Meet Karina

I’m Karina, the owner of La Paparedda Catering.

Delicious and humble food is my heart, soul and heritage. Being passionate about beautiful flavours led me to start making my own antipasto and grazing boards for family and friends. I soon realised I wanted the opportunity to share my love of food with even more people, so I started La Paparedda.


Paparedda means ‘little duck’ in Sicilian. My Nonna called me this all my life, so naming my business La Paparedda means that her love, my heritage and the wonderful culture of Italy are always in my work. This personal touch sets me apart from other Sydney catering companies: from grazing tables to corporate catering, everything comes from the heart.


My team and I specialise in customised grazing tables, grazing boxes and gourmet antipasto platters. We select the finest antipasti, including;

  • cured meats such as San Daniele prosciutto crudo and felino salami

  • cheeses such as buffalo mozzarella, truffle pecorino 

  • freshly baked local crusty bread

  • seasonal fruits

  • homemade chocolate

  • and much more! 


Our ingredients are sourced from local markets around Sydney, with special items imported straight from Italy.

I was lucky enough to have Karina cater for an intimate ladies lunch in advance of the arrival of our second bub early this year. Dealing with her was an absolute dream – she responded to all questions promptly and was only too happy to work with me to ensure that the event was stress-free and exactly what I’d imagined. All of the guests were amazed at the spread Karina provided and it really set the tone for a lovely, relaxed, all-day grazing affair. I can’t thank La Paparedda enough for making the lunch exactly what I wanted which left me free to do nothing but sit, eat and enjoy it!

Karinas attention detail is impeccable. Her approach to each Grazing Table is like no other. I have used her services a few times and cannot be thankful enough for the beautiful products and themed display for each event. Always leaving my guests talking about ‘THAT GRAZING TABLE’. Such a beautiful person with so much professionalism. Looking forward to my next grazing table x

Thank you to you and your gorgeous mum for putting on such a beautiful spread for Nikita’s party. Everything was divine, the food, the presentation, you guys! I couldn’t have asked for any better. I can’t wait to have you at my next party.
