Where will we travel to?

Food Stuff is based in Mona Vale and we can cook at your home or hired venue.

We are also happy to travel for functions or party catering outside of Sydney & the Northern Beaches, to anywhere in NSW or Australia.  Venues outside of Sydney will include a travel fee.  If you can provide us with the venue address and details about your event, we can then provide you with a quote.

For events being held in public places, council approval is generally required.


Setting up to cater at your venue

We will usually arrive 2 hours prior to your serving time to set up.  We bring all the equipment along to your venue to cook including trestle tables.

Once you have booked us for a function or catering if we cannot establish a suitable place to cook over the phone we are happy to conduct a site visit to discuss the set up for your event.  We usually arrange this the week leading up to the event.

Setting up and cleaning down is seamless so you do not have to worry about a thing….and enjoy your party.

What we provide

We provide dishes such as Tapas, Canapés, Platters or Grazing Tables as part of our function/party catering services on the Northern Beaches and surrounds of Sydney. For $1 per person, we can supply disposable palm leaf plates, wooden forks &napkins, which are all biodegradable.  We recommend these palm leaf plates, as they are substantial and do not conduct the heat like bamboo, plastic or cardboard.  If you choose this option, we ask that you provide bins for people to dispose of them easily on the day of your event.

Costing does not include linen, crockery, cutlery, glassware, beverages, collecting or washing up of plates & cutlery

We provide a chef and assistant (or assistants depending on numbers) to cook and serve buffet style

For cocktail only parties we do recommend that you provide professional wait staff to distribute the food efficiently.  We are happy to recommend a local agency that we often work with.


Function/party catering enquiries, booking procedure and payments

Please make an enquiry either by phone or via e mail on our contact page giving us a brief overview of your event.  We will then send through to you the required information sheets with prices

If you would like to proceed with your event the next stage is to hold the date with a deposit.  Deposits are 40% of total spend or a minimum of $400 whichever the greater

Please note; Deposits once paid are not transferable and not refundable as we hold that date for you and thereby refuse other bookings

On receipt of the deposit, we will send out a booking confirmation to you

Final numbers, final details and balance of payment are due 5 full working days prior to the event. So, for example, we call you on Monday for a Saturday event

We accept; Visa & Mastercard or you can make payment via eft transfer.  American Express attracts a 1.5% surcharge.  Cheques are acceptable but need to be banked 7 working days prior to an event
