streetSLEEP –The Property Industry Foundation kicks a goal!

Huge congratulations must be given to the Property Industry Foundation for organising such a successful inaugural streetSLEEP on Thursday the 23rd of November.

The sleepout raised more than $20,000 in Victoria, $160,000 nationally and more importantly raised the profile of the plight facing thousands of young Australians every night – no-where to sleep other than on the street.

Elizabeth Andrews was delighted to feed the sleepers and contribute to the fund raising by fielding a team of four sleepers. Our contribution may have been only $1,350 but then again, every little bit counts

Getting into the Christmas spirit…..

For me it starts with the business of course. Planning for Christmas starts around August with menu testing – specifically the bakery items.

Once we’ve decided on the menu, we then have to make the samples, conduct the tastings and then do the photography for both the hard copy brochure and the web. Graphic design, printing and website updates all follow and then it’s a question of sitting back and waiting until around October when the requests for quotes start coming in. Quotes are prepared, refined, tweaked, tailored and agreed.

And then there are council permits, inclement weather contingencies, dietaries, equipment audits, equipment bump ins and pack downs. As the events get closer there are more dietaries, cultural considerations (Halal, Kosher etc), final numbers, venue changes, security access passes, staffing, rosters – the list goes on.

Finally, the kitchen preps the food and we deliver it like a well-oiled machine……..

Getting into the Christmas spirit is easier said than done but I am always impressed and grateful for the fact that we have such a great team at Elizabeth Andrews that can pull together such fantastic catering solutions, year-in year-out.

We trust you’ll enjoy your catering this festive season – from all of us here at Elizabeth Andrews.

Cooking Tip

Don’t throw the stem of the broccoli away. Peel and slice it into thin round “chips” for the children’s lunch boxes. Voila – broccoli chips. They love them!
