*Testimonial from the Dutch Embassy – VIEW

I would like to commend Clare and her team at Appetite caterers for the truly wonderful 2 course dinner they prepared for us last Friday evening. My husband prevailed upon me, at short notice, to host two visiting American professors for dinner, so I persuaded him to allow me to hire a caterer.
I googled “caterer in Rondebosch” and found Clare! What a relief as the caterer I usually used seemed to have disappeared.

We had the Roast Fillet of Beef with Mushroom & Green Peppercorn Sauce, Roast Potatoes & Seasonal Vegetables and a delectable orange dessert with fruit salad. The entire meal was beautifully prepared and simply delicious.
I can highly recommend Appetite Caterers, their cuisine is absolutely fabulous and well worth what we paid!!

Hi Clare
I just want to thank you for organising a wonderful party for us on the 3d of December.
Our guests loved the food and of course the bitterballen. I thought the Nasi Goreng was wonderful.
Also the organisation of serving the food and the bar went very smoothly.
Thank you once again for your excellent service and attention to detail.

– With best regards, Paul Honig

Well done to Clare and her amazing team! A 100 year birthday is worth celebrating in style. When my mother turned 100 in February this year, we entrusted Clare to do the catering. She did not disappoint us. The meal was splendid, the presentation superb, the timing and service excellent. Her waiters are top class, well trained, attentive and anticipated our every need. Thank you so much for making a special occasion extra special.

Thank you so much for our delicious lunch! I think you must have noticed it was appreciated by the cleanlinesss of the plates. The salmon could not have been more succulent and the room temperature was a triumph, so much nicer than fridge cold. Pudding lovely, elegant and tasty. We hope to recommend you to others. Thank you also for managing so well without a kitchen, it all went very smoothly.

Once again thank you very much for catering last night, as you saw lots of women loved the snacks and presentation so hopefully you will hear from them soon! Your assistant (I am sorry I don’t remember her name!) was very professional and did a fabulous job. Will be in touch again soon I am sure.
– Julie Ranzani

I really enjoyed working with the chef. She is on the ball and helpful also beyond her main priority (food). Same goes for the waiter and barman.

Thank you very much for all the ‘special treats’ and wonderful lunches that you have provided for the teachers at various events of mine over the past 6 years.
– Rene – UCT

Thank you so much for catering for us last week. The food was fantastic and the day a complete success. The biggest hit was your vegetable lasagne. Everyone wanted more which was a bit of a problem for me as I was hoping to continue eating it for a few days. It was totally divine… which brings me to the my question. Please please please could you give me your recipe. I am a hopeless cook and there is no fear of me going into competition with you. However, one of my goals for this year is to up my cooking skills and being inspired to do something one likes will make it easier. I would so love it if you could share the vegetable lasagne secret.
Many thanks again for ensuring everything went smoothly on the day.

Our honeymoon was amazing, and made all the more special because of our fantastic wedding day! People have been raving about the food and the service, and just how incredibly hearty the meal was. It was a true feast – we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for understanding our needs so well, and for accommodating us. I hope that you had everything that you needed at the venue? Everything seemed to go so smoothly the waiters all looked incredibly professional in their “Appetite” aprons. The day went by so fast for us, but some of my favorite memories revolve around dishing up portions of of all my favorite foods and looking down the tables and seeing how enthusiastically everyone was tucking in!
Let me know if you would like a write up for your website or any other special info – will be shouting your name from the rooftops!!

– Stacey

Everything went really well and the platters were a great success – as usual.
Dr Jo Burgess from the Water Research Commission said to me that it was always a pleasure having lunch with us as it is always so tasty and different each time.
Thanx Clare and team – you ROCK!!!

– Christine Olsen

I hope you’re well and that you survived the Cederberg expedition!
Pierre and I really want to thank you and your wonderful team once more for the amazing service and food you provided at our wedding. It was absolutely delicious and exactly what we had hoped for! Guests raved about everything, from the lamb to the salads to the breakfast the next day. I believe the setting wasn’t the easiest to work in, but I hope that you didn’t face major hiccups – and if you did we didn’t notice anything!
A million thanks again. Have a wonderful evening.

– Gwen & Pierre
