what they say about us
SFTN / compact pictures ltd, Feb 2020
We recently hired Chick and Pea for film shoot catering and they were brilliant. Over 6 days we had a selection of hot breakfast rolls and a range of vegan/meat lunches that were exciting, delicious and filling. A crew favourite was the cauliflower curry! It was great having these fresh and nutritious meals delivered to our location base. Jeremy also provided tea, coffee, milk and milk alternatives which were much appreciated. Can’t thank the brilliant Chick and Pea highly enough for keeping our crew so well fed!
J Birthday Party, Wee Red Bar, Edinbirurgh, Jan 2020
Just wanted to drop you a quick message to thank you and your team for everything on Saturday night.
The kebabs were amazing; more than one person said they were the best they'd ever tasted! And they seemed to be perfect dancing food - who knew..?
The van outside worked really well and your team were absolutely lovely.
H+M Christmas Party, Edinburgh, Dec 2019
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and for providing some great food four our event. We had so many colleagues say the they loved the food, especially the halloumi fries!
Wedding, Morayshire, Sep 2019
We used Chick+Pea and their sister company Kebabbar to cater our wedding in September 2019 and I could not of been more chuffed with them. Jeremy was amazing throughout the whole process; really accommodating, flexible, full of ideas, communicative, timely… there’s not enough great words to describe him! He was just spot on. And the food. The two trucks managed to serve our 200-guests with ease. Initially I was a bit nervous about what the older generation might think of going up to collect their dinner from these cute wee vans, but there was no need. Everybody loved it! The food was just fantastic. And folk loved that it was something different. Highly recommend!!
Wedding, Perthshire, Jul 2019
Guys. A huge thank you for looking after us so well. The food and service were exceptional. The added bonus of a master of ceremonies was much appreciated!!
Private Birthday Party, Edinburgh, Jul 2019
I had Chick+Pea for my 40th Birthday bash at my home and they MADE the whole party! I got so many compliments about the food. The van looked great parked on my drive too! Love the way a member of staff walked around my guests with plates of canapes but that it was informal too and guests could visit the van for a plate of food, festival style. Communication with the company was good and the whole thing was easy. Get these guys in for your party, you won't regret it.
I+A Wedding, Glasgow, Jun 2019
Chick+Pea catered our wedding this summer. Jeremy created a delicious menu which met our very specific requirements (fully vegetarian, with gluten-free and vegan options), and spoke to our 'food heritage', with Mediterranean, middle-eastern, and northern-English influences. His team were fantastic - friendly and efficient, and he also brought along the most amazing 'master of ceremonies' to help the day run smoothly. Thank you so much Chick+Pea, you were brilliant!
Cormiston Farm Wedding, John + Annette, May 2019
Weddings have this reputation of being quite stressful things to organise. Annette and I did not find this. We loved the planning and really enjoyed it because we managed to find people who just got what we were going for and collaborated so well to create the day we were looking for.
And Jeremy from Chick and Pea was the best example of this. We went to the George Square food festival to get some ideas for wedding catering knowing we liked the idea of food trucks at the wedding. When we got to the Chick+Pea van, Jeremy immediately took half an hour out of his time to sit down with us and chat through what we were aiming for and what he could do for us and it was one of those things where he knew exactly what we were looking for and the vibe we wanted to create at the wedding. But then turned it from a loose concept to reality and just knew exactly how to make it the perfect way to cater for our wedding.
We really appreciated being able to work with Jeremy to build a great menu and made the planning of such a key part of the wedding a real joy instead of a burden.
On the day everyone enjoyed the food truck style so much, the food was so tasty, the service from Jeremy and his team was brilliant.
The food that Chick and Pea served was full of flavour - the DIY Eton mess was so fun - the service was so quick - we got the barn full of 120 people fed in no time. The food truck style obviously means there is a bit of staggering in people eating but this actually helped to create the relaxed and fun atmosphere we were so hoping for.
A massive thank you Jeremy - it was really great working with and you really went the extra mile to help us put on a great wedding meal.
We can not recommend you enough - we really hope more people choose a Chick + Pea wedding because it makes the meal so fun and tasty. For anyone that thinks the food at a wedding is a key part of the day - go for Chick + Pea!
Crear Wedding, May 2019
Our experience with Chick + Pea was a wonderful combination of professional and personable. Despite battling an 8hr time difference, Jeremy and his team made everything very straight forward when arranging catering at our wedding. Even catering for different dietary requirements (some very specific ones) was no bother. And the food? Oh my word, the food! Definitely the highlight of our wedding weekend for many of our guests (and possibly the bride too). Small wonder this little catering outfit is so popular wherever it pops up. Great staff, great flavours, great service and great big smiles all round.
Not only would I happily hire Chick + Pea again for another event, but I would also highly encourage anyone even remotely considering it to get in touch with them now. You won't regret it!
PR Client, Rabbie's Tours Birthday Party, Edinburgh, Nov 2018
Just wanted to send a huge thanks for last week – both vans went down great with the guests and they looked perfect on site.
Hopefully we’ll be able to work with you again in the future.
V+D, Wedding, Yorkshire, September 2018
I just wanted to pop a quick note to say thank you to you and your team for a wonderful menu on Saturday. We had so many compliments on the food throughout the whole day. Safe to say the halloumi and the cheesy chips went down extremely well!! And the guests absolutely loved smashing the meringue up, there were a few confused faces at first but everyone got stuck in! Not easy feeding that many people from a small little set up but you did a fantastic job. And so did the waitressing staff, so please pass on our thanks to them as well. I'm so glad we choose you to feed our wedding guests!
K+J Wedding, Archerfield Walled Garden, June 2018
Had the guys from Chick + Pea at our wedding recently. Absolutely outstanding especially the halloumi fries!
Group Stag + Hen Do, Cumbria, March 2018
Thank you for coming and feeding us in such freezing conditions. All the food went down a storm, every bit was eaten before the day was out. Everyone loved the halloumi fries and several people said the falafels where the best. We are very happy with the whole thing.
Post Wedding Celebration, Glasgow, March 2018
Thank you for being a part of our big day! There were so many compliments about your food.
21st Birthday Party, East Neuk Fife, June 2017
My daughter wanted street food for her 21st birthday and so we did a bit of research and we were delighted to find Chick+Pea who were fantastic from start to finish. A great taster menu to help us choose our final menu and then a professional, friendly service continued throughout the whole process. I am still amazed at how they managed to provide us with endless delicious food all evening from their little blue Citroen 'Albert' and then brunch the following morning! Thank you for truly amazing food, excellent service and always a smile.
PR Client, Monki Store Launch @ Buchanan Galleries, Glasgow, March 2017
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the Monki Glasgow project.
Monki absolutely loved the van and the food! It was exactly what they envisioned and feedback from the footfall was nothing but positive.
If we are back in Glasgow again we will be sure to give you a call! ☺
PR Client, Robertsons Homes, Random Acts of Kindness Promo, December 2017
We needed flexibility and personality as much as catering when we booked Chick +Pea for a community engagement campaign for housebuilder Robertson Homes. The brief was to deliver “Random Acts of Kindness”; giving away seasonal treats and hot drinks at key locations, while taking pictures suitable for social media. This was pretty far from the usual catering brief but went down a storm, due in large part to the patience and sense of fun brought by Jeremy and his team. They even went the extra mile and delivered leftovers to a local foodbank.
Oliver Chapman Architect Birthday Celebration, Trinity Church, Edinburgh, November 2017
Chick + Pea provided a great service with helpful advice planning the event suggesting an enticing menu and ways to enliven the look and sound of the event. They worked in a tricky venue on a cold dark November evening and remained positive and customer focussed throughout.
M+A Wedding, Newtongrange Mining Museum, Edinburgh, October 2016
Chick + Pea were caterers at our wedding reception, which took the form of a food truck festival. We met with them beforehand to see if they would be interested and were very pleased to find that they were enthusiastic to give it a go. We then had a great back and forth over the menu, with them allowing us to tailor things for our individual tastes. We decided on a pomegranate molasses chicken with bulgar wheat and courgette fritters with harissa yoghurt, which were incredible! They were even able to adapt their fritters for our vegan guests. I would fully recommend Chick + Pea for their delicious food, and friendly professionalism.
We have traded at public events such as TRNSMT, Bestival, Electric Fields, The Big Feed, The Pitt, Balgove Night Market.
We have provided location catering for Primark, Barbour, H+M, Scabal, My Kitchen Rules (2017)
