sustainable, family-run wedding & event catering

about us

Ginger Snap is a sustainable, family-run wedding and event catering business serving the North of England and Scotland.

For more than 18 years we have been creating food and drink experiences that are the heart of the party, uniting friends and families and leaving happy memories for years to come. 

We are fanatical about seasonal British food and run the business from our farm in North Cumbria. We grow many of our own herbs and there is a bounty of ingredients in our hedgerows such as sloes, brambles, crab apples and damsons.  With many wild herbs growing on the farm like meadowsweet, wild garlic and sweet cicely.  We use producers that we have built up relationships with, some of whom we have known for many years. 

Our chefs are passionate, driven & experienced, continually pushing the boundaries of traditional cuisine to create delicious, seasonal & exciting food inspired by the beauty and diversity of Britain’s landscape.

Our role in your event is to use our expertise and imagination to guide you through the process. We love to cater for parties of all shapes and sizes and can be involved in as much or as little as you like. Ultimately our aim is to leave you and your guests well fed, content and happy. Get in touch to discuss your special day.

Seasonal Delights: Explore Our Menus

Our menus are created to showcase the very best of the British seasonal landscape, allowing us to use the best produce as and when it arrives in season.

Harvesting Sustainability
With this in mind, in 2021 we moved Ginger Snap (and our young family) to a working farm where we intend to offset our impact on the environment as much as possible. 

We have planted more trees and hedges and an orchard of traditional fruits such as apples and plums. Our hedgerows are bursting with damsons, sloes and haws. Our fields are filled with herbs like sorrel, lady’s smock and sweet cicely and our woods are rife with wild garlic, primrose and mushrooms. We dry, pickle, ferment and preserve as much as possible to use out of season, meaning there is very little waste.
