What’s popular for catering in Adelaide in Spring?

Catering in Adelaide changes as the season changes.

There is a slow shift from the scrumptious hot finger food platters (Including Halal catering, Vegetarian and gluten free catering) towards the cold meat and salad platters. Afternoon tea remain popular as a large part of Spring is still actually cool.
