D’lights event catering was created by Dean Light who is a professional chef with more that 24 years in the industry. I started off my career at the Hilton on Park Lane London where this gave me a real insight in to what the catering industry is all about. I found out very early on that I had huge passion for creating distinct and colourful dishes that I always seem to hit the fine line of flavour balance and the togetherness of each dish, this is very unique as this also tests the customers pallet to the full.
Over my career it has spanned out to some of London’s most prestigious and exclusive establishments. After being brought up in some of
London’s most toughest and sort after kitchens my repertoire had grown immensely and so I went on to head up my own kitchens and brigades until one day I was approached to be a personal chef to some of the most high profile music bands and celebrities. I took a quick decision and took up this offer where I went on to meet and cook for some extraordinary people, ie Oasis, Phil Collins, Pet shop boys, Kylie Minogue, Andy Williams (his very last tour), Shakira, Spice girls and many more to name. I was then approached to go and run a large and exclusive events company where this really got my repertoire working as every day an event was different and I love the fact of working with potential clients in designing their bespoke menu for their event.
