Testimonials

'Delightful'

Lauren is an incredible one woman show. She not only managed my crazy booking but prepared all the food, delivered it and served it all with an amazing smile and ease which I could only ever dream about. Lauren created an amazing lunch for my 20 loud and boisterous guests. The service was delightful and the food was incredible – not only delicious and quality servings but also very reasonable. I would highly recommend Lauren, The Wingala Chef, to everyone.

'Sensational'

Thanks Lauren – there was not one out of the 120 guests at my wife’s 50th that didn’t comment on the SENSATIONAL food. Don’t know how you kept so many well-fed and happy, but it made the day (along with the cocktails!). Your whole team did a superb job. Cheers to The Wingala Chef!! Without a doubt the best catering we have had for a wine lunch. Your creativity in matching the selected wines with amazing dishes was incredible. The presentation of menus and each course was first class. Thanks for making it such a memorable event.

'Colourful and bright'

Working with Lauren was a breeze; nothing was too hard. Our wedding food was colourful, bright and absolutely delicious! It was everything we imagined and more. We’ve since ordered grazing boxes from Lauren, The Wingala Chef, and they are equally as beautiful! Lauren is organised and a dream to communicate with. We look forward to working with her in the future.

'Seamless and enjoyable'

We cannot speak highly enough of Lauren and her team at The Wingala Chef. The food at a wedding is undoubtedly one of the most important elements of the whole event and something every guest remembers, so we were very eager to get it right. The overwhelming response from our guests was – “Well presented, delicious and plentiful.” It was everything we wished it to be! Lauren made every process seamless and enjoyable; her menu selection and ideas were not only delicious, but they also reflected us as a couple and ensured there was something for everyone. The serving staff were friendly and professional, with the timing of each dish spot on. We want to thank you all for making our day taste amazing.
