October Half Price Special – Bao Bun

Half price for orders placed this Week
2nd October – 6th October

Bao Bun

What better way to celebrate spring than with a lightly Asian spiced chicken and salad Bao bun with black sesame seeds. Easy to eat, lovely and soft and full of flavour. Two or three of these make the perfect alternative to traditional sandwiches.

For this week only we are offering these fresh and healthy bowl foods for half price regardless of when you want to enjoy them. Fantastic value at only $2.60 each for this week only (minimum of 6 serves).

As always, look out for your FREE sample with your first catering order delivered this week. Enjoy!


Can you believe we’re having to start thinking about Christmas catering already? We are being inundated with requests for Christmas catering since we went live with our Christmas Catering menu. To download the menu click here. We’ve kept some of the most popular items from last year such as the Christmas buffet, the spit roast and the Barbeques and introduced a new selection of pastry items with a Christmas theme (the snow dome’s to die for)!

We’re delivering your Christmas catering to your door from the 13th of November right up to and including the 22nd of December.

When is too early too early?

Around June every year we get our first Christmas catering enquiries……honestly – June!

It’s always a bit of a wake-up call for me. I’m the first to admit that I’m a bit of a traditionalist and I’m not too keen to see Christmas advertising in September or hot-cross buns being advertised in January.

You’ll note that in this newsletter, I’ve introduced our Christmas menu for 2017. Rest assured, this is not because I think it’s about time to advertise the Christmas offerings, it’s more to do with the input from our clients and the flood of requests we have for Christmas parties starting from around mid-August.

In the retail world there’s always some sort of milestone that’s worth promoting whether it be Easter, Mothers day, Fathers day, Christmas, Haloween etc etc. Personally, I think a lot of the time the real message and reason for these milestones is lost in the commercial hype. In my mind, this is a bit of a shame.

I know I’ve got a responsibility to make sure that Elizabeth Andrews remains a successful and profitable business – not only for our loyal customers but also for the 50 staff who I work with, so if I’ve offended anyone by including our Christmas menu in this newsletter, please accept my apologies!

At least you can get in early for the best catering on offer this Christmas!

Cooking Tip

Homemade vinaigrettes have fewer ingredients and taste better than bottled ones. No need to whisk them: Just put all the ingredients in a sealed container and shake.
