Octavia’s Kitchen is a boutique cooking company, based in Chelsea, Central London. We cater for high end events, with a creative and stylish approach.



Dear Octavia, I just wanted to say how impressed Felicity and I were with the catering. The canapes that you prepared certainly rank among the best I have ever tasted. If we ever hold a similar event we know where to come. Best wishes.

I attended a reception recently in which the hors d’oeuvres were created by Octavia and served by her and assistants. The quality of the food was excellent and the serving and design of the hors d’oeuvres most creative. I would have no hesitation in recommending Octavia for any intimate reception where quality and service is demanded.

Octavia chose, prepared and served the most wonderful food at her parents drinks party just before Christmas. The ‘nibbles’ were beautiful to look at and tasted wonderful. They were original and interesting and there were lots of them - in fact everything was just what was wanted and more. I was aware that I was not the only guest that was enjoying the food, everyone was making complimentary comments. I believe Octavia and her food would greatly enhance any party.

I was lucky enough to try Octavia's canapes at a drinks party I went to recently, and was really impressed. They were really beautiful, and tasted utterly delicious. Nothing like I'd ever had before. They were all fantastic but I would especially recommend the quails eggs with hollandaise and chicken liver brioche. I am definitely going to use Octavia the next time I have a drinks party myself.

Octavia has catered for us on many occasions, including canapés for our son's Christening, and several dinner parties. She has always produced delicious and innovative food. Many of our guests have commented on the high quality of the food. Octavia is highly professional, and we would thoroughly recommend her.
