Mapperton’s catering, led by local chef Joanna Fowler, provides a range of delectable and locally-sourced food worthy of Dorset’s finest country house wedding venue.

Joanna’s style of cooking is inspired from all over the globe but is best described as British Modern. She takes great pride in creating menus that incorporate your ideas and has inventive menus for all budgets. All the food is homemade, from medlar jelly and sorbets to hand cut pomes-frites and beautiful desserts.

Joanna can provide hot and cold canapés, as well as sumptuous three to five course meals, tailored to your tastes, with inspiration from France, Italy and the Far East.  From paella to curries to tagine, we can also provide a full range of international cuisine.

Joanna prides herself on producing beautifully presented food served with care and efficiency. Through meetings and tastings she can devise a tailor-made wedding breakfast and timeline for your day so that you can be assured that every detail is taken care of.

“I grew up on a farm and still farm part-time today. This has given me a passion for supporting British farmers and local quality produce, and consequently I source my ingredients from great local suppliers such as Rawles Butcher, Samways Fishmonger, the Washingpool Farm Shop and Chesil Smokery.”
