Finding the Right Foods For Your Event

If you are planning an event, you will want to make sure that you have the perfect food on hand to serve to your guest. I used to always worry about serving the right food to my friends and family. However, all of my worries were quickly solved when my friend suggested a fantastic food supplier. The food supplier could deliver fish, red meat, wines, cheese as well as a selection of foreign dishes. When I served the food, my friends and family were all really impressed. I decided to start this blog to encourage other people to use their local food supplier.

Stocking Your Bar: Matching Drinks and Snacks

by Phillip Medina

Beer and ale have really caught on in Australia. People are no longer happy drinking larger which has very little taste. If you are considering opening a bar, you will probably want to serve a range of snacks alongside your beers. However, matching snacks to particular beers can be difficult to do if you don't have a little bit of knowledge of which flavours compliment each other. Below is a guide to the types of snacks which go down really well with some popular beers and ales.

Pilsner Lager

This Bohemian lager is one of the best known in the world. This lager is very clear, and each glass contains delicate flavours which make each sip a real pleasure. However, because of the subtle flavour of Pilsner lager, you should be careful that the snacks you serve alongside it do not overpower the taste of the drink. Salted peanuts or pretzels are a good option.


As the old advertising boards used to say, Guinness is good for you. While the Irish brewer may no longer be able to make this claim, it doesn't stop people from enjoying the coffee and cream flavours offered by this classic stout. If you are planning to serve snacks with a pint of Guinness, you should opt for cheese and crackers. The flavours and textures produced by cheese and crackers will perfectly compliment the stout.

India Pale Ale

India Pale Ale is light and crisp, which makes it the perfect drink to enjoy after a day in the hot Australian sun. The light flavours mean that an IPA is best mixed with a snack which has a bit of a kick to it. For example, you might want to serve it with a bowl of olives which has been marinated in oil and salt. Spicy Bombay mix nuts are also a fantastic choice when drinking an IPA.


While Porter is a very close relative to stout, it is a different drink which requires different snacks. Porter tends to taste sweeter than stout and so it is better matched to sweet snacks such as pieces of high-quality chocolate or dried fruit. If you want to be especially adventurous, you may wish to serve salted caramel or cake with a pint of porter.

If you would like to find out more about the perfect drinks and snacks for your bar, you should contact a beverage and snack food supplier.
