The clock is ticking, and it feels like you’re on the latest episode of My Kitchen Rules. A house full of guests doesn’t have to mean pulling your hair out. Simply swing by Muswellbrook Marketplace for all the essentials and a few cheats that are guaranteed to impress.
Whether you’re hosting a dinner party, birthday or special event, catering for a crowd can be intimidating. There is always a surprise allergy, an experimental vegan or simply, a picky eater. You want to deliver a scrumptious spread but can’t stand the idea of spending hours in the kitchen. Why not simply forage some goodies from Muswellbrook Marketplace and whip up a tasty platter?
No party is complete without a spread of finger foods to keep your guests satisfied. Rather than googling complicated recipes, or scrolling through Pinterest for inspo, pick up a platter from one of our specialty stores. Woolworths may be known as a grocery super store but the deli section hand produce a fantastic range of platters. You can’t go wrong with a classic antipasto spread, loaded with gourmet cheese, olives, crackers and meat.
Are you a fiend for a sandwich fix from Subway? Well your guests probably are too! Hit up the Subway team at Muswellbrook Marketplace for a spread your friends will devour. Their classic sub platters defy gravity, stacked high with fresh ingredients. For a lighter alternative opt for wraps or indulge your sweet tooth with a mountain of cookies. It’ll be the party your guests rave about, and you barely had to lift a finger.
How could you possibly round off a table piled with cheese, wraps, subs and cookies? Grab a few packs of sushi from Toto and design your own platter. Choose your favourites like katsu chicken, salmon and avocado or mixed vegetables. The hardest part will be not scoffing them all before they hit the plate.
The finger foods are sorted but your guests are after something substantial to hit the spot. You can’t fail if you’re cooking with authentic, high quality ingredients. Support your local butcher and grab everything from steaks to snags at The Brook Butchers. The friendly team are happy to share their insider knowledge on cooking that perfect roast. For a fail-safe side, pick up some fluffy rolls or a crusty baguette from the bakery. The bakers rise at the crack of dawn, crafting wholesome loaves so delicious you’ll be picking up crumbs.
Make entertaining a pleasure by swinging by Muswellbrook Marketplace first. You can grab a pre-made platter or fresh, wholesome ingredients your guests will love. Save yourself the stress next time you’re playing host and come say hey to our friendly retailers.
