At The Flying Pan, we believe that a wedding is truly a celebration of a lifetime, and that great food is absolutely essential for creating a memorable experience. To achieve this, we offer brides and grooms a highly personalised catering service that combines our knowledge and expertise with unique customer requirements. Food briefs are carefully considered when creating menus, and this includes paying close attention to the desired ambiance or theme of the wedding, the parameters of the venue, presentation, and dietary requirements.
As a starting point, brides and grooms can browse our carefully crafted menus, which include 'relaxed and rustic', 'formal and plated' and 'buffet feast' food options. These exist to showcase what we can offer, to inspire food ideas, and to provide an estimated cost for your budget. These food options range from laid back picnics and hearty potjies for rustic, country weddings, to delicate canapés with irresistibly plated food options for a more formal affair. From there, we consult with brides and grooms, taking into account their own ideas and special requirements, to create a beautifully customised menu for the big day.
The Flying Pan's catering service steers well clear of bland, banal or generic 'happy medium' wedding food. Rather, Executive Chef Mathew Hoepner infuses his creations with flavours that can only be achieved by using fresh ingredients, authentic spices, cooking techniques true to the dish at hand, and of course, a true passion for great food.
