"Dear Jane

I want to thank you and your wonderful staff so much for the amazing job you did on Saturday the 20th February for my daughter Amanda and son in law Daniel’s wedding. Everything was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The comments I received from all the guests was all positive and they all said it was so nice to have the variety of different food you presented.

I want to also thank you personally for always keeping in contact and your kindness and caring not only before the wedding but also on the day. This is a wonderful company and I would recommend it to everyone. I’m would like to give you a big ‘thank you’ hug for being so involved and you make people feel that their occasion is the most important one that you have come to.

Thank you so much again Jane.

I just wanted to take the time to thank you and your staff for their fabulous service on the night of my 40th birthday!

The food was delicious, well prepared and presented, but best of all plentiful! Your 2 staff were so lovely and pleasant to both myself, my family and all the guests, we couldn't have asked for more.

The girls left my kitchen SPOTLESS and put the uneaten food in the freezer - perfect!

Thank you for the ballon deco gift, it was a lovely touch and went perfectly with my theme.

I will surely use you in the future should I need another catering service, and will recommend you to my friends.>

Thanks again, Bec

Thanks, the fingerfood and salads were perfect quantity for our party. Everyone loved the little pine boats and wooden forks they were served in. Thanks to your hard-working girls in the kitchen. Thanks for organising the extra mini desserts - you were right, they just vanished off the plate! We had them an hour before the last race.

Make sure we're in the diary for next Melbourne Cup day!

Hi Ladies,

Just a quick email to congratulate you on a job well done. Please find below a copy of the feedback that I received today from May (Jodie's Mum) on the wedding we did recently 12th Sept. Great job and team work - well done.

"Dear Jane,

I would just like to express our upmost sincere thanks to you and your staff for the wonderful catering service you provided for our daughters garden wedding on September 12th.

From the very first email we received from you with a food suggestion list and prices for our wedding of 140 guests to the professionalism of all 4 of you coming to find my husband and myself to say goodbye at the conclusion of your allotted time.

The food was amazing and we have had many of the guests comment, not only to us, but also to our daughter and son-in-law, on the variety and the pace at which it came out,

The food was amazing and we have had many of the guests comment, not only to us, but also to our daughter and son-in-law, on the variety and the pace at which it came out, even when you were held up with the speeches, to the basket of nibbles you put together for the bridal party to take with them when having photos. Thank you, it was all delicious.

The biggest thanks I can give though is to you. You were there for me when I needed advice, when I had questions I needed answers to, you gave me so many suggestions to make the day better, suggestions that we had not thought of, or you were just simply there for me to talk to. Again thank you so much. I certainly will highly recommending you and your company whenever I hear of people in need of some catering.

Our very best wishes,
Peter and Mandy"

Hi Jenn
I would like to thank you for the great catering you supplied for our daughter Lisa’s Engagement party in January, 2015. You had come highly recommended by our youngest daughter who went to a great 30th birthday party for which you catered and that recommendation was thoroughly deserved.
I was particularly impressed with your staff, Maxine, Anna and Sharyn. Many of the guests commented on the excellent food and service provided. The three ladies were outstanding. They were on time to set up the bar and kitchen equipment and delivered food and drink smoothly throughout the evening.
The best part was that they took the initiative, where necessary, and were determined to help me so that I could simply focus on the guests. This was the first time that I had ever had a catered function and the experience was excellent.
We will certainly be recommending Party Food Melbourne to our friends and would be delighted to use

Thank you Jenn for being so helpful over the phone and on line. It was great that you were able to advise my daughter even though she lives and works overseas. You made it all run so smoothly.
Many thanks also to Gil who was very efficient at setting up and picking up.
Everyone in your company who we dealt with was so friendly and helpful.

Hi Jane,

Hope you had a lovely weekend, I sure did!

The caterer was absolutely fabulous. She worked tirelessly for the 3 hours and always had a smile on her face.

Food was good, there wasn't much left by the end of the afternoon which was great because it meant we had just enough. Desserts were lovely too. I managed to grab a lemon meringue. I don't know if it was just me but it tasted a little like plastic. Could have been my under nourished taste buds though on the day.

Overall it was a great event which was made so much easier with your help. The bride to be was thrilled.

Thanks again, will definitely recommend!

The taste in the cake was exceptional. Not only was the sponge just right but the five layers of orange cream made it all the more tastier! Eating seconds was not hard and it lasted for two days. (Could even be used as a wedding cake for those non-fruit cake lovers) Jenn's ideas were very helpful. Thanks Jenn!

Thanks so much for your help organising my mother-in-law's 90th on Oct 6th - it all went down very well and Andrea was fabulous!

Thanks again! Susie

Hi Jenn,

Thanks very much and I would have no hesitation recommending your services to others.

Have a great day

Hey Jen

Thanks. Your team did a really great job on Thursday. It was such a difficult day, having the reception back at our place, but Sharon and Nicola just made it all happen. We made the right decision, it helped our Ballarat family as they did stay overnight in the end. The extra food helped - thanks for the advice on that one!

I'll bring the glasses back tomorrow, thanks again

Hi Jane,

I just wanted to thank you and the team for helping make the engagement night such a special occasion. The food was great and the service was EXCEPTIONAL!

The girls in the kitchen did an amazing job (even with a broken oven door) and you could tell that they just wanted to ensure the night went smoothly for us. They were friendly, warm and went above and beyond. You couldn't fault them.

The bar staff were just as equally impressive. If people weren't coming to them, they were roaming to ensure everyone’s drinks were topped up and even cleared some glasses away (which as you know, we were told not to expect) so I was very pleased with the service.

I only wish that I had more time on the night to speak to them all and compliment them on the amazing job they were doing.

Everyone on the night and the following days have raved about them.

PS. The Oreo pops were a HUGE hit! They looked fantastic with the engagement logo on them as well! We couldn't have been happier!

(End of year Christmas party catering provided. Testimonial posted on Yellow Pages, thanks, Lexey)

I wanted to let everyone know how wonderful Jen was and how fabulous the food was that she and Gil supplied. The sushi was good and fresh and obviously made by a Japanese sushi chef, the sandwiches and rolls were fresh and tasty, and the croissants and meat platter were my favourites... My guests said how good the food was - and that's what I need to hear. Good quality food. Can't recommend Jen and her team highly enough. Thanks for helping me with my Christmas party! Lexey

Lexey S.   

Hi Jen,

As you would know, it's been a very hectic time, I Just wanted to say a very special thanks for all your help. You were right, more people did stay after the ceremony because of the lunch timing. I think we had about 150 people stay in the end.

The girls where great & left the (church) kitchen spotless.

There was so much to handle on the day, it was just a relief not to have to even fetch cups of tea, let alone all the food.

It meant a lot to our family to have such a streamlined and professional job done, even the little things like glassware and food for the kids.

Thanks again, hopefully it will be a happier occasion we book you for next time,

Warm regards, Annie (and family)

PFM were able to put together an amazing and truly memorable event for our daughter's 18th party. From the very first enquiry call we knew we were in capable hands- Jessica was prompt and organised in providing us with all the contacts we needed for the DJ and Photo Booth and she was able to make perfect suggestions for catering options and security for the door. She did all the groundwork for providing a marquee and rental of the bar and furniture for the evening. And the personal touch of coming to our home a week before the party to give ideas of what we would need for the evening and how the decoration could be achieved was imperative to the smooth running of the event. On the day itself she and Jen waved their magic wands and created a party wonderland worthy of the occasion. The decoration was exemplary, truly magical and a testimony to their hard work.

My kitchen was filled with staff on the evening who effortlessly managed to cater for 100 plus young people and the bar was run super efficiently.
Our thanks to you all for making this event so stress-free for us so that we were able to enjoy such a milestone in our daughter's life. We couldn't recommend you more highly. And the fact that you were able to throw this all together for us at such short notice (2 weeks) is outstanding!"

Everything went well on the day. Hermoine (hope I spelt her name correctly) was lovely, with the service to guests being timely, seamless and friendly. Everybody clearly enjoyed the food as the serving plates were emptied very quickly throughout the day.

Thanks again for the service. We would certainly use you again and recommend you to others.

"Dear Jane,

I would like to express how impressed and happy I was with your kind friendly service with catering for Kate and Adams engagement on Saturday 17th October. From the time I first made contact to enquire and plan the event I felt at ease, nothing was a problem for you.
We had special requests re: intolerances for Kate, plenty of choices and options.
Making sure Kate was fed and looked after, that was noticeable by her, She really enjoyed her food, big thanks from Kate. Lovely fresh finger food enjoyed by all, great sign it was getting eaten.
We have had great feedback from our guests saying it was delicious and fresh.
Personally I would like to thank you Jane for your professionalism in helping make our event a success, you always returned calls promptly having time to chat nothing was a fuss in doing that you kept me calm, such a nice feeling your being looked after.

Hi Jenn,

Hope you are keeping well.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for the incredible job you did with the dessert bar at our wedding reception at the Park on Nov 2nd last year.

Given the last minute nature of our booking, we were incredibly impressed with your wonderful service, timeliness and proactivity in making sure we got the dessert bar of our dreams. We couldn't have been happier with the outcome, and we know it must have been an incredible hit as ALL of our guests couldn't stop talking about it.

Many thanks also for arranging the cocktail packages for us for the 2 other functions.

Once again, thanks for all your hard work. We will certainly be recommending you to our friends as they are all getting married.

Warm regards,

Nakul & Nikki

Jenn, thanks to you, Gil, Janine, Joel & Cara for an amazing Christmas Party for our team. They really needed to kick back and relax after such a tough year. It really helped set the tone for the holidays.

When we came back after the holidays, everyone was still talking about the chocolate fountain and the pinata with the 'special message' you organised for the troups. Apart from a few empty glasses, we wouldn't have known you were in our kitchen the next day!

Book us in (date) next year, Jenn!!

"Good Morning Jane

Oh my God, what a great job your company does. I have to admit the staff were fantastic I didn't even know they were there and they left my kitchen nice and clean and, the 3 girls Andrea, Hermone and Joanna were absolutely fantastic and really nice considering the vulchers we had there.

The quality of the food was fantastic, tasty and a great variety. And it was always coming out with only a very short break for our next bite.

Jane I had so many people compliment me on the staff and food on the evening.

If any person was to ask about any party or catering needs for their next special occasion I would recommend you company without any hesitation at all.

Once again thank you for all you hard work and professionalism and please pass my thanks on to the three girls again as we were a rowdy group on Saturday night.

Hello

We had a fabulous night!
Plenty of food and Maxine and Andrea were lovely.
They went about their job quietly and confidently.
Everything went smoothly and they cleaned up perfectly.

And of course recommend requesting Maxine and Andrea if they are available.
