FRESH NEW SPIN ON EVENT CATERING

Ramsay’s on the Run started a new business Ramsay without the f this year, and is now the caterer of choice for the greater area of the Whitsunday’s, we cater from Mackay through to Townsville. I never expected to start this business, it just kind of happened, through a need for something different for the wonderful area that I live in.

We are not the normal catering company, recipes are inspired by conversations with our producers and our field work, which includes interviews with clients with interesting memories of foods and childhood.

We pride ourselves on cultivating long term relationships with our farmers, hunters, fishermen and foragers, giving us access to rare ingredients we feel honoured to work with. All our purveyors keep sustainability high on the agenda, and we in turn constantly keep this complex topic at the fore of our development strategy.

We put the ingredients at the centre of our cuisine, aiming to show them in their most natural and delicious form. We keep messing around to a minimum, preserving fresh, delicious and traditional flavour. If you are looking for a wedding, event catering company with a difference, then we may be able to help you. We also do private cooking classes, from yourself to 16 clients. Children’s cooking classes are a must in this ever busy world, I am always amazed to hear that young adults can not cook, after being with us they walk out proud!

Coeliacs often cringe at the mere mention of the words “catered event”.

It usually means platters of sandwiches and sausage rolls, and tiers of cakes and slices chock full of gluten, dairy and sugar. And that means going hungry. Or at least sitting in the corner nibbling on a blackened emergency banana or squashed gluten free bar.

All that is going to change for the greater area of the Whitsundays, with one of the area’s hottest new caterers, offering gluten free, sugar free, vegetarian and even vegan sweet and savoury dishes.

WHAT DO YOU BUY THE PERSON IN YOUR LIFE THAT HAS EVERYTHING

As the festive season draws ever closer, thousands of shoppers will frequent online and offline outlets in search of the ideal gifts for their loved ones.

Unfortunately, although you may find it easy to shop for many of your friends and family members, at Ramsay’s on the run we recognise how there will always undoubtedly be a certain special someone for whom it seems impossible to buy! Regardless of whether this loved one is a spouse, relative or close friend, many of us face the annual gift-giving dilemma of finding presents which will suit the person in your life who seemingly already has everything they could ever want or need!

Fortunately, at Ramsay’s on the run,  we have devised a solution to this dreaded festive dilemma; private staff support! By giving the gift of time in the form of temporary, part-time or full-time private staff assistance, you can reward the person in your life who seemingly has everything with a thoughtful present from which they will benefit throughout the year.
