Grace and Brendan’s Wildwood Wedding | June 2018

Beautiful Jo, this is Polly (Gracie’s mum from Wildwood on the weekend). I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the magnificent job you did on Saturday. Everyone raved about the food and all your staff were just soooo lovely and friendly and warm towards us. I really did get the impression when I met you the first time that you were going to make it feel like a member of the family had sacrificed being present at the wedding but had to cook instead! It was the best of the best experiences we could have hoped for. I wish you all the success you and your team deserve and would do it all in a heartbeat if one of my other daughters chose to get married down your way. What a heaven kissed experience it was. I send you a massive warm hug and truckloads of thanks and hope that someone looks after and cooks an epic celebration for you the way you have for us so that you can get a glimpse of the joy and love received from choosing you guys as Gracie and Brendan’s wedding caterers xo

Polly (mother of the bride)

Grace and Brendan’s Wildwood Wedding | June 2018

Brendan and I wanted to say how incredibly grateful we are to you for feeding us all at our wedding. Literally everyone we talked to mentioned the quality of the food and the attentiveness of your staff…I remember initially wanting home cooked meals for our party, but your catering was just exemplary and, even better, didn’t leave my family with a three day migraine and a month of washing up!

I’m sorry we didn’t get to say goodbye and thank you in person, we will never forget the role you played in our wedding and thank you for your patience and organisation.

Let us know if you’d like any photos or for us to write a review for Garnish.

We wish you all the best for the rest of your busy year, and I hope you enjoy a well earned break!

Kindest regards,

Grace and Brendan

Caitlin and Simon’s Merribee Wedding | May 2018

Hi Jo,

I just wanted to say a hugeee thank you for the incredible food you created for our wedding. I don’t know where to begin! The grazing table was one of the first things guests commented on when I arrived and our basket of nibbles was divine. The shared platters were sooo good and I can’t get over that lamb. Yum! We also loved that no-one went hungry & guests were talking about the fact that there was more than enough for everyone. You made our wedding so truly special & memorable so thank you so so much for everything. Even putting up with the bridal party in the kitchen for entrances!

I will be recommending you to everyone who will listen!! Our day just wouldn’t have been the same without you and the Garnish team.

Thanks again,

Caitlin &  Simon

Jess and Dan’s Melross Wedding | May 2018

Our guests have been gushing all weekend about how wonderful the food and your staff was! Karl and I had the best time and know that Garnish has a large part to play in making sure our day was the best it can be.

Hi Jo,

I just want to say a huge thank you for the amazing job you and your staff did for Luke and I. Not only was the food incredible but so were your beautiful staff.

Thank you thank you and thank you again.

P.s I’m dreaming of the lamb

Love Allie and Luke

Jordy and Jesse’s Sea Cliff Farm Wedding | April 2018

Hi Jo

I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for you and your teams work on Saturday. We had the most amazing day and that was largely in part to you guys and the amazing food spread you put on. We have had so many compliments on the food – everyone was raving about you. Thanks also for leaving the grazing table stuff behind so I could try some on Sunday – I didn’t quite make it to the tables on the day!

I would also like to say thank you so much for your assistance with the cyclonic conditions and furniture. Mum was so appreciative that your staff stepped in and helped out – they certainly went above and beyond their role on the day and we cannot thank you enough.

Thanks again – we had the most spectacular day!


Deb and Jake’s Willow Farm Wedding | March 2018

Hi Jo,

Just wanted to drop a quick note so say a HUGE thank you to you and your team! It was so lovely getting to meet your husband as well 🙂

The food was delicious and the service was impeccable! I have had so many people rave about the food and everyone was over fed which is AMAZING! The sausage rolls were a huge hit actually and I know the hungover boys the next day enjoyed them 🙂

Please pass along my thanks to the team they did an incredible job!

Love Deb and Jake

Amelia and Jono’s Merribee Wedding | March 2018

Dearest Jo

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you & your team did to make Amelia & Jono’s wedding just perfect. Our guests are still raving about your beautiful, delicious,abundant, generous food. In fact generous is the word I would use to describe everything about you & Garnish – from the food to your generosity with your time & your kindness to Jerin-lei who was decorating the barn. You get a lovely shout out on her instagram for your understanding.

The brunch was the biggest hit too.

Thank you for everything you did for us, going above & beyond & making this very special day really special.

Yours in friendship,

Elisabeth Goodsall (mother of the bride)

Kristie and Scott’s Terara Riverside Gardens Wedding | February 2018

Hi Jo,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help with our wedding. The food was absolutely delicious, the staff were awesome (especially making all those espresso martini’s!) and we really appreciated all your help with the cleaning up 🙂

Liz and Dave’s Willow Farm Wedding, Berry | April 2017

We cannot thank you enough for your food, service, care and calm nature at our wedding yesterday. Our guests were so impressed with your staff, the service and the food.

Jess and Adam’s Wildwood Wedding, Kangaroo Valley | April 2017

Jess and I wanted to thank you for the amazing food and catering service that you provided for our wedding in Kangaroo Valley in April. I honestly cannot tell you how many times people came up to us on the night, and have told us since, how delicious all of the food was. It truly was the best wedding food we have ever had, and all of our guests agreed!

We wanted to also thank you for the professional staff who helped the event run so smoothly and run so perfectly.

Thank you again to yourself and the amazing staff as we would not have had such a perfect day with your help.

Tessa and Adam’s Melross Wedding, Kangaroo Valley | April 2017

Thank you for your contribution to making our wedding as special as it was. The food was amazing and thoroughly enjoyed by all! We also had the pleasure of enjoying MANY leftovers with our family the next day which was great.

Lucienne and Barnaby’s Bundanon Wedding, near Nowra | April 2017

We wanted to say an enormous thank you for the incredible feast you put on at our wedding. We (and our guests) were absolutely thrilled – we had several people ask us who had catered the wedding, saying that they had never had such excellent food at a wedding and were keen to get your details for their next big events.

The grazing table was an absolute hit and the Ottolenghi-inspired meal was just perfect.  The staff were also so fantastic – incredibly professional, but with a lovely warm and relaxed manner and so flexible in terms of timing (which as I’m sure you’ve all experienced can be somewhat unpredictable!)

We had an incredible day and absolutely loved every minute.  You were absolutely part of our vision and we felt like it all came together so well.

Sarah and Stewart Willow Farm Wedding, Berry | April 2017

I was so pleased with the food/catering on our wedding day. Everything was absolutely perfect – food and staff alike. You guys are amazing. Thank you so much!! My guests have raved about the food ever since – particularly the grazing table, the lamb and the vegetarian tart/ragu.

Laura and Josh’s Melross Wedding, Kangaroo Valley | March 2017

Thank you for absolutely everything you did for our wedding last Sunday. Everyone has been raving about the food non stop. I also wanted to thank you for everything running so smoothly, and for going above and beyond, catering for all our people with special needs, making cocktails etc. It was such a comfort having you there on the day and we appreciate it all.

Thanks again and hopefully we will have an opportunity to use your services in the future.

Jane and Alex’s Berry Wedding | March 2017

It was amazing working with you and thanks to you and your wonderful team. You guys were absolutely wonderful, a lot of our guests said how great you all were and the service was fantastic. The food was divine. You really added to making our day so magical.

Thanks so much for everything Jo you truly are a superstar

Kate and Jonathan’s Melross Wedding, Kangaroo Valley | March 2017

Sam and Vanessa’s Merribee Wedding, near Nowra | March 2017

So I know I said it a hundred times but you guys were absolutely fantastic and everybody loved the food. I had no shame with the crackling! They’re all wondering what magic you worked on the pumpkin haha! Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job. You’ve been such a pleasure to work with.

Sally and Ryan’s Willow Farm Wedding, Berry | February 2017

We just wanted to say thank you again for making our wedding day such a success last week. The food was absolutely delicious, people are still raving about it and the staff and service on the day was honestly outstanding. You made everything so easy for us from the very beginning so thank you for that. We are also still working our way through those amazing hams! 🙂

Thank you again and if we every need a caterer down here for other events you will definitely be our first call!

Yudi and Vicky’s Willow Farm Wedding Berry | February 2017

I was pretty sure you and the team would be great but as it turns out you were awesome! We’ve had so many comments on the food. I don’t think many of our friends had been to a feast style wedding before and they were so impressed. And the way we were looked after, reassured and cared for by all of your team was so amazing. I can’t thank you enough.

Berry Show Girl Ball | January 2017

Thank you so much again for the best, most delicious, mouth watering food as always. Everyone raves about the food, you are incredible. Thank you to your staff for such a great job too.

Thank you again for everything, you are amazing.

Therese – Organiser

Matt and Nicole’s Melross Kangaroo Valley Wedding | December 2016

We are so absolutely stoked with how good you and all your staff were on Saturday. You all went above and beyond for our guests and the bridal party. The food was incredible and all our guests have commented on it being the best wedding food they have ever had. Also a massive thank you for all the little things you put in place for us so we could relax and really enjoy the day together.

Fi and Jon’s Willow Farm Wedding, Berry | November 2016

A HUGE THANK YOU for catering our wedding! The food was absolutely amazing, your staff were all so lovely and it helped make our wedding better than we could have ever imagined.

So many of our guests have complimented us on the food and said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. I have had friends trying to find maple pumpkin recipes on Pinterest and sending them to each other and another Albanian friend who prides herself on her lamb cooking ability said it was the best she had ever had.


Jane’s Driftwood Shed Wedding, near Nowra | November 2016

Wow – Saturday…your team and food were absolutely AMAZING!!!
Everyone was asking us who the caterer was!
Your staff were excellent and so accommodating!
The food was plentiful and delicious!
The cheese wheel cake was beautiful and cheeses oh so yummy!

Please pass on our sincere thanks to all that worked on Saturday.

Michelle and Nick’s Willow Farm Wedding | November 2016

Thanks SO much for Saturday Jo! The spread Garnish Catering put on was absolutely epic. Everyone was raving about how delicious and abundant the food was. You guys definitely helped make the day as perfect as it was! All your staff were amazing and friendly, it was just awesome. Thanks so much, you guys rock!

Maddy and James’ Merribee Wedding, near Nowra | November 2016

Thanks so much for the delicious food and wonderful service last Saturday for Maddy and James’ wedding. Everybody commented on the quality of the food. Thanks also for setting up the grazing table so beautifully….it was also a great hit. – Libby (Mother of the Bride)

Alicia and Rob’s Willow Farm Wedding | November 2016

I just wanted to let you know what extraordinary feedback I have had from nearly all of our guests about both your food, and your staff. I could not be happier with the experience overall. People have been messaging me all week to get your five-spice port recipe or even asking how they can ever eat beef again that isn’t your mustard crust beef! Mainly, I’ve been told its the best wedding food they have ever had.

Please share our sincerest thanks with your sensational staff for all their help, support and kindness on the day. And simply how easy it all was for everyone involved.

Lauren and Dane’s Merribee Wedding, near Nowra | October 2016

The food was absolutely outstanding, exceeding our already high expectations. I am pretty sure every single guest commented at some point on how good the food was, and if we had a dollar for everyone who mentioned the arancini, it probably would’ve paid for our honeymoon! We honestly couldn’t fault anything. Having worked in catering myself previously, I know how difficult it can be serving large amounts of food at one time. I was blown away by how you managed to serve the chicken so moist & juicy, and the beef so tender & perfectly cooked. Each and every staff member was friendly, helpful & attentive. Drinks were always full, as were everyone’s bellies by the end of the night.

I should also add that the whole process of planning our menu was made super easy thanks to your exceptional customer service, honesty & expertise. Emailing you back & forth with ideas was a breeze, and you made everything happen so easily, without question.

Thank you for contributing to our special day, it truly was the best, most magical day, made even better by our stellar suppliers!


Suzanne and Beneton’s Willow Farm Wedding Berry NSW | October 2016

Suzanne and I just wanted to say a very warm thank you for the delicious grazing table, for your services and for making our wedding day at Willow Farm so special and memorable. Everything came together well and the food was a gigantic hit! It really was truly delicious.

Sussex Inlet Wedding | October 2016

Thank you for the amazing job you and your staff did at our wedding. Everything ran so smoothly and we have had so many of our guests compliment your staff and remark on how great the food was.


Caitlin and Chris’ Merribee Wedding, near Nowra | September 2016

The food was amazing and I’ve never heard of so many people raving about wedding food! The staff were faultless and absolutely amazing!

Kristie and Adam’s Willow Farm Berry Wedding | September 2016

Our friends and family absolutely LOVED the food and we have received so many compliments on our choice of caterer. I know the arancini balls and zucchini flowers were a huge hit and the lamb was definitely a favourite too. Thanks so much again!

Terara Riverside Gardens Wedding | September 2016

Jo!! The food was amazing tonight … everyone raved on about how fantastic it was and I have to majorly commend the staff you had on .. they were just beautiful .. so friendly and fun and still so professional. I am so impressed, seriously. Thank you for being so helpful and hiring great staff who gave us a stress free night!!! X

Johanna and Pat’s Willow Farm Berry Wedding | September 2016

Pat and I just wanted to send you the biggest thank you and hug and kiss (possible through email!) for everything you guys did for us on Saturday and leading up to the day! Honestly there wasn’t one person who didn’t comment on the food or notice just how hard you guys were working. The whole team was amazing and to say that you exceeded our expectations would be an understatement! Thanks for everything!

Britt & Jase’s Melross Kangaroo Valley Wedding | September 2016

The biggest thank you to you and the whole Garnish team! From the canapés, share plates and drink service, everything was just so perfect! We have already received so many comments from guest about how delicious the food was and how friendly and helpful your staff were. We couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much for helping to make our special day run so smoothly filling by everyone’s bellies with mouth watering goodness!

Jessica and Andy’s Terara Riverside Gardens Wedding | September 2016

Thank you for catering my daughters wedding on Saturday. I was very impressed with the quantity and quality of the food. The bar service and waiters were attentive and friendly and it all came together smoothly and added to making Jessica and Andy’s day a beautiful one.

Caitlin & Tristan’s Merribee Wedding, near Nowra | July 2016

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for making our wedding day so memorable. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you.

The consensus amongst all the guests, and of course Tristan and myself too, was that the food was AMAZING! Hands down the best food at a wedding, and any event I have ever attended. Our guests couldn’t stop raving about how delicious everything was and everyone was fed so well! There was plenty of food to go around, and we even got fed our canapés whilst getting photos done; thank you so much!! Thank you for being flexible too – I know we ran way too early (apologies), but you guys worked with the change without any issues.

Your staff were fantastic. Please pass on our gratitude to your team; every single one was friendly and happy to assist where possible. I think we ran out of beer early on, and one of the ladies went out and bought some more for us! I cannot think of any other company who would be so kind to help us out like that… Your entire operation was so smooth and efficient.

I would definitely come back to you guys a million times over for any catering job. You have set a standard I wish other companies could emulate. Thank you for making our day extra special!!

Lisa & Adam’s Terara Riverside Gardens Wedding, near Nowra | April 2016

Adam and I would love say a very big and special thank you to all the Garnish team for doing an amazing job last night with catering our wedding! The food was absolutely delicious! We received many compliments. All the staff were so lovely. You all did such a great job and we are very impressed with service we received! You guys made everything just perfect! We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know! Thank you so very much!!!

Amelia’s Kangaroo Valley Wedding | March 2016

I just wanted to say thank you for the most DELICIOUS food at the wedding and FANTASTIC wait staff. Honestly, I have been getting non-stop compliments from people about how much they enjoyed the food. People have been raving about it. 10 out of 10. I certainly thought it was fantastic and am thrilled that everyone agreed. 

I was absolutely thrilled with how the wedding went. The whole thing surpassed my wildest fantasies of how well it could go. Feel very lucky to have had such a special day. 

From go to whoa, you’ve been such a pleasure to work with. Thank you for being so low maintenance and flexible. Please pass on my thanks to your team for their hard work and dedication. You’re all bloody legends! 

Natalia’s Merribee Wedding, near Nowra | March 2016

Thank you SO much for the beautiful catering at our wedding!! The food was so delicious and amazing. Everyone commented on how great it was! The slow roasted lamb was a particular hit!! And the vegans and vegetarians were so impressed with your catering for them!! Thank you again!!

Ashleigh’s Birthday Bash in Berry | March 2016

I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much, to you and your team for the incredible, generous and beautiful spread you put on last night. I was literally blown away and so were my guests. The food was nothing short of spectacular. Literally. Everyone LOVED it! Your staff are some of the kindest, most professional people I’ve met, and they left the kitchen spotless. Thank you so much. You will come HIGHLY recommended.

Kat & Dan’s Kangaroo Valley Wedding | February 2016

Kat and I just wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge thanks for the exceptional effort you and your staff made for our wedding at Melross.

We have heard nothing but great feedback about the food. Everyone was very well fed. Surprisingly, the best feedback was for the beef sliders at the end of the evening, they were very well received by all those guests burning up energy on the dance floor. The arancini was also a favourite.

Another big thanks to your bar staff who did everything they could to make sure we were all looked after.

It certainly was true what they say about time flying when it’s your own wedding, we didn’t have time to notice much about what was happening but from the confidence that was taken away with us from the tasting last year we were both very confident and able to relax knowing you guys had it all dialled in.

Gerroa Wedding | February 2016

Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for the brilliant food and service that contributed so heavily to us having just the best night on Saturday.

Derek and all your staff were fantastic and their attention to all the guests allowed Tom and I to really relax and enjoy a fantastic wedding. They are all great people. I had so many compliments about the quality and quantity of the food from our guests, and the grazing table was really appreciated but the late revelers! 

And then the breakfast – truly wonderful to have everything ready to go for the 60 or 70 who turned up on Sunday. The pastries were fantastic, the fruit plentiful and beautifully presented and the boys did a great job with the bacon and egg rolls. 

We really appreciate all your great advice on the logistics – after we met you we felt everything was going to be under control on the day, and it was!

Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you again for future significant family events.


Ali’s Gerroa Wedding | February 2016

Thanks so much to you, Derek and your team for doing such an amazing job at our wedding on Saturday.

Berry Show Girl Ball | January 2016

Just a quick note to say thank you for the magnificent food – I wish we could have had left over’s at 1.30 when we were cleaning up.

Our official table was bubbling with praise especially from Deputy Mayor John Wells and wife Dale.

Please thank all your staff as well for their impeccable service; I have had a huge number of people acknowledging the flavours style and presentation of the dinner.

Peter Hands, President of the Berry Show Society

Thank you for running such a seamless show, your staff were incredible and so lovely, and all of you just so incredibly helpful. I wouldn’t change a single thing from the day and know that a significant part of that is thanks to everything you and your team provided.

We have had some great feedback from our guests on the quality of the food and the substantial size. Your staff were all fantastic and ensured those with dietary requirements were well taken care of, so please pass on our thanks to them also.

Countless people commented on how impressive the food was, the best they had experienced at a wedding. They also loved how when they had finished a platter, there was more food offered. I can’t thank you enough for doing such a good job and helping make our wedding so special. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I just wanted to say a big thank you all your and your staff’s efforts at the wedding. All the food was amazing and we had many positive comments from the guests. You were a pleasure to work with. 

Hannah & Ryan’s Driftwood Shed Wedding, Near Nowra | March 2015

I cannot tell you how happy we are that we had Garnish cater our wedding. From the very outset, you truly went above and beyond to help us out in so many ways, from giving us a free tasting of your delicious menu items; to providing additional services on the night such as setting up our cheese and dessert platters and serving our cake to guests at no added cost; to offering to cater our post wedding BBQ on the Sunday at a very reasonable cost. 

We were always confident that you would do an amazing job, but you really blew us away on the day. The food was absolutely outstanding – the beef fillet in particular was perfection, and I absolutely LOVED all of the sides. We had SO many comments from our guests about how delicious the food was – including one who is a chef! Suffice to say we’re still talking about some of the mouth watering dishes and wishing we could do it all over again.

You and your team was absolutely lovely on the ground, and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for making our day so special. It was so wonderful dealing with a supplier who was more like an old friend. We would not hesitate in recommending you to friends and family and in fact, have already done so for a few friends getting married in the region next year!

Katherine & Matthew’s Merribee Wedding, Near Nowra | February 2015

Thank you for your seamless service for our wedding at Merribee. We had such a great time and it was mainly stress free because of how well your staff got in and got everything done. Simply the best!

Nia & Todd’s Berry Wedding | February 2015

On behalf of Todd and myself, we just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your staff for catering our wedding. Every one of our guests have raved to us about your food and the great service. They have voted your food “the best” food they have had at any wedding so far! 

Every course was simply perfect and the food seemed to compliment the style of the night just perfectly. We are just so lucky to have found Garnish Catering and will strongly recommend you to anyone we can. 

You will have to send me the dressing recipe for the spinach pear pomegranate salad as you just made it to PERFECTION. There wasn’t a guest that didn’t rave on about the salads and the quality of the meat and the vegetables and… the list goes on.

Thank you again!

Thank you so much for all your hard work in the lead up to the wedding. You made everything so easy and relaxing and were an absolute joy to work with.

Rebecca & Peter’s Merribee Wedding, Near Nowra |February 2014

Our wedding day was perfect and that in a large part was thanks to you and your wonderful staff. We were hearing comments all evening that ours was the best food at a wedding anyone had ever had and for Peter and I who are food obsessed this made us so happy. Nothing was too much trouble, there was more than enough of everything to go around and our guests left full and happy. You more than exceeded our expectations! The dessert buffet was without a doubt the highlight of the night and I saw many a guest going back for seconds and thirds in between dances – those brownies! 

Holly & Matt’s Driftwood Shed Wedding, Near Nowra | December 2013

A massive and very sincere thank you! We have had so many lovely comments on how good the catering was – and not only on how the food was so tasty but also how great the staff were. I am so glad that we were recommended you! We had such a fun day, it was exactly how we wanted it (well, we could have done without that stupid rain but never mind, the day was still amazing).

Katie & Chris’ Driftwood Shed Wedding, Near Nowra | November 2013

I just have to pass on some of the wonderful feedback we received from our guests … Best beef they have ever had & the beetroot salad was an absolute winner … The homemade lemonade & vodka was absolutely delicious & went down so well … But those raspberry choc brownies – to die for! Your staff were AMAZING … so lovely & helpful & we just can’t thank you all enough! Our catering matched all the other elements of our day so perfectly … we couldn’t have hoped for better food & service as we dined under the stars at the beautiful Driftwood Shed! We know it was hard work but we also hope you had fun, especially since it was your birthday! Thank you, thank you, thank you X

Brittany & Michael’s Driftwood Shed Wedding, Near Nowra | October 2013

A huge thank you to you and your amazing team for the fabulous service you all provided at our wedding at Driftwood Shed. Leaving everything to the last minute & putting the pressure on you all to keep our BIG secret, you remained understanding, professional and shared a genuine excitement for our big day (it was nice to see you shed a tear when I told my mum the exciting news as well). Having great food was essential to us for making our day a success & you more than delivered on this. The flavours and amount of food served on our day was delicious and all our guests complimented us on it also. We will definitely being referring your business on to others who need catering in the future.

Meredith & Nathan’s Merribee Wedding, Near Nowra | October 2013

Thank you thank thank you for your amazing assistance leading up to (organising a wedding from another country is certainly a test for all involved) and the super yummy food and great service on the day of our wedding and the following day of “recovery”. You guys ROCK! We had a super amazing time and everyone had a total blast. We are still hearing just how much everyone enjoyed themselves. Thank you for all that you did to ensure it went off without a glitch!

Thank you for doing such an amazing job at our wedding. Our guests all raved about the food (“best wedding food they’ve ever had”), the service and the fact that they didn’t ever want for anything.  And we have some tough customers, including one fine dining Chef In our party who was very complimentary about the food. And your friendly staff went above and beyond our expectations. We are just trying to conjure up an excuse for you to cater for us again!

Adam and I wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful food you provided on Saturday. So many guests commented on how much they enjoyed it (even the ones that don’t normally eat veggies!). But we wanted to say an even bigger thank you to you and your staff. They were amazing. Dealing with the weather conditions that we had that night they still made our night one to remember. They had a smile on their faces and were only too happy to help all of our guests with anything, no matter how wet they got. Please pass on our thanks to them.

Lucy & James’ Culburra Beach Wedding | April 2012

Jo Jorgensen and her brilliant team at Garnish Catering were integral in making our beach cocktail wedding in Culburra Beach such a success last month. Jo was immensely accommodating and helpful right from the start; from suggesting a delicious, relaxed menu for us to use, to manning the cocktail bar, to working around a less-than-impressive kitchen space mid-renovation, and making sure our rowdy guests were well-fed all night! Weeks on, friends are still talking about those mouth-watering prawn gow gees, the unforgettable Portuguese tarts, and the tireless wait staff who managed to find guests in every corner of the room. Thank you so much for making our day as wonderful as we could ever have imagined, Jo, and we can’t wait till we can enjoy more of your scrumptious creations at our next party.
