Arguably the most important part of an event – besides you and your loved ones, of course – is the food and the booze. Nail those two and you can rest assured your guests will be happy, whether you’re going for a formal, sit-down affair or casual food truck fun.
This bespoke catering service is helmed by Italian-Australian Chef Marco Bevilacqua and Event Coordinator Olivia Ledger – and they’re on a mission to banish sad canapés and lacklustre service from your party. “Why can’t a catering business be as good, if not better than, a restaurant?” Mi Scusi, as the name would suggest, can certainly nail Italian flavours – but the sky is the limit, with flavours from around the world coming together deliciously.
Celebrate native ingredients with the unforgettable offerings of Gather Foods! This Indigenous-owned company utilises 60,000 years’ knowledge of native ingredients and sustainability in their food, from the chicest canapés, charming morning teas or indulgent feasts – think saltbush lamb koftas with native mint tzatziki, vodka-cured salmon infused with desert lime, beef carpaccio with olive and quandong or sandalwood nut tarts with strawberry gum custard cream.
Rossen And Cook
Taking a look at Rossen and Cook‘s instagram is like taking a trip through a sun-drenched Italian holiday… and while we’re not going to Italia any time soon, this is a pretty good runner-up. Balancing the fine line between classic favourites and what’s on-trend, their menus are thoughtful, restrained and yet lavish. Suitable for canapés to five-course meals, expect dishes like bresaola tramezzini with smoked leek and zucchini pickle, fig leaf ricotta with candied chilli and lavosh, or porchetta with pistachios and roast peaches.

Bamboo are masters when it comes to balancing the aesthetics and flavour of their dishes – which is a roundabout way of saying they’re pretty as a picture, and taste just as good. Heirloom tomato gazpacho is taken to the next level with cucumber and mint sorbet and parmesan feuilletine, while a kingfish ceviche celebrates local ingredients, with charred sweet corn, cured fennel, native finger lime and Geraldton wax.

Friendly and accommodating to your needs – no matter your event size or dietary preferences, you can be confident that their menus are contemporary and showcase quality local ingredients.
