Sindiso and Edward McCann – wedding
I came across Olive Twist 6 months before my wedding. After meeting up with Ros, I knew I didn’t want anyone else to cater our wedding. Her energy and personal touch is what really drew us to her immediately. She has an special quality of making you feel at ease, and allowing you to completely let go. They are a professional caterer with a personal touch, which is very hard to come by. As my fiance is English, we wanted to have a South African and English style menu, fusing the two cultures. Olive Twist executed this brief excellently, even preparing traditional Zulu bread, called Jeqe, to the standard my mother would make. Everything was prepared and served at such a high standard, our guests are still talking about the food at the wedding. Especially the mini Yorkshire puddings! Ros, Richard and their team are such a shining example of the great talent that we have South Africa. Thank you again Olive Twist for your hardwork, and perfect execution.
Beth Eachus – wedding
Ros, I can’t tell you how thrilled we were with all the food and your service! As we thought back over all the details whilst on honeymoon, the food certainly stood out as one of the things we most enjoyed and thought went so well! All our guests raved about the food…every course in fact. Hilt and I had the fillet and fish between us and insisted on sharing both our meals so we could taste both – simply delicious! I’m sorry we missed out on the canapés – I think I should have asked you to save us some for when we got back to our room! Oh well, I will have to attend another function that is catered by your team to see what everyone was raving about. Saw some of Hilt’s friends at the airport the next evening and they all said the food was fantastic, “especially the little desserts!” We were also impressed with the well sized portions (plenty to feed those hungry men!). So a BIG thanks to you and your team for everything. I’m sorry I did not see you on the night. I would have loved to thank you in person. Anyways, hope this message will suffice until our paths cross again

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job with the catering. The overall comment of the function was that it was outstanding!
Here is Deloitte’s feedback for the cocktail menu that you catered for on 20 Aug 2008.
The food was tasty and visually stimulating.
The layout of the dessert and cheeseboard was exceptional.
The menu items were presented very well i.e. clean and easy to eat with one hand.
Ros, the overall comment of the food was superb, elegant, sophisticated and delicious.

I just want to thank you again for Saturday. What an absolute STAR Richard is!! He is so cool under pressure, he is resourceful and his creativity is endless. He went above and beyond the call of duty and his staff were very professional. Our guests have not stopped raving about how delicious, interesting and enticing the food was and the desserts!!!! Well heaven can wait! I still can’t believe that such delicacies could be created in my little kitchen!
Natalie Crook – Downes Murray Int
The response after the lunch on Friday afternoon was amazing! Everybody had very positive feedback, all different things to say, but all positive … from so much food! To awesome chicken, to how divine the beef was, and even the herb bread! Even the dessert, one lady said that she thought she had died and gone to heaven … no kidding!!!
So yes, it was really enjoyed, thanks once again for everything. The next meeting is on the 25 April – for the next one!

If you’re doing an event in Durban, Ncumisa found the most awesome caterer in Durban. The name of the company is “Olive Twist”, website is www.olivetwist.co.za and the contact is Ros, e-mail email@example.com. Ros, the owner, attends all the events she does and is quite pedantic (in a good way) about the food and presentation of food, and their staff are incredibly hard working. Reminds me of By Word of Mouth when they were just caterers.

Thank you for the professional set up at last night’s function. The layout, presentation and food was delicious.
