Catering for the massive crowd that celebrates at Greyville Racecourse in Durban on Vodacom Durban July Day is an operation of monumental proportions for Gold Circle and the many private catering organisations in the city who help to feed the hungry and thirsty patrons who occupy the formal restaurants and those who enjoy the day in picnic sites and the massive marquee village at the course.
Estimating the privately arranged catering on the day is impossible, but Gold Circle’s catering department estimates that the turnover from their own catering effort on the day, together with eLan Properties Gold Cup Day, makes up half the annual catering turnover at all Greyville racemeetings.
Plans are in place to ensure that sufficient stocks are on hand and that the required staff compliments will be available to attend to the thousands Gold Circle will be responsible for in its various sit-down venues where either full lunch and dinner or buffet meals will be served.
For these guests alone a total in the region of 30 000 meals will be provided and for this purpose no less than 40 chefs will be working long hours in the kitchens.
With no race meeting in the week leading up to Vodacom Durban July day, some of the preparation will be started earlier in the week, but the real operation moves into gear on the Friday when the staff will be working through to 7pm.
Then it is a short break to replenish their own energy and enthusiasm and its back to work in the early hours of Saturday morning when it all shifts into overdrive. The work tempo increases at this stage when the bulk of the food preparation takes place and by the time racegoers start arriving at the course the scene is very much set for another bumper feast to compliment the exciting racing on the day.
