TESTIMONIALS

Simone and Le Ping catered for our marquee wedding in Murwillumbah. We had 165 guests for canapés, then sit-down entrée and main. We could not fault the service provided by them, both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. It was impeccable and no detail was missed. The food service seemed effortless and it’s presentation was perfect. The generous portion sizes kept all guests happy. Above all else though, the flavour in the cuisine is divine. It was a pleasure. Ali and Dave

Just want to let you know how wonderful Natasha’s Wedding day was, and as a Mother of the Bride there is so much to think of, especially when having a Wedding at home. You came into our home and it was as if you were never there. Your staff were unobtrusive and efficient and everyone remarked on how beautiful the food was! Thank you for taking the stress out of feeding 110 guests and for making food a no fuss issue for us. Jenny

Simone and Le Ping’s food is amazing and their service is exceptional. They go over and above to make everything perfect and suited to your tastes and personality. They are so professional but easygoing and wonderful people, this reflects in everything they do. We have been overwhelmed with their efforts and would use them over and over again for any functions that we have in the future. Adrianna and Yuen

The celebration was just what Mum and Dad wanted. Thank you. We also appreciated Le Ping’s humour very much. We had many compliments about the food. Thank you to you also for the helpful suggestions in the menu. Leonora

Thank you for making our daughter’s special day even more memorable.  Nikki

Just a quick note from the airport before our honeymoon. Thank you so much for the great food and service on the weekend. Everyone loved the food, especially the lamb. The soup was also a big hit. You guys have been great. Thanks again. Katie and Andrew

We got married in March this year and were fortunate enough to have Savoir Fare Catering, Simone and Le Ping, cater our two events. The food was amazing! We had a cocktail style party with 45 guests and another had 120 guests. Not only was there a fantastic variety of food but plenty of it! We found Simone and Le Ping to be extremely flexible and obliging with our requests. We didn’t have to be locked into a package. They are both personable and professional. We received many glowing reports from our guests about how wonderful the food was. We would have no hesitation recommending Savoir Fare Catering. Thanks for helping make our day complete! Holli and Brett

Simone and Le Ping catered our engagement party. We went to them with what we believed to be a very limiting budget however it turned out to be no issue at all. They tailored everything around it and produced some of the best food we have eaten! The servings were more than ample and the service was unsurpassed we have no issue recommending them to you as we have recommended them to everyone who have asked us since. It was such a good experience we have asked them to cater our wedding too. Tahl and Katrina

I just wanted to write to say thank you for a wonderful rehearsal dinner for us and our family and friends on the 15th April. Everyone had a great night and all commented on the delicious food, fantastic wine and lovely yet unpretentious atmosphere. It was a perfect spot for us! Cheers Jodie and Brian

Hi Simone & Le Ping,

I’ve been meaning to email you all week about your catering the private dinner at our Son’s 21st. In a nutshell, it was sensational! After the excitement of our friends thinking we’d invited the winner of Masterchef to cook for us, they have all continued to rave about the fantastic flavours and tenderness of the meal! We were truly delighted with all your efforts, and the cleanup afterwards was wonderful and much appreciated. We will certainly be employing your services again. Kindest Regards, K & B

Good Morning Simone and Le Ping,
I wanted to express my sincere thanks for your professionalism right throughout the process of organising our function for Saturday night.
The food was fantastic and there were many positive comments from adults and teenagers alike. I also appreciated your no fuss approach and the
way you left my kitchen – it was spotless. We will certainly be recommending you to anyone who needs catering.
Sincerely, Kerry, John and girls

Simone, Sean and I would like to thank you, Le Ping and all your fabulous staff – kitchen and wait staff, they were all so professional, knowledgeable, attentive and friendly.  We received so many comments from our guests on the night and in the weeks following, complimenting the service and the magnificent food.  Nothing was too much trouble, your awareness of people and their needs was very impressive – as soon as our late guests arrived you ensured they had a drink and a selection of canapés that had been served! The quality of food was superb, every canapé was delicious and the Noodle Boxes were a big hit especially the Fish & Chips!  The effort you went to, to cater for special dietary requirements was amazing. Savoir Fare far exceeded our expectations in every way – we have been trying to think of another occasion that we can celebrate – just so we can use Savoir Fare Catering again!! Everything you promised you delivered, from the moment you arrived until you left. We certainly will recommend Savoir Fare Catering to everyone. Sean and Kristine

Hi Simone
I’ve been meaning to get in touch to let you know the boys were really impressed with the lunch boxes.
They all thought that the lunches were delicious and that the presentation was great.
It was a perfect amount of food and the choices were perfect.
We would definitely contact you again should we need more catering in the future.
With thanks, Susie

Hi Simone
I hope this email finds you and Lee Ping well.  I just left a message on your mobile as I was calling to say thank you for everything you did both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day.  The food was just amazing and we had so many people comment on just how delicious it was.  The staff were also fantastic and we received lots of praise for the service they provided.

I thought you’d be interested in seeing some of the photos that were taken on the day.  I’ve included a selection taken of the ceremony, bridal party, just the two of us, plus the barn and cake.   The photographer even took a beautiful shot of the tomato and bocconcini cheese canapes which I also had to share.

We are really pleased with how everything came together on the day – the food, the photos, the music, the setting, the people – were all spectacular and made our day so memorable. Kylie and Bob

The best caterers!! These guys were amazing, we had a cocktail wedding and there was so much food! Amazing amazing amazing! Book these guys! Jade and Matt

Thank you, Simone, Le Ping and Staff, for helping to make our Wedding a special event. Everybody just loved the food. We appreciate all the hard work you’ve done. Ela and David

Hi Simone
Renee and I wished to say thanks to you and Le Ping for supplying
great food on our wedding night, along with excellent service. All our
guests commented on the quality of the food and the two of us were
very happy we’d chosen you.
We loved too, the presentation and the guests really enjoyed the share platters
All the best to you both for the future Justin & Renee

I would just like to sincerely thank you for the absolutely wonderful job you did catering for my 40th birthday celebrations. As you know, it was always my idea to have an intimate and stylish function with our closest family and friends, and you and your team helped me achieve – and exceed – that vision. I had a perfect party, and the food and service you provided contributed enormously to that. I think for me the best part, aside from the high-quality food, was your attention to detail and your desire to actively help us make it a great event. As the rain poured down and we had to change our plans a little, it was so comforting to know I had the very willing assistance of every one of your team members. It was great knowing I could ask anything of anyone on your team and have it done cheerfully and quickly. Every one of our guests complimented your food and service and many asked for your details! Your team truly felt like part of the family and part of the party and that was delightful. Thank you sincerely for adding to our very special and memorable occasion. We look forward to the next one that you cater for us! Natalie

Dear Simone and Le Ping,
I’d just like to thank you for Saturday night. I’ve had lots of people comment on how good the food was and the quantity. The night was a fantastic success, probably the best Preso night we’ve had in about 8 or 10 years and you guys had a lot to do with that. Everyone was blown away by the menu, the quality, and the presentation. Also pass on our thanks to the waitresses, they coped brilliantly with the crowded room during the presentations and worked the whole room.
Once again, thank you so much for helping to make Presentation Night 2012 such a raging success. I look forward to our next function together and can’t wait for Preso 2013. Shaun

I’ve been meaning to email you to say thank you for everything!! Shannan and I really appreciated it, we couldn’t have been happier.
Mum and Dad were so pleased to meet you too.
Thank you, Sarah

Hi Simone,
I’m sorry this has come so late but we just wanted to thank you so much for your incredible food and service! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you from the moment we met you and everyone raved about your food at the wedding. Unfortunately I didn’t really eat anything but it all looked amazing! Whew what a blur it was so thank you for making it seem seamless! We will be sure to recommend Savoire Fare to anyone we know needing catering.
Thanks again and all the best, Melinda

Dear Simone and Le Ping,
Ross and I, together with Sara and George, would like to thank you so much for your input into Sara and George’s very special day. We have had nothing but glowing reports from everyone on the beautiful food, but also on the professionalism of all involved. You all worked so hard and we do appreciate your efforts. I believe you had a watchful eye on you from the in-house carpet python. You quickly took the water shortage in hand and we appreciate that.
It was a wonderful day, beautiful venue and delicious food. One of the “English” family reported the steak was fantastic and “hot”, which is great feedback.
Thank you so much and hope we can use your services again, and would recommend you both without doubt.
Kind regards, Ross and Di

Hello Simone
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for catering our Christmas party on Friday night. We had such a great time and the food and service was sensational. I have had lots of feedback from the office that they loved the food. Please pass on my thanks to Danielle and her team on the night, they were utmost professional and did a great job.
Thanks again, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and new year and I’m sure we’ll see you again soon.
Best regards, Aimee

Dear Simone and Le,
On behalf of Marc, Rebecca and the remainder of my family I would like to sincerely thank you for everything you did to make their wedding dinner a success. Your attention to detail, the quality of the food and the service you provided was exceptional and really was the icing on the cake for the day. You are undoubtedly passionate at what you do and I wish you both every success and hope we can one day work together again.
Best wishes for 2013
Kind regards, Lauren

Dear Simone,
We would just like to thank you and your team for an amazing wedding! The food was delicious and each course appeared just at the right time. Your waitresses did a great job accommodating our unique needs including vegans, vegetarians and a lack of forks! The kitchen was left spotless which made our pack-up the next day so much easier! Many guests have since raved to me about how much they enjoyed your food and how professional the dinner service was. Thanks so much!
Regards, Erin and Tim

Simone and Le Ping
A very short note to say a huge thank you for being part of our wedding. We were so blown away by your dedication to us and the quality of service and of course, the divine food. I can’t believe it’s December already as it still feels like yesterday. What a fun day! Have a wonderful festive season.
lots of love, The Dobson’s

Dear Simone and Le Ping (and team)
Thank you so much for catering at our wedding. Despite nothing going to plan, we had so many compliments about the food and were so happy with everything you did, from helping me decide the menu over numerous phone calls and emails, to generously doing Tom’s coveted duck spring rolls. We really couldn’t have asked for anything better.
Thanks again, Alex and Tom

Hi Simone,

Hi Simone,

Just wanted to check in with you and say thank you for the catering at our wedding, everyone loved it – particularly the black salmon. I think between Meg and I we had about 2 or 3 each. Everything else was great and the staff were lovely. Thank you again for all your help, you’ll be recommended by us if we are asked about catering :) Cheers, Luke.

Simone & Le Ping what can I say. Thank you for making our celebration such a wonderful night. You both made the planning so easy, your menu including the advice you gave us was excellent. All of our guests asked us to pass on their compliments on the quality of the food. This is what we knew when we first spoke to you and one of the reasons for our choice of your services. The staff that worked that night were amazing. Friendly, efficient, professional were the words that describe them. Again compliments all round from both our guests and us. Again many thanks for making the whole thing so easy for us. Regards, Paul & Cheryl

Thank you Simone….your wonderful food made it such a great day! I would have no hesitation in recommending you ….fantastic. Warmest Regards, Di

Hi Simone, Le Ping Wong & Staff.

THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts thank you.

For being the calm rock in what was a frenetic day, the voice of calm and reason, the quiet unobtrusive excellence that made our day perfect. You consistently went above and beyond our expectations in all facets of the day, from the food which was jaw dropping and the service which seemed effortless and in good grace to your support outside of the remit, helping us with our day, moving chairs and tables, lighting candles and supporting us late into the night.

I know I am a pedantic perfectionist, a planner and a lover of details, this makes me immediately at best annoying. Thank you for always receiving my e-mails with good grace and replying earnestly. One of my takeaways from the wedding is that planning in the detail we did was a balm, it eased my nerves in the run up to our big day and kept me feeling a false confidence. What is true is that when the rubber hits the road, it is much more important to have people around you who took the time to listen to our views on the wedding, exude competence, professionalism and warmth and that have the principles to deliver above and beyond.

You all were more important to the delivery of our wedding than we can give you credit for and will always have our appreciation for it.

All the best and the successes you deserve, Pierce and Lydia
