“Have kit, will travel” is the mantra of Twentyfour Catering. Weddings all over the South Island are a speciality, and owner and chef Chantelle Quinn can conjure the feast of your dreams anywhere, often with just two ovens and a barbeque.
“We are very versatile and we have said yes to every location so far.”
Chantelle works closely with couples to ensure logistics work and menus are personalised to each wedding. Chantelle remembers a groom who asked for his grandmother’s adored salted caramel and pistachio cheesecake, so she created it in minis for his guests.
The food is classic French with Kiwi flavours, rustic, often with a lot of protein. Six different meats could feature throughout the reception, which goes down extremely well with rural weddings.
I love seeing a wedding guest in an exquisite dress and fascinator tucking into a lamb cutlet and going back for more.”
