All About Us
Thomas The Chef & Co Owner
My interest in food started at the age of thirteen, I followed Jamie Oliver and his programmes on tv, at the age of fourteen I volunteered at Jamie Olivers ministry of food in Rotherham. I enjoyed my time there, so much so that I continued to volunteer throughout my college years. During my four years at Doncaster college I won various competitons one of them being The Unilever and Outward Bound Trust Award for Young Apprentice of the Year at the age of 16
I then went onto working in hotels and restaurants, catering for large volume events,
al a carte restaurants and weddings.
I prefer to cook using fresh ingredients, I believe this is what cooking is. I spend a lot of time developing and sourcing the right ingredients for our menus, only the best will do! This is what makes our catering outlet unique.

Rachel The Events Coordinator &
My experience is customer focused, I have been a Customer Service Manager for an online company for over ten years. Whilst on Maternity leave in 2015 with my first child my brother had a brilliant idea, lets buy a converted American School Bus! Me knowing what a great chef my brother was I agreed. I was heavily pregnant at our first two events, it was very challenging but fun. Its been many years since I was in the catering business, I worked in the food mall in Meadowhall when I was young as a head commi waitress. My role is to research and book events/festivals, market our business and ensure all licenses/certificates and paperwork are upto date. Although I am prodomantley office based you will see me at the events assisting Thomas with the running of the business.
We Purchased the bus in 2015, It was imported into the UK in 2011 from Delaware, USA where it was used as a service bus for 10 years. Since being in the UK it has been transformed into a very well equipped kitchen.
