Last night we catered a cocktail event for Rolls Royce at their Sandton branch for their clients. It was a very classy event surrounded by gorgeous cars and gorgeous people.
The decor was put together by the creative team at Hire Society. A selection of white flowers, white candles and black and white furniture ensured a classy feel.
The evening started off with freshly shucked oysters on ice with the usual condiments. This was followed by canapes served around which included mini bunny chows with Durban chicken curry and citrus lobster medallions served on white spoons with lemon hollandaise (both pictured below). The main course section was finished off with a selection of bowl food.
We received this lovely note of thanks today:
Just wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work yesterday and last night. The event was amazing, everyone was very complimentary with the food and décor. We were all super happy with the turn out.
Thank you for making my last event here that much more special.
Take care. All the best!
On Saturday 28 June a lovely client celebrated her 40th birthday at Sir James van der Merwe in Kramerville with a Peacocks and Posers theme. Thanks to Liane Cowan for letting us tell this event’s story with her pictures…
Last week we created a little girl’s dream party to celebrate her 6th birthday. Naturally, The party had a princess theme and the colour pink was all you could see. The little girls particularly loved the pink cupcakes and the very special “hundreds and thousands” sandwiches.
Of course there was a special Princess Cake.
And a banquet spread fit for a birthday princess.
The mothers had a glorious time as well and were treated to some delicious snacks.
We received a lovely phone call after the birthday saying what an amazing party it was, and how the guests were exclaiming that it’s the best party they’ve been to. We say, job well done!
Last Saturday Natalie and Gray tied the knot with 165 smiling guests to witness this special occasion. The ceremony was held at Sir James van der Merwe and the reception at Katy’s Palace Bar.
The wedding menu was served by waiters to the guests. We started with canapés including beef fillet skewers with herbed béarnaise dipping sauce, prawn wontons with sweet chilli sauce, coconut crusted chicken lollipops, brie and fig spring rolls, smoked salmon blinis, and artichokes with lemon aioli.
Main course was next and the dishes were served in little bowls. This included mini chicken and leek pies, slow cooked lamb with parsley mash, and penne tossed in basil pesto and roast rosa tomatoes.
Dessert was arranged on the venue’s resident piano and was quite a feast for the eyes! Besides the sweets and cupcakes on display, there were also assorted mini Magnum ice-creams served on dry ice in large silver champagne coolers.
This past Tuesday night we catered a corporate gala dinner at Katy’s Palace Bar in Kramerville for 130 guests. Again we created a magical menu that tantalised our guests’ tastebuds while catering to dietary requirements.
For starters we served a baked potato cake topped with horseradish cream and smoked salmon trout and garnished with lemon wedges and dill.
The main course consisted of a 200 gram fillet prepared medium rare served with a herb béarnaise on the side accompanied with roasted plum tomatoes and buttered asparagus spears. Bowls of roasted new potatoes were served in bowls to the table.
Dessert was delightful “pezzicles” which are gelato wonderland on a stick.
We received this lovely thank you note from the client after the event. Another happy client. Another job well done.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team. Fresh have been so helpful and we have received great service.
On the night the food was great, everything ran smoothly and the waitering and bar staff were fantastic.
Thank you so much.
I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
