Brisbane supplier Wine & Dine’m Catering has launched a new canape delivery service, offering a simple, yet sophisticated catering solution for events.
Perfect for a last-minute board meeting, team gathering or office celebration, The Canape Shop allows planners to order online and have restaurant-quality canapés delivered in just 48 hours.
Here, we chat to the team behind the new venture to find out more:
What is The Canape Shop and what’s on offer?
The Canape Shop is Brisbane’s newest way to entertain and is headed up by experienced catering company, Wine & Dine’m. Based in Woolloongabba, we are supported by a strong team of dedicated chefs at the top of their game who work tirelessly to produce our delicious canapes.
We are now delivering delicious bite-sized canape packs for you to enjoy, wherever you happen to be, within 48 hours.
The process is simple: canapes are prepared using the freshest local seasonal produce, fully assembled and delivered in our stylish eco-friendly box. Simply take off the lid, follow our simple finishing instructions and enjoy.
We have vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free options available. Specific allergies can be catered for on request.
Where did the idea come from?
It is something that our director Craig Fox has wanted to do for many years and was a result of owning this business for 21 years and understanding that people have different catering needs for each occasion.
We are a premiere full-service caterer (which means we cater to the corporate, private and wedding markets) and over the years we have discovered that not all clients want or need waitstaff and equipment at every event.
Who is your target market?
We anticipate it will be good for corporate entertaining (when people are back in the office) as it is a no-fuss, low-cost option while still providing quality and beautiful product. It is also a great option for school events, reunions and fundraisers.
We’ve also had enquiries regarding small backyard/home style weddings, a movement that is very popular at the moment. It is also a great option for birthdays, high teas, christenings and even wakes.
What are some of the menu highlights?
Executive chef Lincoln Hoole designed the boxes to cater for a variety of events and tastes. The entertainment packs come in three sizes which allows us to cater for events with different amounts of attendees.
Currently we offer eight different boxes which we feel will suit the majority of events and clients at this time – but we have more ideas to come!
The chef’s top 5 picks are:
- Turkey waldorf, candy walnut, grape, poppy seed biscuit
- Pistachio chicken brioche, hard cheddar melt
- Passion fruit meringue tartlet
- Chicken roulade, polenta puff, bush tomato
- Sous vide olive beef, mushroom reduction, press grains
