Testimonials

Let us show you how we have successfully helped customers in the past

  • Event Catering

    We celebrated the 25-year anniversary of Glenorchy Air in November. We had this in our hangar on the airfield at Queenstown Airport. I was recommended to engage Focus on Food to cater for the occasion. Everyone commented on how enjoyable the food was and their preparation and service were excellent. They had to provide their own facilities, in which to prepare the food and this had to be all pre-arranged as they were to work on the airfield and needed security passes.

    They also provided a beautiful cake which included the company logo.

    We were delighted with their help and attention to detail and can highly recommend Focus on Food to cater for your event.

    WEDDING CATERING

    Food is an especially important aspect of a wedding because everyone’s memories of the day are anchored on its quality.  We hit the jackpot by engaging Sue and Mark of Focus on Food.  All courses were of very high standard, and delicious.  The results were amazing, especially considering that the service is a mobile one; they are based in Arrowtown and our wedding was in Pegasus (North Canterbury.)  A very impressive show of culinary magic and art together.

    We are delighted by the wonderful catering by Focus on Food for our family party.  They gave really good advice about the menu suitable for the wide age range – kids to grannies – and provided for all diet choices and allergy requirements.

    The food, hot and cold, was superb and beautifully served. All the guest were delighted by delicious dishes provided by Focus on Food.

    We were impressed by the attention to detail and professional organisation of the day. It made for a very happy party as we could just relax and enjoy the time with our family and friends.

    WEDDING CATERING

    From Sue and Mark’s first consultation with us to discuss menu style and possibilities, until the last dish and glass were washed and put away at the end of a long Wedding day, their utter professionalism, skill, talent and attention to detail shone through.

    Having a wedding at home as we did, while providing a relaxed and familiar environment, can also be quite fraught. Creating the right ambience is a skill Sue lent her many talents and calm presence to assisting with table setting and superb food presentation, to making our delicious cake and ensuring the smooth running of the entire day.

    Having a skilled and experienced chef arrive to cook our carefully planned menu was a real luxury. The meat, fish, and produce were organically sourced which was a thoughtful consideration we hadn’t actually requested. We had several guests with very specific food allergies, and these were expertly and discretely accommodated much to the delight of those guests.  Mark’s food was superb, and we had many people contact us to say how much they enjoyed it…. everything cooked to perfection with a delicious array of flavours to balance the menu. The mobile kitchen is a marvel and can only be described as the ‘Tardis’! It is a mystery how so much hot food came out of such a small place to be delivered on cue when required.

    As part of their service, ‘Focus on Food’ provided 2 waitstaff who were excellent; professional, knowledgeable about the food and wine and charming.

    Anyone looking to engage ‘Focus on Food’ as their caterers for their function can be assured of a totally professional, competent team, who create great food.
