Waiting & Kitchen Staff

If you are organising an event, launching a product, or hosting a dinner party, having the correct staff behind the scenes and front of house is crucial.  Sophisticated Chef’s highly trained, reliable, enthusiastic and vibrant team will more than get the job done. Our waiting staff has 5-star standards of presentation and etiquette, and are accredited with responsible service of alcohol. The kitchen staff are trained to work efficiently and tidily and to handle the basics well. They are excellent team workers willing to give you their best, even when an event continues late into the night.

So, when you are in need of relief staff for the kitchen or to serve guests, perhaps because of increased business or because you are short-staffed due to illness or holidays – perhaps you just need an extra pair of hands – think Sophisticated Chef.

Brand Marketing

We love helping our clients launch new brands, reinvigorate existing ones, introduce products and solve a myriad of strategic challenges. Regardless of the assignment, we strive to design meaningful and relevant brand experiences at every possible touch point – because this is what successful brands do. Woolworths South Africa, Mimco and Conversation Capital are among the companies we regularly work with to define their brands and what they stand for. We’d love to do this for you too.

Food Styling

While most people prepare food to eat, the food stylist prepares food to feed the eyes and the imagination. To make a dish look its best, requires planning, clear communication, thoughtful shopping for food and props, expert food preparation and artful presentation. Our team can do all that and more to make your product shot or menu item the star of the show. On top of that, we work with experienced food photographers and videographers.

Product Development

When it comes to developing anything food related, Sophisticated Chef is equipped in improving an existing product or its presentation, or developing a new product to target a particular market. Consistent product development is a necessity for companies striving to keep up with changes and trends in the marketplace to ensure their future profitability and success and Sophisticated Chef is here to do that for you.
