World Class Dishes.

When planning a wedding, we look for caterers who serve menus reminiscent of the world’s top restaurants. We love degustation dishes and unexpected ingredients, flavor combinations that surprise and plating that inspires. Now, one of our favorite names in Melbourne catering, Fred & Ginger will soon be serving dishes inspired by some of Australia's top culinary talent.

Selected by the renowned Melbourne Food and Wine Festival to produce their House of Food and Wine event series, the Fred & Ginger team is working with the likes of Maurice Terzini (Icebergs), David Moyle (Franklin, Hobart), Paul Carmichael (Momofuku), Scott Pickett (Estelle), Christine Mansfield, Jacques Reymond, and John Susman.

As part of this exclusive pairing, the Fred & Ginger team will be taking inspiration from a range of the recipes produced to add to their wedding and event catering repertoire. Get a first taste of the dishes at the MFWF’s House of Food and Wine series which runs until Sunday April 9, or get in touch with Fred & Ginger on their website

Transportive Melbourne Caterers.

When it comes to Melbourne caterers... actually when it comes to any caterer we've worked with globally on any event, Food & Desire sit high at the top of our list. With their reputation for innovative dishes, seasonal flavors and beautiful plating, they came highly recommended for our Anna Sheffield Celestine event. And they wildly surpassed any expectation.

We're particular when it comes to the aesthetics of an event, but Food & Desire took our catering brief to a whole new level with high expecations of their own, combing over every tiny detail of presentation (down to sourcing the most beautiful marble dishes for our dessert bar) and creating one of the most exquisite cocktail menus we've sampled, proving in an instant why their client list consists of the likes of Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Tiffany & Co. 

Known for their palatable flavours that spark conversation and elevate moods, and food inspired by intrepid travels abroad, Food & Desire create dishes infused with a nomadic sense of wonder, transporting guests to hidden laneways of Paris or the vibrant corners of Barcelona... see more about their bespoke services on the Food & Desire website

Culinary Art

Existing as we do so heavily in the cybersphere, the things that earth and bind us to life and presence in the real world are those that connect with our senses. Those ignitions that remind us that true wealth is presence and that true luxury is having loved ones to share it with. 

In the context of cuisine, our latest discovery, Sydney based Studio Neon, epitomises these tenets to perfection. Exacting a triple assault of the senses with their tantalising creations, delectable aromatics, and remarkably visual artistry in presentation, you can count on everyone commenting on the menu! To find out more about Studio Neon and to enquire about collaborating on your event see here.

Sumptuous Grazing Tables

There’s an opulent new trend in grazing tables that feels decidedly sumptuous and full of la dolce vita. A rich array of both sweet and savoury, our mouths are salivating over honey drizzled camembert, succulent fruit and covetable selections of soft cheeses. Arranged in beautiful displays by some of the industry’s best, these examples from The Wild Rabbit Catering (Image 1& 2) and Styled Notion (Image 3,4 & 5) are a celebratory feast for the senses that will delight your guests.

Visual Vitality

So closely tied to the visual senses, the vitality of fresh produce has everything to do with its ultimate appeal.  With a strict focus on quality, we love Anise Event Catering for the importance they place on the seasons and the artful, sculptural form of their colourful canapés. Styled here atop the beautiful grey scale palette of Marloe Morgan Ceramics, the cool surface contrast perfectly builds an appetite through vibrant presentation and attention to detail.
