Frequently Asked Questions

We regularly cater for clients whose guest’s dietary preferences include Vegetarian, Vegan, Coeliac Friendly, Gluten Free, Low Fat, Low Sugar, and Low Carbohydrate foods. Our standard menu options include a range of choices for each preference which will allow you to easily select items to satisfy your guests. As a matter of course, we only use free range eggs in our kitchen, and we are also experienced in preparing meat dishes to adhere to any specific religious requirements of your guests.

Through long experience, we have developed the knowledge and expertise required to ask the right questions regarding the nature of your event, its timing and duration, and the general profile of your intended guests. This allows us to accurately estimate the types of food and the quantities required, and to inform you if you are ordering too much which will result in wastage, or too little which will leave your guests unsatisfied.

Whilst we are confident that you will find our catering to be sensational, we do understand that for important events, you may want to taste test our food to ensure it meets your expectations. We have a tasting room at our premises in Glen Huntly Rd, Glen Huntly to facilitate our tastings. Our tastings sessions are provided at no charge but are only provided as part of the process of preparing a formal quote, for the provision of our catering, at your planned event.

Special occasions such as weddings, engagement parties, and milestone birthdays, are made more special by a great menu, and our experience and expertise is made freely available to you, if you would like us to help you choose the menu for your special occasion. We provide free menu planning sessions during business hours at our premises in Glen Huntly Rd, Glen Huntly. Bookings are essential, and at least one week’s notice is required.

We generally limit the provision of our catering services to events conducted in suburbs situated within 30 minutes driving time from our kitchen in Glen Huntly Rd, Glen Huntly, however for large events, we will service locations situated up to a maximum of one hours driving time from our kitchen (additional delivery charges may apply).

We provide catering for events conducted on any day of the week. We do not provide catering on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day, and at Easter. Our Office is open Monday to Friday from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm. Saturday 8.00 am to 1.00 pm. Sunday Closed. Our food service and bar staff can be provided for any event that we have been engaged to provide catering. Surcharges apply for staff services provided on weekends and public holidays.

We have access to numerous indoor venues throughout the areas we service, and we are happy to provide you with our recommendations once we know the full details of your event, and your specific catering requirements. We have provided catering services at each of the venues we recommend. We can also arrange the hire of shelter, tables, chairs, plates,
cutlery and glassware for events to be held outdoors, if this is required.

We are a successful, long-established, professional catering business with an excellent track record in terms of the quality and consistency of our catering, and the reliability of our service delivery. We hold all necessary Licences and Insurances and have been awarded the City of Glen Eira 5 Star Food Safety Certificate every year for the last 9 years. We also won the City of Glen Eira Food Shop of the Year in 2016. We are current contract caterers for the City of Glen Eira and three other Local Government Authorities in Melbourne. All our food is prepared from scratch in our award-winning commercial kitchen by qualified chefs ably assisted by supervised kitchen hands. We focus on fresh, healthy and innovative food prepared from ingredients that are sourced locally wherever possible. By choice we only use free range eggs in our food preparation. Our food deliveries are all made in refrigerated vans by staff trained in safe food handling procedures.

Except where we are providing our catering services under ongoing contracts, we require a minimum order value of $700.00, regardless of guest numbers. If you require catering for smaller events where the order value is below $700.00, we are happy to recommend other catering services, that will welcome your order.

We currently hold a Limited Liquor Licence that authorises us to supply liquor for consumption at pre-booked functions for you and your guests. The area in which the alcohol is to be served must be for the exclusive use of you and your guests. We have bar staff available who all hold Responsible Serving of Alcohol Certificates, and we can provide glassware and any other required items associated with bar service.

Our preference is to have at least five days’ notice, however we can usually accommodate orders with a minimum of two business days’ notice, except in periods such as pre-Christmas, where we experience very high demand.

We deliver our sensational food to your chosen venue. All deliveries are made in our refrigerated vans and are delivered within 30 minutes of the start time of your event unless agreed otherwise. Unless your event is an early morning breakfast event, your food will be prepared fresh from scratch, on the actual day of your event.

Thanks, Karlie, the catering was fabulous – especially the muffins, lots of praise for those. Almost everything was eaten too which I haven’t seen for a while. Cheers!
