I used Declan’s services for my business In Touch Beauty on Saturday night. I was so impressed with the service provided by his team. They were absolute professionals, friendly and all my clients were looked after impeccably. Everyone had Canapes, and glasses were constantly topped up, just as we wanted it.

Will absolutely use again and recommend. Great job!

Hi Declan,

I just wanted to thank you for some recent catering you did for us in laurel lodge. We were so happy with everything, everyone really enjoyed the food on the day, it was lovely to be able to serve such a nice spread.
Can I check if you have availability for a communion next year? You may be booked by now but we’ve got communion on 16th May next year. Would you be free to cater for a group of approximately 20 people?
Many thanks

Hi Declan,

Can I thank you for the fantastic meal and service in the Parlour Bar of Whelan’s on Thursday 13th June last.  The guests enjoyed the choice and the high quality of the menu on offer with friendly and efficient service. Whilst the seating was cramped for food service, Gerry and Lisa coped well in feeding the guests, with Darrell taking pride in serving the buffet and preparing the desserts.

I think Domini cancelling because of commitments to “Taste Of Ireland” really changed the game for the event. A number of the guests lecture in Culinary Arts to Masters Level alongside Derry Clarke and Nevan Maguire, and they were very impressed with the food and the service on the night. They remarked that each dish had some twist in it to set it apart from the ordinary.

Can I congratulate you on coming up with a winning formula for the night which set the right atmosphere for the evening. Thankfully there was not much food left over (some ten people attempted to get into the city and gave up due to the awful traffic).

The Whelan’s staff was bowled over by the organisation of the food element and really enjoyed the complimentary plates we handed out at the end of service. You certainly left a good impression with the staff that has never seen hot food being offered in this venue. I have name checked the company with the Venue Manager Dave Allen for future reference.

Can I wish you and the team continued success as it is very clear that you are all passionate about food.

Kind regards,


25th May 2019

My baby celebrated her confirmation on Friday and as always the food went down an absolute treat . The chicken casserole was delicious, packed with crunchy veg.

Declan and his team recently catered for our daughter’s pre wedding reception in our home. I was extremely nervous having never used caterers before. I needn’t have worried as Declan took care of everything from the start. He answered all my emails immediately and visited our home so he knew the ins and outs needed for planning at our venue. He even dealt with the cater hire company. On the night everything was superb and delicious and the presentation was flawless. I asked Declan to cater for over 50 people and wisely he advised that his portions were generous, which they were as there was plenty left and indeed we are still happily munching on leftovers. The team of four looked after everything, taking coats, serving drinks, seating guests, serving food, and before they left that night they tidied the whole house , washed dishes and glasses and stored left overs in fridge. Our family had a wonderfully relaxed and enjoyable wedding eve. Declan and his team are professional, caring and personable, they made our guests feel comfortable, happy and well catered for. Gourmet Grub Bakery are a winning team and are amazingly much cheaper than most caterers. The service Declan provided was outstanding and that was what made this special evening so successful. We strongly recommend that you enquire about their services.

7th August 2017

Dear Declan

Just a quick email to say thanks for such an excellent job last weekend. The food was wonderful and many many compliments were made on the day – even managed to give out a few of your cards. Your talent and professionalism were extraordinary.

I look forward to the next do at 38 – probably October but I’ll let the dust settle first and will be in contact nearer end of august.
Many thanks again, and I look forward to seeing you before too long.
Kind regards

10th June 2017

Hi Declan

Thank you for the great food yesterday. I thought I might have enough leftovers of the salmon roulade for myself over the weekend. Not a chance! The berry cheesecake was also a great success.
Not sure my friends will want to go back to my cooking after this 🙂
Thanks again. I certainly will be recommending you.

Hi Declan,

I met you yesterday at Leopardstown Farmers market and bought a few bits.  Just wanted to drop a line to say how delicious they were – absolutely gorgeous.
It caused rows at home as we fought over the caramel slice, lemon meringue and chocolate caramel cake!
I look forward to getting back up to Leopardstown very soon!
Many thanks,

John & Marian were fantastic, they did a superb job and as a result I felt like a guest at my own party ! I would highly recommend Gourmet Grub Bakery and I’m happy for you to use this as a testimonial if you choose too.

Kind Regards,

Hi Declan. Just a quick mail to say thank you so much for the fabulous food on Saturday. It was beyond compare and everyone here was raving about it and asking all about you. I am a vegetarian myself, as is my sister in law and we both agree that its the nicest vegetarian dish we have had. That’s not to take away from the rest of the dishes. The salads were amazing and although I didn’t partake in the chicken it too went down a treat. I was going to cook myself, but I think I wont be in a hurry now that I’ve found you.
