VENDOR SPOTLIGHT - Crusta Woodfired
HOW DO YOU FIT INTO THE WEDDING SCENE? WHAT DO YOU DO?
We have been catering for weddings for the last 8 years.
Even without social media we are almost 100% booked out throughout the year.
We love what we do and still getting inspired through our work.
We offer a complete service, from afternoon grazing tables to dessert buffets, service and bar staff.
WHAT MAKES YOU, YOU? WHY ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS IN YOUR FIELD?
Our focus is on fresh, local ingredients. We buy our produce at the local farmers market and enjoying a close relationship with local farmers and businesses.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF VIBE?
We are offering a rustic, down to earth, fresh and traditional Italian/ Mediterranean catering
experience. We deliver a very intimate food experience, cooked with passion and with an eye to detail.
HIT US WITH YOUR BEST WEDDING TIPS!
I really enjoy cocktail style weddings as they are more relaxed, interactive and more fun. It’s nice when the food finds you rather then you have to chase it. Two thirds of our weddings are cocktail style and I believe it works well. It’s less stagnant and everything flows better.
WE WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU MORE...3,2,1 K GO!
I started my business through my passion for cooking and catering. I used to have a restaurant in New Zealand but didn’t enjoy the day to day stress and not having time for my other passions. I love cooking with fire, fresh ingredients and the connections to the seasons and our local farmers. I live on a 50 acre farm at Broken Head, close to Byron Bay.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WEDDINGS FOR?
WHICH AREAS DO YOU SERVICE AND WHEN SHOULD COUPLES BOOK YOU?
I cater all the way from Bellingen to Noosa. We normally get booked a year in advance but sometimes we do have availability more short term.
HIT US WITH THE HARD THRUTHS, HOW DO YOU RATE HELP ME HITCH - WEDDING COORDINATORS?
Renee and Help me Hitch have been a great partner for all the weddings we have catered and done together. It always feels very personal working with her. She is extremely professional, eager to help and never have experienced any surprises or hiccups at weddings she's coordinated. She is great in what she does.
