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.
Many thanks indeed - your lunch yesterday was delicious and I have never seen so many clean plates!
The beef was particularly good, very tender and with a lovely flavour. We all thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful so thank you again.
I hope your wedding party goes well next weekend - I will definitely keep in touch for any future events.
We ordered from dido's fine food for a birthday surprise for my mother in law. The service and delivery was so well organised. We had the beef wellington and it melted in your mouth, the entire meal was wonderful!
Father’s Day dinner in Lockdown could have merged into all the other days, until I ordered our dinner from Dido's Fine Food. My husband enjoyed the beef fillet, roast potatoes and roast Cauliflower and pomegranate main that our children chose from the variety of menus Dido offered. The children's favourite, was the very generous chocolate roulade with fresh berries. The meal turned what could have been a normal Sunday dinner, into a very special and memorable day.
Dido's food is excellent and her service is second to none. I have used her on a number of occasions for small intimate meals and larger parties. She will listen to the brief, make suggestions and always delivers mouth watering food.
I would recommend her without hesitation.
Organising a 40th birthday celebration for a foodie was a challenge. With Dido’s inspiration, planning, preparation and delivery, there was a consensus of “Perfect!”. Ask about the canapés, the lobster in a butter sauce and steak, with portabello mushrooms, never mind the frites.
And the pud? Ask Dido! A triumph! Whose birthday’s next?
Always a delicious selection of food served in a lovely setting with great service, I have been to a couple now and have always had a wonderful night. Can’t wait until the next one!!! Xx
A wonderful evening with Dido's Fine Food. Wonderful food, marvellous ambience and it felt like a real treat!
Dido excels herself again. Amazing choice of food, prompt delivered and simply delicious. Will definitely use again - thank you.
Dido delivered the most wonderful 2 course dinner to celebrate my husbands birthday. The food was absolutely delicious, great quality and very generous portions too! I would highly recommend Dido’s fine food!
We had a memorable wedding anniversary this year.
Despite the lockdown, we had a great meal at home courtesy of dido’s fine food. I was missing Asian food like Thai or Malaysian so asked Dido what she could magic up. The result was a stupendous Thai Green Curry which was full of flavour with a lovely taste of lemon grass and very generous portions. Dessert was a delicious Chocolate roulade which was absolutely divine and disappeared very quickly. Highly recommended❤️ .
My first experience of a Lock-Down birthday was made really special by Dido's wonderful cuisine. The quality was superb, with really easy-to-follow instructions for heating-up items, and the quantities were more than generous. If you're wondering how to celebrate any occasion (in Lock Down or out!) look no further.
Dido recently cooked a three course meal at my home for my birthday. It was perfectly organised with suggestions to the menu and tweaks to suit our various tastes and dietary requirements! Dido was an absolute delight to have at our home, completely professional and even tidying up at the end with no dishes for us to wash! Our guests commented on how lovely the food was. I would highly recommend.
We had so many compliments about the food- a great variety of interesting dishes, something for everyone, so fresh for a summer party and beautifully presented.
The time you spent before the event was so helpful and reassuring, making the effort to come and visit and ensuring that you had a clear idea of exactly what we were looking for. At the party itself, everything was so easy, you preempted what we needed and when, attended to all our guests in a friendly and discrete way and meant that my parents (the guests of honour) and I could just get on and enjoy ourselves!
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the most delicious cake. It was as ever wonderful and totally delicious and everyone loved it. The meringues all went and Olive could not stop eating them and said next time could you make a 1000.
All in all a great success and thank you!
Just a note to say that we all enjoyed the meal provided by you for our celebration. The dishes were excellently prepared and had an authenticity that demonstrated your personal attention. You provided a very professional service of high quality.
My wife loved her birthday lunch, and we are most grateful to you for making it a special occasion.
Omg - you absolutely legend in the kitchen!!! We cannot thank you enough for the spectacular food, honestly it was perfect, I couldn't have asked for anything better. Totally divine and delicious and the steak was cooked to perfection. My only problem is I didn't take any photos of the food! We were so delighted and have had the most wonderful feedback... you haven't seen the last of us that is for sure! Hope the kitchen worked ok for you and you weren't put off by my guests (and me) popping in. Just wonderful - I haven't got enough superlatives!
Just wanted to thank you so much for yesterday. The day was a total success and everyone was so complimentary about your food and service. It went even better than I’d hoped. Becca is an asset to you as well.
I’ve been trying to think of a reason to host another party soon as it was so nice for me to just enjoy the day!
I can’t thank you enough for the excellent food and service you provided. It really made my birthday celebration. You were responsive, full of creative ideas and helpful throughout the planning stage and so calm and streamlined on the night. The food was excellent and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it. I’d highly recommend your service.
Your excellent cuisine and catering you did with your lovely team were faultless for Oliver and Amanda’s wedding in early August. You were very professional, and all your team were so friendly yet very attentive and not imposing in any way.
You left everywhere, the kitchen and greenhouse/conservatory spotless, and it was a joy to have you.
Thank you very much for all you did.
Dido was booked by our family to serve a celebratory dinner for 11 of us. She provided a really flexible approach to cater for all tastes and the food was lovely. Dido herself was really professional and managed everything beautifully with no fuss whatsoever. She made a very demanding job look very easy. Highly recommended.
We loved it all! An amazing dinner for a special family occasion, thank you. Such a treat and every dish was superb. We’ll recommend you to the owners very happily.
We have used Dido Fine Foods for both personal and professional events. Dido is a consummate professional and a talented culinary artist. Whether you want a fully catered, fully staffed sit down dinner or a buffet style pre-prepared feast for dozens, Dido and her team can accommodate and scale. For larger events, she coordinates with her extensive network of trusted & preferred vendors.
The food quality, presentation and taste are outstanding – you’ll have people raving about your party for months afterwards. Now when we host an event, people ask me – "Are you serving Dido again?" But, of course (wink wink)!
Finally, Dido is a lovely person who will listen and work alongside you to make sure you have the perfect experience – both for you and all your guests.
Dido many thanks for a wonderful evening. I was delighted with all the food and the family loved it and had a great time. Couldn’t have gone better thanks to you! Malcolm was delighted with it all.
So lucky to have Dido’s Fine Food supply all the food for our Golden Wedding celebration. Hot meals with hot and cold desserts cooked to perfection. Everyone at the celebration said how delicious it all was and how much they enjoyed it. She is a chef extraordinaire and would recommend her to anyone.

We had Dido for my 21st drinks and canapés at my Oxford College and then she came back to the same spot to cater for my daughters christening 16 years later!
We were completely thrilled with the food and service she and her team provided, and so pleased we asked her to cater for us again. The food was delicious - lovely ingredients, beautifully presented and super tasty. Dido was also great at all the to-ing and fro-ing beforehand and handling my many questions and requests. The staff on the day were top notch - very professional, friendly and efficient. I also thought that it was very good value for money indeed.
Thoroughly enjoyed working with Dido and her team for our end of summer garden party with friends - Dido made the whole process really easy and catered for numerous dietary requirements seamlessly, and deliciously! We will certainly be requesting Dido again for next years event.
