About Adorable Katering Canapes

Meet Kate Broadhurst, mother of four boys (yes four boys!) and founder of Adorable Katering. Food consumes Kate’s everyday life. From the moment she wakes until her head hits the pillow in the evening that’s all she thinks about! Kate’s food philosophy is simple:

'Food brings people together, it makes each occasion memorable and is a reflection of how we feel about those that we share our table with. For me, having the privilege of providing catering for our clients’ special events and occasions is an honour and I feel blessed every day because I get to do what I love. It just doesn’t get much better than that’.

Adorable Katering Canapés (formerly Affordable Katering) was established by Kate Broadhurst over 15 years ago.

Kate, who has a background in hospitality, was continually being asked by friends if she could recommend a reliable local, small to medium sized caterer that offered affordable fresh food. None came to mind. Other caterers were either good but too expensive or at the other end of the spectrum, inexpensive but offering inferior food quality (pre prepared or frozen food!)

Recognising the need for an affordable, quality and freshly hand made catering service, Kate created Adorable Katering Canapés and the journey has exceeded even her expectations.

‘When I first started it was on a small scale …. well it had to be – raising four young boys is time consuming to say the least! As the business demands grew I quickly recognised that I could no longer manage everything on my own so decided to look around for mentors, savvy business advisers and people with inspirational management ideas. The seeds for my perfect business were sown, and from this a treasure has grown - Adorable Katering Canapés.’
