Zoe Kabila’s Wedding Kinshasa Democratic Republic of Congo
We are honoured to have been invited to Cater the Wedding of Mr Zoe and Mrs Nita Kabila in Kinshasa on Saturday the 15th of October. This was a logistical challenge which we loved, to organise everything in 2 days. On Monday morning the 10th of October, we placed all our orders in Jhb from Cape Town from the Food to the Buffet ware for 200 people. Tuesday morning Mark, Sonje, Warren, Este and Wayne were on our way to Jhb to pick up our orders, select our Fish etc and have it all packed in 29 cold storage boxes to fly up to Kinshasa with us on Wednesday morning. We arrived on Wednesday to a warm welcome and the food was taken to hotel refrigeration, everything was perfect including the Wedding Cake which survived a bit of turbulence on the flight! Thursday and Friday was spent prepping, organising and setting up. On Saturday we braved the hot weather, bumpy roads and arrived at the house with all our food. The weather suddenly changed at about 8pm and we had an almighty Thunder, Lightning and heavy Rain storm. We watched happily as the rain put out our Barbecue and wet the remaining wood and charcoal, as we had already finished sealing our Ostrich Kebabs and Beef Fillets. Phew! The Wedding was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone who helped us in the Congo. We can’t wait to do it all again.
70th Birthday Lunch Menu Harare Zimbabwe
We had a fabulous time in Zimbabwe working for the most amazing family. They took us shopping for fresh ingredients which were in abundant supply and much cheaper than we thought they would be. The fresh fish was flown in from overseas however the fruit and vegetables we bought at Fruit & Veg City were locally grown and delicious!
We cooked for 40 guests, serving an elegant Starter, Main and Dessert buffet. We went to the local hiring company, Roonie’s who supplied the Marquees, tables, linen, crockery, cutlery and glasses. The Waiters were also fantastic to work with.
Our clients treated us as part of their family and made us feel very welcome.
