The heavens have opened – Open Table catering

By: S Davey

Open Table is a Byron Bay catering service creating dishes that are an exotic alternative to the usual function food. They showcase the many facets of international fare – from contemporary European, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, North African, and Asian influences. Their menus include: Indian Feast, Mexican Fiesta, Moorish/ Middle Eastern, Byron Bay Hinterland BBQ, Tapas and more. There is also an extensive and delicious range of dessert choices.

Another catering option is the Breakfast menu, which could be very welcome as a unique event to give, or a soulful start to the day after the night before. The Moorish selections feature strongly at Open Table; it’s a cuisine that has had substantial influences on dishes across many regions, and eating them is a gastronomic gift! 

Owner and head chef Ronit Rabbaz has Morroccan heritage and has lived in a number of overseas locations, making her highly qualified to bring people the many cultural features of Moorish food and international fusion cuisine. 

Open Table have a policy of using fresh, local, organic where possible ingredients: you will see Alstonville chicken, Nimbin Dairy cheeses, Stone & Wood beer batter, Byron Bay tempeh, Casino lamb, Bangalow duck, Myocum ricotta and locally grown fresh produce on their menus. They also have a ‘preparation onsite’ policy, which means vibrant looking and tasting spreads.

I have attended a number of events that were fully catered by Open Table, with impressive selections and really flavoursome food, but they also have other catering options. I have been to one party where Open Table boosted the host’s menu with a couple of exotic dishes. 

With the festive season approaching, a catering service may be just what you need for the end-of-year celebrations. You could also give someone, or yourself, the fantastic gift of an Open Table Cooking Workshop – these relatively new classes come with rave reviews and returning customers.

There are many workshop themes such as Moorish Tantalising Tastes, Paleo Mediterranean, and Exotic Vegetarian Feast to name a few.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
