Absolute Taste

Our Founder

Born in Yorkshire, Lyndy began her career training as a chef at the prestigious Tante Marie School of Cookery. It was always her dream to build a successful catering business. 

During her time as a chef at the F1 races Lyndy perused this dream of having her own business.  She prepared food in the evenings from her tiny flat and dashed all over London to cook for clients and friends. Having met Ron Dennis, Executive Chairman of McLaren Automotive whilst in the motor racing world, Lyndy’s dream of owning a catering company came true. Together they formed Absolute Taste in 1997 to provide the hospitality for McLaren at the F1 races and tests. 

Today Absolute Taste has a portfolio of not only providing F1 hospitality but Lyndy has successfully expanded the business to include Absolute Taste’s Restaurants and Cafes, Private Jet Catering, Bespoke Events, fixed site contracts and Performance Sports (where is all started).

The Tante Marie School of Cookery remains close to Lyndy’s heart and she now part owns the school alongside Gordon Ramsay and the school’s Principal. 

Lyndy currently lives in London with her husband, son and dog Truffle. She takes every opportunity on her many travels to experience new restaurants and discover new food and design trends in every country she visits. She brings back inspirational flavours and styling ideas to Absolute Taste, enriching their creative events and catering.
