In Home Catering, Christchurch
Private Dining at Home
In home catering is Christchurch’s private chef service that’s created and delivered in your own home. We take the stress out of entertaining and we bring restaurant-quality meals to you. From intimate dinner parties for a few, to a feast for many, in home dining is an affordable luxury.
We create bespoke menus tailored to your individual tastes for casual dining, fine dining and even gourmet degustation.
What We Do
Food is a central element of any event, and we understand that you want to offer something that will surpass the expectations of your guests. So, for both large and small events, we can design a menu that’s unique to you.
Complete your occasion with a private, trained chef and offer guests a selection of gourmet dishes. For in-home dining options, your party can choose between freshly-prepared entrees, mains and desserts. Otherwise, browse our degustation menu and allow guests to try 5 courses or 8 courses for a varied and exciting taste experience.
We can prepare your chosen plates right there in your kitchen or deliver them fresh to your door. Whichever service you prefer, you can count on us to help you create a relaxing, enjoyable event that’s complete with a tailored menu.
