June Half Price Special – Soup

Half price for orders placed this Week 5th June – 9th June 2017

You only have to look at the Mt Buller snow cams to realise that Winter has arrived with a vengeance! So we thought it was time to bring the warmth and richness of some of our home made soups to your boardroom.

For this week only we are offering these hearty soups for half price regardless of when you want to enjoy them. Fantastic value at only $4.40 each for this week only (including a freshly baked bread roll)! Flavour on offer are Roasted cauliflower soup with truffle oil and candied walnuts (Veg, GF & Dairy Free) and Lamb shanks and barley (GF & Dairy Free).

As always, look out for your FREE soup sample with your first catering order delivered this week (decant the soup into a microwave proof container and heat for up to a minute). Enjoy!

Supplier profile for June – Pest probe

Around 6 months ago, the pest control company we were using was taken over by a large multi- national. The result of this was that we no longer received the personal attention we had grown accustomed to and come to rely on. Around the same time, the technician which had always services our premises at 309 King St took the plunge and set up his own company.

Pest Probe was born (www.pestprobe.com.au)

The great thing about Pest Probe is that we receive fantastic personalised service yet we’re able to tap into all the procedures, protocols and best practices that come with a large multinational. John is fully compliant, has all the necessary insurances and best of all provides a consistent and reliable service.

We were delighted to be John Swaysland’s first commercial client and it’s great to see he’s picked up so many since and his business is booming. It’s all part of our commitment to supporting local businesses while at the same time remaining compliant and diligent.

I’m not sure why I’m so passionate about the catering industry, but I’ve pretty much done nothing else since I left school in 1984.

However, one of the things that has always concerned me about catering is the carbon footprint we leave. If you’re not careful it can be akin to wearing muddy gumboots on an expensive Turkish rug!

Day by day, we look for better and more responsible ways in which we can reduce our footprint. Constantly on the radar are things like packaging, food-miles, power consumption, oil consumption etc.

I recently took the decision to sign up our fleet of vehicles with “Green Fleet” who’s mission is to protect our climate by restoring our forests. We proudly participate in the carbon offset programme and over time will look towards other ways in which we can make a difference.

My dream is to move to a CBD location where I can install a commercial decomposter that will take foodwaste and specialized packaging products and literally turn it into dirt. I’ve done the research, set the money aside and all I need now is a little space on which to mount my decomposter.

Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted!

Cooking Tip

When seasoning a salad, use coarse sea salt mixed with a little olive oil. It will stay crunchy when combined with the vinaigrette.

Good morning Louise,
