Wonderful wedding feasts using locally sourced ingredients, often from the family farm
Who are we...
I am Natalia Maddison, chief cook of Cotswold Cooks. My inspiration comes from the simplicity of fresh, seasonal, rustic food cooked using techniques from around the world especially the Mediterranean.

We cook wedding feasts using locally sourced ingredients - often directly from our organic farm - prepared with innovation and simplicity. We cater for all types of events but especially love ones that are just a little bit different, individual and original...
Recent examples of wedding menus we have cooked include:
- pan con tomate with fire toasted ciabatta and Serrano ham carved in front of guests
- salad of grilled chicory, macerated strawberries and labneh
- slow cooked lamb with roasted beetroot and beet leaves, butternut squash with gremolata and rocket salad with pinenuts, parmesan and dressing.
- tapas starters of hummus, red pepper and chilli salsa, toasted paprika almonds, and olives

Our catering company goes hand in hand with the family farm purtonhouseorganics.co.uk. We have a constant supply of fresh produce, and only when the numbers are too high or items unavailable do I go to other suppliers.
Coming from an organic farm I use a large network of local food producers that I know personally. The butchers that I use know the farms from which the meat comes from, farms that use traditional methods where the animal has plenty of space and a good natural habitat in which to roam. I get fantastic sourdough bread from Thierry at la Parisienne, a real artisan baker ~ something very difficult to find in England nowadays. Our organic butter comes from the Berkeley farm Guernsey cows. I often use the local farmers' markets and Cirencester market every Friday for cheese. Fairtrade tea and coffee come from my eldest sister's company edgcumbes.co.uk , and hand-made chocolates are made by another sister, Ibby ibbyschocolatekitchen.com.
