Planning a Catering Menu

Posted by Mia Bingham Comments Off on Planning a Catering Menu

If you’re planning a function, you might want to contract the services of a professional event catering facility. They have the experience to handle a range of crowds and event types, and their services are invaluable for helping you plan the menu. In fact, many catering companies have devised standard menus to help simplify things for all involved. Here are some tips to help you with menu planning for your party or function.

The first thing to think about is what type of event you’ll be hosting. Will it be a formal night, a casual lunch, or a business breakfast? You should also take into account the number and type of gusts you’ll be entertaining. There are four main points to ponder with regard to your group:

  • 1. The frequency with which your guests attend similar events.
  • 2. The location of the event.
  • 3. The background and ethnic origin of your guests.
  • 4. Their profession and lifestyle.

The age range of the guests can also make a difference. If there is a nice mix older and younger participants, the menu can be varied to appeal to a wider variety of tastes. However, generally, the older the crowd, the less spicy or complicated the menu should be. A good option for a large crowd with a mixture of guests is a buffet.

If you’re having a plated meal, simplicity helps with the budget, planning and execution, but few different choices should always be offered. A good example might be: several different salad dressings: one traditional, one creamy, and one healthy option; two to three entrée options and two deserts, one light and one indulgent.

The length and purpose of the function can also serve as a guide for determining the type of meal. Short functions, say an hour or less, are best served by boxed lunches. An event that will run for one to two hours can be served by either a buffet or a plated meal, depending on the numbers. A corporate function where presentations or other work-related tasks will occur should have an easy menu that keeps well for the duration of the event. Any dietary restrictions should be taken note of ahead of time and relayed to the catering company.

Anoush Catering is an example of a catering company that can host a number of events. Whether you’re having a birthday party, a wedding, or a corporate function, it will take a lot of pressure off if you hire a professional catering company to handle the food and service.
