Our Team

European Catering was established by Arnold and Carlo Huber in August 1991. The Huber brothers’ passion for cooking was initially kindled in their homeland, Austria’s rural Styrian region where their parents utilised home-grown produce from their organic backyard and farm to feed the family of six. Following their passion, they both completed their qualifications from Restaurant & Catering College then worked and managed several 5-star hotels and restaurants in Austria and Switzerland.

With their wealth of knowledge and passion for culinary art and fine dining, the talented brothers embarked on their journey to Sydney, Australia to where European Catering was born. A few short years after European Catering has quickly come to be recognised among Sydney’s most acclaimed catering firms and awarded with Gold Licence Caterer and other industry accreditations. European Catering thrives on the endless creativity of the duo of gastronomic talents and the use of fresh and locally sourced produce that put forward natural flavours, full of tantalising surprises to the table.
