Your Premium Corporate Catering Questions, Answered.

What’s the most extravagant or challenging catering project you’ve worked on? How did you deal with it?

Chef Tim did a molecular gastronomy event once where BWC made things look like other things – ‘salmon roe’ was actually carrot pearls; Chef Tim made an edible rock – which was actually potato – we had grown men all standing together and giggling about eating a rock. It was awesome.

Is Boardwalk Catering Gold Licenced?

That’s right. Our gold licence signifies our commitment to adhering to the strictest food safety and hygiene regulations. This ensures your guests can enjoy our premium corporate catering services at your Vivid Sydney 2024 corporate function with complete peace of mind.

How long has Boardwalk Catering been in business?

At Boardwalk Catering, we have been in the corporate catering business for more than a decade. We understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented by big Sydney events like Vivid Sydney, and we leverage our expertise to create truly bespoke culinary experiences.

How important is food safety to Boardwalk Catering?

Our commitment to maintaining the highest standards involves continuous monitoring of our cool rooms and freezers 24 hours a day. A senior chef oversees the checking of meat, fish, and fruits and vegetables for correct receiving parameters, ensuring their freshness and suitability for consumption. Every step in our food safety protocol is meticulously followed, from proper storage practices to a commitment to utilising everything ordered within a tight 1–3-day window, making sure that every ingredient contributes to the culinary excellence for which Boardwalk Catering is renowned. Almost all of our senior chefs are Food Safety Supervisors and have a detailed understanding of food safety protocols. This element has always been a priority for Boardwalk Catering with a focus on food safety from day one. We use special food transport boxes when transporting high-risk food to see to it that it doesn’t remain at unsafe temperatures. In essence, our comprehensive quality assurance measures create a foundation where taste, presentation, and safety harmoniously come together to make every catering experience shine.

Does Boardwalk Catering prioritise ethical sourcing?

Absolutely! In addition to culinary excellence, Boardwalk Catering places a strong emphasis on ethical and sustainable practices, particularly in sourcing ingredients. We are committed to using locally and ethically sourced components, with a special focus on line-caught seafood. This dedication doesn’t only sort out the freshness and quality of our offerings challenge but also aligns with our broader commitment to responsible and sustainable culinary practices. We believe every dish should delight and reflect a conscientious approach to sourcing.

How can I know if a venue cost is a good deal?

Understanding venue costs can be tricky. A seemingly expensive venue might be the perfect fit for your event’s style and function type. Conversely, a cheaper venue might be inconveniently located, hindering guest attendance for a corporate event. Ultimately, the value depends on how well the space aligns with your needs. If the venue allows you to achieve your event goals, then it’s a good deal.

How can we know if the premium corporate catering cost is a good deal?

One word for you: Compare. Check to see if the corporate caterer is on par with other caterers of similar style/offering. If in doubt, just ask. Our pricing structure for corporate functions considers factors like menu selections, staffing requirements, and potential kitchen set-up needs. We may need to bring in additional equipment for some events, which will be reflected in the cost. Generally, corporate events tend to be slightly cheaper due to their shorter duration (typically evening events held after work hours).

What role does a premium catering service play at corporate events?

Beyond providing food and beverages, a skilled catering service can act as an icebreaker at corporate events. Our team facilitates conversation starters, offers discreet service, and even assists with time management so that your Vivid Sydney corporate function runs smoothly and on schedule. We strive to provide a seamless experience to make sure your guests are well-fed and comfortable while remaining unobtrusive and enhancing the overall flow of the event.

How does Boardwalk Catering handle the catering process for Vivid Sydney 2024 corporate functions?

Knowing time is of the essence, Boardwalk Catering provides efficient recommendations regarding food and beverage options for your corporate function. We prioritise menus with non-dripping dishes to avoid messy situations with professional attire. Additionally, we emphasise clear descriptions of menu items so that your guests know what they’re selecting and can make informed choices.
