Whether it is a staff function or an external client event, catering reflects the best of your organisation, making an overall impression of quality and professionalism.

After listening to your catering request, Kate will design a menu for you and deliver food that is full of flavour, beautifully presented and generous.

Kate’s Cuisine will cater for: – Breakfasts
  – Morning / Afternoon teas
  – Lunch and Dinner Menus
  – After Five
  – Cocktail evenings
  – Product Launches
  – Staff celebrations

Kate is always trialing new products so our regular customers will have fresh and innovative ideas to choose from.

We will deliver the food ahead of time, presented and ready to eat.  Alternatively,  we can provide trained staff to circulate the food among your guests and clean up afterwards.










Kate and her team were an absolute joy to deal with. Firstly the food was phenomenal! I had heard good things about Kate’s Cuisine and was encouraged to use them at my event, and am thrilled I did. So many guests asked who had catered the event, as they were blown away by what was being served.

Also Kate’s team were extremely polished and professional. They were the perfect blend of being everywhere at once serving food, clearing glassware etc., but doing it in a way that did not intrude on the event. They were polite and well-mannered and had a good knowledge of what was being served (it was clear Kate has trained them well).

I would not hesitate to recommend Kate’s Cuisine to anyone and look forward to using them again.

Tonight we were invited to the TSB drinks and nibbles and everyone was enjoying the food, including us. I asked one of the staff who had catered!!! I liked up your card. Your food is delicious, very creative, beautifully presented and there was something to meet everyone’s needs. My favourites were the stuffed pork, the salmon, the meat balls with pineapple, the cheese balls with gherkin and sundried tomato and I could not resist the hazelnut, orange and cacao balls!!!!! Yum. I hope they use you again. We haven’t attended these in the past, but will in future not only for your wonderful food but we met some new people and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed.

My business colleague and I chose Kate’s Cuisine as the caterer for our training venue, at 191 Fox Street, Hamilton East. In this capacity Kate regularly provides morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and light evening meals for our participants.

It is often said that participants rate a training day by the quality of the refreshments that are provided. That being the case, the high quality of feedback from many participants shows that Kate’s Cuisine is making a significant contribution to our participant’s learning experiences.

I would highly recommend Kate’s Cuisine and am most happy to be contacted further to discuss this reference.

Yours sincerely

I recently arranged Kate’s Cuisine for a customer function with 70 confirmed guests.  The presentation and quality of Kate’s finger food was outstanding and I would highly recommend it.

She made it look so easy and when you are a busy person it is great to have trust in someone else.

Dear Kate

I wanted to write and thank you for your amazing catering at our workshop. It can be difficult to satisfy everyone’s needs but you managed it perfectly and the team have been very complimentary about your food! Thank you so much – no doubt we will be in touch again.

Kate went above and beyond to source special ingredients and tailor our menus to include locally-grown niche crops from our members.  Throughout our three-day conference her food was on time, beautifully presented, delicious and reasonably priced.  Her service was calm and professional with many extra touches tailoring to the NZ Tree Crops theme.  Can only give her and her team the highest recommendation.

The afternoon tea was absolutely stunning. Every single person was thrilled with the presentation, were stunned by the flavours and it was a pleasure to market your services and to speak of your service to others. It was an absolute privilege to work with you and I so look forward to working with you in the future. We will be back and everyone took business cards so expect lots of orders.

– The finger food meal was DIVINE!

– We all thoroughly loved the mini quiches (caramelised red onion & feta)

– Your croissants were enjoyed by all

– The dried fruit square was out of this world

…and I thoroughly loved the salad.

I have contacted Kate Baird to cater for me both in my position as Secretary to Bishop Denis and also at my home for private functions.  We have found her to be pleasantly efficient and totally professional in all that she does.  The menu and selection is always superb and beautifully presented.

The feeling of being able to leave Kate to take care of all the arrangements with regards to the catering has relieved me of a great burden, knowing she will always perform to her utmost.

I have no hesitation in recommending her for your catering needs.

Yours sincerely,
