Lucy Gemmell Testimonial
“I have had the great pleasure of working with Mark Jankel and the Food Initiative for over two years now - Mark and his team produce some of the most exceptional food I have ever seen and eaten - the attention to detail to the presentation and the passion that goes into what they produce is outstanding - I am really enjoying watching this business blossom and grow into a serious contender in the events world in London and Europe.”

David Curtis Testimonial
“It was a real pleasure working with Mark and Lily on the Stranger Things 2 launch.
The food initiative is a great example of passion, creativity and quality coming together. Mark provided some incredible food recommendations inspired by Stranger Things and he worked tirelessly to execute them to the highest possible standard - the food looked great, tasted amazing and it was all made from top quality - locally sourced - ingredients. Lily handled the logistics side of things and ensured everything was delivered seamlessly.
We did about 6 events across the UK in the space of a week and the team were smiling right up until the job was finished. I will definitely be using them again!”

“I have worked with Mark Jankel for many years with both Street Kitchen and now with The Food Initiative. I have recently returned from France where we worked together on a three day festival for a 50th Birthday.
An absolute joy to work with, his creativity and attention to detail are second to none and the food was delicious, sourcing all ingredients from local suppliers throughout the region. I have never worked with a chef and his team where not one raised voice was heard over six days in a field kitchen in the Gers in 35 degree heat!”

“Sabrina and I wanted to pass on a massive thank you to you both for everything you have done for us in the run up to the wedding. Your help and support was crucial to the wedding going so well and we have had nothing but compliments from all of our guests, who absolutely loved the food and the layout. None of our guests had ever experienced anything like it and they can’t stop talking about it!
Mark you absolutely nailed the Polish late food! Even my father-in-law was impressed, and that’s saying something!
I can’t put into words how happy we are. Thank you both again from the bottom of my heart.”

“I felt completely at ease and safe in your hands. You made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. It was a pleasure to host with you. The food was so delicious and varied, completely exceeding my expectations for food cooked at home. The best restaurant quality. I will definitely be calling you again. Thank you!!”

“From start to finish it was a pleasure working with Lily and the team. The menu exceeded all our expectations and due to the high demand for the incredible pies, the team were able to respond quickly and deliver additional servings on site.
Across the three days of the conference the whole FI team acted professionally and proactively responding to the changing schedule and demands.
Can’t wait to work with you guys again!”
