Foodie Dishes

Foodie Dishes

5The CQ Foodie Dishes are all homemade dishes, using quality, fresh ingredients. Ready to ‘throw in the oven’, they make the perfect Treat Tea 😊

Homemade, fresh to order, they will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days or are freezable – perfect to take on Staycation or save for another day!

PLEASE NOTE:  Foodie Dishes are available sporadically at the moment.  I base the menu on the events that we have booked in.  

However, if you have an event that you would like Foodie Dishes for, whereby you are catering for 10 people or more, then please do get in touch.
