Great Aunt Jo's Catering & Event Food

Great Aunt Jo's is owned and run by Jo de Vries, and is based out of the Toi Whakaari Drama School.

We deliver to central wellington suburbs and cater for office, social or event functions.

We offer gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options for most of our food. We are affordable and delicious, you wont be disappointed!


Owner and operator Jo de Vries has had over 20 years experience in catering and cooking in commercial kitchens.

She has a passion for good food, classic dishes done well and with a modern twist.

Keeping away from pretentious, expensive finger food that is often served nowadays, Jo and Head Chef, Leigh Edgar, are usually found busy beavering away cooking the freshest and heartiest of meals that are easy on the pocket and delightful on the palate.

From fresh rolls, hand kneaded by Jo, smooth creamy simmering soups, to curries cooked for hours on end to ellicit the strongest flavour, you will not be disappointed by Great Aunt Jo's. 

We pride ourselves on ensuring our food comes from the freshest and most fantastic suppliers from the local community:
  • The wonderful people at Cuba Fruit, a family owned and operated business who provide us daily with locally sourced quality fresh fruit and vegetables.
  • Island Bay Butchery who we get all our delicious free range bacon and chicken from. 
  • Zany Zeus another a local family run business who provide us with their creamy organic milk.
  • Havana Coffee who supply our cafe with the best tasting, nuttiest coffee in Wellington! You just cannot beat it.

Come and visit our premises at 11 Hutchison Rd, Newtown, Wellington. We are open to the public and would love to see you.
