This is just a short mail to say thank you very much for everything you contributed on Hansa 3. Â We have now shot 4 out of 6 of our Hansa commercials and I could not do my job without you all.
Thank you so much for the amazing meals and craft on our shoot. I feel utterly blessed to have had you involved, you made us look so good and I know how tough it was on the budget I gave you.
This will not be forgotten and I hope we will be working together again very soon
Lots of love
Dearest Alex, Carri and all todayâs helpers!
There are few words that can express adequately just how much the Christmas party did for our special kids today, but if anything says it all, one of the children said to her teacher, âtoday was the best day in my lifeâ.
Yes, today was indeed the cherry on the top for our children, and it will live on in their memories for a very long time to come.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, on behalf of all the children at GlenBridge.
A shoot with you would never be the same without a closing poem !!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
AN ODE TO YAâALL
âSo here we are, again on this road,
Where I feel the need to write an ode,
The path you paved for our little shoot
Was smooth AND pothole-less; to boot
Oh how we appreciate your support and love
Makes it easy to write all of the above.
Hope you got the dailies and maps
If not, Iâll be dishing out slaps.
Our shoot was effortless and totally fab
We got our film off in time for the lab,
We ate good food and had swell crew
The loved the gear and even the loo.
And once again, its all coz of you!!!!!!!!â
A massive thanks to you all.
KISSES and bum slaps.
Send invoices beautiful folks.

Hey Lovely Alex
Firstly I just wanted to say how fantastic it was working with your team on Garnier PURE. I had great compliments on the food and from my side the service was great, friendly and professional. Oh and might I just add how great the new uniforms look â makes a nice statement!
nicole ford / productions manager
The food was GREAT and the crew all enjoyed it. I was especially pleased to see rye bread without having requested it personally. The only problem is that the kgs I lost during winter are climbing back on rapidly! The team was an absolute pleasure to have on set, especially Church, who was full of smiles and love, and Gerald who kept me topped up with coffee!
Dear Alex & Justine
A very big thank you to you and your teams for really great food & craft on the Weight Watchers shoot.
The whole crew, director’s team, agency & client were very complimentary about every aspect of the food, craft and service.
We were also incredibly grateful to you for really pulling a great supper & craft out of a hat at 12 noon on Saturday for our reshoot.
Thank you very much and we are looking forward to eating your food again soon.
Debbie, Dennis, Valerie & the Rocket crew
Rocket Films Africa
Just wanted to say thank you thank, you to you and your great staff. The food was amazing and the crew commented on that. The only bad thing I have to say is that I am dreaming about that damn cheesecake you had on set it was so amazingly lekker all I want know is cheesecake so â curse be on the person who made it (said with love of course)
The staff was great and always smiling. I know it was tough and far away locations and long cold hours but they did well and did it with a smile.
Hope to work with you again soon…
Have a lekker day
minette williams | production coordinator | egg
âTime for my thank you ditty,
[running out of poems that are witty],
A big thank you I must say
On this one, yaâall saved the day,
On day 1, we stood in the rain,
Can you imagine the Production Pain?
Threw my hands in the air,
Why did the weather have to go so pear??
And on day 2, we stood in the sun,
We laughed and cheered and had some fun..
Send invoices, the dreaded recon beings,
Stuff you RAIN, Production WINS!!!!!!!â
…thanks guys, you seriously rock
Angela Bennett – Production Manager
We have been fortunate to work with Alex and her crew many times of the past few years and find her cooking delicious, wholesome and varied. The clients compliment us on our choice time after time. I cant wait for the next production where I will be looking forward to what is on the lunch menu
Razor Sharp Films
Hi Alex and Justine, Just want to say…THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! As always, you ladies rocked! The food was outstanding. Yum! Please thank Amanda and her team for us. They were super! Looking forward to having you ladies again sometime soon. Regards, Amina
Hi Alex and Justine Firstly â I would like to say a massive thanks for all the hard work and effort you guys put into feeding us! So appreciated and you cant hold me back when they call lunch. And I hate to admit it (and Amanda will bare witness) â I always have two helpings of veggie sausies for breakfast??? Secondly, I have to compliment you on your staff! Friendly, happy, smiley folks who bend over backwards to assist and help and clear up after us!! Such a pleasure working with people like that! Amanda is such an angel â if I was a millionaire I would set her up in a little house on the hill- with a swimming pool and a Cuban named, Raoul â serving her drinks off a silver platter all day!!! Not a word of complaint or a mention of the fact that they had to be up at 2am for the next job with Navigator..I had to pry it out of herâ¦..I wanted to know when her next job was? Usually when folks are worked hard by us and have to be up early the next morning â its written all over their faces â but not with your guys!!! What an asset to ALEXâS CATERING!! And lastly â I wish you both a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.

Thanks again for everything, Church and the team did a really fantastic job. See you on the next one.
Hi there. Thank you very much for the catering. The Catering team whose team leader was Willard, are by far the best and well mannered staff I have come across. They were well dressed sincere and polite. The food presentation was really great too. To the craft team, if continue to make those great smoothies, I will take them away from you and they can live at my house permanently. Thanks Again
Hi Ladies. Just some feedback regarding the Swiss Lotto catering. Our International Crew, Agency and Client raved about the food and the friendliness of the crew on board. ( I also heard a lot of SA crew say that the catering had been great â which as we all know is great compliment as all crew do is complain). I love the new menuâs â they are so much more suitable to our warm days on set. The only problem is though that I have to stop myself from going back for seconds. Thanks yet again for another wonderful shoot with Alexâs and Audreys.
Okay, so I know that I am always writing this kind of mail at the end of every job, but please know that its important for me to do soâ¦â¦I LOVE YOU FREAKINâ GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The cake (so beautiful)â¦â¦the catering staff (so beautiful)â¦..the crafty crafters (so beautiful)â¦.the food (to die for)â¦.the presentation (to die for)â¦â¦..Church and her smile (to kill for)â¦â¦those gorgeous craft ladies (to kill for)â¦..I just love it all to bits!!! â¦â¦â¦as for those veggie sausies at breakfastâ¦ (I have no words)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bless you all, thanks so much and massive hugs, squeezes and kisses to you all
Actually Al, I had some salad AND 2 bowls of pud on the 2nd Day!!!!!!!!! Hahahhahahahahahahaâ¦. I love Amanda with all my heart and as for those craftersâ¦oh MY-GODâ¦they were simply fantastic. Cheerful, smiling all the time, kind, patience and so very very efficient. Shonz says she must have put weight on, on this job (not that I can seeâ¦.) coz of all the divine food and treats. You guys are the best..and the catering and craft staff are a great team. I am fond of every one of them!!!
The last two jobs that my husband has worked on has been Alexâs catering. He keeps coming home reeking of garlic (charming) So when I had a moan at him about it, he said he cant help it â Alexâs catering make really good food. And he usually never eats on set or compliments the cateringâ¦â¦
Hi Alex, Thanks again for the delicious food â I am definitely back on my diet again having gained a bit of weight the last couple of daysâ that is till the next shoot. Your lentil cakes were absolutely delicious and ta for the recipe…
Hi Alex. I have a rather serious issue with the catering on the Fitness job. It was too good and I put on 3kg. Tempting me with pecan nut pie is really unacceptable as I canât help myself and have to have two helpings. So if you can supply salad, brown rice and high fibre food, with no pudding, on the next job, I would really appreciate it. Thanking you in anticipation of fitting in to my clothes again….Nikki 🙂

Hello. All was superb. Craft was FANTASTIC. Thanks again for an awesome job and look forward to the next job with you.
Hi Alex, The catering and craft was awesome. You guys did a great job.
Hi there, I just wanted to thank you guys for the delicious lunches yesterday – even the crew were thrilled (so unusual!). Also wanted to thank you for working with our tight budgets lately. The pressure this season has been incredible from clients to cut costs. Going forward we are trying to hold a better allowance for catering.
