In large metropolitan cities like Johannesburg, it’s typical for competition to rife. Companies promise clients the world, but often don’t deliver on these promises. The catering industry is no different. This begs the question, ‘who does one trust to be the best’? Passion and experience are often the differentiating factors.
The Boys Catering is run by a man who believes in passionate delivery and high quality service. Coupled with 15 years of experience and a Hotel School education, Llewellyn Jacobsz and his team are expert providers of luxury cuisine. Where some catering companies are happy to settle for ‘safe’ basics, The Boys Catering opts for flair and panache. Instead of providing standard desserts such as ice-cream, pancakes and fruits, The Boys would typically offer New York Red Velvet cupcakes with a cream cheese icing, mini Pavlova baskets filled pink custard cream topped with sugared strawberry and sprinkled with gold dust, and fresh fruit skewers drizzled with rose water. While some might find this finicky and somewhat over the top, the point that The Boys Catering makes is that everybody should be able to enjoy the finer things in life. And why not? Usually the determining factor is price. Yet once again Llewellyn Jacobsz and his troupe surprises. With a true show of humanity and a disregard for overcharging due to experience and class, The Boys Catering provides their five-star service at extremely competitive rates.
They will organise your entire event including the hiring of crockery, tables, chairs and décor, and will provide a full bar service if required. Waiters will ensure that guests are served efficiently, and a wide variety of live entertainment can be arranged. From vegetarian catering to halaal catering, High Tea’s to large corporate functions, this really is catering for everyone.
The Boys Catering is a specialist catering company situated in the heart of Johannesburg. At the helm sits one Llewellyn Jacobsz, a Hotel School trained chef with more than 15 years of experience in the catering and hospitality industry. But what sets this company apart from the multitude of others who claim to be the best? Extravagant, flavourful, and exiting cuisine that leaves nothing to the imagination. A typical caterer is likely to provide ‘safe’ starter options such as spring rolls, escargot and breads. The Boys Catering will typically provide something more exotic, such as Thai fish cakes with a praline dipping sauce, coriander, chilli and ginger marinated prawns (pan fried and dressed with wasabi mayonnaise and finally garnished with fresh lemon thyme), and phyllo baskets filled with pinotage poached pear shaving and mascarpone cheese. The Boys Catering sees this as being far from over the top. They believe that in a world filled with humdrum events and monotonous lifestyles, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of elegance every now and again.
The Boys provide a range of services, from full four-course dinners to cold finger food and canapés, tea time delicacies and celebratory suppers. They provide across a range of events such as wedding catering and private functions, and include options such as vegetarian catering and halaal catering as well. As a company that believes in innovation and passion, almost any culinary ideas you might have can be brought to life. The Boys catering truly is a fresh catering company that aims to dazzle and provide every guest with a new taste experience.
Most of us have experienced catering in one way or another, whether at weddings, Christmas parties or private functions such as birthday parties. In this modern era, this practice may seem like a new-age advancement. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. The art of catering can trace its roots all the way back to 4th century BC China, and slightly later in other ancient civilizations such as the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians. Even so, the way catering is done today is very similar (namely the acquisition, preparation and distribution of edibles).
The Boys Catering is a specialist catering company situated in the heart of Johannesburg. They are one of the most experienced catering companies in Johannesburg, and one of their star qualities is their fearlessness in the face of diversity and continual change. Your standard caterer is only too happy to provide ‘safe’ main meal options such as simple meat, starch, vegetables and salads. The Boys Catering is more likely to whip up Bourbon Pecan Chicken with Duchess Potatoes and a side of Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Sriracha Aioli. The point? In a world filled with the mundane, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of flair. With competitive prices and the provision of everything form seating, crockery and a bar service, The Boys truly caters to all.
