Chef Susan Forster, with 30 years of hospitality experience, has always had a passion for good quality food both for herself as well as her customers. This commitment to high quality products was instilled during her apprenticeship at the Southern Cross Hotel in Melbourne and her subsequent years in both the Cairns and Brisbane Hilton Hotels where the best of the local produce was always on the menu.
This exposure to the high standard and variety of ingredients required in such reputable hotels laid a solid foundation of an expectation of outstanding quality in her produce which has endured throughout her career.
However, it wasn’t until Susan attended, as a guest, a ‘catered event’ which consisted of pre-packaged food, frozen foods and flavourless mass produced products that she decided to start her own business. Her passion for good quality food and commitment to using local, fresh and seasonal products is evident in her menu and her ability to adapt it to each occasion as all the food is made on site so any special food requests can be easily accommodated.
With a career showing such diversity from fine dining restaurants in five star hotels to cafes that focus on fresh local produce, Susan is committed to bringing these standards to you through her catering to home events and businesses from the suburb of Eltham.
So if you are looking for restaurant quality food served in the convenience and comfort of your own home or workplace and you expect high quality food with a focus on fresh, seasonal and local produce call and get a quote and discuss your own specific requirements for your special occasion.
We are not far away and work from our Eltham location.

I cannot thank you enough, Sue. The food was extraordinary. I had a vision of what I wanted for my 50th. A dinner party with a sense of glamour and decadence. The food was central to the night’s success. You did everything you possibly could to ensure a no stress party for me. I didn't have to lift a finger. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Wattle blossom catering to everyone I know!
