What's Trending in 2013

Everything old is brand new again with classic familiar meats are making their big comeback! In fact, a really popular way of presenting these classic courses is through a delectable menu with several smaller courses to give a leaner, cleaner look, paired with wines appropriate for the course. We also welcome back to the table mini desserts and bite-sized canapés.

Ethnic foods such as Dim Sum and East Indian are becoming more and more traditional, shifting from the fusion creations and are slowly incorporating themselves into trendy-themed catering. We're also seeing weddings menus with cross-culture inspirations on the rise, blending two types of cuisines featuring elements of two destinations with a spectacular effect. This has been so much fun for our team.

Long live the martini – it simply refuses to die! In fact, it even reinvented itself with different ingredients such as Champagne, Saki, flavored Vodkas, and a lot more. The mini-bottle of Champagne sipped with a straw is definitely still in, and better paired wines to suit the menu is definitely 'in vogue'. 

International beers are still on the menu with becks, stella, corona and heinekin continuing to please crowds time and time again.

We're holding out to see what irresistible blends summer has to offer in the cocktail department. Talk to us about pairing your menu with a signature cocktail for your event. We'd love to thrill your tastebuds.


End of year celebrations!

Heres what some of our clients said about their Laissez faires Christmas party last year 

"Laissez-faire went above and beyond catering duties to assist me in making our Christmas party a party to remember"  
Dec 2012 - National Art School 

"..we held our Christmas party at the Australian National Maritime Museum, it was seriously a night to remember. Emails have been pouring in from our attendees thanking us for putting on such a wonderful evening. Everyone enjoyed the food, the wine and the atmosphere, thank you very much for all your help"  
Dec 2012 - Australian National Maritime Museum

Laissez-Faire catered our Christmas Party and the overriding feedback I received about the food was that it was just amazing. A good number of people went out of their way to pass on congratulations about the food, venue and organisation. Everyone worked together to make the evening run seamlessly, and I was completely confident in all the staff and management. There was always open communication and everyone involved was helpful whenever there was anything we needed. I absolutely recommend Laissez-Faire and would choose them any time to work with again
Nov 2012 - Australian National Maritime Museum
