Thanks for a terrific dinner on Saturday night last week, everyone loved it. We would like to book next year’s dinner in already for the 3rd of February 2018. Can I please have some details on the Moroccan and other large dinner information sheets before we finally decide on a type of cuisine for next year? Many thanks, Sue from St Matthew’s West Pymble.

Hi Louise, just wanted to follow up after our event on Saturday night. Honestly Dave and I can’t thank you and your team enough. It was absolutely fantastic! Not only was the food exceptional (absolutely everyone was commenting on how delish it was), but the service and professionalism was outstanding. I am forever grateful for your help in sourcing our Brazilian sensation!! What a hit!! The Margheritas were going down very well (perhaps a little too well!!). We had a fantastic night and your team played a huge part in making it such a success. I will definitely be recommending FoodStuff! Thanks again Louise. Best regards, Alice

Saturday evening 21st January 2017, Forestville, Surprise 60th, 70 people, Paella

Good morning Louise, I just wanted to write to say that Saturday night at my mum’s surprise 60th was absolutely amazing with your fantastic, highly capable and very professional team of Lachlan, Jesse and Abby working tirelessly to feed us all. Lachlan was superb at introducing the staff and communicating the plans for the night. They were exactly on time, as if they had planned to a tee when they knocked on the door, very quick in getting set up without any fuss and they were beautifully presented and courteous when they introduced themselves and stayed in contact with me all night. They gave me options for start times which was great and kept me in the know with how they were going. If it wasn’t for the huge paella dish taunting the guests with the sheer size of it and the delicious smells that eventually simmered out of it, we would hardly even have known that that they were there. The food was absolutely magnificent! Such great chefs!!! The comments from our guests included “I’m going to go as far as to say that this was the best paella I’ve ever had” and that was from a keen foodie who loves to eat out. Many went back for seconds as there was plenty to go around and our family have been delighting in eating all the left overs every night (and lunch for my brother). The A-Team then packed up super quickly and without any fuss or mess. The kitchen was more spotless than when they had arrived and that paella dish looked like brand new when they had finished. To say I was impressed is an understatement. Thank you to yourself and please thank the three amazing master chefs for their amazing hospitality and professionalism that made my mum’s surprise birthday go off without a hitch. It was super easy and I won’t hesitate to recommend and use your company again (with the same staff!!!) for our next event, whatever it might be. Until then, thank you from the bottom of my heart, Sarah Birrell

Hello Louise, I didn’t get to say goodbye and thank you and so I just wanted tell you the paella was AMAZING on Saturday, so many people said it was the BEST they’d ever had! I’m so pleased we went the all seafood option too – it was superb. I only wanted a little ‘do’ for my 50th, something intimate and relaxed and you just fitted in so beautifully, it was such a treat to have you doing the catering. I hope our eager little waiters didn’t get in the way (they are both keen foodies and were quite fascinated with what you were doing!)
Many many thanks to you and to Charlotte, I had such a special night. Kind Regards

Saturday 18th June 2016, North Willoughby, Paella, 60th, 50 people

Hi Louise and Mark, Wanted to let you know how happy Philip and I were with the paella catering provided on 18/6. Lachlan and Jess worked really well together and the seafood paella was outstanding. It was a hit with my guests who were very impressed with the whole cooking process and it was so delish, full of seafood and that crusty base in the pan. We had just returned from Spain so our expectations were high you and your team did not dissapoint.

Thank you so much for helping make Philip’s 60th celebration a huge success. Please pass on my compliments and thanks to Lachlan and Jess for a job well done. Kind Regards Ina Dunstan
