'The kitchen tour was a real ‘hit’ and a truly memorable experience. It was wonderful to be hosted so well, it is often our delegates who are doing the hosting of clients and they thought it was very special to be on the receiving end of such lovely hospitality. Thank you for delivering an extremely professional and fun experience for our delegates. The ladies who were your guides seemed as wonderfully warm, professional and welcoming as you are.'
-Jeanette Stanton, CINZ Conference Events Manager

'Thank you so much for our culinary challenge! It went really well, got everyone talking and moving around, and I heard lots of positive comments afterwards. Thank you for being flexible with us for the timing since we were running a bit late. Overall a great night and we were really impressed with how it all ran.'
