“People who love to eat are always the best people”Julia Child
Anita-Clare Field has been passionate about food since she could balance on a stool and watch her mother create dishes from around the world. Formerly a Magazine Publisher, Anita-Clare decided to make cooking her career nearly 10 years ago as she recovered from a bad accident.
She launched her tiny Bistro in the back of her re-modelled Citroen HY Van in 2014 and after a hugely successful run A-C and her family relocated 6 years ago to Devon opening the Multi-Award Winning La Petite Bouchée, a 24 cover brasserie in North Devon. With its roots firmly in French cuisine and specialising in fish and seafood , she cooks both à la carte restaurant and bistro classics.
Anita-Clare has built a reputation here in Devon and is regularly asked to cook at events and privately for customers. All the ingredients sourced are either local ( 5-10km radius*) or homegrown and everything is cooked from Scratch.
You may have seen her on Channel 4’s Hidden Restaurants with Michel Roux Jnr showing Freddie Bird around La Petite Bouchée and cooking for him. Anita-Clare sits on several food judging panels including Taste Of The West.
Anita-Clare is professional, personable, engaging and energetic. Her cooking style ranges from rustic to carefully curated high-end tasting menus, she loves making flavours sing. She is motivated by seeing customers enjoying their food and inspired by the incredibly bountiful larder Devon has to offer. She has a fabulous network of suppliers and a highly experienced professional team. Anita-Clare is now focussing on the Private Chef and Events side of her business and information on how you can hire her to cook for you can be found on the website
