About Us




Helen has run a very successful catering business in Matlock for many years, starting from scratch with a coffee van and expanding quickly into major events. Coming from a family who make their living from the food industry – her father, mother, brother and sister all work in the well-known family butchers and bake house – she has a wealth of experience from which to draw.
Enthusiastic, cheerful and extremely creative, Helen brings out the best in people and turns every event into an enjoyable and fun experience. Whilst her clients feel her professionalism is one of her greatest assets, we here believe it is her strength, capability and fantastic sense of humour that makes Helen so great to work with.


Natalie has worked alongside Helen’s Matlock based catering business for many years whilst simultaneously obtaining a degree. Bright, friendly and cheerful, she brings many organisational qualities to Zest that compliment Helen’s skills. Having worked on events in the international arena, Natalie brings experience of multi-cultural diplomacy with her and this, coupled with her on-the-nail organisational skills, makes her the girl you want batting for you!
Quick to laugh, highly capable and tremendously pragmatic, Natalie brings skills which make her
partnership with Helen a formidable one.


Zest have built up a very credible and successful reputation within the local area, including:

• Links to local businesses
• A good supplier database
• An impressive client portfolio
• Clients returning time after time

Our uniformed staff are efficient, friendly and cheerful, as we place great importance on providing
