Woodfired Canteen is our catering company with a distinct difference. Woodfired Canteen cooks unique dinners over wood fire, serving to the centre of your table in inspiring locations.
We are so proud of the places and people we have worked with and believe the most important element is the story. When we lay our tables we know that the experience our guests have will stay with them forever. Its this fact that fuels us to lay more tables and be part of more stories.
Getin touch to hear about up coming events and have a look at our journey so far on Instagram. If this sparks something in you, reach out and lets see if we can do something truly memorable together.
Woodfired at West
We are super excited to have a regular pop up spot above West Bakery on Porthmeor Beach, St Ives. We will be cooking over our Drumbecues and serving single menus to the centre of shared tables.
These evenings are all about community, we will be lighting our grills with friends to serve one off menus in this amazing location. So get your hands on tickets for a 6pm or 8pm sitting to meet friends and share great food, or risk turning up to try and catch a space!
Menu's are not published in advance, but you can choose a standard or vegetarian option...upon arrival you will enjoy nibbles over the grills and be seated to St Ives Bakery bread, the main course will be served to the centre of shared tables and to finish a take away sweet pudding to get you on the road.
If the weather is dry we may be serving outside, so please do bring layers.
Born from our goals as a business, Woodfired Weddings is more than just another wedding caterer. We are lucky enough to have vast experience in this world! And pour all of it into the planning and production of your day.
We work with you to produce a truly memorable meal. Bespoke menus, your food memories, flavours that encourage your guests to get involved and food that gets shared at the table like a big family.
"When you love what we do- we love cooking it for you."
Have a look at our Instagram for more inspiration or this gallery we put together from our wedding stories. These pictures are not from photo shoots they are real live events, good people and good food.
Don't hesitate to drop into Canteen to have a chat or send Sammy a message.
Oh, and congratulations!
Ideas is our version of food consultancy.
Consultants usually turn up in shiny suits with brief cases and big budgets. We don't. Our businesses are based on purpose. We love to work with good people being creative.
We have experience in the industry, we are still operational and most importantly we want to be part of great ideas becoming reality.
Our consultancy has taken us all over the world and we are so proud of the work we have done. Our clients have included; Origin Coffee Roasters, The St Mawes Hotel, London Log Co and Sprout events management.
If you have an idea, do get in touch, we can grab a coffee and go from there.
Personal Chef Experience
At Canteen, we offer a personal chef experience. These experiences are real 'Once upon a time' moments and our most exclusive packages.
If you can imagine it we can make it happen.
One of the first businesses we set up, our experiences are based on our drive to create an event around a plate of food.
Our experiences have included a wood fired oven retreat in Greece, a perfect family Christmas weekend in the Cotswolds and show casing Europe's most exclusive properties for businesses and there clients.
Catch your own fish and cook it. Spend the day sourcing and foraging amazing ingredients from passionate people. Cook together as a family, learning new skills in the kitchen and sharing all this, together, at the table.
We have been lucky enough to have some very kind words written about us in some of the UK's leading press. Clicking on the links will take you to these pieces.
All these businesses have purpose in mind and know that you get out what you put in.
Come to our next 'Taco Tuesday' or get in touch to plan your own.
Our Team is the secret to what we do.
We believe strongly that the people you surround your self with, are your best signs of success.
Our Team is made up like minded individuals who are passionate about what they do. These people are the team delivering what we do on a daily basis, the people behind the produce we use, the places we visit and most importantly, the people we feed at our events, at Canteen everyone of them is important to us and these relationships make us who we are.
"Monday morning feeling, working to live and settling for mediocrity is not what the Canteen Team is about. Our mindset pushes us to create a working environment that is focused on the people rater then the product."
