Corporate Lunch, Maitraya Luxury Private Retreat
Saturday 12th February saw the marriage of some of life’s key essential elements - an evening of divine wines, delicious French peasant fare by Xavier & Janette Poupel of Terroir & Table, and great friends, set in the wine production area of the Rickety Gate winery; a huge success judging by the ongoing feedback received by all who attended.
Xavier’s ‘theatre of food’, showcasing his mobile wood-fired oven delivered the best of French regional rustic cuisine. This coupled with his interactive personality & knowledgeable expertise, plus his passion for the “Slow Food” philosophy made the atmosphere of the evening positively infectious.
Janette’s flare for set-up, décor and attention to detail left no stone unturned , along with her efficient yet discrete service ensured the evening went without a hitch.
Rickety Gate Estate is looking forward to many more collaborations with Terroir & Table in show casing and supporting the Great Southern’s regional produce.

"The food you provided was superb – and without doubt allowed the guests to feel they received tremendous value for money. Every part of the day was catered to without a hitch – allowing the guests to taste so many food sensations from Provence and other areas of the world you have lived and worked in.
Your professionalism in handling some difficult situations during the day without losing your sense of humour was terrific.
I would not hesitate in recommending Terroir and Table to others considering a catering job, both large and small......."
