At Black Hen Kitchen, we like to work closely with our clients to design a menu that best suits their needs. Our food centres around the idea of family, sharing and togetherness and so our menus are styled to reflect those values. Family style long lunches, generous grazing tables and mezze style canapes are some of our most popular choices.

Below are just a few examples of the type of food we love to cook and can provide for your next event. Whilst we cater predominately in the Southern Highlands, we are happy to travel, too.
