Lori's food tastes divine, it's healthy and extremely hard not to go back for seconds! She even uses fresh organic produce from her own garden. Lori's sense for taste ROCKS! - Ben Gillies, Silverchair.
Lori catered for our Christmas Lunch for 35 people with professionalism, talent and charm. She was so accommodating when we had to change the venue late in the piece; nothing was a problem for Lori. And what would a Christmas Party be without food? Everyone is still talking about the fresh and delicious selection of food weeks after the event.
Lori laid out a marvellous array of finger foods, a sumptuous buffet and mouth-watering desserts. Her staff were very unobtrusive while sending around the finger foods.
I would have no hesitation recommending her to anyone with catering needs. Our staff are now looking forward to seeing Lori again for a team building cooking class. Thanks Lori for completing our day.

As a gift for my friends 40th Birthday, and as a way for us to spend some quality time together, my girlfriend attended one of Lori’s Italian Cooking Classes. Lori was so warm and welcoming, we instantly felt like old friends. It was a hands-on experience in a boutique style class of 4 students and we all felt like chefs for a day, except for the fun being had.
Not only did we learn how to cook a traditional Italian meal we also learnt about the different provinces of Italy and there cooking styles. Lori puts her heart and soul into her cooking and her expertise and authenticity in Italian cooking is amazing.
After our 3 hour class we sat outside at a beautifully set table and Lori served us our dinner creation with a bottle of wine. I want to thank you Lori for this thoroughly entertaining day.
Carola, Hunter Valley
Food was fantastic, thank you so much, we were both really impressed and wouldn't hesitate to use you again. We would also be happy if other potential clients of yours wanted to phone us for a testimonial etc, we will recommend you where we can.
I loved it all, but particularly liked the stuffed capsicum, and the soffrito – you can do so many things with it!
Anne, East Gosford
Easy cooking that takes little time, few ingredients, plus ingredients you would already have.
I will definitely be back for some more classes. The catering is very tempting as well.
I really liked that it was easy to ask those 'silly' questions and learnt how to do so many things that I can try at home with readily available ingredients.
Kathy Rooney, North Avoca.
I really liked that Lori could answer all my enquiries and that the class also had a very easy, relaxed atmosphere.
Josh Clarke, Terrigal.
Lori's cooking classes are fun, she was very generous with her time, going well over the quoted finishing time. The variety of courses, great atmosphere, and Lori's passion for food make for a truly great experience.
Scott B, Terrigal.
Best catered food going around!
Oliver Bozanic, Central Coast Mariners/ Socceroos
Cooking classes with simplicity, easy explanations and techniques. We are very inexperienced so the simple and informative style was perfect. You have a great personality for teaching, and we had a lot of fun because of it.
Dale Morris, Wamberal.
In Lori's classes there is so much variety of cooking styles on offer, all very simple to make due to lots of information, step by step, helpful but not intimidating, all in a relaxed setting.
Lauren Atkins, Lisarow.
I liked that the class wasn't rushed, everything was explained precisely, but mostly it was relaxed and friendly. Sitting back after lunch and talking with our host was great.
Bronwyn Fulton, Saratoga.
Just wanted to say thank you once again for the most amazing day yesterday. I greatly appreciate all you did to make the day so special and wonderful not just for me but for all my friends as well.
I confident to speak for everyone there when I say the whole experience was wonderful. Your knowledge of cooking and sharing of your experiences made it very personal.
I cannot leave out mentioning that velvety lemoncello or the bubbles, just stunning.
I am sure my friends and I will return again in the not to distant future and maybe even try to have team building day.

I wanted to write to let you know how pleased I was with the catering you provided for Kevin’s 50th Birthday Party. I can't thank you enough for your guidance and advice in making our party a success.
The effort and personal touch you put on everything from the menus, the delicious Italian finger food, cheese & fruit platter (the best we’ve ever seen) food presentation and set up for Italian coffee to end the evening was all fabulous.
Our guests raved about the food and enquired as to who our caterer was, so you may hear from them direct regarding other events they may be putting on themselves. We were very happy with everything.
I was also very impressed with the calm manner, professionalism and enthusiasm you and your staff showed and the fact that our kitchen was left immaculate so that we had nothing to clear or wash up ourselves at the end of the evening.
Kevin and Sue, Terrigal
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a terrific evening on Monday. Zoe and I had a great night, informative, relaxed, professional, fun, fabulous! We will be back and bring/send others!
Becc and Zoe
Your professionalism handling our last minute request so late into the silly season, gave us the opportunity to relax & enjoy my husbands' 50th birthday celebration..
Wow, what a day we had! The weather couldn't beat the the fabulous cuisine & presentation prepared by yourself & your team... The attention to detail gave our intimate affair the personal touch that often evades a ' catered ' event. Yummy food... no fuss, no mess...we'll definitely be calling again!
I was amazed to find out the variety of dishes that can be created from a few simple ingredients.
Angela, Pt. Frederick
Hands on cooking and watching – Lori explains everything.
Lori's Italian background and passion for food are really evident in her authentic tasting meals that she prepares! Top notch catering at a reasonable price, without cutting corners!
Very fun and relaxed cooking class. I enjoyed how easy it is to take these tips and recipes home to make my own meals.
Carly Wall, Yowie Bay.
I enjoyed learning, and then eating what we cooked shortly after. The one-on-one learning experience was great.
Joe & Nicole Woodly, Davistown.
Working from scratch, we learned how to whip up curries and fresh pesto - loved it!
Anita Phillips, Bensville.
Lori, it was a great pleasure to meet you and your lovely daughter. Thank you so much for preparing such a wonderful meal for our group. It was superb - fresh, perfectly cooked dishes with the most amazing flavours. I enjoyed it immensely!
Annie Drinkwater, Toowoomba.
I really enjoyed learning how to use a pasta maker- something I've owned for a while and not used! It was great to learn how easy making my own sauces can be and how flavoursome they are!
Deon French, Kariong.
I liked the idea of being able to make a very nice and filling dinner out of cheap ingredients. I am new to cooking so I like being introduced to something that is not too difficult and yet very nice.
David Loats, Long Jetty.
I liked the friendliness, hands on approach, the knowledge of the teacher, and eating great food at the end of the class.
Fay Wehrstedt, Wyoming.
Lori, a BIG THANKYOU for making our Christmas party a delicious and sumptuous afternoon. Your expertise with food surpassed our expectations, and having ‘sampled’ each of the finger foods a few times, we backed up for more at the buffet, again a few times!
The fruit sticks were a perfect finish. You just took care of everything, all we had to do was eat, drink and kick our feet up. I would honestly recommend you to others, it would be a shame if they missed out on what you can do for them!
Kim J, Davis Stewart Rowland
Fantastic afternoon with fun, inspiration and plenty of bragging rights for the winners of the challenge. The team hasn’t stopped talking about the afternoon with Lori.
Warren Smith, Simplot Australia
Great team building exercise where we could work together & compete against each other at the same time. Lori was organised and creative, an extremely enjoyable afternoon.
Sarah Pinkham, Simplot Australia
Thank you for a lovely luncheon on Sunday, we really appreciate the great effort you put into it! "Good food- Good wine- Good company!" All this made it a very happy Christmas
occasion for us and family!
June and Stewart, Holgate
I really liked the simplicity of today’s class! It was fun, but I also learnt so much, which I can incorporate into my own recipes.
I found it all incredibly informative and useful. There was a lot of information given. I particularly liked the hands on aspect of the classes.
