The Difference’ might initially seem like an unusual name for a catering business, but when the Chef overseeing cuisine is a Michelin-starred chef it makes total sense. Stephanie and Philip Reynolds have 56 years in the food business between them, including catering for America’s Cup boats, running restaurants and working as the head chef at a Michelin-starred establishment, as well as in other high profile eateries including Harrod’s. Quite the difference to your average catering company. We have a huge focus on natural, sustainable food, minus any additives, and aim to use as much free-range and organic food as is viable cost wise. “We really enjoy cooking but that’s only half of the joy of it. When someone employs a caterer it’s usually because the event is really important to them, whether it be a 21st or a big corporate do. We love helping make it really special and it’s such a thrill when you see the client enjoying themselves with exactly the food and vibe they wanted to create. You don’t get that working in restaurants. We love food but we love people too and this gives us the best of both worlds. “ Exceptional Auckland based caterers for every occasion.
