Testimonials – Gourmet Foods Ltd


Thank you very much for all your time and hardwork over the last few days, weeks and months leading up to Cate and Pete’s wedding.

I want to thank you and your team for your efficiency and professionalism, you were a pleasure to work. The food was highly praised throughout the day, not only by the wedding guests but also the suppliers – those puddings were a treat for us!

After seeing Cate and Pete on Sunday it was clear the wedding was everything they wanted it to be and more and that couldn’t have been achieved without you.

Cate and Pete’s wedding

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone at Gourmet Foods for the fantastic service they provided at the wedding. The food was delicious, the presentation impeccable and the service was really impressive. Despite the fact that there were 130 guests in a marquee, each course was served promptly and guests commented that the waiting staff worked hard to ensure that everyone on the table was served together. Delicious pink lamb – just how we like it. We really appreciate the effort that everyone put into the day.

We really appreciate the effort!

A huge thank you to you and your team for last night. It was a very successful event from our point of view with really good feedback from all our customers. We had many comments on how excellent the canapés were, they looked and tasted fantastic. Your team were also very good – friendly and efficient, and very easy to work with, so please pass on my thanks.


As the dust settles after our weekend we have the opportunity to reflect, not only on the professionalism of your staff but also the quality of the ingredients and the skill of the chef.  We had so many compliments about the delicious food, particularly the steak on Saturday evening and yesterday’s barbeque was outstanding.  A very big thank you from both of us.’

I just wanted to say how grateful I am to you and your team for the catering on Saturday. The steak was absolutely perfect and lots of guests complimented the food.  I’m afraid I was too busy talking to eat every canapé but the crab tart and truffle one were amazing.  We also found your staff to be really helpful and particular thanks to Jacqueline and Oliver for their sterling work on the bar.  Knowing that you were in charge meant I could relax and enjoy the evening – which I certainly did.

It was fabulous!

Thank you for all your help with regard to our wedding planning, and for a fantastic meal on the day. We have received so many compliments on the food. How you managed to produce such a large quantity of amazingly tender lamb will remain a mystery to me!

Alison Marshall

I just wanted to say how absolutely delighted we were with all the food at the wedding.  It was all beautifully present, tasted delicious and was everything we could ever have wished for.

I cannot thank you enough for your efficiency, attention to detail and precision in delivering the food for our event.  It really could not have gone any better and I really do appreciate the effort you have put into making this a very special day for us all.

Jo Bloom

A great big thank you to all at Gourmet Foods for helping to make our anniversary celebration very special! Delicious food – First class service!

Mr and Mrs Foster

I just had to let you know, although I think other wedding party attendees may have done so already, that Ruth (the wedding planner) told Rachel that in 13 years she’d never worked with such an efficient catering operation as Gourmet Foods. We all had a fabulous day and can’t thank you enough for the food you produced on Saturday.


I’m sure there were hiccups behind the scenes but I was certainly not aware of them – I know the setup wasn’t quite what you wanted but I can’t thank you enough for, despite this,  helping to make Will and Rachel’s day such a wonderful one. When I saw the seating plan with allergies and “dislikes” I realised I have no idea how you cope!!


Thank you so, so much – you all did a fabulous job and your staff were brilliant.


A huge thank you for everything this weekend. Everyone was raving about the food and your waiting people were wonderful. Thank you.


Awesome job, well done. Lots of people said very nice things about the catering. The whole team were at such a high standard, the food was spot on, thanks so much for your and the team’s part in making a fantastic day run so well.
