Driven by quality, simplicity and seasonality.

Spook is a modern hospitality and catering company who aim to create unique connections through food and events. We cater for the world’s most prominent global brands and individuals and exist to inspire the discovery of natural, seasonal food through our events and experiences.

Spook has led the way for modern catering since the company was founded in 2013 by Emily Few Brown. Born and raised in farming communities in Hampshire, Emily grew up surrounded by nature which instilled in her a passion for where food came from.
Today the team comprises individuals with backgrounds in design, advertising, publishing, farming, luxury hospitality and photography. Each employee brings experience and eccentricity, but each is united by a shared passion for the Spook vision.

Our Ethos

Our ethos brings people together, and allows them to step out of the everyday world and indulge in life’s true luxuries. Our events and locations embrace nature and are wild, in every sense of the term – we support local producers and British farmers who have sustainability and biodiversity at the forefront of their processes.

Food & Drink

Freshly picked vegetables from the farm garden, wild fruits and herbs from the surrounding areas, truffles from the Wiltshire forests and fish caught that morning from the South Coast. Sourcing only the finest ingredients direct from the farmer, as well as carefully foraging little-known delicacies from the wild, our chefs create simple menus with elegant touches.

Meet the team

Our creative in-house team is the driving force behind all Spook experiences. We’re a team of diverse talents, interests and backgrounds. We love to bring fresh perspectives to the table, and help bring our client’s vision to life.

Joe spent his summers in the Scottish Highlands and has a deep connection with the region’s produce that is evident in his food. He loves nothing better than cooking over an open fire, but when that’s not possible he is happy sourcing and preparing the best possible ingredients and serving them with unique contemporary twists. Joe came to Spook from the innovative Scottish restaurant group Mac & Wild and now lives in South East London.

Head Chef

Emily started Spook as a chef to bring produce driven, high quality food and drink to the events industry with a warm and friendly service. Her knowledge and understanding of food with her keen eye for design means she ensures that everything we produce carries our distinctive style and flavour. She grew up amongst farming communities and is passionate about sourcing ingredients that are big on flavour but also good for producers and the planet.
