Sydney, the sun dips lower, casting long shadows across the worn cricket pitch, its surface etched with the nicks of countless deliveries. Memories surface – Dad’s gentle hand guiding yours, the thud of the ball evading your grasp on the boundary, the echoing cheers and groans that filled the air on those endless summer afternoons.

Father’s Day. A time to celebrate the men who shaped our lives, the quiet heroes who taught us to throw a curveball, face our fears, and navigate this sometimes bumpy road called life. But in the hustle and bustle of modern Sydney, carving out that special moment can feel like another item on the ever-growing to-do list.

This year, let’s rewrite the script.

Food is more than sustenance. It’s a conversation starter, a bridge between generations, a silent expression of love. Boardwalk Catering’s curated menus, featuring the finest local produce and international flavours, cater to appetites—just as they do to emotions.

We understand that time is a precious commodity. That’s why Boardwalk Catering takes care of everything, from menu planning to flawless execution. Our Gold Licence Accreditation and these ravishing reviews can attest to that. Let us handle the logistics, while you focus on what truly matters – creating lasting memories with the man who deserves it most. Call 0434 917 069 or email [email protected]!

5 Delightful Father’s Day Catering Options in Sydney 2024 (Boardwalk Catering)

#1 Grazing Stations

For the discerning paternal figure, instead of the charcuterie board cliché, explore options like a meticulously assembled antipasti grazing station. It boasts an array of cured meats, imported & local cheeses, marinated vegetables, and a selection of homemade relishes and mustards. What this does is that it allows the family to nibble and socialise at their leisure, eliminating the pressure to, ehem, “congregate” around a smoky BBQ.

Our “Father’s Day Feast” features a variety of interactive stations, including the overflowing seafood ice bars. Cheese aficionados can rejoice in a dedicated cheese station, while dads with a hankering for carving can opt for the whole-baked honey leg ham. The “build-your-own slider” station caters to individual preferences, and a dedicated dessert station ensures that sweet ending to a dear celebration. Setup charges apply, but the convenience and variety offered by Boardwalk Catering gives Father’s Day catering experience that “extra-” to the “ordinary”.

#2 Platters

For a sophisticated Father’s Day Catering option, consider a charcuterie platter that brims with artisanal cheeses, cured meats, seasonal fruits, and accompaniments like cornichons and Marcona almonds. Alternatively, a sandwich platter provides a delightful mix of high-end gourmet creations, featuring both classic favourites and innovative flavour combinations on freshly baked breads. Quiche platters offer a centrepiece option, perfect for brunch or a lighter dinner, with an assortment of savoury and vegetarian fillings. Seafood platters, overflowing with fresh, chilled selections, are a crowd-pleaser, ideal for those seeking that ocean taste.

These are just a sampling of the Father’s Day catering options we provide here at Boardwalk Catering. For a comprehensive platters list, see our platters menu here.

#3 Spanish Paella Party

For a more interactive experience, consider a live paella station. Witness the rhythmic clatter of pans as chefs prepare this quintessential Spanish rice dish, traditionally brimming with chicken, chorizo, seafood, or a vegetarian medley. The communal aspect of watching the paella come to life adds a touch of theatricality to the celebration.
