We make ridiculously delicious food using local and seasonal produce. Hearty and bold dishes that people want to eat.
We believe that business is a force for good, and we're proud to be the first and only B Corp caterer in Australia.
Waste is a failure of the imagination. This is the moto that drives our creative process and our journey to zero waste.
Dan the Man cooking is an event catering and planning company focused on creating food experiences that rock your radishes. We use seasonal and local produce that are intelligently put together to create dishes that people want to eat. Aside from making ridiculously delicious food, we are on a journey to zero waste, connecting undervalued resources in our community.
Whether it's feeding your loved ones or hosting a kick-ass party, we're all about helping you serve something special that fits your budget and rocks your radishes. It's a simple formula, really: use the best seasonal produce available from our local suppliers to create thoughtful dishes, that people want to eat. No bulking agents, no "looks pretty but tastes meh" and no waste.
Your catering is sorted but the rest of the event isn’t. We can help you fill in the gaps where you don't feel you’re 100% on top of it. From a single waitperson who can help you serve and clean up, to more complete packages with floor and bar staff, drinks and styling; basically, we can interfere as much or as little as you need.
And if you're trying to put together something really different, we would love to help you with concept creation, next level styling or event theming to really transform your event into something as special as the occasion you’re celebrating.
