Tom and Yvonne Fletcher founded Tourelle Cuisine in 1992. Tom began his career working with chef and award-winning food writer, Sybil Kapoor.In 1984, Tom became head chef at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and was responsible for exhibition launch parties and banqueting for eminent guests such as Princess Michael of Kent and Sir Roy Strong. Throughout the latter part of the 1980s, both Tom and Yvonne ran kitchens for prestigious companies like Saatchi & Saatchi and provided hospitality for their equally prestigious guests, such as Richard Branson. Clients from that time included UBS, Saudi Bank International, Savills and Consolidated Goldfields.
That's their background. Since joining forces as Tourelle Cuisine, they have served a diverse range of clients, encompassing corporate hospitality, TV location work, in-house catering, and their speciality, marquee weddings.
For nearly two decades, they have worked in partnership with a well-respected Surrey-based marquee company to cater for prestigious events and weddings in stunning locations, including many National Trust country house venues such as Ham House in Richmond and The Vyne in Hampshire. They have been trusted time and again to provide first-class hospitality to countless high profile clients and guests, including Prince Charles at Ham House, King of Norway at Dunster Castle in Somerset and private dinners at Windsor Castle.
Tourelle Cuisine has worked extensively throughout Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire, and has earned an excellent reputation for providing truly exceptional value for outstanding cuisine and impeccable service.
