For us – food is about flavour. Packing punches with every bite.
We don’t eat for fuel, but instead we design our lives around awesome experiences that are totally food centric.
Because food makes people happy and we love being a part of that. Our chefs are all fully qualified and world class. But don’t trust us – book a function and we guarantee your taste buds will party harder than your feet do.
Chef - Matt Yurko
Matt Yurko designed this baby on the back of loads of friends asking him to create something amazing for some party they were throwing. Because creating and eating food is our life – he was happy to oblige… but his full time gig as a chef always got in the way. So it’s easy to see why The Canapé Project was born.
He worked in world-class European and Australian restaurants for 20 years before making the beautiful Sunshine Coast home. And we’re here to stay.
Matt works with you to create a ‘lip-licking experience’ that will have you and your guests talking for months after your event is over.
Check out our menu options and choose from menu’s already laid out for you (we’ve picked our faves, plus the ones our customers can’t live without) – or create your own from the full menu listed.
A team extrAORdinary
When you book a chef with us for the evening, often Matt will be the man who arrives. We often have a full schedule and run multiple events on the same day, so we have a team of chefs and waitstaff that work with Matt to bring his vision to life. Your personal chef will be confirmed a week prior to the event.
We work with some amazing wait staff. Matt will let you know how many people you’ll need to carry food, and he can help with bar staff if you need them too. You’re welcome to provide your own wait staff, however, we recommend using ours as they know the food, are covered by our insurance, and ensure your event runs smoothly. Cost for wait staff hire is $38 per hour, including GST, for a minimum of three hours.
If you’ve worked with us before and have a favourite waitress – please ask for them! They’ll be flattered and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
