Gourmet Gurus was born out of successful coffee café, Food Fundi, owned by Prue Leith graduate and Lowveld-born lad, Jason Powell. What began as small-scale catering for Nelspruit corporates and bespoke Lowveld weddings is now a stand-alone catering operation with its own industrial kitchen. With the addition of Paul and Natalie French, who boast decades of high profile catering and event management experience, Gourmet Gurus offers an exceptional broad-based catering service. Our formula is not based on set menus and prices. We prefer to create an experience for our clients, based on their budget and brief. From VIP breakfasts at Oppikoppi, to large-scale stadium conferencing and tailor-made intimate weddings, we travel throughout the country, and pride ourselves on our personalised menus and adaptable service.
