Very satisfied with the cooperation…

“We are very happy with the cooperation for our wedding party with Illie Mangaro and can only recommend it for anyone who wants to organize a cool, surprising party.”

Very professional, unforgettable party…

“Last year we went looking for a caterer. Through the room Blanc Fixe we had managed to get through a number of contacts. Ilse was the first candidate to respond immediately to our call. This smooth and open way of communication, both in the beginning and in the later elaboration of the party, has given us the decisive factor We did not want the classic wedding party dinner and Ilse immediately joined our idea of food sharing and world cuisine with Thai, Marrocan and Italian dishes. She herself put many good proposals on the table (literally), such as old soup bars of the grandparents/flea markets to brighten up the starter. At the party itself, Ilse and her team were very professional and we only received praise from our guests for the quality and quantity of the snacks, dishes and desserts. In short, we are convinced that we have chosen the right caterer that has contributed to an unforgettable celebration!" — Jan & Katrijn"
