Food Stylist and entrepreneur Toria Smith is the founder of the first grazing catering company in the UK, GRAPE & Fig. After failing to find the perfect caterer for her bohemian-inspired wedding in 2016, she wanted to offer a sumptuous and visually stunning grazing table, a trend that was really taking off in Australia. Toria took the concept and a year later launched the first ever-grazing company in the UK, with the aim of producing artistic bespoke food displays that had heaps of character, high-quality ingredients and beautiful styling to create showstopping dining experiences for guests, but at affordable costs.
GRAPE & Fig is an Instagrammers dream, and word of mouth spread rapidly with influential followers and media also noticing their carefully curated produce and creative flair. It quickly became a favourite with high profile brands, celebrities and event organisers; including the likes of Instagram, Facebook, Rihanna’s, Burberry, L’Oreal, Fenty Beauty, Rochelle and Marvin Humes, Conde Nast, Sir Paul McCartney, Tom Hardy and Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson, to name a few.
All of GRAPE & Fig’s creations, from modest sharing platters to epic grazing displays are made up of locally-sourced produce, including speciality cheeses, artisan cured meats, antipasti, fresh honeycomb, seasonal fruit and veg, edible flowers and locally baked bread.
The fast growing business led to the welcome of Toria's sister, Catherine Callaghan, who joined the company in 2019. They have now both taken GRAPE & Fig to a new phase in the company’s evolution by launching luxe, signature personal gift boxes, a completely new platter range, ‘Cakes of Cheese’ and their six-step ‘Platter Method’ which can be followed at home using their new ‘DIY Grazing Platter Kit’, which are available for delivery nationwide.
Toria and Catherine, both based in London, continue to pave the way in the UK, creating show-stopping displays for events, personal gift boxes and platters everyone can enjoy at home, which look (almost) too good to eat.
