The food on Saturday was absolutely incredible!! We have had so many guests tell us it was the best wedding meal they have ever had and they couldn’t believe how tender the meat was or how well the food was presented for 140 people. The sugar blown plums with cassis sorbet went down an absolute treat! We were just absolutely blown away at your attention to detail and incredibly impressed with the canapés too! Everyone was so impressed with how friendly and professional all of the team were who topped up our glasses and served up our meal. We really can’t thank you all enough for helping to make our day so special.”

I was mother of the bride at Kinnaird last Saturday where you provided a first-class service. I wanted to write personally to say an enormous thank you. Your website says your aim is to ‘exceed expectations’ and you certainly achieved that last week! The selection of food from the canapés to the puddings was truly excellent and hugely enjoyed by many guests who commented on the high quality of the food.

Initially I wasn’t entirely certain how Laura’s desire to have tapas would work but you did an excellent job and it was way beyond anything I expected.

Your staff were all, without exception, friendly, helpful and courteous but also managed to embrace and enjoy the atmosphere and to engage with the guests in a really personal way. It was a wonderful occasion complimented by all your hard work so thank you very much indeed.”

Our relationship with Alan Boslem started in 2009 when we agreed that Big Bite would provide all Crear catering requirements. Crear weddings are highly individualised and at the upper end of the market. One of the major attractions to customers is the exceptionally high quality of Alan Boslem and Big Bite’s catering. Alan’s work has an exceptionally positive reputation with Crear customers.

At Crear, we knew of Alan’s successful career history at Gleneagles and of his reputation for strong technical skills. This was of course a major attraction for us. However, we also admired the way that Alan keeps his skills up to date with working visits to Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and top end restaurants and venues.  Alan caters for approximately 5000 Crear customers per year. Over the years we have had tens of thousands of satisfied visitors all fed by Big Bite.”

The food was amazing – thank you so much! The seafood was the best we’ve tasted and everything was such good quality! The buffet worked perfectly into our day and everyone was raving about all of it. Also, the Oban whiskey & chocolate torte was out of this world!

Many, many thanks again and we’ll hopefully be able to get you booked up for some more events!!!”


Alan and I were involved with the compilation of the menu and production of the fundraising meal at the personal request of Gordon Ramsey for the Spina Bifida Dinner in 2009.

We involved a few other prominent Scottish Chefs along with a class of Trainee Chef Students from Motherwell College.

The dinner was held in the Science Centre in Glasgow for circa 250 guests paying £500 per head, we were delighted when Gordon informed us that the event raised £118,000 for a very worthy cause. To quote Gordon Ramsay from his interview on the Fred McAuley show the following day “Willie and his team have cooked the most outstanding meal that I have ever eaten anywhere in the world for these numbers”.

From the taste testing and the menu organisation right through to the day itself, everything was handled by Alan with the utmost professionalism and flexibility, which, given that we were organising the wedding from abroad we found to be a wholly rewarding and positive experience.

The food and service on the day itself was top-notch and we received many positive compliments. Alan’s sugar blown sorbet filled apple was the highlight and provided (apart from the bride of course) one of the day’s wow factors! We would always recommend the Big Bite team!”
