The food was absolutely amazing, the team were great and we didn't have to lift a finger all night. I would highly recommend them and will use them again! Thanks so much Stephen - can't wait to work with you again! Maybe another gathering of our crazy 'family!"

  • Destination Wedding

    "If I could give Stephen & his team 10 stars I would in a heartbeat. They were THAT amazing! Every menu item we had was exceptional; it was honestly one of the best meals of my life! The quality behind every element, from each & every ingredient, the service, & the passion behind Stephen's work is truly incredible. We are from California & had a destination wedding in New Zealand, so we did not do a tasting, we just put complete trust in Stephen. I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding meal one to remember! I am still dreaming about it... Five stars will never do that meal justice! THANK YOU Stephen & the whole Free Range Chef team"
