Grazing. It’s not a term only used in reference to farm animals and open pastures, aka herds of cows. It’s not even limited to the lettuce we use to fill our salad bowls. The term “grazing” has become more popular in the world of food to describe the practice of eating little bites from a variety of dishes. Imagine having a wide variety of options from which to choose the one that best suits your needs. This food craze has been growing in popularity Down Under, strangely enough where the founder and creator of Lush Platters, Wynona, is from.

But what is a grazing soiree?

A grazing soiree is a dinner party or reception where guests nibble on small portions of many different foods throughout the night. Cheeses, cured meats, crackers, bread, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and other finger foods are typical components of grazing tables or boards. The point of a grazing party is to snack on a wide selection of tasty and aesthetically pleasing foods all night long.

A grazing soiree is a type of evening celebration that combines the formality of a typical soiree with the relaxed elegance of grazing tables, platters, or boards. Any kind of social gathering, from weddings to company parties to birthday celebrations, may be transformed into a grazing soiree.

The goal is to create a spread that is both visually appealing and appetizing so that guests may linger over their food and drink and enjoy each other’s company as the evening progresses. That was a major tick-in-the-box this night. Every single attendee was beaming and enjoying themselves.

What is the origin of 'platters'?

Platters of food, that offer a wide selection to please everyone, have become standard fare at parties and other social gatherings. Where, though, did the idea of serving meals on a platter first appear? Was it Lush Platters in the Singaporean market?

Platters have been used to serve meals since prehistoric times. Serving dishes at banquets and festivals was traditionally presented on platters in ancient Greece. Silver, gold, and bronze were common materials for these elaborate serving plates. Meats, fruits, and vegetables were just some of the items that adorned the platters. Guests were expected to help themselves, therefore they were set out on a table.

In fact, this is where ChillaxBBQ came up with our servers, platters, and single-spoon concept. The last thing you want is a plate, knife, and fork. Make grazing easy. Remove hassle. One hand to graze, and one to drink. For this ChillaxBBQ is in perfect unison with Lush Platters.

Large serving platters of food were common at medieval banquets. Bread was used to make these plates, which were known as trenchers. Food was served on top of the bread, which served as the dish. The bread platter was either thrown away or given to the poor when the dinner was over.

More and more people in Europe and the United States began serving food on platters in the 18th and 19th centuries. They were typically used as a means of presenting snacks such as fruits, cheeses, and crackers. Platters are usually available in a wide range of sizes and can be stacked full to the brim with overflowing foodie goodness.

Platters of food are now a standard sight at social gatherings such as weddings and parties, and clearly Lush Platters’ events.

The foods on the platters are usually placed so that their colours and textures complement one another, making for an appetizing presentation. Lush Platters are MASTERS at this as you will see from the plethora of photos in this blog review.

The objective of a food platter has changed little over time: to provide a selection of dishes that will appeal to as many people as possible. Platters of food, whether they consist of a few simple items like cheese or a more sophisticated arrangement of fruits and meats, are always a welcome addition to any celebration. Lush Platters excel at this food eye-candy, that then becomes a pleasurable assault on your mouth, resulting eventually in the inevitable ‘food coma’.

For once I don’t mind heading to the exit when there is free-flow wine and food right there. What’s that song; “You’ll always find them in the exit at parties…”

Nothing like a bit of healthy competition. ChillaxBBQ has been doing monster cheese fondues for years with the Cheese Shop, and Chris still has our ‘secret blend’; just add white wine, thyme, corn flour, sea salt, cracked Kampot black pepper, and oven-baked bread with Olive Oil. Bring it on Lush Platters
