The boss of a private dining firm in Norfolk has pulled the plug on offering catering in homes because of the risk of catching Covid.
Emma-Louise Boubaker, the owner of Bayfield Catering in Blakeney, posted her decision on Instagram, saying: "Dinner party cooking on premises will no longer be going ahead, drop off dining only.
"I have taken the decision because there is way too much Covid around the area, I will not put myself and the business in a situation where it will affect more substantial work."
Ms Boubaker said she had contacted all her clients.
Much of her business is providing catering for events such as weddings, which will not be affected. She recently said she had 42 weddings in her calendar, 18 for more than 100 people.
