Made fresh. In house. By hand.
Connecting you with a personal and sustainable approach to your menu
Food is what brings people together at an event. At MCEC, we make sure that when people connect over our food, they’re connecting over the absolute best Victoria has to offer. We have designed our menu planning guide to suit the range of different events hosted at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) and also to be completely flexible and personalised. Whether it’s a morning tea, lunch, gala dinner, cocktail party or something a little different, we’ll work with you to create a menu suited to your event needs.
Made fresh, in-house
We believe the key to creating great food is attention to detail. That’s why all our catering is created in-house and sourced from the best. Our in-house team is made up of some of the best and brightest culinary experts from around the globe who have the skills, passion and creativity to handcraft any dish to perfection.
We’re proud to support local and sustainable
Our team regularly visits local farmers and producers across Victoria to find the freshest seasonal produce available, along with Victoria’s finest wineries to handpick our wine list. By choosing local, we’re supporting the growth of small businesses, decreasing our food miles and putting Victorian producers on the world stage for MCEC’s many visitors to enjoy.
Let our chefs help create your menu
We take the same, handcrafted approach to our menus as we do with our dishes. Our chefs offer expert advice based on the freshest seasonal produce available and for larger events, join us in our kitchen for a menu tasting to make sure we’ve got it just right. We’ll make sure your visitors have a culinary experience designed specifically to their needs.
All dietary requirements covered
We can cater for any dietary requirement and our chefs create similar-looking dishes for those with specific requests to keep them from feeling left out. Chat with us about adapting menu items if your guests have particular dietary needs. Many of our menu options can be made gluten free or dairy free, on request.
Victorian boutique wine matched to your dishes
We don’t serve a house wine at MCEC. Instead our wine list is rotated regularly to showcase different regions across Victoria.
