Come From Away


Newfoundland Toutons

Newfoundland Toutons

Since Come From Away is based in Newfoundland, Canada, it would be a shame not to include a native dish! Toutons are pieces of fried dough that are generally found on breakfast menus. All you need is a bit of leftover white bread dough and some hot oil. Then you can dress up your toutons with whatever you have in your kitchen. From eggs and bacon to maple syrup, the possibilities are endless.

Aeroplane Snacks

Aeroplane Snacks

Come From Away involves characters being stuck on an aeroplane for hours on end, and having nothing to eat other than aeroplane snacks. We suggest serving your guests typical aeroplane snacks like pretzels. These pretzels are seasoned, but you don’t have to go to the extra effort. If you want to make the snacks more aeroplane-esque, you could even make little baggies for your pretzels!

Dear Evan Hansen


Apple Pie à la Mode

Apple Pie à la Mode

One of the songs in Dear Evan Hansen references eating ice cream and visiting an apple orchard, so dining on apple pie à la mode is only fitting. It’s also a classically American dessert, perfect for a new American musical. You can either make your apple pie from scratch or pick some up at the supermarket. You can find a recipe for apple pie à la mode here!


Baseball Glove Cookies

Baseball Glove Cookies

Another song in Dear Evan Hansen is about breaking in a baseball glove, so baseball cookies would fit right in! These cookies require a fair bit of cookie decorating skills, but you can have some fun with it. Plus, they’re basic sugar cookies so the baking process won’t be too laborious. Find a recipe for baseball glove cookies here.


Groundhog Day


Sticky Buns

Sticky Buns

Sticky buns play a key role in both the film and musical version of Groundhog Day, so we’re including a simple recipe in this post. These sticky buns are the perfect Tony Awards party food if you need an extra dessert or want to have a breakfast-centred meal. Unlike many bread recipes, this recipe doesn’t require a bread machine, which means it’ll be much easier (and cheaper!) to make. Find the recipe by clicking here.

Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812

Russian Piroshki

Before the start of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, the ensemble throws boxed piroshki into the audience. This is meant to make the audience feel like they are in 19th-century Russia, where the show is set. The piroshki in the show are traditional Russian potato and onion piroshki, which is what is pictured above. You can make them at home by following this recipe!


Russian Vodka

Russian Vodka

Given that The Great Comet is set in 19th-century Russia, serving Russian vodka is only fitting. You don’t need a recipe for this one, but just head over to your local liquor store and pick up some decent quality Russian vodka!


Bonus: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


Willy Wonka Chocolate Bar


Willy Wonka Chocolate Bar

It may not be one of the Best Musical nominees, but that doesn’t mean that we need to exclude Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from our Tony Awards party food ideas! While you can’t find chocolate bars with real golden tickets in a shop, you can make them at home. We found a simple DIY Willy Wonka Chocolate Bar, complete with free printables. All you need to do is find some large chocolate bars, print off the labels, and start your DIY!

9 Delicious Summer Pudding Recipes You'll Really Love


The warmer weather is finally here, and with it comes more opportunities for outdoor parties. If you have a dinner party or other event coming up, you’re likely looking for some lighter dessert options to discuss with your event caterer. Traditional bread pudding or other heavy desserts just won’t cut it during the summer. That’s why we’re bringing you our favourite summer pudding recipes!

For the uninformed, summer pudding is a traditional British dessert made from simple ingredients you probably already have in your home. Most summer puddings are made from sliced white bread, fruit, and fruit juice. The dish works best if the bread you use has gone a bit stale so that it can hold its shape after being saturated with fruit juice.

Summer pudding has been around since the 19th century and is still popular today due to its flavour and how easy it is to put together. What’s best about summer berry pudding is the fact that you have to put it together a day or two before your party. This means that you don’t have to be running around your kitchen baking a dessert before your guests arrive!

If you’d like to take your event to the next level, we recommend sending out personalised invitations to your guests! On Bidvine, you can find a local invitation designer and printer who can make your guests feel special. Click to submit a request for bids from invitation designers on Bidvine:

Now, let’s get into our favourite summer pudding recipes from across the web!

3. Jamie Oliver Summer Pudding

Another iconic British chef, Jamie Oliver, has his own take on this pudding made with summer berries and white bread. Jamie’s recipe includes using the juice of an orange in your berry mixture. It also includes vanilla paste, which brings a special element to the recipe. In the recipe, he also slathers the bread with jam before adding it to the pudding form to prevent it from getting too soggy. We love that touch, and you could probably incorporate it into any recipe on this list!
