Rebecca Green from Rebecca Green Bespoke Event Catering & Plush Pantry Ltd

Success means different things to different people to me it means putting ‘great food on the table’. We set about making beautiful food, created by my superb kitchen team.  My job was and still is, to inspire the customers and my team and bring everything together to make a wonderful event.

I love to meet new people, and adore the open road, so I am at my happiest driving to a new area and exploring the nooks and cranies of some truly breath-taking places, meeting the clients and visualizing us there cooking something wonderful. The more difficult the space the more I am engaged, it is all about the challenge.  Back in my college days, one of my lecturers was an ex-Army  chef, and his stories of cooking in -25 in Norway captivated me…. I realised that anything is possible.

Family life can be challenging, and sure sacrifices are made, but who can put a price on installing a great work ethic and confidence that can only come from a ‘can do environment’.  Our daughter is happily applying for part time jobs and holding zoom meetings, studying, writing DND games, learning to drive and generally thriving, even in a lockdown.

Lockdown has been a tremendous roller coaster of emotions, to watch our bookings move to another year, and then watch them move again is heart breaking, but something good always comes out of something bad…. And so, our new sister company was born.  Plush Pantry is our new online shop and is proving extremely popular with new customers and old. It has been such a challenge but with the help of ‘Handheld Marketing, we achieve our goals.

And so, Rebecca Green Catering and Plush pantry are now gearing up to a super busy summer, bursting with bookings and orders and ready for the next challenge.
