'Lisa's catering not only supplies faultlessly delicious food every time, but she also knows exactly the right kind of food to suggest for every possible occasion. Her cooking is peerless and her style discreet yet charming - Black Pot never disappoints'. Arabella Weir

'I can thoroughly recommend Black Pot Catering as the best in the business. From my wedding in Cornwall to a Christmas drinks party or a dinner for 12, Lisa and her team are experts at producing food to die for. Her creative flair and delicious, mouthwatering menus and her passion for the best ingredients and exquisite flavours make everything she produces feel home cooked and special. She is brilliantly organised and understanding about budgets. Nothing is too much to ask and I always feel like she and her team are enjoying the event as much as the people they are serving.' Charlotte Moore, controller BBC1

'We all ate the most delicious chorizo and chestnut soup with quail and harissa which was mind bogglingly good, rustic and excellent. Lisa cooks great food that makes for a great atmosphere.' Nadav Kander, photographer

'I have worked with Lisa Silcock and her team at Black Pot Catering for the last 12 years and I have used them regularly for various types of events.  Lisa is a consummate professional, the menu is always a perfect compliment to the occasion, the food always innovative and delicious and the service flawless and charming.   I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Black Pot for private or business functions.'  Robin Dicker QC

'If you need any type of catering Black Pot is the go to company – on time and on budget, the food is inventive and delicious and served and presented beautifully. There wasn’t a dietary restriction that couldn’t be catered for (and gluten-free vegetarians are challenging from many points of view!) The first time I used Black Pot I had one meeting where decisions were made effectively, and the next time I saw Lisa and her team they were serving me tomato and chilli soup in an espresso cup. Yum!' Lucy Scher, Director The Script Factory

'Black Pot Catering have supplied innovative and beautifully presented canapes for parties we have held here. They are charming, professional and above all passionate about food. A joy to work with!' Robyn Lines, former National Theatre Director of Catering

'We discovered Black Pot at a friend's party and the food was so delicious we swiftly hired Lisa and her team to cook for us. Since then, Black Pot have catered for a wide range of evenings at our house. We're never disappointed by the imaginative range of menus and the quality of the food.' Colleen Toomey & Stephen Nathan QC

'We are writing to thank you for all the preparation and hard work that helped to make our wedding day wonderful. The wedding breakfast menu you devised was just right; you patiently listened to our often disconnected ideas and somehow hit upon the delicious fare we imagined. One of our guests ventured that it was the best wedding breakfast they'd ever had ! Thanks also to your excellent team, who were responsible for the day going so smoothly. We both felt completely relaxed and confident that everything was in hand, allowing us to really enjoy the day.' Andrew Ginner & Lucy Bradnock
