Catering for special events, inspired by grand ideas, tailored to every season

With youthful determination, and inspired by celebrity chef Keith Floyd’s theatrical cooking style, Dan set out to share his passion for food with the world. What started with monthly dinner parties turned into full-time catering at big events. Countless dishwasher loads later, Dan The Man Cooking was born.

Whether you’d like a grazing table, canapes, or themed food, whatever the occasion, Dan’s your Man.

Their bespoke menus only use fresh, seasonal produce, which inspires them to create and experiment with dishes and flavours. All their ingredients are of exceptional quality, traceable to local growers, and sourced in ethical ways.


Dan the Man holds big plans for the future – they’re on a mission to become the first zero-waste event caterer in Australia, and they hope to set a standard for other catering companies in the future.
