Client Testimonials:

Over the years that we have been operating Cool Cooks have acquired a solid clientbase in the local area and further afield providing food catering services for corporate businesses, clubs and associations; that we continue to do functions for on a regular and ad hoc basis. Below is a selection of what previous clients have said about our catering services:

We had a lovely evening..... »

"We had a lovely evening this summer when Kevin and team cooked a spit roast dinner. We had many comments from our guests about the delicious food, so thank you for all you hard work to make our evening a great success."

Claire Gratton

We found cool cooks very accommodating..... »

"We used cool cooks for my daughters christening. There were 100 adults at 40 kids. We decided on a hog roast. The meat was delicious, as was the salads etc. There was plenty of food and at a very reasonable price. Everyone commented on how good the food was. We found cool cooks very accommodating and helpful throughout. Thank u cool cooks. We will definitely use you again."

Katie Barnes

50th birthday party..... »

"Thank you so much for making my 50th birthday party a success. As you know, this is was the first time we've used caterers to host a party at home and was keen that the quality of food and service were high. I've had nothing but compliments from all my guests who raved about the food, quality & quantity! and the efficient staff.

From our initial contact with you, everything has been easy. The flexibility you offered made us choose you, and I liked the way we weren't 'forced' to have anything we didn't want, or made to sign up to a 'package' – as can sometimes be the case with caterers. There was nothing I would have done differently. Things could not have gone any better. Many thanks to you and your team."

Nancy Flint

Gem Distribution Ltd..... »

"Gem have been using Cool Cooks for over three years now and wouldn’t do so if they weren’t offering well priced great quality food. To assign our loyalty just to the food would be doing Kevin and his team a disservice as they have always been very professional, courteous and above all reliable; whether they are catering for 25 or 250. We recently had an event for 250 people and used Cool Cooks for a food’s from around the world theme and they did not let us down. We had five food stations each offering a different cuisine – from America a BBQ, from Italy Pizza and Pasta, from Mexico Fajitas and Tacos, from China Stir-fry (you choose the ingredients) and from France Crepes and Waffles. Best of all after the initial rush Kevin had his team cook to order so it was always fresh and hot. We look forward to coming up with even more complicated food requirements for Cool Cooks to provide in the coming year."

30th Birthday party..... »

"My husband and I used Cool Cooks to cater our joint 30th Birthday party and our Wedding. When it came to planning menus Kevin’s experience and expertise soon became clear. We had strict budgets for both and he provided a wonderful and generous buffet for 200 for the birthday party (which was about the only thing that went right that night) and for the Wedding an excellent sit down meal for 100 followed by another wonderful evening buffet. Kevin was a rock for both events and without him we wouldn’t have enjoyed either! We are very happy to recommend Cool Cooks."

Rosie Phillips

Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) Summer Garden Party..... »

"Cool Cooks provided a BBQ for our RLB Summer Garden Party. We found them to be professional, friendly and helpful. They arrived to our venue early with a self-sufficient refrigerated van, 3 servers to help the event run smoothly, and once the food had been served (but not too soon) cleared away quietly and thoroughly. We had many compliments on the food and the portions per person were very generous, so much so that most of us left with doggy bags after the event! I liked the fact our BBQ package included for china plates and metal cutlery for a price where most others were providing disposable paper plates and plastic cutlery. I also found it very helpful that there was an option of different packages to suit different budgets. I would recommend Cool Cooks and definitely consider booking them again for any future events"

The Rotary Club of Hertford..... »

"The Rotary Club of Hertford have enjoyed CoolCooks food for several events. One was for our annual Senior Citizens Christmas lunch where over 100 guests were catered for. An excellent meal and friendly service was provided by Kevin and his team."

Peter Rawlings
Past President and Chairman of the Community Committee

Always high quality food and service..... »
