What do the best sharing platters have on them?
Creating a world-class food platter can be a complex task. Believe it or not, it is not as simple as chucking your pantry scraps onto a plate. Producing a platter that will have sensory appeal needs much thought and consideration.

Yup – one simple task may require weeks of shopping and planning. Better to start organising it sooner rather than later.
First of all, you might like to think about Sharing platters come in a range of types and varieties. There are hot food platters, cold food platters, dessert platters, and more. However, most sharing platters will not ever mix items from those categories.
Below are some examples of what a quality grazing platter may contain:
- Hot food platter: crumbed chicken, fish fingers, party pies, mini sausage rolls, mini quiches, frankfurts, warm bread, sauces and dips.
- Cold food platter: cheese wheels, nuts, dried fruits, dips, crackers, vegetable sticks, sourdough.
- Dessert platter: popcorn, brownies, cookies, chocolate bars or squares, tarts, cups of yoghurt.
