Paula McCloy has spoken of her pride at her home-based catering company Titley Green being given the gold Taste of the West award.
A Colaton Raleigh entrepreneur has been left ‘overwhelmed’ after being put forward for a regional award final.
Paula McCloy’s Titley Green has been put forward in the finals of the ‘Local Food to Go’ category of the Taste of the West awards.
The caterer, who launched the business 15 months ago, was also given a gold award for the same category this year.
This follows a silver award in the same category last year.
The 53-year-old will find out if she has been named the best ‘food to go’ business in the region at the Taste of the West Finals next month.
Paula said: “We are completely and utterly overwhelmed.
“It’s been quite a transition for me. The silver award last year gave me some good feedback.”
Paula set up the venture after noticing there was a gap in the market for home-cooked, locally sourced food.
The home-based company provides outdoor catering for public events in a 1960s vintage caravan, known as ‘Gertie’.
This year, Paula is looking to expand into private bookings.
