Rebecca’s Kitchen


The heart of Rebecca Louise Catering is, of course, the proprietor; Rebecca Kirton. We have been fortunate to catch up with this food lover to discuss how her catering company started and what lead her to open Rebecca’s Kitchen; based at Malt Kiln Farm shop, serving delicious locally sourced food and beverages. Rebecca Kirton began her career as a chef, developing her craft in various hotel kitchens. During this journey, in 2006, she found herself working for an outside catering company and this is where Rebecca Louise Catering became an idea. After finding a gap in the market when her employer decided to close, Rebecca took the leap and turned that idea into her own catering company. She began catering for weddings and parties as her own boss. Providing catering services for areas across Leicestershire and Warwickshire, Rebecca Louise Catering offers a wide range of customisable services fit for any occasion and special dietary requirements. Rebecca and her team work hard to provide fresh, quality ingredients for their customers and they are passionate about creating a seamless and flexible catering experience.

With the success of Rebecca Louise Catering operating on the boarder between Warwickshire and Leicestershire, when they were approached by Malt Kiln Farm shop for the tender on a new café, it was exactly what Rebecca was looking for to grow her business. Opening in 2017, Rebecca’s Kitchen has flourished with popularity. When you arrive, you will be greeted by friendly and warm faces alongside a counter full of fresh cakes that look almost too good to eat. The menu offers a wide choice for a variety of customer needs; including gluten and dairy-free options, vegetarian and vegan dishes, as well as a scrumptious roast served on Sundays. Everything served at Rebecca’s Kitchen has been carefully considered; fresh local produce to fill up the menu of on-site, prepared dishes, meat is sourced from the butchers at Malt Kiln Farm shop and freshly baked bread is sourced from a local bakery.

Whilst we use this article as an opportunity to celebrate Rebecca’s success and hard work as an independent business owner, we must also highlight how much this community focused chef is giving back to the businesses surrounding her own. It takes not only consumers picking small local businesses for them to succeed, but also other business owners to pick their supply chain in the same manner. On behalf of small business owners alike, we salute you, Rebecca. When asked about who supports her in the running of both areas of her business, we were not surprised to find it is the family created within them; “our team are friends and family to me, we work so closely. None of what we have achieved would have been possible without them”.

The team behind Rebecca Louise Catering and Rebecca’s Kitchen have had to adapt to the current changes to their business with all the strength they can; and they are itching to get back to serving their customers again at Rebecca’s Kitchen on 4th July! Whilst things are uncertain in our surroundings and the new challenges of navigating life with Covid-19 continue to unfold, Rebecca has been able to promote outside catering services, but looks forward to opening the doors of Rebecca’s Kitchen in a few days time. There may be some uncertainty for the future, however, Rebecca has told us she plans to keep expanding her company and would like to look at opening another premises to service outstanding quality food.
