MIKE AND OLLIE IS A 'PREP HARD, CATER EASY LTD' COMPANY
“MIKE AND OLLIE USE FRESH, SEASONAL INGREDIENTS TO CRAFT A RANGE OF MOUTH WATERING DISHES, EACH A FUSION OF FLAVOURS THAT WORK INCREDIBLY TOGETHER. EVERY DETAIL IS TAKEN CARE OF FROM THE DECOR, LIGHTING AND MUSIC TO THE PRESENTATION OF DELICIOUS FOOD. IT’S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN AND SAVOR NEW INGREDIENTS AT THEIR BEST, AND MEET PEOPLE FROM THE LOCAL COMMUNITY WHO SHARE A PASSION FOR AMAZING FOOD”
We started life in 2001 cooking seasonal, broadly influenced food on a series of precariously balanced shipping pallets, underneath a borrowed stripey tarp on Douglas Way, Deptford.
This led to a healthy two year stint supper-clubbing at the original Deptford Project and since then we have opened a small production kitchen to address the needs of our catering clients, a small flatbread arch in Deptford and a 32 cover bar/diner in Camberwell.
We differentiate ourselves with our personal and rustic approach, with not an ounce of the ‘corporate’ to be found within miles.
We are a band of young and experienced cooks,
sommeliers and event organisers who run market stalls, pop-up restaurants and create
unique food and drink events in and around
the country. We work hard, passionately
and thoughtfully to create truly memorable
We are serious about making people happy
through the food that we produce. The food we
create is full of harmonious contradictions. It’s
vibrant and bold yet familiar and comforting; it’s
beautiful to look at yet close to its original form;
it’s full of surprising drama yet always comes
together as one.
Our food is freshly-made and free from
preservatives and colouring. Wherever possible,
we use organic and source our goods locally
within Britain and Europe. Many of our dishes
have a distinctly cosmopolitan flavour as we’re
busy peppering our menus with favourite foods
from around the world, from France to India, Italy
to Lebanon. What we offer can be as
contemporary or as traditional as you like, and
the quality of the food will always be exceptional.
