In an industry plagued with a reputation for bland one-size-fits-all buffets and redundant low quality ingredients, Savoury Chef is redefining local catering. With our non-traditional approach to customised menu planning, we focus on the individual needs of each of our clients and provide them with satisfying dishes that are fresh, unique and rich in flavour. Like you, we know that local tastes better and that quality and presentation should not be sacrificed for cost. We are turning over a new catering leaf and presenting a literally fresh approach to food service, based on employing the tried and true equation of excellent local ingredients and personalized customer service to create memorable events.
