There is no love sincerer than the love of food. If you agree with this saying, then our chefs at The Event Planner can ensure you will find true love in our menus of delicious bite – size canapés. With a universe of incredible dishes, it is sometimes hard to decide which one you love best, so our canapés catering can take that weight off your shoulders, giving guests a taste of everything. They can be the perfect start to make your guests feel welcome at any party. Canapés catering is also a wonderful introduction to the food which will be offered later at an event, taking your guests on a culinary adventure.
Our highly sought-after chefs use flair and imagination, coupled with the best fresh ingredients, to produce unusual canapés that are bursting with flavour and colour, to the delight of our clients. Thankfully, at The Event Planner we are used to canapés catering for parties of all sizes and have an army of the best chefs, hosts and waiters on speed dial.

Spitbraai Catering

Spitbraai’s are the perfect addition to summer celebrations. Whether you’re looking for informal dining at your summer party or want to treat your guests at the company conference, they create a relaxed outdoor vibe.

Our spitbraai menus are amazingly flexible and include a wide range of different meat styles from traditional Whole Lamb to Beef & Chicken Rolls. As we have hosted so many Spitbraais we have hundreds of tried and tested chefs at our fingertips, so we can ensure we will be able to put on your dream dishes, whether they are themed, suiting a particular national cuisine or for an outdoor wedding.

At The Event Planner we believe our Spitbraai catering menus are a feast for the eyes, however bespoke your event may be, we can create a unique menu to match. You can opt for a ‘build your own’ summer menu, adding any ingredients you wish. This also allows you to ensure you have great food, while still keeping a close eye on your budget.

Summer or winter, what could be better than spending the warm day or a cold crisp evening enjoying a fantastic Spitbraai. Our spitbraais are perfect for any outdoor corporate event or family function. With succulent, fresh meats and a range of side options we can really help you put on a great event.

Food stalls

Food stalls are a very popular choice for corporate events but are versatile enough to incorporate at any event.

Our food stalls can be set up outside for informal summer parties, or within your chosen venue when the weather isn’t up to scratch and can include canapés or bowl food and mini plates or be centre stage as an interactive food theatre.

Inspired by world cuisine, the style and content of food stalls truly bespoke to your event can range from sushi to sorbet, BBQ, afternoon tea to desserts; offering amazing flexibility and the perfect opportunity to mix cuisines, styles of cooking and add a touch of theatre and variety.

Our food stalls are not only used for public but also private events. They represent a perfect surrounding to display hot and cold buffets. With this type of catering culinary delights take the forefront and an entertaining factor can be added through show cooking of any type of food you desire.

Hot Buffet Catering

A little less formal than a 3 course dinner, but no less delicious. Our buffets allow guests the flexibility of enjoying a substantial meal without the formality of a served meal.

We offer a range of hot and cold buffets. Whether it is our set package options or building your own bespoke menu, we have plenty of menu options to suit all budgets and taste.

At The Event Planner our buffets can either be served on disposable plates with disposable cutlery, or on proper crockery with uniformed service staff to help serve and clear. Should you choose this option as the main food for your event or as an evening option, we have the package for you.

The buffets we offer are suitable for any occasion; for standing and seated receptions or any type of private event at home or wherever else you wish. All the gourmet dishes and products we offer are carefully selected, taking into account your wishes, seasonality, the type of event, the structure and number of guests.The fusion of different flavors is then put on display on the neatly decorated buffet table.
