• Domaine Chandon S boulangerie workshop Pyrmont Bay Park

    "Chandon S Chic Easy"             Yes that is a original Melbourne tram in Sydney!   Over the week end we at The Roo Brothers Catering were lucky enough to be invited in the launch of the new sparking wine by chandon call "S". Working with Marc Edwards Agency Emma Mumford to assist with a traditional French boulangerie themed event as part of the launch, in front of Star City in Pyrmont Bay Park. The brief from Emma was that The Roo Brothers were to provide artisan pre proofed bread dough, house made traditional pate, candied orange zest and some cornichons and served in eco friendly packaging.     Why the pre proofed dough? Well, the guests were invited to add the same ingredients that the wine maker used to create the " s" with orange bitters, various spices such as cardamom and cinnamon into the dough at the boulangerie workshop. From there The Roo Brothers baked their individual bread creation and when it was baked it was served our ready to be eaten hot with the pate and condiments and, of course, matched with chandon "S" built on ice, served as a cocktail, while lounging around on rugs in the sun, with smell of freshly baked bread wafting over the park. Not a bad way to spend a weekend This event ticked all the boxes:- See, Taste, Touch, Smell. Well Done Guys and Thank You for letting us be involved. Inside the tram, very cool

    Bastille Day Catering Sydney BASTILLE Day is one of the most important dates in the French calendar and is celebrated with parades, parties and plenty of food. So we at The Roo Brothers Catering are celebrating Friday 14th July 2017 with some great traditional catering in Sydney What is Bastille Day and why does France celebrate it? Bastille Day is the French national holiday, which marks the storming of the Bastille in the 1700s, and is known as La Fête Nationale Française in France.The Bastille was a medieval fortress and prison, which held many political dissidents, and had become a symbol of oppression and injustice in Paris. On July 14, 1789, an angry mob stormed the Bastille and released the prisoners – of which there were just seven at the time – before stealing the weapons stored inside. The invasion was significant at the time because it proved to revolutionaries that the King had little control over his armed forces and undermined his power. It was the beginning of what later became known as the French Revolution and the monarchy was eventually overthrown. King Louis and his wife Queen Marie Antoinette were arrested and eventually executed – along with other supporters of the royal family.It’s been held every year since to remember those who fought for freedom and justice in society French inspired canapes or Hors d'Oevres Provençal Vegetable Tart  Pork Rillettes Cheddar Gougères Onion Tart Mini Tartes Flambées Salmon Trout Tartare with Pressed Caviar and Tomatoes Fromage Fort  Chicken Liver Pâté Zucchini-Tomato Verrines Mini Smoked-Salmon Croque-Monsieur   French Desserts Raspberry Macarons Petits Pots à l'Absinthe Country Apple Galette Cream Puffs with Chocolate Sauce Pear Tarte Tatin with Red-Wine Caramel Chocolate Tartlets with Candied Grapefruit Peel Get in touch today to discuss your Bastille Day catering in Sydney with us.

  • how to shuck an oyster sydney catering

    how to shuck an oyster With many catering events where The Roo Brothers Catering has set up food stations, either for a wedding or corporate event we often get asked on "how to shuck an oyster" without injury, but retaining all the juices. Why do you need to shuck an oyster, on site, anyway? But before we shuck our oyster we need to buy from a reputable supplier and store correctly. Buying oysters in Sydney With so many varieties of oysters to choose from, such as the Pacific Oyster, the Sydney Rock Oyster, Angasi (flat) Oyster ( my favourite ), Milky Oyster, and the Blacklip Oyster. The last two are not as common as the pacific or the sydney rock. It is important that you buy as fresh as possible, we need these little mollusks alive! Always ask your fishmonger, what region are the oysters from and when were they havested. Oysters that look wet and have a fresh sea smell are the freshest. The oyster that is dry, sunken into the shell and smells fishy is too old. Oysters should be tightly shut before you buy them or open them - if they are already open, they may have perished and are not safe to eat. Storage of your oysters From their harvest date, unopened Sydney Rock Oysters should be kept close to 20°C for up to 14 days and unopened Pacific Oysters at 5°C for up to 7 days. So that they can breathe and keep cool, wrap or cover oysters in a damp cloth. Storing in plastic, in water or on ice will kill them! Cover and refrigerate at 2 - 5°C within 30 minutes after opening your oysters if not eating them straight away. Source: Oyster Australia Shucking The best way to eat an oyster is freshly shucked, unwashed in its natural brine and, if you are a purist like me, with no dressing. This is the main reason why we shuck all our oysters, just before and during guest arrival. Their alive! So how do you shuck an oyster. First of all you need A tea towel A cutting board - preferable a large one A good high quality, sharp oyster knife A bit of muscle And a touch of patience 1) Wrap a teatowel over one hand and use it to hold the oyster firmly. 2) Using the oyster shucking knife in the other hand, place the tip of the shucking knife at the base of the hinge, twist the knife using pressure from side to side, then without the pressure, lever the knife upwards, or twist it to prise the hinge open. Be gentle, but firm so not to damage the oyster or lose any of those lovely juice. 3) Slide the knife under the top shell to release the oyster and flip it over, leave in the shell to serve on a bed of ice, with lemon limes, tabasco, and a pepper grinder. Flick out any bits of shell with your knife.Remembering that once the abductor has been cut the oyster will die. So eat straight away and you will taste the difference. I do love a good oyster with a lovely chilled glass of aged riesling Another method to shuck a lot of oysters in a matter of minutes, though I haven't tried it myself. What you do is soften the abductor muscle—the bit that connects those tasty little sea creatures to their shells—by sticking the oysters in boiling water, then icing them down right quick so they don't cook.

  • Hot Cross Buns Easter 2017 catering sydney

    Hot Cross Buns Sydney Catering Easter is nearly upon us, for 2017, Easter Sunday is on Sunday 16th April. When it comes to Easter, you can't beat indulging in a lovely, sticky hot cross bun. For the perfect Easter Hot Cross Bun it requires the right combination of fruit and spices. Hot Cross Bun recipe tips Swap the raisins and dried cranberries for chopped dried apricots or sour cherries. If you want to keep the buns lovely and moist for longer, soak the dried fruit in fruit juice for a couple of hours beforehand. Don't skimp on kneading or rising time, as this is what makes buns light and airy, and only good quality baker flour. Any old hot cross buns can be turned into a bread and butter pudding by soaking in butter History of the Hot Cross Bun Good Friday is traditional to eat hot cross buns, or rather it was, as I reckon the supermarkets and bakeries bring them out just after Christmas; and why not? They are delicious after all. The reason that Good Friday is the day these buns are traditionally baked goes back to Tudor times, when the sale of spiced buns was illegal, except on Good Friday, at Christmas and at funerals. The cross, people assume, is to denote the cross upon which Jesus was crucified. This is in fact nonsense; spiced buns with crosses were being produced throughout much of pagan Europe. Spiced buns have always been symbolic in worship and ones adorned with crosses were made for the goddess Eostre (where Easter get its name) We don’t actually eat them hot that often. They were simply called cross buns, until a nursery rhyme was written sometime in the eighteenth century, brought the "hot" to life. Other Easter treats Chocolate Millefoglie with Blackberries, Chocolate Cheesecake Pots with Dipped Strawberries Salted Caramel and Chocolate Brownie Easter Egg Mousse Cups with Raspberries. How to paint eggs With a needle, or drawing pin, gently pierce the top and bottom of your egg. Pierce the bottom end a few times to make it easier. If you’re using a needle, poke it around inside and you’ll pierce the yolk, which will make the blowing part a bit easier. Get yourself a wide bowl, and with the egg in both hands, make a tight seal with your mouth around the top of the egg and blow. It can be pretty difficult, but keep at it – it’s worth it in the end. Run under cold water once empty, dry carefully, and then decorate with paints, crayons, or marker pens. Cut up the cups from egg boxes to make perfect little stands for while you’re decorating. And dont waste the bowlful of raw beaten eggs, use them up, to make scrambled eggs, quiches, eggy bread and, of course, beautiful omelettes.

They were simply called cross buns, until a nursery rhyme was written sometime in the eighteenth century, brought the "hot" to life. Other Easter treats Chocolate Millefoglie with Blackberries, Chocolate Cheesecake Pots with Dipped Strawberries Salted Caramel and Chocolate Brownie Easter Egg Mousse Cups with Raspberries. How to paint eggs With a needle, or drawing pin, gently pierce the top and bottom of your egg. Pierce the bottom end a few times to make it easier. If you’re using a needle, poke it around inside and you’ll pierce the yolk, which will make the blowing part a bit easier. Get yourself a wide bowl, and with the egg in both hands, make a tight seal with your mouth around the top of the egg and blow. It can be pretty difficult, but keep at it – it’s worth it in the end. Run under cold water once empty, dry carefully, and then decorate with paints, crayons, or marker pens. Cut up the cups from egg boxes to make perfect little stands for while you’re decorating. And dont waste the bowlful of raw beaten eggs, use them up, to make scrambled eggs, quiches, eggy bread and, of course, beautiful omelettes.
