Cricket Match Food

Do you like entertaining? Are you a foodie who also enjoys cricket? Then this blog is just for you! We thought we’d put together some inspirational meals or eats to accompany test versus a one dayer cricket match…

Test match 

For those readers who may not know, a test match lasts a maximum of five days (eight hours each including breaks) With this in mind you might consider some slow cooked recipes. With the weather still slightly chilly you can definitely get away with preparing a beef and vegetable curry or slow cooked beef ragu. Why not try some of these marinade recipes for a barbie. If you’ve never marinated meat before check out this marinating 101

Dreamy Cheese Platter
The most important thing for the perfect cheese platter is what you pair it with. Having some good South Australian local wines and craft beers go down amazingly well with the right cheeses but also choosing the right food items to go with the cheese. Here’s some examples of foods that pair well with cheese:
  • Gherkins
  • Nuts
  • Chutney
  • Ham
  • Crackers
  • Olives
Things that don’t pair well include
  • Anything spicy
  • Vegetables
  • Acidic fruits
