How do ‘tastings’ work?

Here at Baba Ganoush Catering we hold complimentary tastings on our chef's table so that you can not only taste the food ahead of your special event but also meet the team who will be working to make your event something that you will really love.

What are your requirements of a venue/catering space?

Over the last few years Baba have worked in a range of exciting venues and catering sites. We have enjoyed the challenges and rewards of working in places where some caterers dare not go!

However there are a few things we require access too…

  • Ample Power Supply
  • Running Water
  • Catering preparation area (minimum 3m/3m)
  • We always arrange a site visit before an event if it is a new to us just to go over our requirements.


Wedding Planning:

We like to make sure every part of your wedding catering is planned to perfection! However with the rise of DIY weddings we have found that hiring a wedding planner is imperative for your day to run smoothly if you are indeed trying to do it all yourself. We have listed a few that we love to work with below:

Kook Events 
LND Events
