Christmas. Turkey time! Gatherings of friends and family to celebrate the festive season with scrumptious food and maybe a glass of something. Busy for caterers but nice events to cater for. We were asked to cater for 200 pensioners in Stockport. The function room had just been re furbished and was lovely BUT they had no kitchen AT ALL only a small office and a car park …….. They booked the function on a scorching July day, the 20th of Dec was dark, freezing with the odd romantic snow flurry. It was a tough afternoon for the waitresses getting around tight tables and the chefs working outside in the car park but the mood was lifted when some old dear at the end of the meal asked if there was any chance of a cappuccino coffee???

By Royal Apointment!!

By Request, By Royal Appointment!

catering in Manchester for Royalty

No its not a posh police “line up”. Its By Request caterers now by royal appointment

We thought we had “arrived” when we were asked to cater for the visit to Manchester of the Duchess of Gloucester, but as you can see from the photo above we reached the top of the Royal family tree!!!

Her Royal Highness Elizabeth II recently visited one of our clients to take part in a fun night for staff. She was treated to a tasty selection of hand created nibbly treats produced by the chefs of By Request, she was waited on hand and foot. Her every whim was attended to. At the end of the evening we bowed respectfully and withdrew………………it turned out she was called Edna and she was a “look a like”!! Just shows you cant trust anyone!!!

By Request Testimonial

24 July 2011

Many, many thanks indeed for the excellent food that you provided yesterday at our Golden Wedding Anniversary celebrations The food was enjoyed by everyone. The service couldn’t have been better. The two servers who were very friendly were most attentive and responded to our every need, they were perfect. I will recommend your company to all that need outside caterers that are reliable and provide good food. In fact only today I have today passed on your name and telephone number to a friend who is about to about to hold a wedding reception

Many thanks once again.

We always appreciate letters of thanks………..but we also appreciate emails of thanks, such as the one below!

Hi Carl,
 
Thank you for all your and your teams hard work on Friday. It was excellent and very professional. It was good for me as I did not worry about the food at any point on the day or the run up to the event.
 
We have received some good feedback from the attendees regarding the welcome, smooth running and the food at the event. The breakfasts were particularly well received.
 
Could you send over the invoice so I can arrange for it to go through our system?
 
Thanks
Dan

I realise its not cutting edge technology, but By Request are known for their food and their service rather than their grasp of html etc!!!

ANYWAY on our latest web site http://www.catering-manchester.co.uk/ it is now possible to download background information about the company, menus for our fork buffets, finger bufferts, hot food, canapes and sit down diners. All with prices and reminding you that the prices are all inclusive, so there are no sneaky extras.

I have used By Request on a number of occasions – for formal dinners to hotpot suppers. The food has always been excellent, and the service efficient, friendly and flexible. You will find cheaper caterers around, but if you want quality it is worth paying a bit extra. Canon John Gordon, Stockport

Top of the class

Just a short note to thank you and your colleagues for the super food you provided for our Headteachers meeting.   Everything looked and tasted great and we had many compliments from our visitors, who I’m sure will use your company in the future.

I have been using By Request for over 20 years in a business capacity, both for large and small groups and would be happy to recommend them to anyone.

Outside Caterers…………………Literally!!!

After doing what we do for over 23 years we still come across situations we hadn’t foreseen (usually situations nothing to do with us and completely beyond our control.

The wedding by a lake in Northwich was such an occasion – in the height of summer!! We arrived and set out our area for serving a summer bbq as the heavens opened. Because the weather hadn’t been great for the preceding few days we took a gazebo to cover the area if the weather didn’t improve. Seeing a man with a huge beard rounding up animals two by two and cramming them on his boat should have gave us a hint. It poured down!! And half an hour before the guests arrived the lake (which we now know is something called a “flash” began to rise…….and rise. The lake that began the day 30 yards from the marquee ending lapping around the tepee. We ended up silver serving the seated party goers instead of having them wade around the bbq. The bride did look VERY fetching in her matching gold wellies.
