Friday 13th, unlucky for some, not for Zenith Interiors

The Small Food Caterers have again helped Zenith Interiors, Adelaide, celebrate another year with customers and staff. For the last 3 year we have created custom menus to suit a themed party. This year it was HORROR and it was held at their office on Pultney street.

Goullie treats

We created a number of menu items that tasted great and matched the theme. We also had some favourites to make sure everybody was well catered for. You know how fussy the dead are. 

Our Staff got right into it

Nights like this are always better when more people get in on the act. It was good to see our staff really take part.

A very special thanks to Verity, Jessy and Haydie who work hard at the bar. To Will, Lene, Andy and Cheryl for serving and to Anna, Lou and Maggie who made it all happen in the kitchen.

Everyone had a ball

Zenith put on a great show. A lot of preparation goes into the event and they make sure each event is a night to remember.

We take it as as a great compliment that they have used the Small Food Caterers for the last three years. We look forward to the event and enjoy the opportunity to be creativity.

Thank you Ammie and all the team at Zenith for the privilege.

Here is what Zenith had to say

"You guys are so easy to deal with"

"Great Food"

"Next year the theme is going to be ..."

A fun week of catering in Adelaide

We had such a fun week at the Small Food Caterers that we thought we might quickly share the highlights of the week with everybody.

Having fun at the Adelaide Farmers Market

It was off to the Adelaide Farmers Market on Sunday to sample the wares of a number of primary produces from the Fleurieu Peninsula. We had been ask to prepare a canapé menu to show case the produce of the Fleurieu. There was no time to waste as the event was to be held on Saturday night. It was a great way to start the day, as the whole family are a bunch of foodies and we meet some fantastic people.

Dinner for RSM Bird Cameron

A new customer, RSM Bird Cameron, got in touch with the Small Food Caters to prepare a special menu for their key customers. Event like this are always fun as we get a chance to interact with our clients as they enjoy the personalised service, menu and food that The Small Food Caterers provide. Narelle from RSM sent us the following note after the event.

"Thank you for last night, it was amazing and the food was unbelievable"

Welcome Anna to the team

We would like to welcome Anna to the Small Food Caterers team. Anna started this week just as she completed her patisserie training an we are delighted that she has enjoyed both the work in our kitchen and out on the job serving customers.

Lunch for the Premier and other guests

One of our regular corporate customers asked us to prepare an a la carte meal in line with their normal requirements. Our customer regularly holds lunch time meetings at their premises with guests from various organisations. This week the guest list included our honourable Premier.

Well done Renee

A very special thank you to Renee. Renee has been a regular part of the team for a number of years and has played a key part in many of our major events. On Saturday morning, Renee for the first time took the leadership role and successfully managed brunch for 60 guests. Top job Renee.

Special celebration dinner

One or our customers decided to celebrate at home with friends and enjoy the delights of our ultimate a la carte menu. A small team headed out to Modbury on Saturday night to cook up a storm.

Show casing the Fleurieu Peninsula.

As we indicated at the start of the blog, we were asked by the Onkaparinga council to put together a special canapés menu that would show case to their special guests from China, the produce of the Fleurieu Peninsula.

What a fantastic and fun challenge this was for us. All week we were trying ingredients in our favourite recipes, meeting producers and making sure that it would all come together in a manner that would delight our customer and their special guest.

At some stage in the near future we will put together a specific blog relating to this event and discuss the beautiful food we discovered and where you can get it from. We will also incorporate links to the producers and to the farmers markets where they are available.

We would like to thank the team at the Christies Beach surf life saving club for their fantastic hospitality and to their chef who allowed us to use his kitchen for the evening.

Thank you to all of our customers

It was a busy week at the Small Food Caterers, and we would like to thank all the other customers we had this week for the opportunity. We take pride in the service and food we provide and we hope that you were all delighted by both.
