It goes without saying that the 2020 social calendar has had a serious shakeup. But, as the saying goes, the show must go on. And despite large events off the cards, the party hasn’t stopped — and that includes the Spring Racing Carnival.
Get ready to ramp up your at-home race day experience, thanks to Melbourne Racing Clubs’s newest Super Boxes, which bring some of their most-loved dining experiences straight to your door. With five delicious boxes on offer, get ready to raise a pinky at home this Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Carnival.
What Are They
In celebration of Neds Caulfield Guineas Day, Catanach’s Jewellers Blue Sapphire Stakes Day and Stella Artois Caulfield Cup Day, five unique Super Boxes have been created, featuring all of your favourite feeds and bevs from Caulfield’s springtime marquees.
Curated by Executive Chef Julian Robertshaw, the Super Box is a home delivered hamper of delectable food and beverages, delivered to your door on the race day. So, you can forget about slaving away in the kitchen and lugging your booze through the bottleo and relax at-home with a champagne in hand while all the hard work is done for you.
What’s In The Box
All the boxes are suitable for two people and are loaded with tasty snacks and drinks. The Stella Artois Super Box features a selection of gourmet savoury and sweet grazing items and ice-cold Stella Artois with Stella Chalices. The Cocktail Super Box is loaded with pre-batched cocktail mixes, garnishes and even a cocktail shaker — perfect for those wanting to step up their drinks game.
The Cellar Door Super Box is a wine lover’s dream, featuring a spread of tantalising grazing items and perfectly matched premium wines from Penfolds and Petaluma. The Moët & Chandon Super Box is made for champagne enthusiasts with delicious sweet and savoury snacks and Moët &Chandon Brut Impérial NV. For those wanting to go all out, the Dom Perignon Super Box needs no introduction. Boasting a selection of similarly delicious bites and a premium bottle of Dom Perignon Vintage Cuvee, you’ll be more than set for the day ahead.
