Tandem Catering Godalming is a successful and well-established family run catering company operating from our Surrey kitchen.
Since 2002 we have supplied exceptional food and service for weddings and events throughout Surrey, West Sussex, Hampshire and West London.
We create dishes for all occasions that are delicious, generous, appetising and seasonal. We take the greatest care to use the finest and freshest ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible.
Whether your style is rustic or classic, simple or sumptuous we present our food with the same distinctive, natural elegance on which we have built our reputation.
Tom trained for a Cordon Bleu qualification at Tante Marie Culinary Academy after university. During this time he also developed an interest in food writing, styling and photography.
After graduation from Tante Marie, Tom joined the content team at Great British Chefs based in Angel, London. There he wrote articles on international cuisine, assisted on recipe video shoots and edited the recipes of a number of the UK’s top Michelin starred chefs
Always itching to get back into the kitchen, Tom rejoined the Tandem team in 2016, and now spends his time developing new recipes and cooking at all events.
In an earlier life, Carole was a teacher of classical ballet, but her keen interest in all aspects of cookery led her to swap her pointe shoes and tutus for knives, whisks and wooden spoons.
After gaining experience cooking for private clients in London and the Home Counties, Carole met Sara Hester (the co-founder of the original Tandem Catering), whilst living in the same Kentish village.
Between them an idea was born - to start a catering company with a difference. We wanted to offer food that was home-made, generous and delicious yet creative, contemporary and elegant.
In 2000 Tandem Catering was formed and in 2002, as a result of Carole and her family moving to Godalming in Surrey, Tandem Catering Godalming was created and continues to grow busier each year whilst still retaining the original all-important company ethos.
