Although I am not a trained chef, I do know delicious when it smacks me in the tastebuds. I love making people happy and hearing feedback about my cooking, which is the reason why I love my job!

Here are a few comments about what people have said (real live people, I didn’t make this up) after they have eaten my cooking.

GingerCrunch

“Can take or leave the Salted Caramel Slice, but that Ginger Crunch is something else!

MorningTea

“Thanks Gina for the beautiful and yummy muffins and slices for our convention on the weekend!
So many great comments: I think the Salted Caramel Slice was a favourite. I’m glad I’ve finally tried the ‘famous’ slice’ and will definitely seek more in the future.
Your fresh coffee scrolls were also ‘to die for’.
Friends, I can recommend all these delights!”

“Her food is incredible! I’ve had several onion free things that tasted so delicious it seemed too good to be true. But it wasn’t. She’s a flavour magician!

13/2/18…Jo chatting to Sue on FB

“Just a huge thankyou for all your hard work along with your assistants who seem to go above and beyond what was expected of you all.

Just like your other guests everyone is raving about how great the food was and what a good time they had at the party.

Having you involved made such a stress free event for me and Kevin and I wouldn’t hesitate to use your services again or recommend you  to anyone.

19/12/2017…Jen’s 60th birthday

“So far tonight we’ve tried the spinach & cheese triangles, the scrolls, the cookies and the granola. All outstanding, you managed to reach granola perfection, it’s the most wonderful mix of crunchy, clumpy and not too sweet. I am feeling like the luckiest person to have come across your talents. Thank you!

“Thank you SO much for yesterday! Our clients absolutely LOVED the food! A comment from one of our contractors: “That was some of the best catering I’ve ever had!”.

“Once again your staff luncheon was met with high praises and lots of very positive feedback.  Our Principal commented more than once on how delicious his lunch had been.”

-1/5/2107…about my Salad box trio and Carrot & Parsnip Soup/Pesto Scroll lunch combo

The tartlets I liked most were the olive ones and the pea and feta ones. The cardamom shortbread glitter cookies were yum. Everyone really liked the lavosh and the chicken caesar bites.  Overall it was great Gina. Thank you again. Would definitely recommend you.

-30/4/2017…about a High Tea selection

Hi Gina,
I attended the piano teaching workshop at Pat’s Music yesterday, and I did wish to pass on my congratulations for your beautiful lunch selections! It was a delightful surprise to enjoy your wonderful salads (would love to know what they are called!), mini brioche and cakes on such a hot day – such a change from the boring hard-to-eat-and-talk dry focaccias often served up at teachers’ conferences! Well done! I hope one day I may have an opportunity to secure your catering services. Meantime, I look forward to the next Hal Leonard workshop and your culinary creations!
Kind regards, Sue (January 2107)
