          Thanks Angels. I’ve used your services a few times now, they’ve been sent to different locations across the motu, always arriving on time and of excellent quality.
          Thanks for being there when I need you!

          Great meals

          Family really appreciated the delicious meals. It really helped them over this busy time of starting work cooking meals and looking after a one year old. They were very thankful

          My daughter and her family enjoyed the meals. She thought they were very tasty .and there was plenty of food and enough for lunch the next day.

          I’m pleased they enjoyed them whilst they were recovering from Covid and I found it was easy to order and delivered on the date I suggested. Thank you.
