A travelling feast: Twentyfour Catering


“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.”

Out-of-this-world delicious!


For Chantelle Quinn, Director of Twentyfour Catering Co, the course of true love does run smooth. Both New Zealand’s finest produce and the people she cooks it for, occupy equal first place in her heart. “I feel so lucky to do this job,” she says.

“The quality of produce, the availability in Canterbury and the extent of free-range options means that, together with our talented team, our results are out-of-this-world delicious.”

A recent free-range plated duck dish has Chantelle’s mouth watering as she remembers it. Having had her own restaurant, she has found her true passion in catering.

“It’s so much more personal; it makes our days special when we go into someone’s house to meet and cook for them. We love the process of getting to know people and having them become completely comfortable with us in their home.”

Catering for private dining is a specialty and, as a small family business, they don’t pre-prepare menu lists.

Instead, Chantelle and her team meet you and talk about your event type, preferences and guest list, creating personalised menus from there.

“Our take on food is Kiwi style with a French influence,” Chantelle says. “We do canapes, small plates, standing events, wedding and corporate events.”

An array of trucks is not their style.

“We are more bespoke – a private kitchen, hire equipment and it’s amazing what we can do with a barbeque,” she says.

With the motto “have kit, will travel” you too can have your own Twentyfour Catering Co food affair.

Passionate foodies: Twentyfour Catering


Chantelle Quinn, owner and chef of Ashburton-based Twentyfour Catering Company bubbles with excitement when she talks about events such as the one she and her team catered for on October 13. “We simply love weddings and special events.”

“It was a local fundraiser for the Maia Health Foundation – a four-course dinner for 200 guests. A major part of our company philosophy is helping charitable organisations with their work,” she says. “The Maia Health Foundation is one such charity and Ronald McDonald House is another. Events are also a marvellous way of showcasing what we do.” The menu for the event was indeed a showcase of superbly designed and prepared dishes made from beautiful local ingredients, much of it donated by the community’s hunters and gatherers – from crayfish and paua to blue cod and fresh seasonal vegetables.

“It was a truly wonderful Spring Indulgence. At the centre of it all was our Twentyfour Catering Co’s signature dish – 21 day aged Canterbury fillet of beef with Cafe de Paris butter and shiraz jus paired with spring carrots glazed with honey and topped with toasted almonds.”  Chantelle explains that she designs all the menus and dishes for the events they have been asked to cater. “I am the first point of contact for a client and each menu is individual to that client and to the particular type of event. We are not a ‘tick the box’ catering company. Rather we take real pride in adding special personal touches to an event.

“For us it’s not only about delivering delicious food, but also ensuring that the event itself is memorable. Our food is very Kiwi, but with classic French flair and elegance. We like to call it French family style. ’ Twentyfour Catering Co are also known for their flexibility and mobility.  “We have catered for weddings from Akaroa to Wanaka, from Auckland to the Catlins. No location is too much of a challenge for us. Our mantra is ‘have kit; can travel’ – and we love being on the road. It’s amazing what you can do on a barbeque in the back yard!
