Master Chef Series 3 – We catered for the Crew and Judges

This is what they had to say

MasterChef NZ judges commented on Loaves and Fishes’ meals, impressing chefs of that calibre is no mean feat!

A rare catering company that have not lost their love for food & you can taste that love in their meals.

Loaves and Fishes recently catered for the crew of MasterChef NZ Series 3. As you can imagine working on MasterChef, the crew expect amazing food & Loaves & Fishes definitely fulfilled all of our expectations.

Owner Helen Merton was more than happy to adjust menus & pricing to cater for our specific requirements, as well as being incredibly flexible with meal times running early or late or even additional meals popping up at late notice. Helen & her team never failed to deliver.

Loaves & Fishes have a focus on fresh, wholesome ingredients. We were constantly impressed with the quality of the meals and the innovative menus. We particularly liked the array of fresh salads – something different everyday – packed with flavour. Variety is also key when crew are working 6 or 7 days a week and Loaves & Fishes did not fail on that front either.

The MasterChef NZ judges also commented on Loaves and Fishes’ meals, and impressing chefs of that calibre is no mean feat!

Loaves & Fishes are a rare catering company that have not lost their love for food & you can taste that love in their meals.

I will not hesitate to hire them again for any future productions (or personal parties for that matter).

Some comments from our customers


Wow! Thank you so much to you and the team for providing great food and great service. Right from the get-go, people were impressed with the buffet lunch. We ended up having enough left over to feed all our volunteers. People were surprised at how good the food was and how much we had. The food played a huge part in their conference experience! Can I also say, your delivery skills were impressive! We were able to run tea time smoothly and lunch smoothly because Sylvia was always there early and saved us so much time setting up. We have requests from our hospitality team to have you guys cater again for our next super visitor event!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

School Camp

Pacific Advance Senior School would like to endorse the service we have received from Loaves and Fishes. Food is a serious matter at a camp especially when you have 30 teenage Polynesians. You have more than delivered. Food and service has been fantastic.

Helen and her team supplied a wonderful buffet breakfast to all 240 of our staff-no mean feat! The food was delicious, well cooked and hot with plenty of variety catering for our different cultures and dietary requirements. I’d certainly have every confidence in using Loaves and Fishes again
