Our Delicious Plated Packages For Our Dinner Party Catering

There are some occasions where plated meals are perfect for your formal gathering. Burgers and chips simply will not do, and the food you eat should be representative of the event. This is why Going Gourmet provide the best dinner party catering Melbourne has to offer. We have pleased all of our customers, and we want to please you too.

 

We offer a traditional alternate drop service that is a popular pick for all formal events, such as weddings or a dinner party anywhere in Melbourne. We also offer a new shared format service that is an entertaining and conversation evoking way to conduct a formal sit down meal. They allow your guests to taste a variety of our delicious meals rather than the traditional alternate drop that often accompany a sit down function.

 

We aim to provide exceptional meals, with a premium catering service. This allows you to sit back with piece of mind that your event is well looked after, allowing you to enjoy the perks along with your guests.

 

Both styles of Plated Packages are inclusive of fabulous chefs to cook your mouth watering meal, wait staff to serve your guests, porcelain plates, polished stainless steel cutlery, service ware and all the equipment we require.

 

We have great options for you to choose from

Our delicious Plated Main packages are a fantastic idea for all sorts of sit down events. They are ideal for weddings, premium dining experiences, dinner parties, birthdays and get-togethers. There are 4 common scenarios we recommend:

  • Roaming Canapés, Entrees and Main Course
