Our kitchens are housed in a building tucked between two lovely detached houses that are day nurseries for many young children. So, what do we do that makes us so special? Work starts in the kitchen at any time from 4am to 7am. Deliveries are received, checked in and stored appropriately. What does this mean? The temperature of fish and meats are checked and recorded – all other foods are checked for freshness.
Any damaged fruit and vegetables or meat/fish not at the right temperature are returned to the seller. This ensures that the chefs are cooking with quality foods. Head Chef Trevor believes that the best quality foods in the hands of top chefs gives the opportunity for the best tasting dishes for his clients.
Let’s move through the week and look at examples from each catering day.
Breakfast – this is served in our beautiful conservatory on snowy white damask table cloths with quality white china tableware. Cooked breakfasts are for the hungry person, eggs, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans, black pudding, sausage, tomatoes and toast, all washed down with coffee or tea. Or delicious hot pancakes with crispy bacon, cream and syrup. Alternatively, a lighter breakfast for people who prefer, of porridge, cereals, fruit, croissants with fresh juice, tea and coffee. Toast with marmalade or jam are offered to all.
For a morning meeting your breakfast can be delivered to your place of employment within the local area, again this is a popular option and can be a relaxing social start to the beginning of your day.
Children’s meals. The chefs take pride in cooking delicious dinner and tea for each of the children in our day nurseries. They are delivered daily with the children frequently chanting ‘hooray dinners arrived’.
Lunches at home or work, served hot or cold, buffet or set meal, are a regular request and again offer a social break within the working day.
Awards Evenings – fantastic meals are prepared for 4 – 500 people. What is more exciting than to be sitting at a table with 10-12 people each being served a mouth-watering plate of food comprising of either fish, meat or vegetarian, whilst waiting excitedly to find out who has won the prestigious awards in the local community.
(Jace Catering won 2018 best Food and Hospitality Business, awarded in November 2017).
Weddings and Celebration Parties – there are no set menus or numbers for these events they are according to the wishes of the clients. Our chefs are very talented and will make every effort to please the client giving suggestions according to their needs. The Operations manager, Candice will sit with the clients, showing them various seating arrangements, suggesting different colour schemes, food, wine and soft drinks.
A Funeral or Wake – events for these sad occasions are again orchestrated by Candice who can share an understanding with the family that has lost a person dear to them and can sympathetically help them to choose their food and drink for the wake.
Barbeques – for any number of people, young or old. From steaks to fish, beef burgers to vegetables, sausages and lashings of gorgeous fresh salads and crusty breads, good wine and soft drinks which will help to wash the food down apart from leaving a wonderful flavour in the mouth.
As you can tell we are able to cater for all functions and events, all numbers of people both large and small groups from family meals at home, to corporate hospitality, weddings and other seated banquets. We use the finest ingredients sourced from the local community thus helping to boost local businesses. Our staff team is small, but all believe in creating memorable experiences for all clients and being fair, honest and committed. Our evaluations have been fabulous, two, are posted below.
