The story so far...........
 

 

Back when it was trendy to eat pot noodles, and wear safety pins in your clothes, Ruth graduated from catering college, immediately continuing her training at the Dorchester hotel in London, and the then favourite restaurant of the Queen mum, The L'ecu de France in Jermyn Street, sadly, now gone.

After working in a variety of establishments, Ruth decided that she wanted to make her own mark in the hospitality industry and raised enough money to buy and convert a van into a mobile kitchen. Her existing contacts within the media and film industry enabled her to become quickly established as a first class film location caterer, and contracted to two major film studios in London. At the height of the 'music video' and commercial scene, Ruth had fed many a happy celebrity/music star. After four years of 19 hour days it was time for a change of scene, and styling for food photography became a calm and enjoyable pace, especially as Ruth was now pregnant with her first son.

Whilst living in Chertsey, her first home, she saw a gap in the market to the then 'relocation' culture of companies moving from London but near to the M25, and this is when the sandwich bars and corporate catering business were born. Fifteen years later and again looking for a new challenge, Ruth decided to tap into the rising popularity of the 'Street food' scene.

nvesting all her savings, Ruth bought and converted two 1950's vintage caravans into working catering units. The first in the country, and famously featured on the first series of 'Amazing spaces' with George Clarke. 

The vans are now just part of 'The Flying Ducks brand, and we have incorporated them into the wide and varied services we offer.

Ruth's love of creating beautiful food, amazing events and always looking for a unique experience for the client, The Flying Ducks continues to evolve and grow.
