Function food solutions

Looking for Function Food Solutions? Function season is a great time of year to bring people together, thank them, celebrate and appreciate one another. Naturally, food is a big part of this… But trying to put together food that will taste good + tick all the dietary boxes can be difficult. 

Here are some tips, tricks and ideas to help you tackle this function season. 

Considerations for the PERFECT platter:


  • Be dietary conscious – include something for everyone
  • Serve enough dipping sauces – Avoid serving a dry platter.
  • Be creative – Food is social – why not make it a conversation starter.
  • Offer Variety– Provide different tastes and textures across your platter.

Mini-Burger Buns

These fun sliders are a great conversation starter. Pair these with our minis range for a delicious combo.

Falafel & Peppadew Bites

Cook up our Mini Feta & Quinoa Falafels and place a peppadew on top with a skewer. Quick, Christmassy, and tasty.

TIP: Try themed platters to take people places with your flavour profiles. E.g. 

  • Mediterranean
  • Mexican Fiesta
  • Asian Fusion
  • Greek-inspired antipasto platter
  • Sweet and Salty
  • Plant-based
  • Seafood
  • Breakfast
  • Dessert

Board Options to try:

  • A Wooden serving paddle is a popular choice
  • Breadboard/chopping board – even side by side to make a bigger grazing table
  • Baking paper on a baking tray (which have handy sides)
  • Marble serving platter – for elegance
  • Cake stand
  • Baking paper across the surface of a table – you can fill up the whole table with food this way
  • Add different levels to a larger grazing table – using wooden serving boards with legs and 2-3 tier stands
  • A long plank spread across two slices of tree trunks adds height and interest to the table

Consider your Guests

  • Any food intolerances
  • What is the mix of adults to children
  • Robust crackers to use as vessels for scooping up thick dips 
  • Supply handy utensils – so less awkward to pick up some of the items 
  • Don’t forget the napkins/serviettes

TIP: Fill up gaps on the Platter – use some of these fillers which can really elevate a simple platter look: Nuts, pretzels, fresh herb sprigs, fresh rocket, bunches of grapes and fresh edible flowers.
