Looking for a caterer for a school event? …Piquant Catering understands schools.


Piquant Catering has a wealth of experience in catering for schools. Planning school events present with their own set of challenges and the Piquant team are well versed in working with the organisers to help overcome these hurdles and create an amazing event. We happily tailor menus and offerings to suit the budget of the event and any restrictions of the venue.

In my ten years here I have worked with quite a few catering companies, but none have matched the excellence that Piquant continually strives for and meets without fail. The team are a delight to work with, nothing is too much trouble and the food, of course, is delicious.

We are flexible in our approach and we do what we need to do to get the job done, which may mean catering out of the food technology kitchens and transporting food to the school hall or gymnasium or setting up a temporary kitchen in a marquee. We are there on the day to make sure the event comes together and you and your guests enjoy our delicious food and our friendly service.

We are experienced in catering for ticketed parent events as well, where the event budget becomes the most important factor of ticket sales. We will work with you to provide the best catering option to fit in with the ticket sale price.
