I just wanted to tell you how incredible the food was at our wedding!! Every single guest complimented us on the food – which is obviously a compliment to you guys! Some guests said it was the best food they’ve had in years – wedding food, restaurant food and home cooking food. They even said it was better than their own wedding food. One guest snuck in a second course of tuna he loved it so much! You guys made our wedding ten levels above the rest and we are so grateful for all your help and incredible service up until the very last detail! You guys nailed it! Thank you so much again! We are continuously recommending you guys to everyone! – Janet & Craig Sattary

We work closely with venues and as a result have established good relationships. We understand what works well while maintaining a high level of creativity with every event. Without fail we receive such positive feedback from both clients and guests and we pride ourselves on our professional and personalised service.
We recently got married close to Cape Town and The Flying Pan was an incredible discovery! We were planning a small, intimate affair and wanted a private chef to prepare a delicious evening meal that would spoil our close friends and family. Matt was friendly, helpful and accommodating from the first moment we made contact and he and his team worked so hard to create a menu we and all our guests LOVED. On the day, he quietly and calmly set himself up in the small kitchen of our non-traditional venue, went about his work… and created MAGIC! Everything was delicious and we had nothing but compliments from all our guests. Thank you Matt and team! – Vanessa & Chad

Your guests are looking forward to a spectacular meal and you naturally would not want to disappoint. Food plays such an important role at an event. Guests measure the success of an event to their culinary experience! Never skimp. Spoil your guests with freshness, tastes and colour.
Your wedding caterer will not simply suggest and supply the food. Depending on your caterer it could include coordinating rentals required, providing well-trained service staff for set-up, serving and the post-wedding strike.
Decide on your budget and serving preference first. A full service set menu perhaps with some à la carte options? Or more relaxed and social food stations or a mediterranean buffet to the table? Your caterer will be able to discuss the pros and cons of each option and suggest the best way forward to ensure your menu and serving style fit in with the style and atmosphere of your wedding.
Speak to your caterer about your budget and serving style, amount of guests, culinary preferences and dietary requirements. You can leave it in their professional hands to create a menu perfectly suited for you.
Caterers offer menu tastings. We highly recommend it! Why not go a for wonderful meal with your fiancé, pair some wines and enjoy the tastes and options. This will give you peace of mind and also expose you to some options you might not even have considered.
