Headed up by Tania Dixon, 30, her love of good food, as well as hard work and determination, has seen the business transform from a kitchen within a barn at her parents’ Perthshire home to new 1,000 sq. ft. premises in Edinburgh’s Leith district, investing in two new chefs in the process.
Ginger Snap’s approach to catering has been highly innovative. Establishing itself as a creative caterer, with a flexible approach to every event, this has ensured a high level of repeat business from an impressive client list that stretches the length and breadth of Scotland, including Brewin Dolphin, Bonham’s, Merrill Lynch, Petroleum Experts and Louis Vuitton.
Apart from a healthy booking of corporate contracts, which can involve catering for up to 400 people, Ginger Snap also provides a service for more intimate occasions. These include weddings, family celebrations and private dinner parties, where the same locally sourced, freshly prepared and imaginatively executed cuisine the company is renowned for, is also on the menu.
Tania Dixon, managing director of Ginger Snap, says: “I’ve been steadily building the business over the last six years, following the humble beginnings of Ginger Snap from my parents’ kitchen. Having secured a strong client base, combined with consistent demand for our service, this year seemed the right time to make the move and expand into new premises.
“Event catering is pretty demanding in terms of the hours and pace. However, I love what I do and I’m in the fortunate position to have a tight team around me who feel exactly the same - committed and passionate about great food and also providing a first class customer service. Scotland offers a wonderful larder and along with our creative flair seems to have produced a winning formula.”
