I have been working for Just Fingerfoods Catering since March 2015. It is extremely enjoyable working at events as both a chef and a waitress. I've been in the Hospitality industry for my entire life, having only a few small breaks, I find myself always coming back as this is the industry I most enjoy working in. I hope my blog posts help your event run as smoothly as possible and if you have any catering event related topics you would like me to cover in my blog that I have not already blogged about, please feel free to email your ideas to me at and I will do my best to blog that topic as soon as possible.
