Thankyou so much to you and your team for everything  you did for us… it went without a hitch and I’ve had great feedback from the team. They all had a great time and it was good to see everyone in action on a completely different challenge compared to what we do during the day. You were great at getting us all organised leading up to the day and that was very much appreciated.

Our team had a fabulous time and we were really impressed with way everything was presented on the day, the quality and amount of the fresh produce available and the humour from the presenting chefs. We will happily recommend the MasterChef Challenge to others!

Gerda, Southern Cross Hospitals

Everyone raved today about what a great time they had. Heaps of fun and frivolity. Quote me on your website if you want to!

The feedback from the team has been really positive, it blew the expectations of a lot of our team, but its all everyone’s been talking about since. Its strengthened a lot of already existing relationships amongst a lot of our peers given the structure and level of interaction and participation of the evening. And it was sooooo much fun, everyone came up to me afterwards and spoke about how they couldn’t stop smiling.

Daphne, Recycle Boutique


We have had the BEST time! In fact – the staff are saying it was their best Xmas party ever! I’ve posted the event on my FB page too and I have friends that will want to do it in the future too.

A massive thank you to Katrina for hosting us on Friday. It was such a great experience and went so well. I think everyone had a great time! I would definitely love to do it again, such a great option for a Christmas party too.

What a brilliant night! We all had a blast, and really enjoyed the experience! Thanks so much for being so easy to deal with and to Chef Z hosting us, he was hilarious and a great entertainer. Have a wonderful Christmas, I have a feeling we will be back in the New Year for the others to have a shot at the title .

This was our best Xmas function ever.  There was great interaction with the entire team, plenty of laughs and would recommend this to everyone to experience.  Great food, atmosphere, and very professionally run.

Hi everyone that looked after us at Social Cooking last night – what a wonderful time we all had, thank you so very much for making it a great night out. Chef Amanda you are amazing, everyone was so comfortable (maybe too comfortable what with the pole dancing and all).

We will definitely be holding this event annually, if not more often. Once again thank you to all the wonderful staff .

Rachael, McKenzie & Co.,

Susie, Sustainability Trust,


We really enjoyed the evening, thanks. Lots of fun.

Abletech teams shared creativity, culinary skills and innovation in a 50 minute competition to make the best dinner. The four teams were given access to a plentiful pantry and kitchen facilities so there were no excuses. The hardest part was deciding what to create. Taking a creative approach, Sam and Cam made a feast for the eyes and the palate. They cooked pasta with cauliflower, brocolli, lemon, parmesan, and garlic, chilli and almonds. Their smashed potato was good too with butter, garlic, parsley and feta. It was judged as “one of the best dishes I’ve ever tasted”.

In addition to cooking there were challenges including a love letter and potato throwing. The best part was sitting down to share a meal and, if we were lucky, trying each other’s dishes.

Thanks to the Chef and the Wellington Social Cooking team for hosting a fun evening.

Team Abletech, Abletech,


Everyone had a fantastic time and over the weekend I received lots of positive comments. It was great to see individuals competing with others they wouldn’t normally work with.  Thanks for sharing the photos, I’ve circulated around the crew and it will be sure to get a smile or two on a Monday morning.

Andrea, Cardno,
