We are also delighted to announce that our No Added Sugar variety has received the Highly Commended award in the Great British Food Awards under the Healthy Boost category. This fantastic marinade was judged by healthy eating bloggers Kate Allinson & Kay Featherson of Pinch of Nom with the following comments ...


"This zingy marinade had a fantastic blend of spices that lent itself to chicken, fish, prawns and vegetables. It was so versatile and you really don't miss the sugar."


If you're interested in booking Crave to cater for your function, take a look at our Outside Catering page on which you can find a list of the delicious range of food we can provide.  


Whatever your requirement, we are happy to help.  We are often asked by customers to work out a menu for their occasion with the total amount they would like to spend. We can then swap and change this menu until you’re completely happy, or you can let us know what  amount per-person you would like to pay and we will put together a selection of menus for that amount.  Alternatively, you can choose what you want from the list and we will let you know the price per head … whichever way is easiest and helpful for you.  All of our dishes are served from matching containers and servers with table covering, napkins and cutlery to complement.


Although Crave is based in Preston, we cover all surrounding areas and for your peace of mind, Crave has been awarded the highest rating for food hygiene in an inspection by Public Protection Services … something else we are very proud of.
