Hi my name is Chris! Welcome and thanks for visiting my little corner of the web!
Well, it's finally happening.
No more "what ifs!". No more "maybe next year". After 10+ years doing what I thought I should be doing, what I thought was a 'proper' job, I am doing what I was born to do. Feed people!
After a number of years in the financial sector and a spell running my own company, it was time to change. I have worn a number of hats since I became an 'adult' but the one I loved most was, and if I am being truthful, always has been - catering! There is no better feeling than the satisfaction of watching and listening to the reaction of people eating your food.
I wasn't born with bags of creativity, I wasn't born with many bags at all if i'm honest. However, I was blessed with a good work ethic and a will to feed and entertain people!
I also have a supportive family around me, friends that believe in me - so now its time for me
and my food to shine!
The idea of a mobile deli comes from my memories of staying at my grandparents remote croft in the highlands of Scotland. I knew what day the grocery van was due, I would spend the morning listening for the distant growl of the engine as it made its way down the long, bumpy cart track to the house.
I was always out first, just as the van reversed onto the pebble driveway. Excited that I would be getting my Tunnocks Snowball,my treat for helping with the chores.
There was 3 'shops' that would visit. A Grocer, Fishmonger and a Butcher, each with its own little gem, that had me waiting for it to stop and open its doors.
If I can help create a memory like this for a least one person, I have succeded.
Hope you come to enjoy 'The Pantry' as much as I enjoyed my Snowball!
