2016 from the Kitchen

I know you haven’t heard from me in a very long time now so I better fill you in with a quick recap on the end of 2016 before we jump into 2017.

September was extremely busy for us filled with beautiful weddings and lots of corporate catering. It began with our Father’s Day luncheon which filled the house with smiles, laughter and multiple chargrilled delicacies. The kitchen team had a blast putting together the buffet of black pepper and lime chicken, barbequed prawns with avocado, along with mouth watering chargrilled vegetables. The light and tranquil mood radiated throughout the function centre, both front and back of house. My main offsider Maddie shined that day, doing an outstanding job putting all the finishing touches on the dishes, whilst our senior waitress, Hannah ensured the buffet was full to the brim the entire luncheon. At the end of the day all the staff were happy with the leftover strawberry and chocolate pizzas to gorge themselves on.

Later in the month, Lazy River also hosted a busy weekend catering for the Mothers of St Joseph’s College students. They enjoyed an outdoor banquet at the Dundullimal Homestead feasting on rump roasts from Hereford Red and cheese platters filled with Second Mouse Cheese Co’s finest produce.

November saw WOMDOMNOM participants camp on the river bank at Lazy River as they kayaked from Wellington to Narromine. The weary travellers, famished from their long day all came back for seconds and thirds from the barbecue buffet we provided. The day itself became a great day for all of us being intriguing and exciting, as we met and conversed with many of the kayakers. 

In the last month for 2016 we were extremely busy as per usual for that time of year, with Christmas parties and events, which are always enjoyable to cater. Christmas food is fun food and the festive spirit bounced around the kitchen while we played with fresh berries, redcurrants, and locally grown and smoked Christmas hams. It got all our staff excited for our own Christmas party, which we love to hold every year for all the staff.

That wraps up 2016 and now we’re reenergised and looking forward to another amazing year here in the Lazy River kitchen.

Cheers, Chef Stephanie
