Hi Chris and Sarah, Thank you so much for the passport to the Moveable Feasts Food Journey. The food was delicious, particularly the blue cod and the venison pie. It was lovely to hear tales from over the years, and very exciting that a family owned business in Canterbury is doing so well and is such a big part of Christchurch & Canterbury tourism and hospitality. I look forward to continuing working with you both.
Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for the invitation to last night’s reception, which Chloe and I really enjoyed. It was great to see the venue lit up. The food was superb and it was a lovely evening. I really enjoyed the blue cod in tempura and nori and the lobster!
I wanted to say thank you for the invite to last’s night event. Paul and I really enjoyed ourselves. The food was fabulous and now I know what you mean about Food Stations. Paul and I both commented on how calm the staff were and no one seemed rattled or stressed – that’s amazing. A wonderful event – our thanks to all involved.
Hi Sarah,Thank you to you and your staff for providing such delicious food and fantastic service. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and a successful launch.
Hi Sarah, Wow, what a fabulous night!! You made everything run like clockwork and did everything you said you would do, you are possibly one of the most organized people I’ve met. We have had so many positive comments on the venue, service, and food. I’m sure you will have some spin off business from our event. The only problem is where to go next year that will be as special?
Dear Sarah, we would like to express our sincere thanks to you and your mobile team for your contribution to our successful Conference Dinner.

We appreciate your attention to detail, clear communication and the cooperative way that your team worked with us and the delegates.
