About me…My name is Melissa Rees. Originally from Suffolk, I met my husband Jeremy while living in Brixton. We moved to Shropshire in 1997 and have 3 daughters and a young son. Of course I love to cook but I wouldn’t be happy to be without writing, planting and reading.
"Hi Melissa, My friends and I want to thank you so much for your wonderful meal. We all thoroughly enjoyed your splendid food and were so impressed by how you managed it all so wonderfully and unobtrusively. It was also so kind of you to help our stranded friend while cooking for 25 simultaneously!! We couldn’t recommend you highly enough; a business like yours deserves to succeed. We had high expectations and you didn’t disappoint. Warm regards June"
