⭐️ Tell us a bit about you and your business?

Hi I’m Danielle I own Picky Bits which is an event catering business based in Epsom upping the finger food game. We provide show stopping spreads for your special occasion. To be honest it started by accident (a lovely story if you ever have time!) but I believe I’ve finally found my calling and I absolutely love it.

The business operates from the kitchen at The Epsom Club which has been running for over 100 years.

⭐️ What’s changed for your business since the outbreak of Covid-19?

As my business relies on people getting together to share food I had to adapt quickly! At first I was worried about how far to restructure but now I send delicious & visually pleasing platters all around the area for your isolation celebrations!

I’ve also been hosting Epsom’s very own Cater for our Carers campaign which is a collaboration of local food businesses feeding the hospital using community donations, it really has been lovely providing for our local NHS staff.

⭐️ What are you looking forward to when lock down is fully lifted?

Providing catering a little more outside the box. Literally!
Family BBQs and drinks with friends. I was never much a hugger before this but that may be about to change!

⭐️ Lastly what’s your positive message to help others through this?

Focus on the good and the good gets better. I truly believe this has been an awakening for us all and the community will be a stronger place once we are through this. A focus on supporting local businesses should carry on.

Find out more about Picky Bits and their delicious platters (sweet and savoury) that can be delivered to your door in the Epsom and surrounding areas here .

They really are yummy!
