Welcome to Marilyn's Food

Introducing a high quality market stall using the finest seasonal produce from the South West
Personal catering services for your events, dinner parties & nights in.

Marilyn’s food is a small catering company based in the beautiful South West of England. Somerset and Wiltshire are wonderful places in which to cook and bake as there are always stacks of fresh, local produce. I am constantly inspired by the flavours and techniques of Middle Eastern cooking and create a changing menu reflecting seasonal local produce with aromatic spices, homemade pitta and griddle breads. A typical lunch would be a rich tagine with a generous helping of hummous, fresh pitta bread and pickled cucumber salad topped with freshly toasted dukkah and pomegranate seeds.
I also toast, blend and grind different spices and nuts to create delicious dukkahs and seasonings which are great as a casual starter, sprinkled on roasted fish, vegetables and meat or a gift for a foodie friend-pop down to the stall to try there are always tasters!

Hello everybody,

I am currently on the hunt for a wonderful cafe premises so please stay tuned and watch this space!
Huge thank you’s to all the ladies and customers at Mes Amis.

I’ve worked in hospitality for the last fifteen years and am passionate about feeding people! I have been cheffing for the last five years at the wonderful eatery, Mes Amis in Beckington, Somerset. Before that I worked in a gourmet chalet in the French Alps with my husband.
I have over ten years experience managing and running both kitchens and front of house and I have very high standards of customer service which I bring to the market stall.
I love the history of the area and the magic in the landscape around the South West and always enjoy finding new markets and beautiful places to set up my stall! I have a small charity budget so if you’re a local charity that needs a cake baked or a maybe a voucher as a raffle prize please get in touch and we can have a chat.

Marilyn’s food  also runs a French style ‘traiteur’ service whereby you can order a tagine for a dinner party or any event where you’d like something tasty and a bit different for you and friends or family to simply heat and serve at home.
These restaurant quality meals are also available in smaller portions for your freezer, just give me a call or send me an email and we can discuss your needs and delivery.
The tagines range from £4.95 per head to £10.95 per head.

"Marilyn did such an incredible job catering our wedding in France. She took our ideas and improved them massively, working within our budget and creating an absolute feast that looked fantastic and tasted better than we ever imagined - and it's all done with a smile that she manages to never lose. It was everything we wanted and more and people still talk about how amazing the food was."

"Every guest at our wedding remembers the amazing food. Marilyn was supportive with the ideas and made it simple and fun to plan. We happened upon a hint of the middle east and a colourful combination of flavours made the food pleasing to the eyes and tummy. A very professional and friendly service all round with lovely serving staff to boot."

"Marilyn's Banana, Date & Apricot Loaf is a firm favourite in our store, lord forbid that I should ever run out as I would have a small riot on my hands! Apart from an excellent product, Marilyn provides me with an excellent service, she always asks about stock levels and is very flexible regarding delivery and orders. Long may she continue!"
