Who is Egg Unlimited?
Established more than 20 years ago, Egg Unlimited is a Melbourne Catering company supplying Melbourne’s caterers, boardrooms, homes and studios with beautifully hand crafted miniature breads, canapés and hampers. Fresh ingredients, seasonal produce and a passion for creating beautiful small food has been the hallmark of Egg Unlimited.
How does it work?
Egg Unlimited creates beautifully boxed little food – delivered to your door. Just choose your items from our extensive range of delicious savoury and sweet treats, complete your order and checkout – it’s as simple as that to have your next party catered.
Is there a minimum spend?
Yes, we require a minimum spend of $150 plus delivery to complete your order.
How much notice do you need?
All filled items, salads, hampers & packages will require 48 hours’ notice and have a 12pm cut off time. For all Monday & Tuesday orders the cut off is Friday at 12pm as our office is unattended over the weekend. All bread orders will require 24 hours’ notice and have a 12pm cut off time. For Sunday & Monday bread orders, the cut off is Friday at 12pm as our office is unattended over the weekend.
How is it served? How long will it keep?
Our food is freshly made on the day of your order and we suggest that it is refrigerated and served on that day. Our boxes are designed to go straight into your fridge and you can even just lift the lid and serve.
Can I change or swap items that make up the hampers?
Our hampers have been created to suit most tastes and occasions and are ordinarily a set product. Should you require something different in large quantities or bespoke catering please contact our Egg team.
Do I have enough food?
Every occasion is a little different and depends on your guests – is this a meal or a pre dinner event and how long will your event go for – this will all add to your decision. As a helpful guide, if you’re catering for nibbles before a meal, a good estimate is to allow around 4 or 5 canapés per person. For a drinks only party, it would be more like 8-10 canapés per head. To serve canapés instead of a meal, go for 12-15 pieces per person. If you need a little more help please call our little team.
Do I need staff?
Our goal is to make your party food hassle free and simple to serve. But should you need some help, we can recommend friendly and professional staff so you can relax with no cleaning up at the end! Need help staffing your event?
Do I need platters?
Our boxes are designed as “platters with a lid” but if you’d like to present our little food on big platters we can suggest reputable party hire companies who also provide glassware and warming equipment.
Do I need tableware?
For our hampers and any items that are not meant to be eaten by hand, we will provide environmentally friendly disposable plates, cutlery and napkins.
Will I need to heat some items?
Yes, some items are best served warm and will arrive in foil containers ready to heat in your oven.
Do you supply drinks?
Yes, we have a range of organic juices and soft drinks on hand to add to your order. We can also supply champagne, beer and wine and help with advice for your alcohol requirements as well.
Do you provide for dietary requirements?
Yes, we have a range of gluten friendly, vegetarian and vegan items as well as dairy and refined sugar free. Should you have any other more specific allergy requirements contact our Egg Team on 9533 0077 to see if we can accommodate your guest.
