Best wedding food ever!

We had Babaganoush cater our wedding of 140 people last week and couldn't recommend them enough! They provided such a responsive and professional service right from the start. The food was amazing, we had loads of guests say it was the best wedding food they've ever had! Would highly recommend them.

First class

We used Baba Ganoush for our winter wedding and couldn't have been happier with the service and food we received. The team were incredibly responsive and helpful from the word go. We made a few tweaks to the sharing menu and they were incredibly accommodating for all of our dietary requirements. On the day, Ellie and her team were 10/10. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. We were so happy with how it all turned out and would absolutely recommend them for anyone wanting to have a sharing style meal for their wedding.

The most incredible wedding caterers!

My husband and I were married yesterday, and we hired Baba Ganoush to cater for our wedding. The food that they provided was delicious, we received compliments from many happy guests on the canapes and reception dinner! Our wedding was set in a medieval castle, and they worked with us to create the most grand medieval-style banquet in the castle's Great Hall. The entire experience of working with them was a joy, thanks to their professionalism, flexibility, and promptness with any communications - not to mention the lovely food tasting they offered me, my husband, and the Best Man! We absolutely loved our experience and would 100% recommend these caterers to any engaged couples planning a wedding!
Love, Nina & Cameron

Fabulous pies!

We went for the Yorkshire pie menu which we would absolutely recommend! The canapés and plated starters were all fantastic and presented beautifully. Loaded fried were a real hit for later on in the evening too - we got compliments from all our guests on the food!

Baba really excelled however on how flexible they were to people in our party with dietary requirements, be that an allergy, intolerance or preference they were exceptionally accommodating meaning we did not have to sorry about all of our guest receiving the same experience and having something wonderful to eat - a big thank you to Ashley and the team! xx

Amazing food and generous portions

Baba Ganoush provided the catering for our wedding and we couldn't have wished for better food. Everything was cooked to perfection and we had great feedback from all of our guests - there were definitely no leftovers, despite the generous portions! There were a few changes happening in the company during the time that we used them, which meant that we had a couple of different co-ordinators - however, they were all lovely and listened to everything that we wanted to make our day special. Thank you :)

Fantastic food and service

Baba Ganoush catered our wedding in September 2022, we served pie and mash alongside delicious canapés and the guests were all raving about the food. The team were so helpful during the planning process and the staff on the day were extremely polite and professional. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Thank you! X

Delicious, beautiful modern food - and a wonderful team

I am SO happy we chose Baba Ganoush to cater our wedding - Gabby was flexible, friendly, positive and professional, with a permanent 'can do attitude', even finding fridges for us at the last minute! But that all pales into comparison next to the food, which is fresh, beautiful to look at, and modern. It's interesting food that you actually want to eat, which isn't always a given at a wedding! We had the most delicious sharing starters, then plated mains and a dessert duo. Great veggie options too! Baba also did a wonderful brunch for us the next day which made all our hangovers disappear just by looking at it! THANK YOU XXX

Excellent food and service

We’re so happy we chose Baba Ganoush to cater our wedding, they were so professional and great to deal with from start to finish. Bay was a friendly, reassuring contact right through from the tasting to the day itself.

The food was absolutely delicious, from the Whitby crab starter right down to the bread and butter. And the canapé board for the bride was a nice touch. I really appreciated the wide choice for vegetarians, and the various dietary requirements were dealt with seamlessly.

Thank you Baba Ganoush!

Excellent food and service

We wanted the food at our wedding to be a highlight and talking point of our day. We are so happy we found Baba Ganoush Catering who delivered exactly this. From first contact, they have been professional and accommodating at every stage. We have lost count of the number of our guests who told us how impressed they had been with the food. We loved it too and it matched the quality from our tasting. All our guests with special dietary requirement were very happy with how their needs were met. Everything on the day felt like it was running smoothly and effortlessly and all the team were friendly and professional. We would highly recommend Baba Ganoush for wedding catering.

We love baba ganoush!

Like a lot of couples we started off looking for a venue. We're looking at websites and on the recommended suppliers list again and again is Baba Ganoush. Then we met venue owners and they mentioned Baba Ganoush. So my partner and I took the hint and got in touch. From the minute we did we never looked back.

Here are the reasons why:
1) They're genuinely lovely amazing people. When we turned up to do our tasting we stuck our head into the office and everyone looked up, smiled and said hello. We were in the wrong place bothering them and they literally didn't care someone jumped up to show us where to go.

2) They cook amazing food the way you want it. When we went to our tasting I knew I really wanted the steak but it was cooked rare. Knowing my family I knew they'd want it medium with sauce on the side. So that's exactly what they did. It was perfect on the day.

3) They were nothing but supportive.
We talked about evening food and I said I wanted to do it myself. They were so kind that I even managed to hire a fridge through their supplier literally enabling me to make that happen. They didn't have to but they did and it meant the world.

4) Their staff were the best. They were there the day before to set up and they were just the friendliest, loveliest people who truly cared about making the day amazing for us. They smashed it on the day and were always there for anything we needed.

I'm talking about Baba Ganoush in general as I'm sure everyone would have the same experience regardless of who they dealt with. But for us our super star was Gabby. She was always friendly, always got back to me quickly and she solved my problems like lightning. She is an absolute pro and I can't recommend her or Baba any more highly. It's for these reasons and many more that they're so well regarded in the industry. They have a fantastic reputation and they deserve it. Stop looking and book Baba Ganoush is my advice to you!

Perfect day. Perfect caterers.

From the start Baba we’re both professional and considerate.
We had a few dietary requirements, some fussy eaters and a bride and groom who were vegan. They catered for it all.
The food on our wedding day was even tastier than the tasting!
Guests even said the vegan cream was tastier than the diary alternative!
We had canapés, breads and a three course meal. For around 30 guest. Delicious!
Happy guests. Happy Bride and Groom.
Thank you to everyone in the Baba Ganoush team. We are very grateful for making our special day even more perfect.
