From playing restaurant in the garden to co-founding London’s leading luxury caterer, Rocket Food, Caroline Hall’s career in food was assured from the go.
After years cooking around the world with Formula One, Caroline and her brother, event planner Michael Symonds, combined their skill sets and created Rocket Food in 2000 with ambitions to lead the way for luxurious event catering in the capital and beyond. Since these beginnings, there have been thousands of illustrious food stalls, a café with Burberry, countless dinners in London’s top venues and global Formula One catering for Ferrari, Mercedes, and Aston Martin. Rocket continues to diversify with business extensions including the virtual cook-along series, A Cook’s Tour, and luxury canapé delivery service, Pocket Rocket.
Having been described as “the first lady of luxury food” and “The Queen of Canapés”, Caroline’s little black book is like of a who’s who of the culinary world. During her career she has worked alongside many of the world’s most famous and Michelin star chefs including Yotam Ottolenghi, Angela Hartnett, Fergus Henderson, Albert Roux, and Joel Robuchon.
She and her team at Rocket are regarded as the ‘go to’ people for creating phenomenal food and for throwing unforgettable parties from the intimate to the huge. Clients include businesses, both global and UK based, many of the capital’s most iconic venues including the Royal Academy and the National History Museum, celebrities, the royals as well as a host of private clients who appreciate exquisite food and faultless service.
Caroline lives in Berkshire with her family.
