Matt and Melissa
Our partnership works extremely well considering we are husband and wife and work in such a hot and confined space. Melissa has a customer service and wedding service background and takes great pride and enjoyment out of giving every customer a Gourmazin welcome. Matt is currently still serving in the RAF as a chef and is due to finish his career in Feb 2018 after 22 years’ service. Using his 25 year experience in the catering world he takes classic dishes and puts a Gourmazin twist on them.
In 2013 Matt & Melissa were living in the south of Holland and when on our travels we kept seeing a lot of interesting street food ideas with a Citroen H van being the most eye catching. So after a few months of discussion and planning we decided that on our return to the UK we would get a busy loan and go and purchase a van.
2CVCITY was the first place we looked and after a couple of visits Tony the boss at 2cv purchased us a long wheel base H van from France and we just had to get it heightened a foot due to Matt being 6"10 tall. The van colour and fabrication needed a little work as well couldn't qite decide what colour goes best on a H van....bright yellow and green just isn't our thing so we decided on New Age Cream that we saw on the new Fiat 500 car.
3 months down the line and now in Jan 2015 the van was coming together and was close to be sent on her way to Weston Super Mare so TudorTrailers could start designing the kitchen for us. Matt knew roughly what equpment he wanted installing it was just a matter of if there was enough room. Anyway 2 weeks down the line and she was complete and ready for her final journey to Sleaford with only the sign writing to go.

"My husband and I were lucky enough to secure Matt and Melissa from Gourmazin to do the evening catering at our wedding and we couldn't of chosen anyone better! Everyone we spoke to sung the highest praises for how out of this world the food was! They were so easy to deal with in the run up to our wedding and went above and beyond. Can't wait to bump into them again or arrange another party where Gourmazin would be top of our list!

"We were lucky enough to have Gourmazin come to our school fair yesterday. Everyone who had the food loved it and had nothing but amazing things to say about it. The pork and chorizo burger was amazing!!!
