Forage and Graze is a small family run business. We choose to cater just ten weddings or private dinners a year, offering a personalised, tailored service to our clients.... we get to know you really well over the period leading up to your event and this close relationship ensures we get it just right. Magic happens on the day of your wedding or event.
Forage and Graze has established a reputation for banquet style dining. If you can imagine the warmth and familiarity of sitting around with a group of close friends, and passing dishes of food around the table. We aim to recreate this feel. It is a shared feast on platters with sides and accompaniments all placed down the centre of the table ... and as dishes are finished the next dishes come out. Not so much courses, as one long progressive banquet. We've found this style of dining helps ease what can be a slightly awkward social occasion, with guests sometimes not knowing each other that well....it helps guests to meet each other across the table, gives them common ground, a job to do, something to talk about.
Campbell works closely with an established local network of seafood and free range heritage meat producers, cheese makers and fruit and vegetable growers, to tailor a fresh, seasonal menu and create an unforgettable dining experience for you, your family and friends. We like to call our producer/growers ‘our local hero's’ ….and they really are our hero's. Every menu we create starts by planning ahead with our producers to work out what will be in season at the time of your event…and we can work with them to ensure any special requests are catered for (within season) for your tailored menu.
