Dear Bern, 

Many thanks for all your help in making Roger’s birthday celebrations such a success. There was a lot of laughter and being together with all the hard work having been done by you made it a real treat for us all. The meal was delicious and those lamb shanks!!!”

What a talent you are yourself!!!

Thankyou for providing the most beautiful, artistic, delicious food for my big party. There have been so many comments about how fabulous it was.

It all went like clock-work. The Bern team was like a well-oiled machine. Thank you for going to so much effort.  I did send an email out a week before saying “Don’t eat before-hand – Catering by Bern The Chef! Again thankyou for ensuring all the food was perfect, everyone was more than well-fed, on–time….pretty amazing effort. I think the quantities were obviously spot-on & you left the kitchen like a new pin.

“Good Morning Bernadette,

 Once again our gathering was a fabulous success thanks to your never-ending good nature and expert skills with all things ‘food’.

We finished off with devouring the Walnut and Coffee cake, how delicious is that ???

Not a skerrick left, now that’s a great outcome !!!!!!”

Thanks Bernadette for a seamless party experience. The food was delicious and beautiful and her team were amazing. They climbed countless stairs and ensured all of my meandering guests were fully catered with food and drink. If you want an amazing event, cooked in a commercial kitchen, professionally insured and presented with pure class then Bern the Chef gets my vote.

Hi Bernadette

Thank you so much for all your help in making Angus’s birthday a success.
All went very well.
The food was great and your team did a superb job. (My wife was very relaxed all night because she did not have to worry about a thing).
Lots of spontaneous and positive comments back from the guests
And they also tidied up!”

“You don’t need anyone else to cater anymore. Bern is the BEST! She know food, it’s her thing, been in the industry for a long time and always kept in front of the game. She is creative, smart and gorgeous.

I’m a bit biased as we did a ski season together in 1999 but I have seen every side to this inspirational, amazing, professional, funny women. Working on a train with things going wrong out of your hands she still pulls off an amazing job. That’s what it’s about too, things might be happening behind the scenes but you’ll never know.
If you have a sense of humor it will work even better. I’ve laughed a million miles around her. Mmm I think I’ve said all that’s in my head and heart.
