PETER ROWLAND MELBOURNE CUP CARNIVAL 2020

21 October 2020

Experience the magic of the Melbourne Cup Carnival at home with Peter Rowland.

This year is all about recreating your Race Day experience at home, and we’re making it easy for you to celebrate with our range of Spring Racing packs, delivered to your door. 

At Peter Rowland, it is no secret that we live and breathe racing season. While COVID has changed things up a little, there is no reason to put it all aside this year. If you’re used to being track side entertaining your clients, rewarding your staff, or socialising with family and friends, there is no reason to cancel tradition. Celebrate (safely) with your circle at home over Zoom, or at a socially distanced picnic in the park streaming all the action from your phone, and complete your Melbourne Cup Carnival experience with our range of hamper packs to suit every taste, style and budget.

Bubbles & Bites

One for the ladies who thrive on the Oaks Day experience, our ready-to-eat Bubbles & Bites hamper ranges from the all out (‘Indulge’ $330) to the sweet and simple (‘Pamper’ $110) options. Starting off with the famous Peter Rowland Chicken sandwich, the Indulge pack includes an incredible selection of sushi, seafood, proteins, salads, a cheese platter as well as house-made desserts to finish on a high. All packs are designed to serve 2. Easy and budget friendly.

‘BUBBLES & BITES’ SPRING RACING PACK

A Gourmet Gathering

If you are after something a little more robust on Cup Day, there’s no denying our ‘A Gourmet Gathering’ hampers will bust out all the flavours. Turkish rolls filled with smoked pastrami, Argentinian beef and chimichurri pies, roast beef salads and even prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella truffle toasties. With options to include a charcuterie board and cheese platter. A Gourmet Gathering packs all serve 2 and also comes in three budget-friendly options starting from $110.

ALL DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR READY TO CONSUME

Kids Carnival

Stakes Day is traditionally family day, and we definitely have not forgotten the little ones and the finishing touches. Young ones can get in on the action with our Kids Carnival pack. Cheesy popcorn, mini hot dogs and cornflake-crusted chicken strips are just some of the highlights, finishing off with not one but two desserts so even the most indecisive kid will be satisfied.

FOR THE YOUNG, OR YOUNG AT HEART.

Sweet Dreams

Our range of tarts, donuts, macarons and lamingtons are carefully hand-crafted exclusively for the racing season. Select from our mixed 20-pack of bite-sized desserts or purchase as individual flavours.

WRAP UP THE DAY WITH A ‘SWEET DREAMS’ DESSERT SPREAD OR OUR LOCAL CHEESE PLATTER

Chef’s Table

If fine dining and front row seats are your thing, our Chef ’s Table is a plated extravagance that is easy to finish, heat, and assemble; tips and recipes included.

Ideal if your usual Race Day experience includes dining in The Dining Room or The Byerley, this package will inspire memories of Flemington and all the glamour that goes with the day.

AN ELEVATED EXPERIENCE WITH OUR EASY-TO-FINISH ‘CHEF’S TABLE’. $265 PER COUPLE
