life’s a feast is passionate about food and cooking, and is of the belief that the ultimate compliment you can pay anyone is to prepare them a meal from the heart. It is our experience that many people associate cooking and entertaining with stress, hard work and very little reward. But it doesn’t have to be that way – we believe that preparing a meal and having guests should be a joy, not a chore. In line with this philosophy, our recipes and menus have been developed with the following in mind:

1. High “wow” factor, low effort. 
2. Use of quality ingredients, and seasonal and local wherever possible.
3. Recipes are all designed to be easy to follow and prepare, so you will easily be able to recreate them at home.
