'We used Ralph's catering services on three separate occasions so far for family celebrations where we needed delicious food, a professional and attentive service, sensible advice and a creative touch. We have found Ralph to be very experienced and quick-thinking for all different kinds of catering and party service needs - from setting up a marquee right down to beautifully presented and individually served dishes. He is very reliable and knowledgeable, and very flexible with all of a client's requirements. We would highly recommend his catering services and will be using him again in the near future for a large event.'

'I was hosting a house party with about 50 guests so Ralph came up with a menu of hot and cold canapés to suit the function. He delivered the food about two hours before the party started with clear instructions and kindly left me all his serving bowls. The portions were very generous and the food was absolutely delicious. We had lots of great comments from our guests about the food. I originally considered using Waitrose party food but when comparing the prices and having the option of using a local passionate company with fresh food and ideas, I would always choose Ralph!'

'Ralph’s gluten-free steak pies are quite simply the best pies I’ve ever tasted. The pastry is amazing and you’d never have the slightest idea it was gluten free. The pies are very generously filled and the quality of the steak is exceptional, the meat is so tender it just melts in your mouth and is surrounded by a delicious rich dark gravy. Perfect comfort food ! I buy the pies fresh but have discovered they reheat perfectly from frozen too. My children have no special dietary requirements but even so they beg me to get Ralph’s gluten free pies because they taste so good !'

'Ralph’s food is outstanding for any occasion whether it is a formal dinner party, a cocktail party or a summer party in the garden. His food choices are amazing, and you cannot go wrong with any of his dishes. Ralph is so professional, friendly and reliable. Ralph will provide as much assistance as you need with platters, cutlery, servers etc… I highly recommend Ralph for any special occasion you may be celebrating.'

'Ralph Wettach is providing all our in-house counter foods, events catering and wine matching dinners at our shop in Putney.
We hooked up with Ralph when we opened this shop a year ago because his quality and broad range of skills and offerings were already known to us. And its working out very well, never disappointed even one person that's for sure, with either traditional foods or the more common contemporary style. The locals here it seems just love his offerings, inc his often very clever creations for events.
We have only the highest praise for Ralph, for his culinary prowess and for his professional execution.
We are proud to be associated with Ralph and will certainly continue to do so.'

'Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was at my birthday party. In particular the Thai curry and the chocolate mousse were delicious. I would recommend Ralph and will use him again.'
