People Who Love our Food

I can cater for your canapé party or boardroom meeting food requirements. Alternatively, meals can be prepared in advance and delivered to your home, office or yacht – filling your own dishes (or ours) with a wide range of healthy, fresh and tasty ingredients.

I returned to yachting in mid June and I have been day working on anchor for the past week, prepping the yacht for charters and the owners arrival, while I look for a seasonal/temp position. I qualified as a chef in 2008 with distinction. I have honed my culinary abilities, and also gained strong guest liaison skills and administrative competencies. My career includes personal chef and catering cooking and management, cost control and purchasing, and deli restaurant chef consultancy.

During my time as a personal chef, I have enjoyed using fresh produce to cook healthy and nutritious meals, and have a wealth of experience cooking for various dietary restrictions and preferences. My style is bistro/deli cooking and I do plated meals and family service on platters to share. I like to offer a large variety of breakfast options. I have a wide repertoire of fish and meat dishes and love Mediterranean/Mexican/Middle Eastern/Indian/Asian/South African influenced cuisines. I also do a large variety of canapés and finger foods, as well as delicious baked treats and desserts.  I have a strong interest in dietary requirements, having cooked for vegan, paleo, gluten and dairy free clients.  The attached menus can easily be adapted to your specific requirements.

It has been a pleasure to have Joanne this week with us. She is a kind, proactive person, always willing to help and attend in a very gentle way. She worried about knowing our food preferences and proposed alternatives of a super level. Everything was delicious, it was a pleasure to enjoy her entrees, main courses and desserts. Her work is impeccable and delicious and her proposals are super original and taste great. We are delighted and hope to have her on another occasion! July 2019

I have been using Joanne’s catering company for many years.  She has always been consistent, provided well thought out food options and offered a great service.

Her food is always consistently delicious and presented very professionally.  She responds timeously to my requests which are often at short notice.  She takes a keen interest in my needs and requirements and provides many menu options to select from.  She is friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with.

I feel highly confident in recommending Joanne’s catering services. June 2019

Juliet Ferraz

Personal Chef Client - Cape Town

Joanne has catered many functions for us including handling the catering for our luxury yacht cruises, our corporate functions for our events as well as our personal home functions and staff functions.

We have enjoyed Joanne’s food as well as her service and personality.  No job was too great or too small for Joanne and she always went the extra mile.

Joanne was able to plan our menu choices for our catering with very little input required from ourselves and the food was always well thought out and delicious. July 2019
