EVENTS

Find my food at a whole host of fun events in London and beyond:

Feed your belly and soul - join me and my partner, Corrie, on one of our fabulous yoga and food retreats, or at one of our other regular wellness and food events in London - from supper club to yoga and essential oils workshops!

We can even put together a tailored food and wellness event for you! Whether it’s a hen or birthday party, a wedding care package, or a corporate event - we’ve got fun, food and feel-good vibes for any occasion.

You can also find me at Queen’s Park and Chiswick Farmer’s markets peddling baked goods everyone will love - including my locally famous psyllium bread, and the best sweet potato brownies and vegan carrot cake in town! (get in touch to find out about upcoming market days)

PRIVATE CHEF & CATERING

Vegetarian and vegan catering never tasted so good - and not a goat’s cheese and red onion tart in sight! Having spent years developing a range of awesome veggie and vegan dishes, I’m on a mission to change the face of plant-based food. I can cater your event with natural, whole and seasonal foods that will satisfy even the most dedicated carnivores!

I offer catering and food delivery services in the London area as well as private / retreat chef services across the UK and abroad. Your own dedicated chef to shop, prep, cook for you - no it’s not a trick! You really can have me come and literally cater to your every whim.

Whether you need a chef for your retreat, someone to help with everyday meals, dinner parties or brushing up on your own skills in the kitchen, I can come to you and make your vegetable dreams a reality.

Fad-free, inclusive eating -

whether you’re vegan, gluten free or eat anything and everything, I want to feed you natural food made with awesome ingredients

The word on the street

"Sal went above and beyond to create and serve spectacular food for our private event - the whole party was raving about her"

— Charlotte, Private catering client

"Salima’s macarons are the best in London"

— E&V, Corporate catering client

"Breadren catered my father's birthday party as I was too busy to cook and the food was much better than something I could have done. 

I didn't need to do anything on the day, it was presented beautifully, delilcious and there were ample leftovers!"

— Zoe, Private client

"What I love about Salima is that I have asked her to cater over 10 dinners of mine and each time it has been a different style.

Mediterranean to Arab, to Indian and African - I find she is able to offer an eclectic range of dishes that are delicious and affordable - I would thoroughly recommend her business"

— Charlotte, Corporate client

"The pastries and desserts are delicious, perfectly executed and beautifully presented. You can see different cultural influences resonate through her food. I love especially how Salima always puts her own twist on traditional recipes making them far more interesting and tasty! I can always depend on her to produce the highest quality of food!"."

— Ella, Private client

Meet your Breadren

We are at heart a family operation - a food fanatic, a yogi and a pair of pooches dedicated to making people’s lives happier through food, lifestyle and puppy cuddles.

I left a corporate job in 2011 to train at Leith’s School of Food and Wine and embark on new career. A long journey through restaurant, catering and production kitchens led me to start my own business, setting out to shun fads and diet crazes, and instead champion natural and nutritious food inspired by my own Indian/African heritage as well as the global influences that have inspired me growing up in London and traveling the world.

Corrie is a yoga, pilates and anatomy teacher as well as a student osteopath - we combine our passions whenever possible and run retreats and wellness events, and she also has the crucial role of chief taster!

Bille and Soba are the backbone of the business - our little dogs keep us grounded and sane, get me out of the kitchen into nature and give the best cuddles! Look out for them at one of our dog friendly retreats!
