Melbourne Cup party catering

Between all that booze you’ll be downing, you’d better make sure there’s more than enough food to balance it out. One of the most important aspects of any party is the catering, and on Melbourne Cup day your team is looking to be truly wowed. We’ll connect you with your very own private chef to cook and deliver an incredible mouth-watering meal on-site, full of all your favourites.

You can work with the chef to craft a menu that’s made just the way you like, or have them come up with something from their own creative imaginations. From multi-course gourmet meals to quirky canapes, grazing tables, buffets, barbecues, and desserts, your personal chef is here to deliver Melbourne Cup catering that’ll impress.
