Good morning Richard. Thank you for your services yesterday providing food for our demonstration at AP Design. The presentation went well. At the end of the presentation the staff thanked us for coming & “thanks for the food”. This gave me opportunity to enquire if they enjoyed the food, to which they replied, “you can tell it’s nice by how much is left over…!!”….(there wasn’t much left over at this point!)……and then one of their colleagues echoed, ”….there’ll be nothing left over…!!!”

So thank you again. Kind regards

Geoff Jul 2013

Hi Richard and team - AEG would like to thank you for your service over the last few weeks. Your platter lunches have been outstanding, fresh, healthy and delicious. What makes it more positive, is our staff, who are mostly males, who normally like the “ greasy” foods, were so complementary about your food, and no one bad comment has been made, it’ s been the opposite! We will certainly be using your services again for our next function. Once again, thank you.

Nikki Jan 2010

As a trained chef, and restauranteur, I can be quite a picky food critic! At this time of year we are flat out, so I was thrilled at the prospect of someone else doing the hard graft for my girls' night party (20 guests) recently.
The platters of finger food arrived exactly when they were supposed to, had the right amount of food, & looked very appealing. They were innovative, varied , fresh, & delicious. Almost tempted to pass them off as my own, but conscience didn't allow. Big thumbs up from the girls -well done.
