What is Bite Around The World?
Bite Around The World is a catering business specialising in creative and sociable catering for events and gatherings.
OUR AIM IS TO SHARE OUR FAVOURITE FLAVOURS FROM ACROSS THE WORLD WITH YOU.
Bite Around The World cater for all types of events - from Brand and Corporate Events, Celebratory Events, Weddings, Public Events and Festivals and Gatherings. Bite Around The World is based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire but travels across England.
Originally Bite Around The World started as a food travel blog on Instagram in September 2017 documenting some European trips in addition to focusing on British Cuisine.
2018 saw founders Lauren & Toby travelling through South East Asia and Australia where they provided insights into cultures through food; on both Instagram and their blog; providing pictures, reviews, experiences, tips and recommendations.
2019 saw the launch of Bite Around The World into an official business. Bite Around The World specialises initially in street food at public events. The success of street food naturally lead Bite Around The World to more private events, which then continued to lead onto grazing tables and platters which have been hugely popular since launching. In Bite Around The World’s first year of business they catered for some of the worlds biggest brands including Nike, Just Eat + Google, not forgetting public figures such as Youtube & Bloggers - In The Frow, Lydia Millen, Carly Rowena, Love Island’s Kady Mcdermott + Britains Got Talent La Voix.
Lauren & Toby welcomed 2020 with a month back in South-East Asia to revisit their biggest inspiration for starting Bite Around The World as a food business. Covid-19 since then has pushed Bite Around The World to successfully adapt to the current times and climate and now focus on Grazing Boxes which have been hugely popular with their Classic, Mediterranean & Mini menus as gifts and treats, to now more recently gatherings and small events.
what a journey...but we've only just got started!
"Lauren and Toby, the food was amazing, and loved by all! So many people affected by cancer have difficulty with food and foods types, so your grazing table was perfect. Everyone was so impressed!! Both of you are so caring, friendly and professional, thank you for everything. We will highly recommend, and cannot wait to work with you again."

Who's behind the brand?
We’re Lauren and Toby; a couple from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, UK. We decided to quit our jobs in order to see the world. We both share a love for food, travelling and events and that is how Bite Around the World was created.
Toby grew up wanting to have a mobile bar of his own and in 2013 he completed a catering course, before travelling he ended up as a carpenter creating bespoke kitchens, so he's always having an interest in kitchens, just now he's on the other side!
Lauren has always had a love for events, studying Events Management at the University of Greenwich where she graduated in 2015. She then worked in London as a Corporate Event Organiser, with lots of hospitality experience - which has definitely helped with Bite Around The World!!
