Raving Client Reviews

Today Matt from Graz'n Gourmet assisted with his chef skills for a presentation with a major corporate client. Matt was perfect for the project, involving 1 day of prep and 1 day of presentation kitchen work. Everything went to plan and the presentation was a major success. Thanks Matt, it will be a pleasure to work with you again in the future.

We had “Hire a Chef” completely cater our wedding last weekend and couldn’t recommend their live food stations and premium bar service more highly. Thank you to Matt and his team for allowing our perfect wedding vision to come to life!

Thank you so much for such an amazing event. Everyone loved the food and our long list of allergies were catered for with ease.

The staff were very friendly and looked after everyone and everything from set up of the cutlery / plates and cutlery on the tables to serving canapés and drinks and cleaning up when lunch was finished.

There was so much food left over we enjoyed it for the next few days.

It was such an enjoyable experience I would recommend Hire a Chef to anyone looking to cater a party and enjoy the event.

Thank you to Matt and the team! the birthday girl, myself and our guest were so impressed with you and your team! right from the very beginning everything was just with ease, that I got a bit worried because I was thinking it's too good to be true, surely it can't be this easy, but wow, now the food, the food was amazing, great quality food and tasted delicious!

the service on the night, everything was on point, you allowed me to relax and enjoy the night, the waiters were super friendly and very attentive. and the best part was walking into my kitchen and it was sparkling clean, like as if you didn't just a full operation of serving a 3-course meal.

again, thank you thank you thank you, and apologies for the long read.

We booked Hire a Chef to cater for our family dinner while on our holiday in the Blue Mountains in July. We chose to have a private chef as it enabled our family to relax and not be in the confines of a restaurant (we have three grand children 2, 8 and 10 years). It was the best decision! Chef Nino and his amazing assistant Tayane arrived with bucket loads of food. The grazing platter was amazing, mains fantastic (best gratin ever!!) and plentiful and the desserts heavenly.We will definitely be contacting Matt to cater our next family celebration. Thank you Nino and Tayane for a wonderful night.

Matt and his team did a fantastic job of catering for our wedding. The food was amazing, plenty for everyone and they catered really well for our vegan friends too. It was really simple to arrange and they worked seamlessly on the day. We could not have been happier, highly recommended!

I was absolutely impressed with the service and the food served by Mathew with Hire a chef. I firstly never thought there was such a thing to hire and have chef come to your home to serve for a function. I was excited to find that Hire a Chef would do just that. I recently organised a hen's night at an Airbnb in the Blue Mountains and organised for Mathew to come and serve three courses for a large group of ladies. The food was spectacular, the service was amazing, we had a waiter to serve us and best of all clean up. We didn't have to lift a finger. Thankyou Mathew for creating a truly memorable night and experience. I highly recommend Hire a Chef and will use this service again in the future.

Hire-a Chef catered the reception after our son's garden wedding. Matt was great to communicate with, always quick to respond and helpful with suggestions and lots of options and choices. We wanted a casual feel so had canapes which were provided over a three hour period. He adapted some of my food choices to suit our vegetarian guests and the chef and waitress on site were very professional but also very friendly and the food was fabulous and plenty of it. Every guest I spoke to afterwards commented on the quality of food. Everything was made from fresh ingredients on site and tasted delicious and the kitchen was left clean and tidy and all guests satiated after a lovely celebration. Would definitely recommend Matt and his team. Thanks for making this special day a success.

We had Mat and his team put on a NYE party for around 50 of us in December 2019 and it was fantastic!We took a canapé + substantial + grazing platter food package and even with our last minute extra guests there was more than enough. The food was gourmet and delicious, beautifully presented as well.Our waiter and barman were great, very professional, helpful and friendly. We had a BYO bar package we were all very impressed with the bar set up and Javier who managed to keep everyone topped up and made great cocktails!Also l, Mat was so easy to deal with for the organisation of the event, especially as I did it all from overseas. 10/10 would recommend and will use Hire A Chef again! Thanks Mat and team!!

Matt was easy to liaise with to arrange our catering for a family Christmas event. He was happy to accommodate last minutes requests. On the day of the event, Matt & his team were punctual, food was great and went out as scheduled enabling our event to go smoothly. I received great feedback from our guests regarding the food and they asked for Matt's details for their own future events. I would highly recommend Hire A Chef Catering.

Hire a chef recently catered our cocktail style wedding and what a huge success it was! They came highly recommended from a family friend and I am so glad we had them their on our big day. From the first point of contact Matt was helpful and patient when I continuously bombarded him with questions, always answering quickly and making suggestions.The food itself was absolutely delicious with so many guests making comments! They continuously covered every inch of the space so no guest was left hungry.The team also went above and beyond to ensure I was eating throughout the night as they could see how busy I was.And lastly a special thank you to Tenielle for putting aside some lamb for my 18 month old son to have for dinner as he seemed to only live off breadsticks all night. It was so lovely of her to take such good care of us all.Thanks again guys!

Matt catered my Wedding in May 2017. He was absolutely amazing! He accommodated everything I wanted. We had an antipasto table for entrée and an alternate drop for our main course. He even went the extra mile and organised an antipasto basket for the bridal party to eat whilst having photos. The food was so delicious and it looked amazing as well! Thank you for all your hard work! Ben and Ash x

Matt provided the lunch for our society's 70th birthday party for 100 people. From the first time we contacted him, Matt was prompt, helpful and reliable. (And very supportive as I organised my first big function since my retirement ). Also, he understood that working with a committee is not always plain sailing.
On the day , he was there nice and early and had everything set up
And ready to go with absolutely no fuss. He even helped us put a few chairs outside. And now the food - he had helped us sort out a great menu on paper and the reality was even better. Very tasty Moroccan lamb, great moist roast beef and a vegetarian Pumpkin and pea risotto that everyone wanted to try. There was not one complaint about the food; everyone loved it. Our day was successful and Matt's attitude and the food he served were a big, big factor in that success. Thanks, Matt.

Hi Matt

Just wanted to send this email to say a HUGE THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the fantastic meal you prepared for my mother in-laws 80th Birthday last Saturday night. Everybody at the table absolutely loved the food, there were so many comments on delicious it was. I was amazed at how prompt your arrival was & how organised & efficient you were in preparing the food. Also a BIG THANK YOU to Bree who served the food & waited on us for the evening, her friendly & happy attitude, along with her attentive & efficient service also helped make the night memorable for everyone. Most importantly of all, my mother in-law was thrilled.

Once again thank you, I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone.

We wish you every success for the future.

With gratitude
