Back a Winner with EARL Catering for Spring Racing

With warm weather approaching, the Spring Racing season is also nearly upon us, bringing the Melbourne Cup and all its exciting associated events.  We have had several enquiries about how we might be able to cater for events and get-togethers happening over this period, so thought we’d share some ideas with you.

Race Day Picnics
Offering a pickup point at our 567 Collins St store (right next to Southern Cross Station), we can cater for your day at the races with our signature sandwiches, salads & sweets.  Plattered and ready to share, EARL catering is a great, portable option to feed your crew.  EARL recommends a decent lunch before indulging for the day!

Help at Home
Having a BBQ or get-together with friends?  Been asked to ‘bring a plate’?  No need to DIY – let us help!  From fresh, made-that-day salad platters to savoury fritters, frittatas & tartlets, there are options aplenty.  Promise we won’t tell if you put EARL catering on your own platters and pass it off as your own hard work 😉


Office Celebrations
If your office is putting on a race themed day (including a sweep, of course) you’ll need some refreshments.  Just make sure you do your research so our catering isn’t the only thing you’re winning at.  We’re pretty darn good at corporate catering and deliver across Melbourne’s CBD on a daily basis.  And, if you’re working Cup Day, we’re on deck too – tell your boss you ought to be fed, if you’re giving up your public holiday, and that EARL’s got you covered.

Event Catering
We don’t talk about it all that often but we also do bespoke catering for big events.  We can design a canapé or buffet menu, provide wait staff and even bar service for your next event.  If you’ve got something coming up, let us know, we would be happy to provide a quote.


So, at this super busy time of year, whatever the social occasion, know that catering isn’t something you need to worry about, just leave it to EARL!
