Hello, I'm Helen...
Although I have people who help me out for larger jobs, Moveable Feasts is mostly me! I do the cooking in my own kitchen and it's me you'll be dealing with when you order.
I'm not a formally trained chef, just a life-long food enthusiast who loves to cook. My friends told me for years that I should cook for a living, so after I took redundancy from a 20-year career in local government, I decided to
go for it!
What I do best is old-fashioned home cooking - focussing on flavour, using the best ingredients I can find, and made by hand with love and care. I am also especially interested in lower-calorie cooking for people who want to lose weight or generally maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have personally had a lot of success losing weight by following Slimming World's guidelines and I enjoy helping to support anyone who wants to eat tasty satisfying food, while shedding some calories. Many of my home-delivery meals are specifically designed around this way of eating and I'm always happy to chat about what's in a dish and whether it's right for you. I can also customise dishes to accommodate allergies or other requirements.
Since I live in Chorlton, in south Manchester, I am lucky to be surrounded by great food suppliers and a wealth of restaurants and food businesses to be inspired by.
My particular favourite cuisines are the sunshine-filled ones of the Mediterranean and Middle East, where fresh fruit and vegetables are the stars, but I also love traditional British comfort food and South Asian curries.
Take a look at the Home Delivery Menu page for dishes you can order and have delivered to your home. The menu will change from time to time, and if you have some favourites you'd like to see there, I'd be delighted to hear about them!
If you are thinking of Private Catering, or food for a party, then anything goes! Please feel free to get in touch, at no obligation, to talk to me about what you have in mind. I create the menu for each individual job from scratch to suit your occasion and your budget.
I look forward to serving up something delicious for you!
For your peace of mind:
I am registered with Manchester City Council and am regularly inspected by the Environmental Health team. I have always been rated at 5 (very good) for food hygiene.
I hold a CIEH accredited 'Level 2' certificate in Hygiene & Food Safety for Catering
I hold public liability insurance up to £5,000,000.
