57 years ago, on the 9th August 1956 – 20,000 women staged a march to the Union Buildings in Pretoria in protest to the proposed amendments to the Urban Areas Act of 1950 (Pass Laws). Led by Lilian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph, Rahima Moosa, Frances Baard and Sophie Williams, these women left bundles of petitions containing over 100 000 signatures at government’s door. They sang a protest song composed in honour of the occasion, Wathint’Abafazi Wathint’imbokodo – now you have touched the women, you have struck a rock. These words have come to represent the courage and strength of South African women.

Today, we see women achieving recognition and success in a variety of arenas, from their within communities to the world stage – women are agents of change! At Froth Beverages we are celebrating the symbol of courage, and the power that South African women have to continue to bring about transformation.

In honour of South African women, we have created a Liberating Special Offer. Book our Mobile Speciality Coffee or Smoothie Bar, any time between now and the 29th August 2013, and enjoy:

We come across hundreds of cars in our daily lives, we read about them, we admire them and most importantly dream of owning them. This is what makes the Johannesburg International Motor Show one of the most exciting events on the South African Calendar. Run in conjunction with the “Auto Shop” and Johannesburg Truck Show”, this event collectively offers a complete representation of the motor industry, serving Sub Saharan Africa and South Africa as a host country. This year‘s event runs from the 16 - 27 October 2013 and will be hosted at the Johannesburg Expo Centre in Nasrec, Johannesburg.

Serving more than mere entertainment

Cirque du Soleil’s new show Dralion, draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and the ever present quest for balance between humans and our environment. The magnetism of the show is undoubtedly inescapable, as the world’s finest acrobatic performers enthrall audiences the world over. And Dralion looks to push the boundaries of what seems possible as performers demonstrate amazing control, precision timing, fluid movements and daredevil-like antics, much to the delight of an audience on the edge of their seats.

At Event Food Services we may not be as limber as the Cirque performers we are however going to bend over backwards to make sure you get the best experience possible when visiting the Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate.

Our employees are already hard at work, preparing for your arrival and this year we have created a menu that is sure to delight! From large juicy cheese griller to a delicious sandwich with a side order of chocolate dipped mini doughnuts, we are serving just what you are in the mood for. As always we have the ANAT, Chip ’n Dip and Doughnut kiosks which have proved to be a favourite year-in and year-out.

With your comfort in mind, we have identified key kiosks for service, in the hopes of thinning out crowds and ensuring that everyone is able to purchase their refreshments before the show commences and during the interval. We have been asked by Cirque Management to please close all kiosks 5 minutes prior to the start of the show and at the end of interval, so please be patient while our kitchen and front of house teams, attend to everyone.

We have a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available, including piping hot tea and coffee for your enjoyment. Whilst we have installed signage regarding the Health & Safety Policy, we would like our visitors to be aware that we are required to serve all plastic bottled beverages without their lids and all cans are to be poured into cups. And no alcohol will be sold to under 18’s and IDs may be requested.

There you have it, the Cirque acrobats are not the only performers at the Dome on the 21st March – we will see you there.

Not just catering, its an experience!

Living and working in a post-recession economy has most of us downsizing, scrimping and saving where we can. The economic downturn not only changed what we choose to spend money on but also how we choose to celebrate and recognise the milestones in our lives.

At Delmont Caldow Catering we immediately recognised the trend moving toward a casual and quick menu plan as apposed to a fancy and formal style of catering. At Delmont we know that customers want the best quality and will find value in the right menu. We have responded with a number of catering solutions that will suit just about any budget whilst still offering the best quality produce in a menu that is simply delicious.

Our chefs review the menus on a quarterly basis, making sure they incorporate their best ideas in innovative dishes that are an expression of their craft and attention to detail. Delmont Caldow’s menus include the seasonal availability of fresh local produce as well as keeping pace with the current food trends.

Being in an industry where creativity is as much of a commodity as service and reputation, we have worked hard to make sure we keep offering innovative catering solutions for your events. Whether you are hosting a relaxed informal corporate function or a glamourous cocktail party product launch, we have the creativity to take your event from good to great.

A fresh idea that is proving popular is the interactive food prep stations, inspired by our appetite for reality cooking television shows – we at Delmont offer a hotspot sensory experience.  Our team of talented chefs will prepare a signature dish, designed exclusively your event – in a mobile open plan kitchen island. Guests get to watch as the chefs prepare each ingredient. The aroma of freshly chopped herbs hints at the flavour profile, whilst the sizzle of hot oil in the pan brings the dish to completion.  Finally, a dusting of spice connects it all – a perfect balance of artistry and skill!

Make your next event a talking point!
