Cape Town Wedding Catering company The Flying Pan understands that a wedding is truly a celebration of a lifetime and that beautifully presented, mouth-watering food is absolutely essential for creating an unforgettable wedding.
In order to create a memorable event, The Flying Pan offers brides and grooms a highly personalised catering service that combines expert knowledge and expertise with unique customer requirements. Food briefs are carefully considered when creating menus, paying close attention to every detail, the desired ambience or theme of the wedding, presentation, and dietary requirements. From the initial concept of the menu down to the last edible crumb, The Flying Pan works closely with wedding coordinators and venue providers before and on the wedding day, to create a seamless event with minimal stress.
To ensure a successful wedding day, The Flying Pan prides itself in establishing an excellent relationship with the bride and groom and is able to consult throughout the entire wedding catering process. As a starting point, brides and grooms can browse through carefully curated menus, which include ‘relaxed and rustic’, ‘formal and plated’ and ‘buffet feast’ food options. These exist to showcase popular food options, to inspire menu ideas, and to provide an estimated cost. These food options range from casual picnics and hearty potjies for rustic, country weddings, to delicate canapés with irresistibly plated food options for a more formal dining experience. From there, The Flying Pan consults with couples, considering own ideas and special requirements, to create a beautiful customised wedding 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.
