L’amour Catering founder and creative director John Mulligan has spent the last 21 years refining his skills in restaurants and catering and has developed a true love for creating fine food for events. Early in his career he apprenticed as a chef at three chef’s hat restaurants in Sydney, where he learnt the fundamentals that underpin his food philosophy.
Whilst many of his alumni went on to helm their own restaurant kitchens, John made the move to catering, preferring the ever-changing landscape of events over the routine of a kitchen. It’s made for an interesting journey, over the year’s he has seen and done it all – from catering for International music and film stars to politicians and high net worth clients, from back yards to ballrooms, large scale music festivals to glittering galas and charity events. Through it all, he has learnt that his real passion lies with Weddings.
“I love the process, I am a family man myself and something about the ones you love coming together, working collaboratively on the food for such a special day really appeals to me.”
With weddings in focus, L’amour is at the forefront of developing new tastes and trends and translating them into unique ideas that reflect the feel of each individual client.
We aim to be your greatest resource, our team thrives on collaboratively working through the brief to deliver an experience beyond expectation.
