The rules for events may have changed, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautifully catered Melbourne Cup event. If you are thinking of hosting a Spring racing event at your office, home, or remotely, you can still serve delicious and stunning food that will leave a lasting impression.

We know things are a little different this year, so we’ve simplified the online ordering process and focused on an extra special menu for individuals and groups. After all, it would not be a winning Melbourne Cup celebration without a winning menu.


Our Melbourne Cup packages include a range of sweet and savoury platters and hampers for groups and individuals.    

For a no-frills Melbourne Cup lunch that still packs a punch, our hampers for 10 or more people include:

• Selection of breads and gourmet condiments,
• Spinach, leek, mushroom herb quiche,
• Roasted chicken, citrus salsa, verjuice watercress,
• Roast pumpkin, red onion, feta, verjuice salad,
• Chat potato salad, sundried tomato, celery, lemon mayo, and a
• Lemon meringue tartlet.

You can upgrade your hamper experience with a bottle of Lanson Champagne.

Individual serves

We are offering single-serve options for virtual or socially distanced events. Our individual Race Day Hamper for $25pp includes:

• Mini artisan roll with gourmet fillings,
• Quinoa and cranberry salad pot,
• Mini quiche,
• Sushi roll, and a
• Race day sweet treat.  

You may wish to add an individual Poke Bowl, Graze or Say Cheese Hamper to your order.
