PLATTERS & GENERAL FAQ
How do I order?
Visit our online shop to order your delicious platter. You can choose whether you want us to deliver it to you or collect it yourself. For platters and delivery/self collection, please order at least 48 hours in advance. We work on a first come first served basis and limit our daily orders. Please book early to avoid disappointment as your chosen day/dates may be fully booked.
For customised orders and grazing table enquiries, please email us at email@example.com.
How can we make payment?
On our website we accept all major cards and Paypal. If you’re ordering via email or our contact page, we will invoice you on confirmation of your order. Follow the payment link on the invoice email for card/PayPal payments, or alternatively we can provide you with our bank transfer/PayNow details.

What is your usual choice of cheese?
Your cheese choice depends entirely on your preferences when placing the order. If you have no preferences, we will choose our favourites for you. Our cheese selection comes from farmhouses and artisanal cheese-makers, mostly European. Often the cheese is made on a small scale, using milk from a single herd of animals on the cheese-makers own farm. Our vegan plant-based cheese is made right here in Singapore.
Do you have corporate rates?
We don’t offer corporate rates; however, we are happy to explore competitive pricing on larger orders.
What type of crackers do you include?
We include a mix of gourmet crackers, including our house-made range, as well as those from our favourite artisanal suppliers. Our cracker selection will change from time to time.
How do you deal with allergies? Can you omit certain ingredients?
While we may be able to omit and/or label items containing possible allergens ahead of time, on request, there is a risk of cross-contamination. Our food is not prepared in an allergen-free environment. Anyone with a food allergy must notify us and should refrain from consuming our products.
What cold cuts do you have?
Our standard deli meat inclusions are Parma Ham (Italian), Chorizo and Salchichon (Spain). For non-pork options, you may choose chicken and beef cold cuts. We can also include halal-certified meat upon request.
Can the meat be separated from the other items in a platter?
Yes, of course, just let us know beforehand.
What is the difference between a palm leaf platter and a platter box?
Both options include the same beautifully presented items but are presented in two unique Lush Platters styles. Our eco-friendly palm leaf platters are wrapped in cellophane and ready to go for dinner parties or table setups. Our platter boxes are easy to transport and ideal for outdoor events, picnics or casual at-home grazing.
If I order platters from you, can you help me style my table?

Are cutlery/plates included?
