André Venter

Originally from South Africa, now based in New Zealand, we are not a cookie cutter corporate business, in fact, we are the antithesis of this model. We love the challenge of creating spectacular meals which appeal to meat eaters and vegetarians alike.

Menus are customized to suit your occasion, taste and budget. Each dish is prepared with love and expertise from locally sourced seasonal ingredients. Our menus from around the world offer something for everyone.

Carnivore, Vegetarian or Vegan, we offer variety for every palate. Our menus include the finest meat, vegetarian and vegan dishes. Whether you are planning a wedding, a business meeting, fundraiser, reception, family gathering, or any other occasion, we can meet your catering needs.

Vegetarian food so delicious you won’t miss the meat! A tasty meal surely doesn’t rely on the use of animal protein alone. Also, there are so many healthy and tasteful substitutes available, the alternatives are plenty.

Being good to our environment is also very important to us. We feel doing our best to leave a beautiful earth for our children, grand-children, and anyone thereafter is the least we can do.

  • Marelize and Andre I would just like to thank you and your husband for yesterday. You were very professional you have exceeded my expectations.The spitbraai was delicious and even though I had a package that was supposed to cater for 30 people there was more than enough. We actually had spitbraai for lunch today. Thank you for being as punctual as you were. I gave you a time and you delivered.I will surely recommend your spitbraai catering service to anyone. Keep well.
