Taste the Magic at
Le Quercy Kitchen

 

About Me

Hello, welcome to my website.  Jill here, owner, creator and chief cook and bottle washer of my newly formed catering service “Le Quercy Kitchen” located in the beautiful southwest region of France, called The Lot.


For many years, catering has played a huge part in my existence. I started out life like many, working the humdrum 9 till 5 until our children arrived. First Georgina, then James and last but not least, Adam. Once the terrible twos had passed in our oldest, I decided it was time to head back to the grindstone, but this time in my real passion : Food. Creating, tasting and eating is my mantra. Over a period of years, I built up a small catering business in England where I made wedding and celebration cakes whilst also supplying various outlets with smaller cakes, sandwiches and ready-meals. My small company evolved quite suddenly with our two new arrivals! One was a petite crêpe mobile stand (rather ironic now isn’t it!) and the other a very large catering trailer for outdoor events which I used to tow around the Somerset countrywide.


Fast forward to October 2007 and I’m sat in a car with sleepy children and husband, the boot full of suitcases, driving down through France to start our new life.  After many years of enjoying the beautiful French countryside and seeing

the children develop their language skills and grow, I decided that I needed a new challenge, and what a challenge it is ! I was most definitely not ready for the hoops I would have to jump through, the paperwork I would have to file and the French I would have to speak to get, to where I am today ! But I did, and “Le Quercy Kitchen” was born (named after the region in France where I live). I continue to create cakes for special occasions and weddings but I also now cater for private groups providing 4 and 5 course menus. I have also recently started to supply high class gite establishments with home prepared frozen ready meals, made with fresh local produce, for those days when you just can’t be bothered ! And yes, I can assure you, I have them too !! (my husband lives for those days, just to get a bowl of my meatballs, yum!)


I could never have imaged my life turning out like this, living in this stunning country and working with something that I love. All due to taking a risk a few years ago and pushing on with what I enjoy the the most … FOOD !

Everyday cakes, celebration cakes and tiered wedding cakes are my all year round occupation but in the summer I am also available as a private chef and caterer (traiteur) for small to medium events at your home, holiday rental or local chateau.  Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options upon discussion.


All my goods are handcrafted, baked and served with a side of love.

"There is no love sincerer than the love of food"  George Bernard Shaw.
