Honest Foods began location catering in 2006 by providing for commercials and music videos. Since then we have moved more into the world of film and television working for all the biggest production companies in and around London.
Founded by Leon Rothera who trained under some of London’s top chefs, we also are lucky enough to have Consultant Dietician Bridgette Wilson to support us with trickier dietary requirements and even visit the set to work with the chefs to adapt the food plan for any actors needing a more tailored menu option.
The thing that sets us apart from other film set caterers is that we offer health-conscious crew catering: ALL our chefs are REAL chefs with experience in top London restaurants and 5 star hotels. This is thanks to the private catering side of the business which caters for top events, private dinner parties and weddings.
What makes Honest Foods so popular with film crews is our ability to be diverse and meet all the needs of the crew.
There’ll be roast joints of meat for the geezers, great veggie food for the vegetarians (something we really pride ourselves in) and special touches for the foodies, like homemade pastry, cakes, stocks, sauces and most recently ice cream and sorbet. We do not use ‘packet’ rubbish!
Our first class service means that we will always accommodate the requirements of your production - we make sure that we work around you to provide bespoke options that fit in with you and your production.
We have the facilities to cater for long and short shoots using our 17 foot kitchen, 21 foot kitchen and refrigerated support vehicles. On several occasions we have brought both kitchens to cater for 350 extras on a film set.
