Dorothy Eller, Chef
Based in Mordialloc Ph: 0418 513 148
The key focus of my catering company is on dinner parties in private homes, for 8 to 20 guests, ranging from a 3 course feast to an 8-course degustation experience with matching wines.
A new menu is created for each function, dependent on the cuisine requested and dietary requirements, the style of the function (whether sit-down or buffet) and the degree of formality sought, as well produce availability and seasonality.
Organic ingredients are used when available and fresh produce is sourced from local growers. A laminated menu, detailing the food sources, is produced for each function.
I’m a qualified Chef and have been following a vegetarian way of life for 35 years. Regarding food styles, my desire is to harness both the rustic nature of vegetarian ingredients and the intellectual/structural power of classic cuisine and bring them together. I’m also a firm believer in the 3 elements of nourishment; the air you breathe, the ideas you ponder and the food you eat. For me, special-occasion food, just like every-day food, has to be beautiful to look at, fun and exciting, taste incredible (plate-licking is encouraged), and be nutritionally balanced. There’s a certain energy level input required from the person preparing the food in order to achieve this level of pleasure for the diners. Food is honest; it’s easy to tell when food’s been treated with caring, respect and excitement and glaringly obvious when it hasn’t. For me it’s a transference of energy and it shows every time and is a major contributor to nourishment.
