about us wedding catering

After having opened several reputed restaurants across France and working alongside well known chefs; we more recently have assisted a number of local chateaux and manor houses by helping them develop them as special wedding venues. This has now evolved into us organising our own receptions, weddings and events in co-operation with these local venues.

Currently we are located at the beautiful Château de Lerse in the Charente, near the Dordogne border, south west France, where we work with our trusted professional partners with whom we have worked for a number of years.

We work with French and International clients, speaking both French and English, which gives us the opportunity to push the boundaries when it comes to the cross-fertilisation of French and International cuisines.
With our cooking skills, organisational experience and love for travel we have now added ‘cuisine consultant’ to our list of activities.

Absolutely incredible

Joss and his team were absolutely incredible over our wedding weekend. My fiancé is Serbian so we wanted to incorporate some traditional Serbian cuisine and decided to host a hog roast the evening before our wedding. The roast and side dishes Joss prepared were absolutely perfect, it was the perfect kick off to our wedding weekend. Joss and his team returned the following morning on our wedding day and everything was once again exactly as we hoped. Joss’ staff was so attentive to our guests and every serving of food from the canapes during our cocktail hour to the appetizers, entrees and dessert at dinner were all so delicious. We had so many guests come up to us and let us know how wonderful their meal was. Thank you so much Joss for making our wedding weekend everything we dreamed it would be! We are so thankful!

Private Chef Required

A huge thank you for last night.  My family and I throughly enjoyed the evening, and the food was absolutely delicious. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. It really made my fathers 70th birthday incredibly special.

Many many thanks


Great food and wedding caterer

We had Joss (owner and chef of  Traiteur Events) cater for our wedding at Saint Privat des Pres and the food was excellent. His canapés are amazing and all of his food is really excellent.

We even had him do the catering for a BBQ at the wedding venue for our guests the next day and it was the best BBQ food we have had – real gourmet French BBQ – not your usual burgers etc.
All Authentically French and wonderful stuff. Would highly recommend Joss for wedding catering and he is a real pleasure to work with – a great guy and always eager to please.

Fabulous Wedding Caterer

We used this restaurant to cater for our wedding in Chateau De Lacoste this summer and the food and hospitality were incredible. We had a really fun and very delicious tasting session in the restaurant in March where we got to choose the food we were going to eat on the day itself.

All our guests absolutely loved the canapés and food (the Foie gras crème Brule was a big talking point). The head waiter was so wonderful and really made sure my husband and I had what we needed to ensure we had an amazing day!

If you are thinking of getting married in the Dordogne area and looking for an amazing wedding caterer – look no further than this!

Incredible wedding banquet

Traiteu Events catered for our wedding in June 2015. We had a incredible experience in his restaurant for our wedding tasting. A really special location that complimented his exquisite food. No request was too much and he was happy to tailor make any requests we had.

On the wedding day he was a pleasure to have including his wonderful team. We had the most amazing canapés which included incredible scallops and prawns on a hot plancher. Joss created the most beautiful, unique and most importantly delicious sharing plates of starters and desserts.

The main course of individual steaks and huge baked rounds of dauphinoise potatoes and late night crepes were cooked to perfection. Food and wine at our wedding was very important and Joss provided the most amazing food we could wish for. Our wedding guests to this day still compliment us on the food.

A huge thank you to Joss and his team. Joss catered for a friends wedding the year before and is catering for a friend in August. We can’t wait!

A truly memorable weekend!

We have just celebrated our daughter’s wedding and had the extremely good fortune to have Joss and his exceptional team from Traiteur Events catering for us, not only for the wedding day but also a garden party the following day. The quality of the food and service on both days was simply out of this world. Nothing was too difficult for Joss including catering for special dietary requirements! From start to finish it was a pleasure dealing with Joss and his team.
For anyone contemplating a wedding or other special occasion, I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the team!


Wedding Weekend – Simply Amazing

Joss and his team did the catering four our wedding weekend in September, both on the day itself and on the Sunday for a more relaxed BBQ.
I must start by saying that the experience all started phenomenally when we went to do the initial tasting back in April. On a cold rainy day we were invited to the restaurant to select our wedding breakfast and arriving to a roaring log fire, a friendly Joss, and a beautiful restaurant, we knew straight away that we had chosen wisely and would be well looked after. EVERYTHING we tasted on this day was beautiful and we had such a hard time making the final cut, we wanted it all.
But choose we did and in September when the wedding arrived our canapés and meal surpassed all of our expectations and our guests too. Everyone has since raved about our wedding food, especially the scallops 🙂 and we feel so so happy that it met all of our expectations and lived up to our memories from earlier in the year. The dessert platter was incredible, I’m only sad that I only managed one from this on the actual evening.
On Sunday we also had the most wonderful BBQ provided – again I can fault nothing! It was all wonderful.
Joss is just lovely and really went out of his way to ensure everything was perfect – a lovely person to have around on such a special day! Food is so important at a wedding and I can promise you that if you go with this wonderful person and place you would not be disappointed.
If you are not planning a wedding and merely want a fantastic meal in wonderful surroundings then visit this restaurant now!
