What is the Chef's Teasing Platter?
If you are looking at the Chef’s Teasing Platter as part of “Show & Dinner” style ticket, here are some things to note:
The Teasing Platter is designed individually, ensuring dietary requirements and allergy notes are met with the greatest of care
The Teasing Platter consists of 4-5 items from our menu picked by the Chef on the day of your event. Any platters that are ordered on the day, or have dietary changes made on the day may see a difference to other guests at the event.
The 4-5 items picked are a smaller portion size to their menu counterparts. It is designed this way in order for you to have a little taste (or tease) of the items. For a person with a smaller appetite, the platter may suffice as a “meal”, and for those looking to try a few more things, this gives you the opportunity to order more of your favourite teases, or try some other items from the menu.
All of our items are prepared fresh daily. This means that while we endevour to provide all guests with a similar teasing platter, items may run out due to popular demand or dietary needs, meaning some platters may have substitute items.
For more information, you can always contact us on the day of your event to find out which items are likely to be included. The best contact at all times is email@example.com or to call us after 2pm on 03 8582 6692.
