We met on our environmental masters course at Brighton uni and bonded over our mutual passion for food and the environment. For the 10 years since we have delighted in cooking delicious feasts for each other and planning our future foodie business. When Giulia left the London rat race at the end of 2018, Gourmet Girls was born!
Our food combines Giulia’s Italian heritage with Kate’s love of crafting everything from scratch, from yoghurt to halloumi to limoncello. As you would find in any Italian kitchen, we use simple, local and seasonal ingredients to create unforgettable dishes. The Gourmet Girls experience is as much about the event as the delicious food, bringing people together for an evening of food, fun and laughter.
As environmental consultants, sustainability is at the heart of our food and our business. Sustainability can be a wishy washy term. For us it means minimising waste, using lesser known produce and showcasing every part of the ingredient wherever we can. In planning our menus, we focus on local, seasonal produce and the balance of ingredients on the plate, right down to its carbon footprint - if your body can’t digest more than 70g of red meat in one sitting, then there is no point in putting any more than that on a plate!
“The entire meal was well thought out and well put together. It was delicious and I am so impressed with the skill and love put into the food this evening.”
