Our Food

We aim to source organic and ethically treated produce. Our providers are local and showcase the best that Tasmania has to offer. We are building relationships with smaller growers working with them when designing our seasonal menus. We offer simply cooked country style share plates on buffet and grazing tables, slow cooked meats, bursting with flavor, Paella’s, vibrant salads and vegetables with zesty dressings and salsas. We specialize in vegan and vegetarian choices.



"Silver Bean far exceeded our expectations catering for our 

wedding  at the Palais Theatre in Franklin. From the very beginning Ken and Gina  were warm and professional and strove to accommodate our vision for the  wedding. Their careful preparation meant that on the night everything  went off without a hitch. Our wedding had 85  guests with a mix of dietary requirements, and the range of dishes  ensured everyone was more than satisfied. We lost count at the number of  times our friends and family raved about the food. It was absolutely sensational. They showcased the local produce of the Huon Valley across a  variety of dishes including delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes and a  “Cuban style” whole pig smoked in a La Caja China Box. We also asked Silver Bean to provide a grazing table following the ceremony and a  dessert table, both of which were exceptional.

The  beautiful “Silver Bean” caravan was also a showstopper and really added  style to our wedding. It has two beer taps, which we made full use of:  thanks to Silver Bean knowing the local craft brewers we had a few kegs rolling all night. We would have absolutely no hesitation recommending Silver Bean for any future event."

"Recently I organized an event and needed, hot and cold, wow how lucky was I to use Silver Bean Events, professional, on time, and the most outstanding food I have had. With needing hot food with no kitchen, they had their own ability to bring hot amazing food, presented beautifully the food certainly made the night. Couldn’t recommend these guys high enough. You won’t be disappointed."
