I am a former IT Consultant who changed career by setting up and running Wombie's Kitchen, a catering company that is passionate about inclusive food for people living with allergies or those who have made food lifestyle choices.
Wombie's Kitchen came to life after I took a year out to become a student again studying Stadium Events Management and Culinary Skills. A chance email exchange led to my first event and I haven't looked back.
My interest in making food for those with additional requirements stems from having a child with a severe dairy allergy. When he was born and a young child the free-from ranges in the supermarkets were not as full as they are now. He was so sensitive to milk, kissing him after drinking milky tea would bring out a reaction, that we banned dairy in the house (until he'd at least gone to bed!). I adapted everyday recipes to ensure that the family all had great food to eat. 13 years of cooking this way has enabled me to make most meals dairy-free, much of it is coincidentally gluten-free & nut-free. I also have a keen interest in vegan and vegetarian food and I wanted to share this with others.
I know from experience that eating out as a free-from person is hard, the choices are limited if places agree to serve you at all. I want to ensure that any guest attending an event I am catering has something equally good, if not better, to eat as their 'normal' co-event goers.
I currently cater for takeaways, supper clubs, garden parties, christening breakfasts, dinner parties, celebration events and I also create a variety of free-from and ‘normal’ gifts suitable for any occasion.
