Functions and Catering

Your place our ours. Based at the old Maitland Gaol, we specialise in personal, select, hand-picked off-site catering jobs where our food can shine. Our dishes are prepared from scratch for each and every event. Our jobs take us to local venues, Sydney, the Gold Coast, out west to Denman and Sandy Hollow, and as far afield as the Gulf of Carpentaria (Nhulunbuy). We have been on location caterers for “Cat Empire” and “Eskimo Joe” during the filming of music video clips in our region, and have also hosted the cast & crew of ‘Surfing the Menu’ and ‘Mercurio’s Menu.’
