Things You Should Know Before Hiring A Caterer!

Are you planning for a birthday party or any other event? If your answer to this question is ‘yes’ then you have to make the right food choices to satisfy your guests. Some people think that offering a huge variety of food items can make their guests happy. However, this is not really true! Remember, it is the choices, which you make matters while planning for a party. Understand the fact that each and everybody will have different food preferences. Few people love non vegetarian food, while few people prefer to have veggies. Hence, you need to plan for a good and balanced menu to make sure that all your guests are satisfied.

Why it is important to know the preferences of your guests?

Understand the preferences of your guests and speak with your caterer about it. Keep the below mentioned points in mind while choosing the menu for your guests.

  • Older groups usually prefer a very mild menu and hence you have to make sure that you add some simple and non-spicy food items to your menu.
  • Youngsters and the middle aged people loves spicy food, whereas the attendees who are more concerned about their health prefers less oil free and nutritious food.

Why it is good to provide multiple options to your guests?

Providing different menu choices can help your guests choose the food which they like. For example, you can provide 2 dessert options to your guests one healthy and one indulgent.  Check whether if any of your guests have food allergies or not and arrange some tasty food items for them accordingly. Do add some fresh seafood items or seasonal fruits as well to satisfy your guests.

If you are planning to add some international or region specific food to your event then let your caterer know which type of food you are looking for and they will arrange it for you. Ethnic catering usually include

  • Chinese/Asian/Japanese
  • Middle Eastern
  • Greek
  • French
  • Mexican
  • German
  • Italian
