Many of you love the idea of throwing parties, but are either nervous about making a great impression, time poor, think that it's too expensive to do a good job, or just "all too much effort". While I maintain that the only ingredients I used to become a confident cook are a healthy appitite, cook books and a bit of spare time, cooking's not for everyone, so I'd like to introduce you to sassy bites.

The three greatest loves in my life are family, friends and food. So for me, a combination of the three is the perfect recipe for a good time.

sassy bites started as a result of this mix, along with my passion for sharing tasty, nourishing, quality, food with the people I love, and has evolved into something I'm honoured to be able to share with your families and friends.

Specialising in family celebrations at your home and catering for food allergies and intolerances, I also love creating themed menus to suit your preferences. From completely gluten and/or dairy free, to paleo, keto and low carb canapé menus. Why not celebrate the guest of honour's favourite food -  perhaps a pork party, or cheese celebration... A Mexican fiesta or beef bonanza... Or how about subtly weaving Australia's deliciously subtle native ingredients into the menu for your summertime backyard bash...?

...why take the risk, I say!
my philosophy

It is still fashionable for great chefs to spend hours creating the perfect bite-sized manicured morsels that look too good to eat. While I have a great appreciation for this style of impressive canapé catering, I prefer to take a more practical approach.

Growing up in a family who loves & looks forward to great food, I find there's nothing worse than leaving a catered event feeling a little 'unsatisfied' and hungry for more. 

I love variety. While there's something very special and intimate about cooking a meal to share with friends at the table, due to timing, this can often leave the host in the kitchen for most of the night. Hosting a cocktail party means the host need not be in the kitchen for large chunks of precious party time.

I describe my food as 'rustic', 'wholesome' and 'hearty'. While my style is creative, my menu is not making any culinary breakthroughs - rather offering no-fuss suggestions based on what people love.
