Frequently Asked Questions

 

What preparation can I do for your arrival?
We ask for very little – it would be appreciated if you could provide us a clutter-free kitchen, access to a stove and/or oven and perhaps one free shelf in the fridge. You can be rest assured we will take care of the rest, so you can relax and fully enjoy the occasion.

What time will you arrive and how long will you stay?
Generally, we will arrive 1 hour prior to the guests to prepare for the service and will stay for as long as required by the host.

Are you flexible with what dishes you will prepare?
Yes, we respect your personal tastes and liking in food, therefore your favourite dishes can be catered for to your own liking. We also provide vegetarian and vegan alternatives along with dietary-specific options. Festive, themed or ethnic-specific menus can also be arranged. All menus are discussed and finalised through personal consultation with Chef Daniel Frutiger to ensure customer satisfaction.

When do you require confirmation of number of guests and dishes/courses?
We require that you confirm the date of your event as soon as possible to ensure availability. In regards to number of guests, function type, dishes, address and time and so on – these details should be organised and confirmed at least 1 week prior to the event.

Do you cook and serve the food on site?
Yes, we will cook and serve all food on site to ensure upmost quality and satisfaction is maintained.
