Katerina, assisted by Jurie, made my mum’s 60th birthday the most special of days. From the start Katerina was a pleasure to deal with. She created the most fantastic menu, catering to many different tastes as well as ensuring there were delicious vegetarian and coeliac-friendly options included. In the run up to our party, she answered any questions incredibly quickly and kept in touch regularly. On the day itself, Katerina and Jurie arrived on time and were both so friendly and personable. They found their way around our kitchen easily and prepared an incredible meal in no time at all. Each course was fantastic and not a single plate had food left on it. When they were finished they left the kitchen spotless. I couldn’t recommend Katerina more and we will definitely book again.

Jack was absolutely fantastic from sending his menu, to leaving on the night. I booked Jack to cook for 8 of us for my sisters hen weekend and Jack travelled over an hour there and back to do this for us. He was brilliant from the minute he got there, putting on a ‘husband to be’ mask, taking photographs for us, chatting to us, not to mention his amazing food. We got even more than what was on the menu and we honestly felt like we were in a 5 star restaurant!! Jack told us exactly what he was serving with each dish and the presentation and flavours were out of this world. He even left us his salt as we forgot to bring some!! The kitchen was immaculate when he left!!!! I won’t hesitate to use Jack again and look forward to the next time : )

I would highly recommend Paul. His Italian/Japanese fusion menu was perfect for the occasion and also delicious. Paul took the time to answer our questions and was very interesting to chat to. His skill & attitude made for an excellent evening!
