Jane Green started her catering career in 1988 cooking memorable, corporate lunches and providing stylish food at private events. Clients loved her innovative ideas, delicious food, and her personal professional touch. Her imaginative style led to many wonderful and successful parties.
The word Jane Green Catering spread. Today, Jane’s culinary skills are well known, highly regarded, and often talked about, in Johannesburg, Pretoria and beyond.
One of the reasons why people constantly return to Jane Green Catering is because the food is cooked in the client’s kitchen and presented elegantly and piping hot at the table. Jane plans and prepares each meal beforehand but it is only cooked at the last minute to ensure that it is straight from the oven to the table.
Jane is well known for her culinary expertise and creativity when it comes to preparing meals for parties. Clients can enjoy their guests in the company of their home or venue and need not be concerned about the food.
Jane Green Catering focuses on medium to large corporate events, for up to 500 guests, as well as smaller company functions and private dinner parties. The food is carefully prepared beforehand, but it is not cooked until Jane is on the site. The final preparation and plating takes place in the client's kitchen, as the client is greeting the guests.
Jane Green Catering uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients, and these are displayed and plated by Jane Green in her innovative artistic style. This ensures that the food is piping hot, appetizing, crisp, original and elegant. Jane prides herself on being able to cook anywhere, under any conditions, and still produce a high class meal.
"An unforgettable taste sensation"
On Friday afternoon at Ninety North Guest House I had the privilege of encountering Jane Green Catering's 'movable feast' for the first time. I say 'encountering' because it was nothing short of a phenomenal experience: platter after platter of mind-bogglingly beautiful eats arriving one after the other - each eat leaving you wondering whether Jane Green could top this one. Here's the fact: she did! From the batter-dipped prawns with sweet chilli sauce to the fillet on crispy rounds, on to the salmon goodies (I have no clue of their names!) and the vegetable spring rolls through the newspaper-wrapped mini chip and fish meals, this was fit for a king. Thank you for an unforgettable taste sensation .....! Cecile Kiley, Red Hot Writing, Centurion. 8 September 2017
Jane, Your food was fabulous, your staff were great, you were just brilliant and we couldn't have chosen a better caterer for our wedding. Compliments all round. Many thanks." Barbora Tellinger, Wedding Catering, 24 March 2017
"A phenomenal success"
"Thank you very much for the time and effort put in to making sure the catering was such a phenomenal success at the Rolls-Royce Black Badge launch at Kyalami this weekend. As always, we received numerous compliments about the food and I was highly impressed at how immaculate the harvest station was kept at all times. Not once did I see a platter looking empty or the station looking untidy or short of plates etc. As you know, the MD as well as the Marketing Manager for Middle East and Africa were highly impressed with the food quality and standard – in fact I think Julia wants to steal you for Dubai ; )
"It is always such a pleasure...."
It is always such a pleasure working with you and takes a huge stress off my shoulders because I know I don’t even have to worry about that element of my event. I hope you get some rest before your next event. Once again thank you! " Colleen Daytona, Rolls-Royce Black Badge Event , 6 February 2017
"You are my champion of chefs."
"Huge accolade to Jane for catering for my birthday in the bush in Swaziland - two dinners (one for 28, the other for 35 people) plus a champagne breakfast for 28. Jane was cool, calm and collected whilst turning out wonderful dish after wonderful dish, despite the gas oven playing up and a very limited electricity supply. Well done Jane and thank you a million times!!! Everyone was blown away. You are my champion of chefs." Lynda van Niekerk, Ninety North Guest House, Johannesburg. 31 August 2016
"Thank you for your service, it was great."
"Your waiters were amazingly friendly and professional. Even though they didn't know who I was, they all came around with smiles on their faces, and were more helpful than the venue cleaners. Thank you for your service, it was great." Michelle, Johannesburg. 29 January 2016
"The food was spectacular!"
"Thank you for a wonderful selection of meals on Saturday. We heard from people again and again that they thought the food was spectacular. As for your staff, they left the kitchen spotlessly clean. Thanks again!" "Veronica Vurgarellis, Johannesburg. 28 January 2016
