    What we do

    IMG_0122 (2)

    Texture Catering is a private chef and catering business. I specialize in private dinner parties, unique functions, canape events, intimate weddings & the odd pop up. Based in Auckland NZ.

    My menu changes with the seasons 4 times a year. I keep it to just 6 menu items per 'Seasonal Menu' ....4 Savory, 1 Desserts and Cheese

    My in home private chef dining experience is becoming a more and more popular option amongst people in Auckland and the surrounding areas. Hosting your friends, family or colleagues in your own familiar surroundings can be the perfect way to spend an evening. Allowing me to take care of the food leaves you to host your dinner party stress free. Better value than the city's best fine dining restaurants and on par with the good casual dining options. With you supplying your own wine people absolutely love my private chef experience.

    A small event fee is required as well and a min number of just 6 people.

    Email Jono to book the evening of your choice. [email protected]

    Choose between 3 - 6 courses of your choice

    Note: As a guide the lightest savory dishes are at the top of the menu suitable for the beginning courses. The further you go down the heavier the dishes get. Dessert & cheese courses follow them at the bottom of the menu. The idea is that everyone on the table eats the same food .

    Private chef Auckland


    Chef / Owner Jono Beattie

    I've been a chef for 20 years now, but none have been as rewarding as the past 5 years as a private chef, to cook in someones home and deliver the food to them yourself is an experience you don't get working in restaurants. It's hugely important to me to make sure everything on that plate is beautiful and well balanced. It's my job as a chef to take whatever nature has given us and enhance it to it's best abilities. A lot of time and care is taken into the preparation of every event I do to make sure it is a truly memorable meal.

    My menus change 4 times a year with the seasons..

    Winter - June, July, August

    Spring - September, October, November

    Summer - December, January, February

    Autumn - March, April, May
