“I organised a charity indoor soccer tournament and enquired with a few companies about catering for the event, but Yvonne’s Kitchen really stood out with their speed of response, menu choice and value for money. The food provided was fantastic and everybody was raving about it, there was absolutely nothing left by the end of our event! I will definitely use Yvonne’s Kitchen for any future events I hold.”
