Testimonials for Jed Sneddon
Such a great service. We all had such an amazing evening celebrating my husbands 40th being surrounded by amazing food, in a beautiful location and not having to do anything was a highlight. Each course was delicious and full of flavour. Jed was very easy to talk to and my husband felt ver comfortable watching him cook and discuss food with him. He was able to explain each course as it was bought to our table. The table was set lovely to match and the kitchen left spotless on their departure.Food: | Service:Jo Zammit (QLD)

Jed was efficient, polite and more than happy to answer questions about preparation of each course. Above all the service was excellent and the food delicious. The local produce was fresh and cooled to exactly how we each ordered. All my guests did they would definitely use Jed again.
