Chriso catered for an intimate family gathering for my mothers 80th birthday at our home. Catering for a few 80 plus family members, as well as vegans, men who like to eat meat and fussy young girls at the one occasion is no easy feat. Chriso was very accommodating with the individual cuisine requirements so everyone was very happy. As the evening came to a close mum said that the food was 'magnificent' - quite a statement for someone who just eats roast and gravy. I found that Chris was easy to communicate with in the planning stage. He was impressively organised throughout the food preparation, cleaning as he went so our house was left spotless. The service of food delivery was seamless and impeccably presented. His skill as a chef was evident with every dish perfectly cooked, seasoned well with flavours and textures well balanced. Chriso made our event a memorable and outstanding success. As the old saying goes ' you only get what you pay for' and ' the memory remains long after the cost is forgotten' - we will never forget each outstanding food option we were offered. I can't wait to use Chriso again and am so pleased I didn't consider a more 'economical' but less classy catering option.
I just wanted to thank you for the dinner you cooked for Geoff’s 60th on Saturday night; it was truly an amazing meal which made the night. You delivered well beyond my expectations and had everyone talking the next morning how great it was. To have someone come in, cook and serve that meal and then leave with the kitchen looking the same way it was when you got there is someone who is clearly at the top of their game. You should be very proud of the service you provide and I would recommend it to anyone who asks. Thanks again Chris.
I just wanted to send you a quick message to let you know how much I enjoyed my birthday party last Friday night. The food and your service was absolutely faultless and I know all of my guests thoroughly enjoyed everything also. You left the kitchen cleaner than when you started! I will certainly be in touch when we have another function private or business for catering. Thanks again.
Carole and I along with the whole team at First National would like to thank you and your team of Thyrze and Meg, for a wonderful Christmas party. You seamlessly moved in, prepared and served a magnificent meal, and left without trace. The fact that it was all done without any stress from our side was only surpassed by the quality of your food, and the attentive service from you and your team.
We have all been talking about your meal, and it seems that everyone has their particular favorites, but we all loved every course. We will highly recommend you simply because you are very good.

Chriso catered for my husband's 50th birthday dinner while we were holidaying in Port Douglas. He was awesome. We were a group of 12 and it was a very personal celebration. Chris created an amazing degustation menu. Everyone absolutely loved the food and the service was excellent. It was so special. On behalf of all our friends that night, thank you. You deserve every success in the future.
Chriso, your food was stunning and imaginative. The reaction from our guests said it all - many complimented your food and service as better than any wedding they had ever attended. I would wholeheartedly agree with them. Well done - and every success for your future in business.
We cant thank you enough for you hard work and amazing service at out wedding. There is not one person that we talk to that does not comment on how amazing the food was. So many people have mentioned how professional and lovely yourself and all your staff were. Thank you for being so professional and just a lovely and easy person to get along with. Thank you for embracing the rain, we honestly couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks again for everything.
Regards and Best Wishes. Ben & Mel
Thank you so much Chriso for catering our wedding reception dinner. We were treated to the most amazing banquet of pork belly, scallops, filet mignon, duck, creme brûlée and chocolate frangelico mousse. Every course was delicious! Chriso was such a pleasure to talk to while he cooked and so friendly. So highly recommended by us and all of our guests!
The food for Chris and Pam's wedding was amazing. Every person sitting around me thought the food was the best they had tasted at any event. As Chris's mother, I am more than happy to recommend you and your service to anyone wishing to book catering for a wedding or any occasion. 10 out of 10 Chriso.
Good afternoon Chris
Suzi and I are now back in the cold southern climes……..We wanted to say how much we appreciated and enjoyed your amazing food that you served at our wedding. We cannot thank you enough for being a part of our celebration and making it so special. Our best wishes and thanks again.
Maris and Suzi
I just wanted to write to you again to say thank you so much for our wonderful anniversary dinner. You did it again ! Andrew was grinning for days after, he couldn't have wished for a better night, or better food. You delivered us an exceptional meal and a polished experience. You clearly are perfecting your craft.
We could have dined out , but then you are at risk of your special evening being spoilt by an arrogant waiter, an inconsiderate diner , or even worse, a poor quality meal. To have you exclusively look after our special evening meant knowing it was going to be perfect, so thank you again, and I wish you well with all your future endeavours.
I look forward to the opportunity one day to be able to reserve your services again.
Hi Chris, Thank you so much for everything you did for us on our wedding day. Your food was amazing, the guests are still raving about it! And the wait staff you provided were awesome. I would recommend you 100 times over to friends, family and strangers. You truly made our night amazing.
Amy and Kent
Michael and I would like to say thank you for the beautiful & amazing food you prepared and served for our special day! All of our wedding guests have said just how delicious everything was. We were so impressed with every element of the menu, food and service, and we couldn't have asked for more. We can see how much work and love went into each individual dish, and we feel you should be very proud of the high quality food and service you provide. Thank you also, for the regular contact through emails and the changes that were made in the lead up to the wedding. We highly recommend you and hopefully we will get to experience your wonderful food again in the near
From a very happy Mr and Mrs Andrejevich!
Jarrod and I would like to thank you SO much for the amazing job you did on our wedding day! Not only was the food amazing (our guests and us LOVED everything), your professionalism was incredible, plus you Jarrod was very happy you liked his choice of music whilst setting up. Thank you for supplying the wonderful wait and bar staff (the ladies looked after us so well and we're just as kind as you), and Steph loves the way you are so considerate of her whilst photographing. The thank you list could go on and on. THANKYOU!!
Once again I would like to thank you for the creating the BEST wedding meal I have ever encountered! Absolutely incredible! I still have people messaging me and commending the food, so thank you so much and a huge congratulations to you.
We sadly arrived back to reality yesterday and I just wanted to send you a quick email to again thank you for the amazing service, culinary supremacy and personal touches that you provided at our wedding function. We had every guest rave about you and the food that you prepared and served to us on the evening. As you know, we had a few fussy eaters and everyone was absolutely delighted and that made things all the more special for us. The service provided by the ladies (I don’t want to mis-spell their names) was brilliant and if you can pass on our sincere thanks to them as well, I would be most grateful. Thank you again for everything. You and your team are an absolute dream to deal with and it was our privilege to have you prepare our delicious banquet for us.
Sean and Diana

Thank you so much for the amazing menu you put together for my 50th birthday celebration. My friends and I have been raving about it since and I have to say that it far exceeded my expectations. Needless to say, it was not just the fabulous menu but in all your hard work throughout the day and into the evening, you maintained calmness and a happy and friendly disposition. A true professional. Thank you so much….
Paul & Mary
What a phenomenal day...Our Wedding was exceptional. We asked Chriso to cater for our midday celebration. Knowing the food was an equally vital part of your day, it was paramount that it was the best we could offer to our guests. The level of professionalism was only equalled by the sensational flavours that had extremely fussy people, returning for seconds and leave them with a monumental memory of our Wedding day. Thank you for making our special day sensational.
As two families staying in a holiday home with young children, it was hard to get the opportunity to go out for dinner all together. Chris provided us with out of this world food along with his expertise of the top quality produce and the cooking process. Chris was friendly, easy going and professional and the meal was delicious. By far the best evening of our holiday. We would highly recommend him to small or larger parties alike!
We traveled all the way from WA for a wedding in Port Douglas. The absolute highlight of our friends wedding day was the scrumptious food. Our only disappointment was the fact that we simply didn't have enough room to fit the most amazing food in. Chriso your a wonderful humble chef. Your team made the wedding a relaxed yet professional atmosphere. Can't highly recommend you and your team enough. Just wish we could take you over to WA.
A big thankyou Chris, was so lovely to have someone so friendly and easy going at our special occasion. Everyone was so impressed with the quality of food, the amount of food, yourself and your staff. Your arrival at 12.00pm ensured everything was fresh and all prepared for our guests by 6.00pm. The only complaint I have was that our guest where full, because the food tasted so good, they could not stop eating.
Highly Recommended. A delicious experience. Definitely 1st Class in everyway. Thanks Again
Victoria & Todd and all our guests
Another wonderful event catered by Chris, just wanted to say a big thankyou for catering for my 50th a few weeks ago, what a wonderful night had by all and as usual the food was delicious, fresh and tasty. My parties are always a success with you there looking after my quests appetites.
On SAT 25/07/15 I attended my friend’s wedding in Port Douglas (Aaron and Amanda) and I’ve been meaning to email you ever since as we are still talking about how amazing the food was! The service, friendliness of yourself and staff, the quality, presentation and taste of the food was nothing short of spectacular and ultra professional – I’ve worked previously in hospitality/Alice Springs Conv. Centre and everything was just truly super impressive! Such a credit to yourself and team!
I wish to let you know how very much I enjoyed my 80th birthday! The food was just superb! A wonderful and varied menu - beautifully presented.You, yourself so completely organised, cool and in control. A real MASTER! Everyone was so relaxed because you were so confident. It was a joy to watch you prepare it all. You are THE BEST! Thank you sooo much for making my Birthday so very memorable. I am thrilled that Stuart found you and would recommend you for any occasion. I wish you all the best for your future.
A very belated but also very heartfelt message of thanks for the perfect meal that you created for Andrew's 60th. Everything went to plan, and the evening couldn't have been better, with everyone in agreement. Andrew has been raving to everyone who has been asking him about his birthday since we returned, and he cannot speak highly enough about the wonderful experience you provided on his special day.
I thank you again for helping me provide him such a memorable day, that has him talking about it as much as he does, a clear indicator to me of what a success the meal was. I wish you well in your future endeavours, and all the success you so clearly deserve.
Kindest Regards, Belinda Taylor
Hi Chris, I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you on behalf of Kane and myself for your amazing food at our wedding. The feedback from our
guests was outstanding. The food you provided to us was not only delicious but very very plentiful! We got great feedback from both the
vegan and vegetarians at the wedding on the lovely dishes you served them also.
It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you, you have gone above and well beyond what any bride and groom could expect for their wedding catering. If any couples are contemplating Chris for their wedding chef take it from us - go right ahead you will not be disappointed!!!!
Jess and Kane
Pete and I wanted again to say a big thank you to you and your team- we had a fabulous wedding day, and your food was amazing! We had so, so many compliments and everyone said that yours was the best wedding food they have ever had. So thank you for your part in making our day perfect! Your waitstaff were also amazing, nothing was too hard, and they were all very attentive so please pass on our gratitude to them as well. And finally, thank you for recommending Kellie to us- her help on Saturday was invaluable to us, and she made everything run smoothly.
Thanks again, Kathryn and Pete
Will, myself and our Melbourne guest would like to thank you for a memorable dinner. We felt very spoilt to have had you as our Personal Chef to cook in our home for our special occasion.
We admire your professionalism, your friendliness and the creativity you put into your menu. The dishes were prepared with élegance and were extremely delicious. We loved those scrumptious Double Crumbed Camembert with that superb berry sauce. The Scallops were refined and full of flavor, the Crab Tian and the Lime Tempura Prawns were masterpieces. The Orange Braised Duck is unforgettable and your Chocolate Foundant desert with all the creative trimming was another masterpiece to die for.
We hope that another special occasion will arise for us soon, then we will be delighted to enjoy your culinary expertise once again.
Thank you for a memorable food experience.
We wish you all the very best
Will and Marie-André
I would like to thank you so very much for your wonderful performance with the delightful menu of delicious and very interesting tastes that you prepared for my Birthday. Several of our guests are still talking about your generosity. And of course thanks also to lovely Meg who sailed sweetly thru the throng. I hope some day I will have the pleasure of your company and talent once again.
Wow, wow, wow! Chris, that's all I can say about how amazing you and your food was. You were an absolute pleasure to have in my home. The whole night was just perfect! Thank you so much for your professionalism, your friendly manner and your skills. We will definitely have you back at some stage in our lives, hopefully sooner than later.
Thank you SO much. People are quite literally RAVING about the food at the wedding. You did such an amazing job and I am just so grateful that you were able to do the food for out big day. Everyone absolutely loved the banquet-style meal, the flavours and the combinations (not to mention the serving sizes!). We can not thank you enough. The staff were also wonderful and everything just seemed to run so smoothly.
Our very best regards,
Libby & Jurjen
It was lovely to have met you last Thursday night at our event at the AJ Hackett Venue.
This is to say a big THANK YOU. Your food was absolutely delicious and special mention was made from everyone about the sweet thai curry.
The wait staff were excellent, and you were brilliant too. A pleasure to work with and the night ran very smoothly.
Many thanks again..... all the best!
Michael and I would like to thank you so much for the amazing food for our wedding. Our friends and family are still commenting on the food and Michael still goes as far to say it is by far the best food he has ever eaten! Thank you also Chris for all your help and suggestions in the lead up to the day, you made planning my wedding very easy and enjoyable.
We already have family members looking to book you again soon. Thank you so much again!
