Second-to-none nosh: Gorgeous Food


The lead-up to Christmas can be a stressful time, especially if you’re having to provide food – be it for large home gatherings, work dos, Christmas parties, or for any of those end-of-year happenings where people need to be fed.

 

 

 

Gorgeous Food provides a pick-up catering service that’s second-to-none. Their catering menu provides freshly baked, mouth-watering goodies to satisfy every palate, including those with special dietary requirements.

When it comes to sandwiches, these guys are legends. From standard, club or ladies’ sandwiches (ideal for that Christmas Croquet Club knees-up) through to rolls, wraps and paninis, they’ve got it covered.

Fancy savouring something savoury? Then their selection of mini sausage rolls and pies, mini frittatas, cocktail quiches, marinated chicken nibbles, corn fritters, sushi and vegetarian Vietnamese rolls pack a mighty tasty mouthful!

Sweet-toothed folk can feast on scrumptious muffins, friands, cinnamon cream oysters and in-house specialty Gorgeous Slices, while date and cinnamon or double cheese and chives scones are hard to resist. If bikkies are your preference, then afghans, passion moments and gypsy creams make for tantalising treats!

Their quality service doesn’t stop here, for Gorgeous Food also offer made-to-order spicy carrot cake, banana cake and chocolate mud cake, as well as family quiches and family pies.

With many menu items also made gluten-free, there’s nothing left to do but kick back and enjoy your Christmas do!
