We were really pleased with how the christening went and thought the food you prepared was fantastic – the fact there were no leftovers is testament to just how much everyone enjoyed the catering!

I just want to say how wonderful Maxine Quinn is and what an incredible meal she cooked for my family. She came into our home and produced an amazing, mouthwatering Asian menu for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. Not only was every dish delicious, unique, well thought out and beautifully prepared and presented but Maxine herself made the whole evening such a pleasure. She comes into your home in a relaxed and well-organised manner, & cheerful yet unobtrusive. She made the whole occasion very special and memorable. Thank you so much xx
