Welcome to The Trading Circle

The Trading Circle



Four Brave Women connects chefs who are of a refugee or asylum seeker background with clients who are seeking catering for their next function. Our team works alongside our chefs, mentoring them to operate their business profitably and collaborating with them to produce high quality and great tasting menus. Our chefs come from a range of backgrounds and offer Iranian, Georgian, Eastern European and Iraqi cuisine amongst others. Our chefs are passionate about cooking and baking and in each recipe they have been able to preserve a tangible and integral part of their homeland. They love to share this part of their culture with their clients and they take pride and joy in every meal they prepare. Our chefs offer a large range of menu options including bulk boxes, share plates, dips, sweet and savoury canapes, desserts, traditional cakes and wedding, birthday or special occasion cakes.
