Lafafa Catering in 2022

Our 2022 season is underway so here’s an update on our activities so far:

We warmed up for the season with a supper club at Crugsillick Manor for Potluck Cornwall. With a continuous mezze and a meddley of puddings it was a great sucess.

Next came a lovely private party at Godolphin house – planned for lockdown years, the birthday celebration eventually happened in April this year.

This last weekend we did a faulous wedding in North Cornwall with 165 lunchtime servings and a whooping 300 for the evening meal. After a few hiccups with the oven, all went well and we hope we managed to produce a memorable meal – there were lots of positive feedback from guests and wedding couple alike.

Campsite catering

Over the summer Lafafa Catering has been catering on Mondays at Dove Meadow campsite in Marazion and Wednesdays at Higher Portreath campsite in Praa Sands.

This Monday will be our last session. Thanks to both campsites and all our lovely customers.

Slowly getting out and about

We’re catering the FNL VW show with the trailer at Treen campsite this weekend. Great to be doing a weekend event after so long and at such a beautiful location – its been great!

Over the summer we’ve been catering local campsites as well as at St Pirans Hall where weve been catering for over a year.

Embracing the wedding spirit

We are trying not to get too excited but as the year progresses we are discussing future wedding plans with couples, feeling hopeful that we will be able to take them to fruition. Its great to read some of the feedback from past weddings to remind us of the buzz of working with couples to help create the day of their dreams.

Thank you so much for the incredible food you created for our wedding – guests were blown away, as were we.

The overall service was incredible —we can’t believe what you pulled off in that space’.
