A buffet/shared platter experience involves tiered platters of food for each course placed in the centre of the table. Guests serve themselves, and hopefully others, as a lovely way of getting guests to interact with each other, and meeting new people. It really is a fun food experience.

Our buffet/shared platter menu options are carefully curated for each event.

They’re also a fabulous, modern choice for weddings.
