FAQs about finger food catering in Melbourne
What are some gluten free finger food ideas?
Fresh fruit and veggie skewers, quality cured meats such as prosciutto, cheese and dips all make great gluten free finger foods. Corn chips, popcorn and plain potato chips are usually gluten- free too, and are easy options to place in bowls around the room for nibbles.
When it comes to hot foods, it's best to avoid anything that's battered unless it's noted as being gluten free, as it's likely been dredged in wheat flour.
Are there minimum order amounts in Melbourne?
Yes. Most Melbourne caterers do require a minimum amount, but it does start quite low at about $50 for a good handful of suppliers. That's about what you'd spend to cater for five people, so the changes of you covering the minimum costs are high.
Can catering be delivered anywhere in Melbourne?
Yes! If you’re having your Christmas party outside of the office, as long as you’re in the Melbourne area, you’ll be able to get the order delivered to your venue of choice.
Do you need to pay for delivery of corporate catering in Melbourne?
Sometimes; it depends on which caterer you order from. That said, there are more than 50 partners in our marketplace that don't charge anything for delivery of corporate catering in Melbourne. And that includes food options like Italian, Middle Eastern, salads, Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese and plenty of traditional catering options.
