To Kate, Eliot and Morsel – The Honest Food Company,
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Kiri and I had the most amazing day celebrating our wedding at Criffel Station Woolshed in Wanaka on the 5th December 2020. We have taken time over the last month to reflect on the day that was, and remember all the special moments together.
It was clear to us then and still is, that Morsel was a huge part of what made our day such a success. Eliot, your food was absolutely divine and we had multiple guests mention it was easily the best food they had ever had at a wedding, and some of them had been to quite a few. Your food still manages to get mentioned as a star of the day when we catch up with our friends over a month later!
Not only was the food absolutely amazing, your staff were complete professionals and incredibly warm, friendly and attentive to our guests. We couldn’t have asked for a better team on the day.
Lastly, to you Kate, we always felt you had our best interests at heart and that you wanted to make our day as special as we dreamed it would be. You provided great advice around the planning of the dinner for our 80+ guests and nothing was ever a problem whether it be making last minute changes to numbers, the menu or us getting behind on the run sheet on the day. You were absolutely fantastic and we both thank you so much for the amazing job you did.
Morsel catering exceeded our expectations in every way and to anyone looking to book Morsel, we would offer the strongest recommendation possible.

P.S We hope to visit again soon to try more of your amazing food!

YOU ARE AMAZING!! Thank you so so much for everything. You were such a pleasure to speak with from the very first enquiry. We really appreciate all the thought and attention to detail that went into all the planning and catering for all of our requirements and making sure everything was just right.
We were blown away by the food on the day. We could not have been happier. Everything looked and tasted amazing! We have had our family raving about how delicious everything was. My brother and sister in-law said they were extremely impressed with how well you guys looked after them with their allergies.
I'm sorry it's taken us so long to reply. We are still on a high and look back on our day with such fond memories. We could not have had a better day/week of celebrations. It's thanks to you and everyone who was involved who made it so special. We will be forever grateful and always remember you guys with fond memories (and of course spread the word when we know of anyone travelling to NZ).
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! Please pass our thanks on to the team.

Legit the best cooks in Wanaka. If you are looking for a super-team to take the pressure off you, look no further. Kate and Eliot designed the most beautiful sit-down meal for our very allergen-friendly guests. Eliot's cooking is exquisite and worth the trip to NZ alone and when it comes to running your wedding, Kate is your women. She made sure everyone was fed, all allergens were counted for and that I had a drink in my hand at all times. Such a beautiful couple and the perfect choice for our wedding.

A huge thank you for the absolutely amazing food and service you provided at Mike and Tals Wedding at Bannockburn. You guys are so easy to work with even with the set up problems with the electrical supply there were no dramas. I also want to apologise for smoking out your kitchen while trying to get the frost pot fired up. That would not have been pleasant.
I don’t think we could find a more professional and friendly team that provides top class food.
Thanks so much.

These guys catered our wedding and the food was amazing! Got so much feedback about it, with a few of our mates saying it was the best food they'd ever eaten, period.
Nicely done Kate and Elliott!

Wanted to say a big thank you to you, Elliot and the Morsel team for creating such an amazing menu for our wedding. You were a breeze to work with and I loved that you were so accommodating of my ideas and just made everything work without any drama. All of our guests loved the food and style and kept asking questions about it long after our wedding day.
Dale our MC also sang your praises for being so on the ball and helping him behind the scenes despite us running late on the timings.
All up you guys nailed it! Keep doing what you are doing, we will be following your adventures and look forward to tasting some Morsel treats next time we get back to Wanaka.

Thank you so much for catering our wedding! You both did a fabulous job!
The food I tried and the feedback from all the guests was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. I was so stoked as you know it is important to us to put on good food and I know we chose the best of the best!
The mushroom arancini and puri puri shells blew my mind!

Hi Kate and Eliot,
Chris and I wanted to thank you so much for catering our wedding on the 3rd of March. We so appreciate the last minute booking and the way you incorporated our favourite foods and ingredients. We were all blown away by how delicious the food was! We all went back for seconds and thirds and wish we could have fit in more! The flavours, eye for detail and love that went into every dish was evident.
Thank you again and best wishes,
Kelly and Chris

I am not sure I have enough words to adequately describe how unbelievably fantastic Kate, Eliot and the entire Morsel team are! Every single possible element of their offering was absolutely incredible. Eliot’s food is phenomenal - The event I hosted with Morsel was a small gathering of 20 high-profile international sommeliers (who are absolutely delightful, but due to their line of work and the vast exposure they have to the very best food and wine from across the globe, can be tricky to impress!) and each and every one of them was entranced by the dishes and treats they shared throughout the day. Even with the food alone I would have been beyond thrilled with Morsel, but I also had Kate running the show, and making this event easily the most seamless and perfectly executed I have ever organised. Morsel are completely unparalleled, and Kate and Eliot and their entire team are just plain good fun to work with as well!

Dear Kate and Eliot,
It was an absolute pleasure having you cook for us on our recent holiday to Wanaka. You can really tell that Eliot loves preparing and serving delicious, seasonal and honest food with a homemade feel for others to enjoy. We enjoyed it so much, we were constantly going back for seconds! The vision that you both have for your catering company is magnificent and mouth-watering, and we are looking forward to tasting more from your trailer in the future!
So, we just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for the delicious food. Until next time…

Kate and Eliot of Morsel I can highly recommend as outstanding chefs and hospitality professionals with a strong point of difference.
The incredible effort they go to in the menu planning and presentation of their food is quite remarkable ,and while they bring a strong international influence to everything they do, in my view their food gets better and better as they roll in the special Central Otago high country theme .
The story behind the food they serve is very special and can bring an emotional aspect to any memorable occasion alongside carefully selected matching wines grown and produced in Central Otago .
I have been privileged to enjoy several meals they have served ,and when deciding caterers for our recent Cardrona Curling Club dinner ,I had no hesitation who to call. Again they presented the food and meat to perfection. The Corbridge venue was also outstanding , set in a magical country environment ,with big screen / sound system and lake ,also the "Magic Marshall Brazier " is unique .
I can highly recommend this young couple to complement any special occasion ,with their food presentation, eye for detail and exceptional service.
