Marc Edward Agency recently asked Avocado Group to assist with IKEA’s Better Cotton launch.
IKEA is a founding member of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI).
The event was held at Pix on Location in Alexandria.
The menu was created to represent countries where IKEA sources environmentally sustainable cotton.
Tables were decorated with wild cotton bush.
Following on from our recent new Corporate Boardroom Catering Menu post last week, we have another menu item to show.
Three types of roasted beetroot – Baby Beetroot, Golden Beetroot and Target Beetroot, served with goats curd, radish and Beetroot crisps.
Topped with dried olive soil and edible flowers
Further to our new Corporate Boardroom menu post last week, we are today highlighting the Kingfish Sashimi.
The cured, lime caught, Kingfish is served with Black Garlic, sesame seeds, and watercress.
Our full Corporate Boardroom Catering menu can be found here.
Our fruit and vegetable suppliers at Sydney Markets keep us up to date with what is in season. We also like to check Sydney Markets website for what’s in season.
Most stone fruits are in season, Summer through Autumn.
Plums are just coming to the end of their season. So we thought we would extend the season by making Plum Paste for use on our Corporate Catering cheese platters.
We also like to use the Plum Paste for individual cheese platters for our Boardroom Catering clients in Sydney.
Our Plum Paste is lightly spiced with cinnamon and takes about 90 minutes for the brew to set.
Here we show the paste creation. Still a bit of time to go yet.
It seems everyone is talking about the Smashed Avocado Generation (SAG).
Apparently, our Deputy Prime Minister’s favourite RM William’s is offering new gold boots to fit perfectly with the SAG.
According to the SMH, the sharemarket is also offering ETF’s for the Smashed Avocado Gen’ers.
And mortgage broker SoFi is offering a month’s worth of Smashed Avocados on Toast if clients purchase a home with a SoFi mortgage.
In case you are wondering how many Smashed Avocado meals it takes to purchase a house in Australia’s capital cities. The corporate world has the answer to that. It is the Smashed Avocado Index.
Here at Avocado Group, we think of smashed avocado as, well, smashed avocados.
We have noticed a few of our corporate catering clients are increasingly requesting our smashed avocado, poached egg with roasted Roma tomatoes for conference morning tea.
We are more than happy to oblige.
Here at Avocado Group, we love a good avocado story.
Last Wednesday, three men were arrested in Ventura County, California, in that the Sherrif’s Office described as the largest Avocado heist ever.
Carlos Chavez, 28 and Joseph Valenzuela, 38, of Santa Paula, and Rahim Leblanc, 30, of Oxnard; were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of grand theft avocados.
It is estimated US$300,000 worth of avocados from Mission Produce were “sold out the back of the warehouse”.
Sgt. John Franchi of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said “They are in demand. Everybody loves avocados,”
The company’s President Steve Barnard said “A typical box of avocados grown in Mexico, New Zealand and Chile, sells for $50. In this case, the men were selling a box for $20 to $30.
More details of the Avocado Heist can be found on the LA time website. Holy Guacamole!

Although the weather has turned slightly chilly, the bridge and harbour foreshore has come to life again with the return of Vivid Sydney.
One of the most spectacular ways to experience VIVID is a twilight climb with Bridgeclimb. Belinda Franks Catering, part of the Avocado Group is offering corporate clients a unique experience, with canapes served at the summit of the bridge as the sun sets.
One of our favorite Sydney restaurants is moving to Melbourne.
Sepia Restaurant in Sussex Street has been at the top of the Sydney food scene for the past eight years.
Good Food reports today that Chef Martin Benn and Front of House manager Vicki Wild will be teaming up with Chris Lucas in Melbourne early next year.
Sepia has been awarded the coveted Restaurant of the Year award, four times.
There have been many great items on the Sepia menu over the years, none better than Forest Floor (pictured).
This dish was first introduced the year after the restaurant opened and has been a staple on the menu ever since. Some readers will remember the dish from when Benn appeared on Masterchef in season eight.
Mitch Lienhard has been named the 2016 S.Pellegrino Young Chef of the Year at a gala event in Milan.
The San Francisco-based chef’s signature dish, “roasted duck with spiced orange and yam”, beat out 20 finalists from across the globe as the best Young Chef in the world.
“It’s really exciting,” Lienhard said, commenting on his big win. “I feel like I’ve prepared for this moment, but I don’t feel like I’ve prepared for this moment. I’m ecstatic.”
His winning dish was a reminder of his home state of Michigan, with aromas of burning leaves and maple.
