Devine Bettys Catering Co
Devine Bettys is the caterer of choice for Northamptonshire foodies demanding something a bit different. Liz and Emma are both passionate about food – both the ingredients and the presentation – and will go to great lengths to ensure their dishes are made from authentic ingredients. If a Peruvian dish requires Aji Amarillo chillis, they will source them rather than use a substitute.
From intimate dinner parties to extravagant weddings, via shoot lunches and birthday parties, Devine Bettys devises imaginative menus, revises recipes to suit the customer’s tastes and delivers the most beautifully presented food. Emma and Liz will also organise the marquees, tables, chairs and staff if required – everything to make the occasion run smoothly and look stunning.
Because their approach is so personal and tailor-made, don’t expect set menus. Instead, they create each menu to reflect the customer’s taste, lives and experiences. They have delivered pie and mash weddings, Brazilian tapas, Peruvian feasts, Lebanese lunches and American dining. But if you want a Russian breakfast, Emma and Liz will relish the challenge of researching, testing and tweaking dishes until they have found a selection that will suit – and surprise.
Their food can also be tasted at the regular supper clubs they run at Brewbabu in Oundle, Stanley’s in Kettering and the Beerhouse in Market Harborough. Serving set menus themed around a country’s cuisine, expect dishes such as empanadas, albondigas and envueltos de betenjena at a Spanish night, or Acaraje, pao de quijo, frango churrasco, costello de porko assada with aji and chimmichurri on the side at a Brazilian night. Whatever the theme, the dishes will be imaginative and authentic.
Liz and Emma are both quirky characters, brimful of fun and passion, and this is reflected in all their food, which really does taste as good as it looks.
