Stand Up Events

Our relaxed canape, slider and bowl food service for events where your guests are moving about and socializing, with the food following the guest.

We don’t do fancy little bite size food, we should warn you.

This style of service suits a broad range of events. 
- Family events where you don’t want the formality of a sitdown meal, but with our bowl food you still get the fullness of a meal. 
- Corporate events such as the opening of a venue, an after work retirement party, or a neighbourhood get together.

The menu consists of both hot and cold canapes, sliders for that step up in size, then our bowl food which gives you a chance to sample from our sitdown menu selections as a small portion.
