A few weekends ago we were lucky enough to cater for a hens party in the heart of Sydney, Surry Hills at The Muse. Unfortunately, we were unlucky with the weather for this event with it pouring with rain over the middle of the day.
Chef Dave was not deterred as we had our 2.5m x 2.5m marquee on standby and set up in minutes upon arriving onsite. This kept our pans cosy and dry and ensured we had plenty of space to set up and cook. Although we always prefer an undercover area to cook, this is not always possible, so we have three marquees which we can bring to events to ensure we are covered from the weather. This maintains our products consistency as we are not reliant on having cover in the case of bad weather.
The Muse is an awesome event space in Surry Hills presented over a five-story heritage listed building. Our hens party was in the ‘thimble’ space which also includes an outdoor area. It’s a truly unique space with a huge focus on textures, design, art and unique entertaining spaces and a space which we are going to try and be a part of more.
For our 40 lovely ladies, we cooked an 80cm mixed paella (which serves up to 40 people) which was ready perfectly for lunch. Chicken, chorizo, salmon and prawns are the main ingredients which make up this paella. As well as these we have rice, chicken stock, saffron, soffrito, peas and salt. Simple, tasty food, perfect for a rainy day in Sydney. Our mixed paella is by far our most popular paella requested by our clients with some even going as far to say its our best paella! Remember we also do chicken & chorizo paella, seafood paella and even vegetarian paella. All our paellas are gluten free, dairy free, egg free and nut free so are perfect when catering for dietary requirements or if you are looking for catering ideas.
One of our most senior waitstaff Shane was on the floor for the event and even went above and beyond to assist with the beverages for the event. This meant that the guests didn’t have to lift a finger and were able to enjoy their event without worrying about food and service. Having a waitstaff for a paella event included really makes a difference to the overall event. Although it is difficult to put a dollar value on service, it really allows your guests to enjoy themselves with seamless service, great food and awesome company.
