    consumer-vote-award-2013rs.jpgFor the second year in a row Cosmic Cocktails & Catering has won the Consumer Choice Award and the Bill Thompson Memorial Award.

    We would like to thank everyone who voted for us as without your support we would not have been in the running.

    The Awards for Excellence is the most dependable and authoritative guide to Australia’s best restaurants and caterers, which has set the National benchmark for objectively recognising and promoting best practice.

    “The winners should be proud that they have been judged and rigorously reviewed amongst about 1,500 entrants in one of the most objective awards systems that looks at the entire dining experience, rather than a single food or service dimension”, said Mr Hart.

    In total Cosmic Cocktails & Catering were nominated for 5 Awards:

    Consumer Choice Award 2013 - Winner - Voted by the Pulbic as the best from the choice of Cafe, Restaurant and Caterer.

    Wedding Caterer - Finalist - Independently Judged at a Wedding held in June, the Winner was the Old Brewery who also won the Caterer of the Year.

    Employer of the Year 2013 - Winner - Nominated by our staff, this is awarded to an outstanding employer in the industry whose attitude and contribution to his or her profession has inspired public and colleagues confidence in the industry. 

    Product Supplier - Finalist - This was awarded to a product supplier whose contribution and service through his or her business has resulted in outstanding service to the industry. We entered as we have been suppling Slushy Machines to the industry for over 10 Years and Chocolate Fountains for over 5 years. The winner was Moffat an international kitchen equipment company.

    Employee of the Year 2013 - Finalist - We nominated Catherine as this award was for employees who have made an outstanding contribution to his or her profession, Catherine continually goes above and beyond her role. 

    Thank you once again for your support.

    Food Safety at Christmas

    It's that time of year again and the party season is in full swing, so here are some Food Safety Hints so you and your guests enjoy the festive season.

    • Avoid keeping food in the temperature danger zone between 5oC and 60oC where food poisoning bacteria grow best.
    • Keep hot foods steaming hot over 60oC and keep cold foods refrigerated at or below 5 oC.
    • Ready to eat food should always be defrosted in the fridge or microwave, never on the bench top, unless the manufacturer recommends that you do so.
    • You can defrost the turkey in the fridge, or ask your butcher to defrost it in the cool room but make sure it is completely defrosted in the centre before cooking. It’s OK to defrost a turkey on the benchtop, but you must make sure it is thoroughly cooked all the way through to make sure any bacteria are killed – use a meat thermometer to check that the temperature in the thickest part reaches 75 degrees Celsius.
    • Because stuffing slows down cooking and cooling, it is best cooked separately.
    • Before preparing food for Christmas make sure that there is enough room in the fridge to keep cold food at or less than 5oC.
    • If there is not enough room in the fridge, remember that soft drinks and alcohol,, jams, pickles and other acidic condiments do not require refrigeration to remain safe. Drinks can be kept cold in an esky with ice.
    • Prepare foods as close as possible to eating time.
    • Use separate cutting boards and utensils for raw meats and poultry and ready to eat foods.
    • Cook foods properly. All rolled & stuffed roasts, poultry, sausages, mince dishes and liver need to be fully cooked. Steaks, chops and solid pieces of meat can be eaten rare.
    • If you cook large amounts of food in advance, divide it into smaller portions or shallow containers, cover and place in fridge or freezer. Make sure there is good air circulation around the containers.
    • Refrigerate leftovers immediately after the meal.
    • Always store perishable leftovers in the fridge and use them up within 2 to 3 days.
    • When reheating food ensure that it is steaming hot all the way through (at least 75oC).
    • Your Christmas ham will keep several weeks with proper handling by removing it from its plastic wrap, covering with clean cloth soaked in water and vinegar so it doesn’t dry out, following any instructions on the packaging and storing it in the fridge below 5 degrees Celsius. Reduced salt hams are now becoming popular but will not last as long as conventional hams so follow instructions on the packaging.
    • Before preparing foods and between handling raw meat or raw chicken wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water and dry thoroughly.

    We wish you a Safe and Merry Christmas.

    We are a Gold License Caterer....click for more

    Cosmic Cocktails is now a Gold License Caterer.

     Cosmic Cocktails Gold License CatererCosmic Cocktails Gold License Caterer

    What is a Gold License Caterer?

    The Caterers Gold License has established minimum standards for caterers in the areas of hygiene in food preparation, the quality of cooking personnel and management, the existence of appropriate Workers Compensation and Product & Public Liability insurance. All of these are potential problem areas for unsuspecting customers of 'fly-by-night' businesses, and ensure that consumers are supplied with a quality product.

    Many people only use a caterer on average three times in their life, for a wedding, an anniversary or a special birthday, and one incident of food poisoning can spoil what should be a memorable occasion. Unfortunately, many people don’t know what to look for when selecting a caterer.

    A Gold License Caterer Must Have The Following

    1) Commercial Kitchen A legal requirement for preparation, adequate refrigeration for food storage, appropriate facilities for transportation of food and the handling of food on sale.

    2) Up-to-date and Relevant Insurances The caterer must provide protection of consumers by taking out public & product liability and worker compensation insurances.

    3) Training and/or experience Gold Licence Caterers must have or employ a senior person who have five years experience within the hospitality industry, in food preparation or catering management, along with relevant qualifications, a Safe Food Handling Certificate and Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate.

    4) Foodsafe (WA only) Food Handler Training Programme where all staff have at least basic food handler training; and FoodSafe practices are maintained to the satisfaction of the Environmental Health Officer.

    The Accreditation Process An independent Accreditation Board has been established in each state to undertake the approval of Gold License Caterers. The Board consists of representatives from governing industry bodies and State Accreditation Sub-Committee.

    When choosing your caterer, make sure you ask if they hold a Gold License.
