BIG PANS. BIG HEARTS.

About the Big Pan Theory

Hello and welcome to “The Big Pan Theory”!

My name is Pete, I cater our freshly cooked delicious food for up to 250 people in Somerset & Devon area. I cook variety of food with my own recipe by using 100cm diameter “Big Pans” in front of you and your guests.

Our Story

With some of my family moving to Spain many years ago, I fell in love with Spanish tapas when visiting, especially with paella. So, I started cooking for friends and family when back home at home parties, and the crowds got bigger and bigger. Some friends started asking if I could cook at their events and the wedding. With my passion towards cooking, I put myself through cookery classes, being trained by head chefs at Ashburton cookery school while I was working as a kitchen appliance fitter. Having a wife come from other side of the world also gave me opportunities to see and taste the food which I never imagined there exist, and this experience influenced my creation of own mixed spices and sauces.

I and my wife Seiko started small, catering at private events serving just paella to begin with. Now, with our lovely skilled staff we cater for up to 250 guests at the events and at the wedding with our various own menus. We also love exploring the South West country to find “good” “delicious” food. Our locally sourced meat and vegetables were found during those good food hunting exploration. We love “food” and this is our passion to deliver joyful food to your table. My wife Seiko, being Japanese gives huge attention to details so we make sure our dishes are as pleasing to the eye as to the taste.
