Once you’ve found the fascinator, put the bubbles on ice and cut out all the horse names for the sweepstake, it’s time to nail the nibbles.
If you’re hosting Melbourne Cup day at home, make it a little bit fancy by asking your guests to come dressed in spring racing theme, hats and all. As they arrive, they can draw from the sweepstake and grab a glass of sparkling.
With a nice mix of party appetisers and foods to share – you can create a spread that satisfies all your guests. Think share platters, rice paper rolls, spicy fried cauliflower bites, mushroom arancini balls, bite-sized sausage rolls and more. Think about dishes that you can make ahead of time, so you can focus on getting yourself ready.
You could also plan the menu ahead and ask guests to bring a dish. Send them the recipe you’ve chosen based on their cooking skill level. Here are some delicious race day ideas.
