Melbourne Catering Menus

Essential Catering & Events has an extensive range of catering options to suit any event.

With menus ranging from casual buffets to elegant finger food and formal sit-down dinners, we can help you choose the perfect menu, ensuring that your event is one that you and your guests will long remember.

Our menus consist of hand made products which are prepared in our commissary kitchen utilising fresh and local produce. Food is then cooked on location to ensure freshness and quality. Herbs, flowers and citrus fruits are grown onsite in our organic garden, where we also compost our organic waste. Our menus have been carefully designed to ensure there are plenty of items to choose from and we are confident that our generous servings will satisfy even the heartiest of appetites!

Our menus are full of dishes to accommodate common dietary requirements such as gluten free or vegetarian options. If you have a special dietary requirement we are happy to accommodate.

what our customers say...

Amazing food! The waiters are so accommodating and were very nice to all my guests. My guests said they were so happy with the quality of food and the waiters who served them. A stand out was Caroline on my wedding day. She was so lovely and attentive! Would definitely have any event catered by them in the future

Organised a morning tea for a dozen people at work with very little notice. The service was delightful & the whole experience very simple and no fuss. The food was delicious - super fresh & tasty. A great variety of yummy sandwiches and lovely pies & cakes! Will definitely use Essential Catering again should the need arise! Thanks to all concerned. Very happy customer!
