Food Trends 2013

Today people are increasingly becoming more aware of what food they put in their mouths with the uptake in requests for gluten-free food, restauranters and caterers are adding more options to their menus to cater for increased requests.

In a recent article in The Australian, celebrity claims that assist with weight loss, increased energy and improved health has meant that the sale of gluten-free foods in Australia and the US have increased dramatically. There is no doubt that there are specific medical conditions that recommend eating gluten-free products, however, more and more people are considering this option as well.

We have a number of yummy options available for events:

  • Chicken skewers with Indonesian peanut satay sauce
  • Barrumundi croquettes with preserved lemon mayonnaise

Check out the menus on our website for more gourmet options.

About me

Andrew Marno ☞

Andrew Marno has worked in the hospitality industry for 35 years. His career began in Noosa Headsworking in establishments such as Anita’s, The Lobster Trap and the 5 Star Sheraton Noosa. While living and working overseas he broadened his knowledge of and experience with international foods and ingredients.

Soon after returning to Australia Andrew opened his first restaurant, ‘AndaVanth’ in Milton, Qld with executive chef and business partner David Farmer, of Mount Lofty House (Adelaide Hills). AndaVanth was credited with many accolades over the years including a perfect score from the Courier Mail’s restaurant review in its opening year. It became a very popular Wedding Venue, in particular for Cocktail style receptions.

After 5 years he ventured to the West End district to open a more challenging establishment, ‘BIN 220’ Wine and Tapas bar. An extensive and international wine list, carefully selected by an award winning sommelier, complimented a refined, sophisticated menu. The modern offering in West End quickly became a popular venue for locals and others appreciating fine food and wine in a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Following this business Andrew opened the award winning ‘Seagrass’ Fish and Chippery, also on Brisbane’s
West End/South Brisbane border.

In 2008 Andrew was approached to cater for a ‘stand up’ cocktail-style function on a luxury vessel on the Brisbane River. This experience inspired him to meet a growing market for events designed for guests and hosts alike to mingle while still enjoying their food and beverages. ‘Standing Room Only Catering’ was born.

Now in it’s tenth year, Andrew works with Michelin star chefs and a highly experienced service team, and is constantly researching local and international trends in order to offer contemporary menus. He and his team pride themselves on the delivery of outstanding customer service from the initial enquiry, working to ensure a seamless and delicious event for every client.
