Dear Spare Chef Team
THANK YOU so much for providing such superb service and top quality food for our wedding held at Villa Vivante in March this year. Your team were unbelievable and the wide variety of food on offer by Spare Chef was amazing. We had a hard choice deciding what to service for our guests at the event due to the delicious menus on offer, though I am extremely happy to report our guests were utterly impressed. I have had several guests comment that they had never experienced such flavoursome food and professionalism displayed by Spare Chef at our Wedding.
Your accommodating and easy going approach made the planning and flow of the day the most amazing event of our lives and can’t thank you enough. We enjoyed sharing our day with you and your team.
I would highly recommend your services to anyone considering Spare Chef to cater for any event as I can honestly say they will not be disappointed.

This is just a little email to thank you, and your fantastic staff for the catering you did for us on our wedding day.
You were very helpful with the organisation in the menu and any questions I had.
The food was absoluely fabulous. I had alot of people comment on how great it was. Even a family friend from England who said she’d been to alot of weddings and by far, ours was the best food ever!! So congratulations on that!!
Your staff were very helpful and never stopped working! The waiter (i think his name was Bradley??) was great! He was having a laugh with us and made sure Ben and I didn’t go without! Making sure we ate (although my dress wouldn’t allow it), but looking after our wedding party and all the guests! Please pass on our thankyous to any other staff that i didn’t get to meet!
Thanks again, If another occasion arises, i would not hestiate to have you do our catering again!
Monique & Ben Byrne.
Our thanks to you & your staff for their contribution to your evening – they were professional, courteous and friendly! We were able to relax because all was in hand – it was marvelous!
There were many compliments about the meal – it was fabulous! Amazing how you can produce such beautifully presented food from a rustic kitchen, sight unseen for 120 people. Well done!
Thank you again,
Many, many thanks for the wonderful food and professional service you supplied for our daughter, Leah’s wedding to Greg Stephinson at Gleniffer. Your whole presentation was superb and meeting with you & further dealings were always a pleasure. You always returned calls and came up with all these excellent ideas which contributed to the night being the success it was.It amazed us what you can achieve with your team in such a short time & in an area of such a little space. Your organisation meant we could relax and truly enjoy our daughter’s wedding.
Everybody complimented the food and I must say I have never been to a wedding before where such a point was made about the food. (We went to 6 last year!!) So thank you again for sharing your talents and your team for being so friendly, courteous & patient. Your contribution added that special touch down to the tiniest detail. Plus…what can we say about the cake! It was fabulous, there wasn’t one piece left by midnight. You decorated it very elegantly to stay in keeping with the theme and Leah told me to thank you from the bottom of her heart.
They are honeymooning in Thailand now and thankfully avoided any trouble. We will certainly be recommending your professional services to friends and associates and wish you all the best for future success. I know we will be using your services again.
Thank you again.

I just wanted to thank you and the team for the great service at yesterday’s function in Stuarts Point. It was a great relief to the family to be able to leave the catering and service to you and simply relax with their guests. The food was lovely and the service brilliant. Thanks so much.

I wanted to say thank you for providing our catering yesterday (upon short notice).
I received great feedback – with the canapes in particular, and presentation was great.

Being the bride and groom and having to talk to lots of people we unfortunately didn’t get to try all the food, but what we did have was delicious, and we had lots of people tell us they really enjoyed the food. Also there was plenty of it which was great.
And the staff were lovely and good at looking after the people with dietary requirements once they found out who they were, and I also noticed that the chefs made some special stuff for the kids which was brilliant as I hadn’t thought of the fussy children.
We were really happy with the service and food and would definitely recommend the Spare Chef to others.

This is a very overdue note of thanks for catering our wedding back on March 3rd at Eagles Rest.
The food and service was excellent and you guys were a pleasure to work with – we’ll certainly be recommending you to others for catering in the area going forward.
Thanks again for taking care of us – we had a great day and the catering was a highlight of the day for all that attended.
Cheers – Matt and Lauren
