We're all about your convenience, here at TUL (have you used our brand spankin' new concierge service? It's pretty awesome). Last week we brought you Brisbane's best take home meals, and you loved it. So, to make you're life even easier, particularly where food and eating are concerned, we're bringing you the city's top-notch caterers.
And again, for your convenience, we've broken it into three decipherable catering categories; dinner parties, canapés, and corporate.
Eat your hearts out, Urban Listers.
The Whole Hog | Dinner Parties
PJ McMillan of Harveys Bar + Bistro
Offering three levels of catering, PJ leaves it up to you to choose. Go the complete package with all food, drinks, staff, cutlery, crockery, and glassware organised, have the food freshly prepared in the Harveys kitchen and then served in your home, or order the food and collect it yourself. With the ability to cater for two, to two hundred (or more!) guests, PJ not only does dinners and degustations, but cocktail parties, too.
Matt Moran and Ben Russell of ARIA
Matt Moran does it again with his epic catering service. Designed by the celebrity chef himself, and executed by ARIA Head Chef, Ben Russell, together they carefully craft a menu to suit your occasion. Whether it's a 3-course dinner, or 12-course degustation, they promise to impress the most discerning of guests.
The Servery @ Pearl Café
Looking for a lavish home-cooked feast? Upstairs at Pearl Café has got you covered. Enter the whole Bangalow pig, slow cooked lamb shoulder and crispy roast duck with sumptuous sides to compliment.
Philip Johnson of e'cco Bistro
He's the master of Brisbane's food domain. With e'cco Bistro and Bistro One Eleven behind him, I can tell you, the man knows how to cater. Philip Johnson promises a salubrious spread, if ever you've seen one.
Party Pleasers | Canapés and Light Meals
A menu dedicated solely to the BBQ. Um, yes please! Loaves and Fishes will come to your home and man your BBQ for you. We're salivating over the grass fed rib fillet with peppercorns and garlic, pork fillet with hoi sin glaze, and salmon fillet with salsa verde, just to name a few. They have a mean nibblies menu, too.
In A Pickle
This Camp Hill catering company is family owned. With a plethora of tasty morsels and wholesome homemade options, you'll love their cocktail menu. Feast on the classics—smoked salmon, caper and dill pikelets, crab cakes, and lamb cutlets with minted yoghurt.
We love this organic foodie haven, and they're catering capabilities live up to their top-notch reputation. Mondo Organics will tailor-make a menu to suit your function. Using only organic ingredients, they pride themselves on designing canapés, light meals, platters, salads, and cakes to suit specific dietary requirements.
With a large selection of hot and cold canapés, Lady Marmalade also specialise in ploughmans and antipasto platters. Catering to vegetarians and gluten intolerants, their catering menu changes based on the availability of fresh, seasonal produce.
Suit Sustenance | Corporate Catering
There's nothing like a good sandwich, and Pamela's Pantry does a damn fine job. With a selection of meat and salad fillings, they'll help put that business to bed - hopefully not in a self-induced food coma kind of way.
Stray from the corporate cold cut and order a selection of Jocelyn's scrumptious savories. Think thyme, olive and goats curd tarts, mini mushroom quiches, roast vegetable focaccias, potato and silverbeet tortillas, chickpea and feta fritters, and beef cheek pies.
Sage On Ann
Sage On Ann is pretty popular among the suited community. Plating up fruit, cheese, sandwich, and sweets platters, they're perfect for the office meeting and are sure to please the corporate crowd.
