Absolutely have no hesitation in recommending Paula & Rachel for your next function or catering requirements. We used their services as temp cover when our Head Chef was on annual leave, and found them so easy to work and communicate with. The ladies took everything in their stride and delivered tasty mouth-watering meals to 100 hungry students night after night.

New Years Party Catering: Rebecca
Can't thank you ladies enough for the fantastic catering you provided for our New Years Eve celebrations. Food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented from the stunning antipasto platters to the incredible glazed ham, tasty salads and superb sweet treats to finish. Both Paula & Rachel were a delight to deal with - very impressed with the excellent service from advice on menu selection and ordering to delivery, preparation and pick up - nothing was a problem. I would highly recommend their fabulous catering service and look forward to using their services again in the future.
Tess & Tom's Wedding
Rachel and Paula, you two are amazing! It's been delightful right from the very first day we started chatting about our weddding. You were on board with my ideas from the get go, happily worked in with other vendors and went over and above to make our wedding day perfect. So many people have said it was the best wedding they've ever been to and I'm putting much of that down to the style and taste of the food and service. The bar service at the ceremony set the scene for all of our guests. Then when we got to the reception, the canapés and "walk and talk " food was a hit. Everyone said everything was delicious- from the squid and pork belly to the pulled pork burgers and blue cod fish and chip boxes. And there was so much food that people were turning it away. The staff you also provided for the event were lovely, so friendly and so helpful. I can't say thank you enough. The day wouldn't have been half as good without you both and your team. You guys are so relaxed (just like us) but so professional - a perfect combination! I wish you so much success in 2016 and hope to work with you again soon! All the very best.
Liz & Don's Wedding
Thank you Paula and Rachel for the absolutely amazing catering you did for our wedding!!! We had such great comments from all our family and friends on how great and delicious the menu was!! The coconut ceviche, the bean, pea and mint parmesan crisp morsel for the canapés- mmm Yum!!! The Pork Rillett, the Prawn, Pea and Noodle Salad OMG they were amazing for the starter platters and the Kumara Couscous Salad, the Harissa Chicken with minted Yoghurt Raita and Moroccan Lamb and Lentil Tagine for our mains -these were gorgeous and so delicious!! You guys really were so accommodating, fantastic and did an amazing job on the day of our wedding fitting in all our random and sort of unplanned speeches around all the various courses!! Not to mention the yummy desserts of mini Carrot Cakes, Raspberry and White Cheesecakes - that topped it all off!! Thanks again!! Would recommend Double Thyme Catering to anyone having their wedding or function in Queenstown or Arrowtown area!! Great job Paula and Rachel. Thanks heaps!
