»Posted by on Feb 24, 2017 in Planning | 0 comments

When people think of food, they get all excited in anticipation of what’s to come. People these days appreciate good food and great conversation with friends and family. So, if you have visitors coming over, what better way to show friends and family that you are happy to see them than to treat to a lunch buffet?

Yeah, one might think that it is too expensive to go to a buffet but let us tell you that it is just a misconception. Buffet is not as expensive as you think. It could actually turn out cheaper than going to some fine dining restaurant. Also, your visitors will appreciate that you are making an effort to give them only the best that you could provide. Listed below are reasons why you should choose to take friends and family to a lunch buffet.

  • Going to a buffet is cheaper than having ala carte meals. Great ala carte meals are served in expensive fine dining restaurants and sometimes you are not even sure if your visitors will like the specialty. If one or two of them do not like what they have ordered, they will end up ordering another dish that will probably cost as much as the first one if not more. However, going to a buffet means that there are a variety of dishes that your guests can choose from. If they do not like what they have on their plate, they can just go and get another kind of dish without spending more.
  • Guests can have a taste of different flavours. If you have guests that are staying with you for only a couple of days, you want to show them different parts of the city and you would want them to have a taste of local food. But you can not do that by taking them to a cafe or restaurant that only serves ala carte meals. Which is why a lunch buffet is a great idea. You do not have to do it every single meal but twice or three times while they are in the area will serve as a great experience.
  • You can book a catering company to set up the lunch buffet in your house. Do you want to stay in your house, relax, and enjoy the food? You can make that happen by making arrangements with a catering company. There are cafes in your area that also caters so if you have a favorite, you can ask the management to set it up real nice in your own place instead. That way, your guests will be more comfy and everybody can sit down and chat.

3 Things You Need to Know and Decide When Planning an Event 

»Posted by on Feb 24, 2017 in Planning | 0 comments

Are you having a major event soon? How do you decide if you are going to do all the preparation or if you need to hire a professional food catering company? Simple. Do you think you can prepare food for more than twenty people? Have it all arranged, set it up like a professional, make sure there is no shortage of food, and have fun at the same time? If you can answer “yes” to all of these, then hats off to you. Clearly, you can handle all that and be the super woman in the kitchen that you were born to be. However, if there is even a slight doubt on your mind, you are better off paying a food catering professional to do all that for you.

Look for a catering company who is willing to work with your ideas and your budget. There are companies who want to do their own thing and are unwilling to work around a budget. They have a set of package deals that are non-negotiable. Finding one that is flexible to your budget is not that hard in especially that there are a lot of catering companies in the area.

Here are things you have to remember when it comes to food catering and hiring a professional catering company.

  • Decide whether you want to have a sit-down meal or do you want to have it buffet style. In a sit-down meal, all the food will be served to your guests without them needing to stand. You need to choose an appetizer, soup, salad, main dish and dessert. Everybody will be served the same food. In a buffet style, different types of appetizers, a salad bar, a couple of main dishes and dessert need to be set up on a long table. This is ideal if you have enough space. Remember that in a buffet, people will be lining up to get food so they need space to move around.
  • Be sure that you know the caterer’s specialty before you go ahead and close the deal. Some catering companies tell you that they are capable of serving certain types of food even if it is not their specialty. If you want to serve Italian food, for example, be sure that the catering company actually has experience serving it. Your mind would be put at ease more if you ask for a taste test before signing a contract.
  • Always plan your event ahead of time. Rushing to do all the work has never done anybody any good. Someone always forgets something and that could be disastrous. Work with your chosen food catering company and listen to their ideas as well. After all, they have been only in this business for years.
