Hi Tessa

I just wanted to thank you so much for the buffet on Saturday. So many people provide very basic fare with cheap ingredients and we really appreciated the quality and range of what you provided. People thought that it was excellent and I had a few people asking for your contact details. 


Co-operatives East Secretariat - Cambridge

Tessa did an amazing afternoon tea for 80 people (including a few with special dietary requirements). The food was abundant, beautifully presented & all really yummy. Many guests asked for Tessaโ€™s details because they were so impressed.
