Tapas Menu

Why not host a tapas party in you own home? My charge is a fixed £30 per head (plus any travel expenses), for a minimum of 12 people.  For that you will be served 6 different dishes of your choice from the lists below, plus olives, a mixed Spanish salad, 2 savoury dips, plenty of fresh bread and a dessert. A waitress is included in the price. You can add more dishes if you wish at extra cost. 

I am based near St Ives, Cambridgeshire and am well placed also for Huntingdon, Peterborough, Cambridge and Norfolk. Contact me now to book and arrange your tapas evening.

Choose your own custom combination from the menus, then sit back and relax. Hot and cold dishes, meat, fish and vegetarian options are offered. I guarantee there will be more than enough food for everyone!

Please choose 2 or more dishes from Menu 1, and the remainder from Menu 2. Choose a dessert (choice of 2 desserts at no extra cost if 16 or more diners). If you would like a larger selection of dishes, please ask for a quote. Most dishes are gluten free and nut free, but please let me know if you require a fully GF or NF meal. Please refer to my advice on allergens.
