Welcome to ENVIE

Lizzie & Raphaël's Sustainable & Creative Catering Company

About Us

Wonderful food in any location.

Hello!

Combining classic French Cuisine with Belgian creativity, 3 Rosettes and a passion for local produce and sustainable cooking, we create and deliver bespoke menus to match your every setting, occasion and lifestyle diet.

As much as possible, we use seasonal, locally grown produce (even from our own allotment) as well as locally, responsibly sourced fish and meat. We strongly believe in smaller, regenerative eco-agriculture, less food waste and hence a more sustainable way of cooking.

Good food, good health and good business.

Call us today to discuss your requirements and no-obligation quote!

Looking forward, Lizzie & Raphaël

ENVIE 

ENVIE in French has two meanings: être en vie and avoir envie de 

Avoir envie de means "to want to do something, to fancy, to feel like doing something" whereas être en vie means "to be alive".

 

 

This is what we wish to convey in our food and our lives - a feeling of really fancying something,  doing something and above all, to feel alive, to experience, to travel through taste.

Let us do the cooking while you host.

We strongly believe that within cooking there is an incredible opportunity to impact the creation of sustainable food systems for years to come. Safe, nutritious food from a fertile soil, accessible to everyone, regardless of economic status. Therefore, we made the commitment to work with sustainable growers and producers in our local area. We are proud to use their produce when it is seasonably available and craft our dishes accordingly. 

Fine dining or good old comfort food, adventurous canapes or multicultural street food, from romantic dinner for two and family gatherings to formal occasions, we can take the cooking out of your hands so you can enjoy your company to the fullest. Depending on your needs and requests, we will perfectly tailor our menu to your preference and deliver on the day with high quality food, in style and with attentive service. 

Get in touch with us and we will make your next event more relaxing and memorable than ever.

When we can all travel freely again, we'll be organising a Food & Culture Discovery Trip to France or Belgium - Contact us for more information or to register interest!

Flavour comes from patience and nurturing. Therefore, allow a two-day-notice if you'd like freshly baked croissants, patisserie, sourdough bread, focaccia and baguettes, for our starter to wake up and dough to undergo our traditional cold, slow proof. 

We develop bespoke cakes for all diets and events, creating them to fit the character of the person your cake is intended for. 

We deliver afternoon teas (with or without fizz) as well as complete tart, entremets and cake banquets for receptions.

"Could not recommend Lizzie and Raphael enough. The food they create is exquisite.

They turn my house into a top restaurant whenever they come to cook. Not only that, but they always have an open mind and attitude towards making sure what they produce matches my tastes, dietary requirements (celiac) and mood for the evening.

They are highly professional and I never feel like they are interfering on our evening by being there.

 

The different cuisines they have prepared and cooked for us have been such a variety of different, innovative tastes and dishes which have only ever been maybe, matched before when I have visited high-end, Michelin star restaurants."

Raph and Lizzie catered my surprise birthday party. The menu was designed with my husband’s input and captured my favourite food perfectly. The food itself was sublime. Out of this world. Phenomenal! It might seem like I am trying to use every adjective under the sun to describe the food but really nothing comes close to conveying how beautiful it all was. From the presentation to the taste, Raph and Lizzie are masters of their art. The dishes were up there, if not beyond, food we have tasted in Michelin star restaurants. It was perfect. The wine pairings were also spot on. 

Raph and Lizzie take beautiful fresh ingredients and turn them into the most special dishes you have tasted. To top it off they are the loveliest people as well! I would not hesitate to recommend their private catering and cannot wait until we are able to experience it again!

Just booked 2 consecutive evenings for our holiday place in Topsham. A warm welcome  back from Raphael and Lizzie. They created a lovely relaxed ambience, only surpassed by the extraordinary quality of the food. We sampled the scallops, duck and salmon - impossible to say which was our favourite. Mouth watering. Also had snails and a Caribbean-style dessert, which were also delicious. Wine choice and quality excellent, with True Normand Calvados to finish. Already booked them TWICE in September, when we come back.

Having travelled through France extensively, and in Brittany in particular, you wont find better cuisine than theirs. Stunning. We wish Raphael & Lizzie continued success. Their skill and hard work deserves every plaudit. Merci beaucoup, à bientôt!
