Those who favor overt attention to homewares are most likely no stranger to the art of entertaining. So, we’ll be covering tips on how to easily bring your home and your guests together — stylishly! This week, it’s all about the pre-dinner.
One of our favorite places in all of Sydney has to be Salt Meats Cheese. The boutique, gourmet shop/eatery is a foodies haven! With a carefully curated selection of local and imported items, the Alexandria location (just a few minutes from our store!) offers up a warehouse of items to fill your menu in style and authenticity — nothing is a product of mass production, everything is done first hand with serious TLC. Besides an incredible stock list chock full of genuine products and harcuterie meats and cheeses, visitors can also dine in over tasting plates, pizzas and a selection of pastas and Italian specialties. Yum.
Serve your teasers on beautiful platters! This white, solid wood board is available on our shop, here or in our St Peters store.
When you’re hosting a dinner, having some great pre-dinner finger foods over cocktails is a must. So, jump right into the evening with one of the Salt Meats Cheese fabulous, delicious cheese & meat platters. For our launch event, we had a few of these platters and — I’m not kidding — multiple people told us it was “the best cheese they have ever had.”

Also, Salt Meats Cheese has an incredible selection of salts! Serve a few options up in a beautiful pinch bowl (available in our store!) for additional flavors and accents over your appetizers.
Stand out: Beer! For dinners, beers are so often overlooked in favor of champagne and wine, but a good craft beer to add into your drink options will make many of your dinner friends extremely happy! We suggest Willie the Boatman beer for quality and taste that will leave everyone sipping and talking.
Until next week,
Mitch & Crystal
