Deliciously stylish gourmet produce of the Barrington Coast brought to your door for that special celebration.

When I was a kid my mum had a catering business for home parties: special dinners, birthdays, engagements and weddings all held at private homes. The food she cooked was the newly-coined ‘modern Australian’ cuisine inspired by culinary legend Margaret Fulton and my mum was helping time-poor women make a tasty impression on their guests.

I remember helping her deliver enormous buffet platters of colourful new things to eat. No longer was the entertaining standard to remain at just chips, cheese cubes and French onion dip made from the Continental soup packet mix!

Fast forward to a new century and here we have the latest evolution of those fancy buffet plates: grazing platters, grazing tables, dessert tables, deluxe hampers, plus grazing boxes for picnics at home or picnics anywhere.

We're lucky to have these Barrington Coast caterers that are the new generation providing delicious gourmet morsels on colourfully crowded platters, tables, boxes and hampers.

Here it’s easy making a tasty impression on your guests, whether it’s a group of your besties celebrating Miss to Mrs, or just your other half.
