Zest Kitchen, Catering, Tauranga

Dear Stephen,
Thank you to you and your team for a wonderful wedding!
There were so many comments about the amazing food; your staff were just fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and they were lovely professional people. I know they worked so hard to make our occasion a very special one - would you please pass on our thanks to each of them; - Fiona's comment at the end of the night was that her wedding had been perfect.
Kind regards,
Mary Ann - St Johns

Dearest Karen and Stephen,
Thank you for playing such a huge role in making our day as special as it was for us!
I know our guests felt supremely well looked after and well fed. We could not have done it without your immense enthusiasm, knowledge and professionalism – and the Cheese Board later was incredible!

Hi Stephen and Karen,
Thank you again for your contribution to what was a fantastic night; we have had many of our friends tell us how delicious the food was and how professional, yet friendly and welcoming your staff were. I could relax and really enjoy my evening knowing that everyone was being well catered for and I didn't need to worry about a thing. We look forward catch up again sometime when we're planning the next party event.

Dear Karen and Stephen,
Thank you for the excellent job you and your team did in catering for the official opening of our Tauranga school. The finger food was delicious, and our guests commented on the quality and presentation of the food served.
 I was particularly impressed by the way you came into our premises ahead of time earlier in the week, to familiarise yourself with the layout and to talk through any last minute changes and suggestions. You made sure we didn't overlook anything and everything went without a hitch as a result.
We will be sure to use your services again and you can rest assured that we will recommend Zest Kitchen to others. Thanks again.

Hi Karen and Stephen
I was delighted with the food and your service on Wednesday evening; thank you so much
for everything!! We have added you to our purchase order system so that we can use
you for all future events.
Kind Regards,

Hi Karen,
Thank you so much... once again we have been totally overwhelmed by your seamless professionalism. You took our brief, understood exactly what was required, communicated effectively and promptly and made our opening night both a success and one that we were very proud of. Your food is just magic and you and your staff are exceptional. We are still getting feedback from clients about how good the night was and how much they enjoyed the food.
  From the moment you arrived until the moment you left, we didn’t have to worry about anything and were able to focus solely on our clients.   We were also so pleased we left the drinks selection in your hands, your choices were exemplary and we received fantastic feedback on this too.
So again Karen and Stephen -
Thank you both so much; your work is transformational!
Best Wishes

Dear Karen and Stephen,
Thank you both so much - the function was wonderful and food delicious … plus the nibbles were amazing! We look forward to working with you again.

We were absolutely delighted with the food provided by Zest kitchen for our wedding.
It was simply superb and we had dozens of compliments from our guests. They understood what our priorities were, took care of the little things, provided solutions and made the whole experience easy. More than that Stephen and Karen were a pleasure to deal with and they went out of their way to co-ordinate with our other suppliers. We will definitely use them again for either for another private or
a business function."
