What we do

We did our first bespoke picnic for a friend’s wedding reception which took place in a gorgeous London park many years ago.  The combination of an eclectic bunch of people coming together in a unique location to enjoy a very special occasion & the personalised feast we created for them, was an instant joy and is something we have loved to do ever since. We are now listed caterers at the Weald & Downland museum’s Crawley Hall – an ideal picnic spot!

As well as picnics we also cater for wedding lunches, sharing table feasts, canapés and dinner parties. We provide film shoot and location catering for film agencies and production companies and crew catering for festivals including Glastonbury. We are also exclusive caterers at Worthing Sailing Club where we can be found every Sunday serving breakfasts, brunch and lunch to hungry sailors throughout the sailing season. We continue our lockdown inspired Afternoon Tea delivery service which has been a big hit and now provide vintage plate and tiered cake stand hire too.

About us

Love & Rocket embodies the long-term partnership of Jonathan & Sacha.  Since meeting in a popular Mayfair brasserie, we have seldom been away from catering.

After training in France, Chef Jonathan headed up many a busy kitchen for restaurants & event companies in London & the South East, and also taught  at West Herts. College in Watford. Jonathan has always been motivated by authenticity, attention to detail, and just being a stickler for doing things properly.  There are no shortcuts for this chef!

Likewise, Front of House Manager Sacha has spent years in busy restaurants & event spaces in London, as well as working in social care with vulnerable adults.  She is passionate about the concept of service as a way of life, recognising that everyone deserves individual care & attention, and she is a stickler for ensuring that everything is done to support this in a smooth & beautiful fashion.

Our philosophy

Having moved to the Sussex seaside in a conscious decision to slow down, we have in every sense joined the slow & sustainable food movement.  We grow most herbs & edible flowers on our allotment, compost all fruit & veg peelings, and seek out local suppliers & producers.  Priorities are to minimise waste, travel and meat consumption.  We like to provide more inclusive menus, that can cater to everyone’s dietary needs, but are also plant-based in such a way that no one notices because they are so delicious.

We love to devote our combined expertise to working one-to-one with our customers, either for a company fun day, a child’s birthday, or any celebration or get-together which we know will be truly one-of-a kind.
