We take care of anything to do with putting food and people together.
That means casual, corporate, private, public, family, brand promotions or visiting dignitaries – we help you build the format for the day with styling, venues, timings, menus, staff, beverages, equipment, staging, lighting, sound, and entertainment – you can ask us anything and we’ll find it or make it. We’ll do as much or as little as you like.
Our events and kitchen team are energetic foodies who love to share ideas – we’ve seen a lot, we know a lot, but never stop listening and learning because style and knowledge are not stagnant.
We believe your event’s success has two critical pressure points, taste and timing. Beautiful food, on time. It’s crucial to the 30,000 people a year who eat with us and we make that our priority.
If it’s important to you that your caterer really gets who you are and what you’re trying to achieve then we’re the right team for you.
We’re not too big, and not too small, we’re just right. Call us now to find out more About Us 09 366 3086.
