"Kevin has catered a number of parties for us at The Real Olive Co. The food is always amazing, exciting and interesting. Dishes are prepared with love and skill using well sourced ingredients. From initial contact to leaving the parties Kevin and his team were very professional​ and a pleasure to deal with. The presentation was always beautiful and unusual whether buffet or seated. The team included waiting staff who greeted guests, served drinks and made everyone​ feel well cared for. I look forward to working with Forage & Find again."
Jenny-Rose Clarke, The Real Olive Company, English Market, Cork


"Forage & Find catered our wedding reception. From the professional service to our customized menu, every part of the process was made easy, enjoyable and memorable - not to mention delicious!"
Oisin & Susan Nyhan – Wedding Clients


"Kevin and his people catered a two-day, 22 person event for us last year - the guests were mostly Parisian, so no strangers to good food. To put it mildly, they were blown away: really great local ingredients (some foraged), unexpected combinations of flavours that all worked big-time, great presentation, and service that was both professional and charming."

"A highlight was the moment the first French guest took a bite of the croissants - "Well" he said "wish I could get these at home." Job done....."
Tim O'Kennedy, TenCents Consulting

It couldn't have been more enjoyable. All of the staff loved it. Kevin has a wealth of knowledge that blew us away... We all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and I would highly recommend spending some time in this man’s company, you'll be amazed at what you will learn! Thanks Kevin

Thanks Kev for such a great day out and the iced Elderflower Cordial went down a treat on such a sunny day! Definitely on the list for Top Things to do in Cork! Our kids along with the other children and adults soaked up all the info. Everyone had a great time picking and tasting numerous wild plants and herbs.
