Welcome to The Little Pickle - Bespoke private catering for any occasion and pop up dining in the Cotswolds and further afield.

We had an amazing weekend, in no small measure due to Alex. He was all that I could have hoped for and more. He looked after us all perfectly. The food was utterly delicious but what I particularly loved was his speed and efficiency, his manner and courtesy and the way he kept the kitchen spotless. He did all the clearing up and laid the table. His presentation was fantastic. What a great young man. The sort that you would love as a son in law! (February 2015)
Many, many thanks for sending me Alex! Another triumphant dinner party - he received a round of applause from my guests at the end of the meal! (March 2015)
He (Alex) was utterly brilliant - one of the best. Such a great cook, delicious and inventive and creative, and really tidy. Completely faultless. (April 2015)
Please thank Jess again for a fantastic meal, we had an amazing time on Saturday! (May 2015)
There just aren't enough superlatives to do justice to Alex's talents. We ate the most delicious food - elegantly presented with huge style not to mention efficiency. Nothing phased him and our 2 extremely fussy eaters (grand daughters 5 & 3) cleared their plates!
Everyone was hugely impressed by the variety and volume of food he produced in the most calm and unflappable way. We were sad to wave him goodbye on Sunday afternoon and polished off delicious leftovers for supper! The Kitchen has never looked more immaculate either. (June 2015)
Alex was amazing - we can't praise him highly enough. The food was 'out of this world' and he was just so calm and charming. He had many offers of "please can you come and live with us?
The 6 course dinner on Sat evening was fabulous - better than the tasting menu at Gidleigh Park! (August 2015)
Thank you to Jess from The Little Pickle, for delivering on my request, to wow my wife and guests with the look, taste and experience. It was a great gastronomical delight and to quote one guest; every dish looked fantastic and every dish needed to be tasted, and when tasted the flavours were exquisite. (October 2015)
Thank you so much for your amazing meal on Saturday night!! Everyone at the Hen Party loved it!!!! Not quite sure how you managed it in such a tiny kitchen!! (January 2016)
Last nights menu was absolutely delicious Alex and Jess thank you! It was a really lovely evening! Wishing you continued success with your business! (January 2016)
Alex, the meal you cooked in our house on Saturday night was out of this world. The menu was perfect and each course just got better and better. Thank you so much, you helped make a truly memorable birthday for my father in law. (February 2016)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you again for what was a really fantastic meal on Saturday night.
Everyone was so overwhelmed by the quality of the menu and service, the whole thing was so professional. We couldn’t have asked for better caterers – you really did make it so easy and hassle free for us.” (March 2016)

About Alex

The Little Pickle was set up in 2014 by two people with a huge passion for great food, excellent service and homemade pickles. Since then Alex and Jess have been providing bespoke private catering and pop-up dining events in the Cotswolds and further afield. Our ever growing range of pickles and chutneys have been received with great success in several stores in the Cotswolds and food fairs across the UK.

Jess has always been passionate about delicious food and great service. After finishing a degree in Interior Architecture she decided to move abroad to follow her passion for food and travelling. She worked for 5 years as a chef in the French and Austrian Alps as well as Portugal, Mallorca and Gibraltar. Gaining lots of experience and finding her own style while experimenting with local cuisines. Jess also completed a stage at a one Michelin starred restaurant in Birmingham where she was able to relish the buzz of a busy service and explore a new area of the hospitality industry.

Alex’s catering career started as a chef for an event company based in London, gaining experience working in a number of different events of all styles and sizes. Following his time in London, Alex decided to combine his favourite passions, cooking, travel and skiing and spent the next five years working in some of the best luxury chalets of the French and Austrian Alps as well as some fantastic Mediterranean villas in Mallorca and Portugal. His time away allowed Alex to develop his own unique style and tailor-made approach to all his dishes.
