Fennel & Co. Catering is a multi-award-winning Newcastle catering company servicing weddings and events throughout the Hunter Valley, Central Coast and Port Stephens. Fennel & Co. Catering was created by husband-and-wife team James & Tess Borg. Their passion for delicious food and incredible service have earned them a reputation throughout the wedding industry as the best caterers in Newcastle and The Hunter Valley.
James is a qualified chef who began his career in his home town of Sydney, learning under Italian and French Chefs. As his career progressed, he found himself coming back to the flavours and cuisines he was surrounded by growing up in South-Western Sydney. His take on Modern-Australian cuisine sees South-East Asian and Middle-Eastern flavours weaved throughout Fennel & Co. Catering menus.
Tess is a front of house superstar; she found her place in hospitality and quickly rose through the ranks into management roles. This dynamic duo creates the ultimate catering package as Tess not only manages all of the front of house staff and operations but assists with all event planning processes as well. Creating relationships with her clients is extremely important to Tess, knowing exactly who she is working with and how she can create a unique and memorable event through food and service.
Although Fennel & Co. Catering are renowned for their incredible wedding catering they do offer their services to events of all sizes and styles: birthdays, private dinners, engagements, baby showers, bridal showers, wakes and corporate catering. We can cater to all needs: from scrumptious canapes, to bountiful banquets and marvellous grazing stations. No matter the occasion, if delicious food and attentive personalised service is what you’re after Fennel & Co. is your caterer of choice.
The success of Fennel & Co. Catering has led to the expansion of the company which also includes Cranky Chef Catering (Corporate Catering and Home Delivery), Mockingbird Café Newcastle & Mockingbird Café Hunter Valley at Tatler Wines.
