James Vickers Catering

TESTIMONIALS

We can’t thank you enough for your professional approach and simply wonderful food! Everyone has been speaking in superlatives and are really disappointed that you are based in Wagga Wagga and not a whole lot closer to Melbourne, so that they could use your services for their own functions! Your staff were all courteous, respectful, friendly and well trained in their jobs and we thought they were wonderful! Every aspect of the meal has been praised!

Many thought we took a leap of faith in not having a tasting beforehand. However, due to practicalities, we felt very comfortable and confident, as soon as we met you in Albury and that we were in good hands.

Thanks again James, Anna and Eamon said to pass on their great thanks and said they had the wedding of their dreams.

James Vickers catered for our wedding of 200 people, which was conducted in a marquee at our farm - not an easy task as James did not have access to a kitchen and had to set up everything needed for cooking the food on the farm.

James did an exceptional job of catering for our wedding, and I think it was more amazing was that he created the delicious food for 200 people from a temporary kitchen. The food was delicious, particularly the finger food! The main course was interesting, modern and also delicious. The staff were very professional and efficient. James’ service was always accommodating and sincere. He is obviously a man who is passionate about creating great food, who ensures excellent service.

I was very happy with James Vickers Catering and would recommend them to anyone organising an event.

Thank you so much for coming and catering at our party! The food was outstanding and I think everyone at the party commented on how delicious the canapés were.
Your staff were just delightful and mingled unobtrusively with the guests. Apart from the fact I can no longer find anything in my kitchen, only because I cleared the benches and now have no idea where I put anything, I would not know that you had been in my house.

I have a few bits and pieces that belong to you that I will post back to you today.
I will certainly be recommending you to anyone that needs a caterer.

Thank you Again.

You and your staff were absolutely fantastic, we can not thank you enough for the amazing service and delicious food you provided us with. I had a never ending parade of people telling me how much they loved the food and how nice they thought your staff were.

I even had a few of my family members say it was the best wedding food they’d ever had, which is high praise from my family, because there’s a lot of us and we’ve been to a lot of weddings!

You were a pleasure to deal with through the whole process and you and your staff worked so efficiently on the day I didn’t even notice you pack up! It was fantastic having that part of the day go so smoothly and I would be happy to recommend you to anyone.

Dear James and Staff,

On behalf of Tyson, myself and all our friends and family we are writing to formally thank you for your amazing contribution to our special day. We truly appreciated all your assistance and professionalism both leading up to and on the day/night and we cannot thank you enough for making it what it was.

The catering for our wedding was (after my husband of course), what I was most excited about and looking forward to, and as I mentioned to you I spent much time leading up to the day drooling over our chosen menu. It did not disappoint.

The feedback I got from my guests was all very good. Your staff show maturity and professionalism beyond their years and they are an absolute credit to you. Having worked in hospitality for many years (and in the wedding industry), I can appreciate how aggravating and downright rude and demanding many guests can be. If there was any, I truly apologise, though the girls took it all in their stride.

The canapés were to die for! Most complements were for the seared scallops with chorizo (yum!). Whilst my new husband had little to do with the selection of the menu he also loved the mains, particularly the harissa chicken. Our vegetarian friends also felt they were well catered for.

The only constructive criticism I received was from a Chef and his wife; they would have liked the oysters cooler and the mains to come out closer together i.e. they felt the potatoes were an afterthought due to the delay. Having said this however, these two are veterans in the field so you have done VERY well to impress them with everything else as well as dealing with the hurdles of catering in a paddock.

I think most importantly, no one went hungry and the food and service we did receive was of high quality and very affordable! I was also personally, very impressed with the option of a cheese platter at the end, it was something I would not have considered myself but was a perfect touch!

Thank you once again.

Hi James

Tristan and I just wanted to thank you and your team for such an amazing night.

The food was absolutely delicious, especially the scallops, pork belly and chocolate mousse!

So many people complimented on how amazing the food was ( and trust me our friends really love good food).

Thank you to the girls for there service they were so professional. The ham was such a great idea, our friends were still nibbling on it at 5am. We also enjoyed the ham for lunch on Sunday.

We will definitely be recommending your catering services to friends and family.

We hope to see you again in the future :)

Hi James,

Can I just thank you again for the wonderful food you created for our wedding. All of our guests, without exception, have said it was the best food they have ever
had at a wedding!

Everyone also commented on how lovely and professional your staff were.

You and your team gave us the most perfect wedding celebration we could ever have hoped for. I can’t praise enough the quality of the food and service.

With sincere thanks and appreciation

James, we want to thank you so much for providing the beautiful food at our wedding, the catering was an absolute highlight for us and our guests. We really wanted to provide something that was a little different and that people would appreciate – the shared lunch menu was a fantastic way to interact with our guests and provided something more intimate and fun - on the day we were flooded with compliments on the menu, and the trout…..an absolute knock-out!! Not like every other wedding where the food is always the same...

You made everything so easy for us; in the planning, and especially in the lead up to the day when there is so many other things to think about. You made the food something special that we will continue to remember as a part of our day.

Thanks again James, hope to see you at another wedding soon for more of your delicious food!
