Welcome to dido’s fine foods
I’m Dido and I have always had a love and passion for food! Growing up, food was a reason to celebrate – on special occasions my family home would be filled with beautiful home cooked meals and elaborately laid tables, whether that was for a birthday or an anniversary celebration.
I have a wealth of experience and undertook culinary training at Leith’s School of Food and Wine, an award-winning cookery school based in London. From there, I went on to working at the wonderful Le Caprice restaurant in London for three years, then the Bleeding Heart where I was a Junior Sous Chef, before returning back to the Caprice Group again, this time working for Daphne’s. I had a desire to take everything I had learned from my time in London and create my own catering and food consultancy company back in Thame, Oxfordshire, creating dido’s fine foods! dido’s fine foods offers everything from Private Chef services through to event catering.
More recently I have launched dido’s @ home, a weekly menu which is delivered to local Oxfordshire homes, that uses seasonal vegetables and local produce to produce a delicious, restaurant quality, three course menu. The meals only need to be assembled and heated to be enjoyed in the comfort of your home.
A three course meal, or a cake or you choose your own way to enjoy dido's food @ home.

Professional gastronomy from a lovely person. Dido takes the trouble to really understand the brief; she produces a magnificent result every time; and all with a minimum of fuss. Happy to recommend her meals with any of my wines!
The incredible food you did for Sasha’s wedding party - it was completely brilliant from beginning to end and every mouthful delicious - thank you for being brilliant.
All our family were full of praise for the hard work that went on behind the scenes - thank you and your team again for organising Seder with us.

You are clearly extremely accomplished and a consummate professional - it is becoming increasingly rare to find a service that delivers - I felt you and your service certainly did just that. ALL the food was delicious.
Dido is a very good cook. She has cooked several dinner parties for me.
Every dish has been highly professionally prepared and delicious to eat. She is reliable and sensible and I recommend her highly.

It was wonderful working with Dido for two events. From our initial discussion she was able to craft two wonderful menus which suited each event perfectly. The food was prepared with care and absolutely delicious.
The Grilled Nectarine, mozzarella and basil tapenade canapé was a favourite, however all my guests thoroughly enjoyed the rare roast fillet of beef, which was cooked to perfection.
Thank you for two wonderful evenings Dido.
