About Us






"People who love to eat are always the best people" - Julia Child

Anita-Clare Field has been passionate about food since she could balance on a stool and watch her mother create dishes from around the world. Formally a Magazine Publisher, Anita-Clare decided to make cooking her career nearly 10 years ago as she recovered from a bad accident. 

A-C launched her tiny Bistro in the back of her re modelled Citroen HY Van in 2014 and after a hugely successful run A-C and her family relocated 5 years ago to Devon opening the Multi-Award Winning La Petite Bouchée a 24 cover brasserie in North Devon. With its roots firmly in French cuisine and specialising in fish and seafood , A-C cooks both à la carte restaurant and bistro classics. 

A-C has built a reputation here in Devon and is regularly asked to cook at events and privately for customers. All the ingredients sourced are either local ( 5-10km radius*) or homegrown and Everything is cooked from Scratch.


You may have seen her on Channel 4's Hidden Restaurants with Michel Roux Jnr showing Freddie Bird around La Petite Bouchée and cooking for him. Anita-Clare sits on several food judging panels including Taste Of The West.  

Anita-Clare is professional, personable, engaging and energetic. Her cooking style ranges from rustic to carefully curated high-end tasting menus, she loves making flavours sing. She is motivated by seeing customers enjoying their food and inspired by the incredibly bountiful larder Devon has to offer. She has a fabulous network of suppliers and highly experienced  professional team should the need arise. She looks forward to working with you.
