The beef cheek was a huge hit. Kids haven’t had it before and absolutely loved it. My son said it was the best meal he’s ever had! Like we don’t feed them well ……
Just tried one of the new frozen meals – Kumera and chickpea masala! Yum! It was delicious. And a good sized portion. Tonight I’m having the Chicken, leek and mushroom pie. Looking forward!
Just a short note to the team at Hamish Stewart Catering to say thanks for such a superb effort last week. We have hosted a fair few events and can honestly say that we have never had such terrific feedback about the quality of the food and service before. How this aspect of the event is delivered reflects directly back on us and is a very important part of our guests enjoyment of the evening, so I am very pleased to say that Hamish Stewart Catering certainly enhanced our evening and our guests experience, thanks again.

Thanks so much for masterminding our garden party. We had a brilliant time and have received many compliments about it, including of course your lovely food. John Moody + John Priestley in particular were very impressed with the quality of your waiting staff and Anne Priestley said she had never had such an efficient catering/waiting team working in her home. The young ones loved their day and it turned out exactly as they had planned, with the young families enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and a chance to eat before they packed up to go home. Thanks again for being on hand to help the Moodys out!!
Hamish, I just want to say thank you so much for the awesome bbq lunch you cooked for my birthday party. The food was delicious and presented beautifully and to have you cook onsite was just perfect. The party went fabulously well mostly thanks to the beautiful meal you served which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The waiter was great and it was so wonderful to have the kitchen all tidy when you left. I can’t recommend you highly enough and thanks again for making my day special.

What can we say…. we were blown away and it seems all our guests were too! Picking the caterers for our wedding was a hard decision as we wanted good interesting food without blowing our budget. Right from the beginning all communication with HSC was easy going and helpful. Hamish came over and did a taste test of our selected dishes and chatted about how things would go on the day. He was professional and relaxed (the ideal combo for us) and we easily trusted that all would go to plan on the day. On our wedding day the staff were absolutely outstanding. They all had great personalities, professionalism and made sure that each and every one of our guests were looked after. They left the kitchen and prep area in our house spotless. We had a stand up wedding for 120 people with canapes and 3 bowls, with plenty of food! Special mentions for the pork belly and eggplant on kumara mash bowl and the duck pancake canapes, they were amazing! One recurring comment about our wedding was ‘how amazing was your food!’ – something that was really important to us and we are really pleased that we picked HSC to cater our wedding! Thank you Hamish and your team for doing such an outstanding job!

May we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making Steve’s birthday such a special evening. You all worked so very hard. The food was
absolutely perfect: fresh, beautiful to look at and delicious. The wait staff and bar staff were impeccable. Not only were they all charming, but they were low key and extremely helpful. They cleaned up at the end and even helped me mop the floor, which I’d promised my friend Lynley I’d do. They worked longer than I thought they would and we were so grateful to them. The evening could not have passed more smoothly, and it’s all thanks to you. You’re a star! We shall be recommending you to everyone we know and will certainly use your company again. Kind regards,
Andrew and I just wanted to thank you for your amazing work at our wedding. Our guests all mentioned the awesome service and fantastic food. The meal was exactly as we hoped and imagined it would be. You guys are rocks stars. Fantastic food, and fantastic staff. We couldn’t have hoped for things to have gone any better.

When I recently had my “special” birthday I spoke to several catering companies and on the recommendation of a colleague made contact with you and I have to say, from beginning to end, the experience was flawless.
A function for 90 people was so easily organised with about two phone calls, and a few emails. The organisation and advice given to me made the planning seamless and more importantly stressless!
On the evening, the staff were immaculate, efficient, discrete but friendly and professional at all times and many of my guests commented accordingly.
The food was delicious – delicate, flavoursome, plentiful and visually attractive.
Several friends asked for your details – what better testament to a fantastic evening supported so competently by the fantastic Hamish Stewart Catering. Thank You!
Oh my goodness. I cannot thank you, Hamish and the amazing team enough for the amazing service we received on our wedding day. First of all, the food was amazing, which I already knew. Everyone was raving about it – the presentation, the flavours, the theme, everything. The mother of the baby with food allergies was especially impressed with the extra care given in providing her daughter with tomatoes and strawberries etc. Secondly, the service. Our day could have been a complete disaster if it wasn’t for your team, who helped us set up and arrange our event, and then set it all up again indoors when Auckland decided to do what it does best: change from bright sunshine to rainy showers, and back and forth again. And they always did so with a smile. It made us feel so at ease because the group took control of the situation and made the day absolutely amazing. Honestly, we were so impressed that we had to toast to them during the wedding toasts! Dylan was incredible – myself, my husband and my family were so impressed and thankful. There are not enough words for me to say how amazingly brilliant, talented, and professional your team are. If I were wearing a hat, I would take it off to you! The whole process was fun and easy. Thank you so so much.
Hamish, Many thanks for the wonderful service provided by your team on our Wedding Day. We had planned an extremely personal and special day for ourselves and for those with whom we chose to share this celebration. A major consideration was “no stress” on the day and having sampled your skills at BMW events where both the standard of food and service had been impressive were confident we had the best man for the job. We were wanting to create an intimate and elegant atmosphere where everyone (especially the bride and groom!) would be relaxed and spoilt. Every aspect of our reception was catered for superbly without incident – from the delivery and collection of glasses, plates and cutlery to on site catering with our own Chef and waitresses to pamper our guests – constantly circulating with platters of food and trays of champagne. We had been treated to samples of the delightful canapés and bowl food the week before but seeing it prepared in our own kitchen in such a professional manner and then served to our guests in what seemed to be a continuous flow of fine food was amazing.

We have received nothing but compliments regarding the quality of food, its presentation and the extremely high standard of the staff who treated our guests in an incredibly special manner – right down to remembering food preferences and allergies each time they served a new dish. Outstanding in a word. Again –thank you for a truly wonderful experience – every step along the way was a joy and then finally seeing our plans come together on the day was one of those moments in life which will never be forgotten – and your team played a huge role in bringing together our perfect day. Thank you! Mr and Mrs Mactier.
