Get your taste buds ready for a crispy and flavorful treat because National Fish and Chips Day is on a Friday this year. You can treat the team to a midday feast at your nearest fish and chip shop or plan a nod to the occasion by adding it to your next catering order.
Creative Catering in Perth offers mini fish and chip cones as part of their finger food selection. Or try Aussie Tucker which has individual serves of fish and wedges served in newspaper-style wrapping.

And if you're looking for a non-alcoholic option, consider sparkling apple juice or a fizzy mocktail. It's the perfect way to add a touch of elegance to your workday!
What goes perfectly with a glass of bubbly? How about a classic European dessert - the macaroon? Treat yourself to these delightful, bite-sized sweets made with a combination of rich chocolate and sweet coconut. (Not to be confused with the French macaron.)

Calling all cheese lovers! It's time to celebrate the wonderful world of cheese on National Cheese Day. Indulge in a cheese platter featuring an array of flavours, textures, and origins. Whether you like the stinky stuff or prefer something a little milder, there's a cheese to suit every palate.
Pimp out your platter by adding a selection of gourmet crackers, fresh fruits, and nuts. And for the ultimate cheese experience, finish it off with a few spreads. We like jam or honey to keep it simple or a fancy mustard or quince paste when you’re trying to impress. If you’re in Brisbane, check out Chocolate Soldier which offers three epic cheese platters to choose from.
While not directly related to food, World Environment Day is an excellent opportunity to promote sustainable eating habits and support local Aussie farmers and producers. Encourage your team to embrace eco-friendly practices by choosing produce sourced ethically or incorporating more plant-based meals into your diets.

Satisfy your sweet tooth and treat yourself to a scoop (or two) of rich and creamy chocolate ice cream.

You can find it in a cone, a cup, or sandwiched between cookies for a timeless classic that never fails to delight.
Get your hands messy and embrace the deliciousness of National Corn on the Cob Day. Sink your teeth into juicy, buttery corn on the cob and reminisce the flavours of summer.
