in the blink of an eye, we’ve come to the end of summer. it’s a bittersweet farewell in the egg unlimited kitchen. whilst we’re sad to say good-bye to longer days and cocktail parties in the sun, we’re a little bit excited to be settling into cosy autumn days, with a beautiful selection of seasonal canapés available.
this autumn, we’re thinking warm healthy canapés, sharing hampers & platters for get together’s with our friends and family, all of which are on par with the latest in corporate catering trends across melbourne. three months into the year, and we’re starting to notice a few standouts options and ‘must-haves’ for your next office-do, cocktail party, or get together with friends and family.
luckily, egg unlimited caters for all, which makes us your go-to option for corporate catering in melbourne, as well as our variety of canapés & menu of finger food. here’s a list of catering trends to keep an eye on in 2019:

whether you’re health conscious or environmentally conscious: times are changing. often we notice when hosting or catering for an event, that the wastage of indisposable cutlery and utensils can be greatly underestimated, having a dire impact on the environment.
at egg unlimited, we’re constantly working to make our services the best they can be, whilst remaining conscious of the footprint we leave behind. that’s why we’ve worked tirelessly to produce 100% recyclable egg unlimited catering boxes, which safely hold all of your little sweet & savoury goodies. oh, and did we mention that they look fabulous too? simply take the lid off and serve!
platters, platters, platters!
there’s no easier way to make a statement at your next event or office meeting than with a beautiful and carefully curated platter. with a mixture of hand-made sweet & savoury finger food options, a hamper or a platter never goes astray.
even better, egg unlimited has hampers & packages for every hour of the day and occasion. breakfast hampers, lunchtime hampers, even special little dessert packages: let us take the stress out of curating an elegant platter.
healthy meals & variety
it’s no secret that we live in a highly health-conscious society. we want the freshest and the best tasting, not to mention the healthiest options, as well as a variety of options that cater to dietary requirements and needs.
healthy and delicious salads, as well as healthy desserts and savoury canapés are all the rage in 2019. which is why the team at egg unlimited have worked tirelessly to create an extensive, delicious and healthy menu with vegan-friendly options and healthy alternatives to catering classics.
our beautifully curated menu is not only transeasonal & on-trend, but takes the hassle out of event planning with an easy-to-operate (and choose) menu that offers something for everyone. whether you’re vegetarian, vegan, or after a healthy yet delicious alternative, our variety of canapés is sure to have something for everyone.

the evening involved bringing together some of melbourne’s most influential architects, interior designers, media personalities & press to celebrate the launch of meir’s latest range of high-end, incredibly beautiful tapware.
the new special finish ranges on display included ‘champagne’ and ‘tiger bronze’…it was hard to choose a favourite!
the cocktail party was held in the kensington collective warehouse – a building with true character.
located just a few kilometres from melbourne’s cbd, the unique warehouse space provided a multi-purpose area with plenty of rustic charm – perfect for the meir launch!
the funky red brick building impressed guests with striking high ceilings, wide wooden floorboards and plenty of natural light.
those attending mingled, snacked and sipped throughout the night, while live music played in the background.
egg took care of the menu, whilst our boys and girls staffed the floor…
the menu featured a tasty selection of hot & cold canapés – a wonderful little bite or two.
egg tailored the selection according to the nature of the event.
all in all, a wonderful evening, enjoyed by all.

introducing egg’s latest addition – the mini crumpet!
the need for a miniature version of the standard crumpet came to julie one evening a year or so back (it takes that long to make this sort of thing happen)… the realisation that such a thing didn’t exist ignited great excitement and initiated some extensive planning and research.
the process, far from simple, required julie to source an industrial designer to bring this mini (4cm in diameter) delight to life! together, along with egg’s head chef dave, the unique custom made mould was created, paired with a well thought out recipe.
whether you’re after the savoury or sweet version, egg’s little crumpet can be gently warmed & makes for a multi-purpose base for any canape.
perfect for your next cocktail party!

egg would like to introduce you to a special someone…
meet little julie!
not so little anymore, julie parks established egg unlimited more than 20 years ago. inspired by a boutique in the cobblestone streets of london’s belgravia, the name ‘egg’ and the big idea of creating a bespoke catering company around little foods and mini breads was born.
little bit about julie…
during the 90’s (1989 to 1996), julie worked throughout great britain and europe as a chef for a renowned catering company and various private clients. it was here that julie acquired the knowledge and passion for food and presentation she has today.
upon reflection, julie particularly enjoyed her time in greece. working on a privately owned island, julie absorbed the culture and spent her days picking and cooking with fresh, raw ingredients & seasonal produce, harvested from the island itself. julie recalls bee keeping, the exquisite taste of lavender honey and the fresh ricotta made from the curd of local goats. although long days and hard work, julie prides her career on the skills developed during those mediterranean summers.
upon returning to melbourne, julie launched into the research and development of her unique idea… egg. she committed herself to the painstaking art of creating the perfect little bite – perfecting her little food, with the aim of minimum fuss & mess when consuming.
julie says: “the challenge that I love, is to create something that is little, that is visually beautiful and, most importantly, that is delicious – full of flavour. it requires a lot of meticulous work and precision for little treats like ours.”
now melbourne’s leaders in hand-made miniature breads & canapes, you’ll find egg lighting up boardrooms, cocktail parties & morning teas… as well as filling bellies with our not so little lunch boxes, share salads & hampers.
little food, making a big impact!
