simply collected up the disposable items and left the Dotty Kitchen crockery for them to collect, unwashed, the next day. Simple and so effective!
We felt the experience was very good value for money and left us free to enjoy a very special birthday. The service Dotty Kitchen provided was ideal for our needs and we would recommend them unreservedly. We would certainly use them again.
Thank you, Lisa and Keith for helping to make Ian's big birthday an occasion to remember."
Mandy and Ian Watson

It was all delivered on time and so beautifully fresh . I would not hesitate to engage your services again and several people were saying that they would contact you for future events "
JACKIE SCOTT - MIREPOIX
"I must say how impressed I was with the finger buffet you prepared for me at very short notice for the 'wake' following my husbands funeral.
Also your very helpful,kind, friendly and efficient response to my request helped to take some of the pressure off a very difficult time for me.
Everyone commented how lovely the food was and they certainly tucked in. I am sure you will have some future customers from this occasion.
Thank you again for making a very emotional day a little more easier to bear.
I will have no hesitation in recommending you and your company for any catering events"
