    Fine Food Cocktail Party

    A cocktail party is a fantastic way of celebrating your event. It can be anything from pre-dinner drinks and nibbles to a full dinner, only limited by your imagination. The great benefit of a party in this style is that it allows all guests to mingle and there is no need for tables and chairs. Our cocktail food is based on miniature versions of our A-La-Carte menus and gives a wonderful mix of flavours and textures. This is an option worth considering.

    Kelly and Michael from Chef in Your Kitchen made my function so easy, they were friendly and professional. I had 10 ladies for a 3 course lunch in my home, The menu was designed specially for us and was just devine. I could not have had nicer food anywhere in the Highlands. The bonus was that Kelly and Michael cleaned upo afterwards and left the place spotless. I can highly recommend Chef in Your Kitchen

    Michael and Kelly from Chef In Your Kitchen are professional and friendly. They arrive in your kitchen at an agreed time, bring all the food with them, then prepare and cook a 3 course dinner from the freshest ingredients and when dinner is finished the kitchen is left as it was when they arrived; plates, pots and pans all washed and stacked away. The flavors and presentation of the meal is simply exceptional. They design a menu to suit you. I will have no hesitation in referring Chef In Your Kitchen to someone wanting to enjoy fantastic food without the hassle. I’m just disappointed they won’t cater outside The Highlands.

  • Country Wedding

    My husband and I recently had Chef In Your Kitchen to cater for our wedding in my parents home in Bowral. We had 100 guests and at first we really wanted a sit-down dinner as this was what we thought was the right way to go for a wedding. After speaking with Kelly and Michael we realised that a cocktail wedding was not only a lot more social and relaxed it was also extremely elegant and definately cost effective. We were assured of plenty of food and even our “biggest” guests were full by the end. The range of food was amazing, our friends kept saying that each item outdid the one before. The staff were perfect, they were friendly, efficient and professional. Our wedding was all we could of hoped for and a lot of that is thanks to Kelly, Michael and the staff. Thank you so very much for making our special day extra special.
