At The Wingala Chef, we are experts in large event catering. Whether your guest list for your landmark celebration, wedding or corporate event is 20 or 200, leave the food preparation and service to us, so you can relax. Our team of seasoned culinary and service staff look forward to managing every last detail, so you can focus time and energy on what’s important.

Your landmark event in safe hands

We understand that weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and other important moments of celebration deserve the finest, freshest and most thoughtfully tailored food.

Whether you have a specific style and focus in mind or are looking for more guidance and advice around contemporary ideas, we listen to what you want, meaning you will always get the perfect food offering that fits the occasion.

Be that a formal sit-down meal or a more casual, relaxed buffet or cocktail setting, we have the right event catering solution and the right staff to deliver on it.

The options really are endless. An elegant backyard wedding, starting with a series of canapes, building to more substantial offerings later in the evening? An Americana-themed 50th birthday bash, designing the food around memories and personality of the guest of honour? We can do either. And, in fact, we have done both, with great success.

Our flexibility and responsiveness to your individual needs mean that even on a grand scale our service remains intimate and friendly as well as professional.

Every detail taken care of

With important, large-scale events, planning is vital. And we leave nothing to chance.

Our initial conversations set out to discover what you want out of your event and the catering for it. And the menu evolves as we discuss numbers, location and your aspirations for the event.

We also seek, where possible, an at-venue consultation, to get a sense of space and place, and in turn leading into menu and service planning.

And for your really special occasion, we like to drill down and find out if there’s something you really love, a favourite dish or flavour or element we can work into the offering. We pride ourselves that every event we cater for is unique.

The big day, with little stress

On the day of the event, we manage every element of the logistics. We will have agreed on the menus and final details in advance, but there is still plenty to do – for us, not you.

We arrive at the venue as early as possible to set up, organise serving plates, crockery, displays and run our wait staff – drawn from our unrivalled network of service staff – through what’s needed.

The bigger the event, the more of us there will be to make sure it all runs smoothly, but our level of diligence and professionalism remains the same.

“There was not one out of 120 guests at my wife’s 50th that didn’t comment on the SENSATIONAL food. Don’t know how you kept so many well-fed and happy but it made the day (along with the cocktails!). Your whole team did a superb job.” – Doug

Like we were never there...

We always leave a venue as if we had never been there.

The last thing you want to do at the end of a successful hosting experience is spend time tidying up. We’re there to pack everything away, clean up and leave the place spotless, just as we found it. One less job for you and much less stress.

Our commitment to this precise level of service and professionalism is a core value we live every day.
