A Quick Guide for Choosing the Best Caterer for your event

From extravagant weddings to corporate dinners, there are few key factors that can make or break your event, and the most important one is the food. Flavoursome cuisine with top quality produce really helps to elevate any event and leave a lasting impression on the guests.

To make sure the money that you spend behind hiring a caterer does not go in vain, here’s a list of some quick tips that can help you choose the right people.

• Communication and responsiveness

It is important for the caterer to understand your vision and creatively adapt it on the menu. The food should be on par with the event that is being organised. Choose a caterer that communicates with you, asks questions regarding your choices and responds to your queries. A caterer who is keen to learn about the interests of his customer is more effective than the others.

• Menu options with food tasting

Most of the caterers have a set of standard menus to choose from. Choose a caterer that allows you not only to customise the menu but also make special requests. Moreover, having the option of food-tasting before the event is an added bonus. Food-tasting actually gives you a clear notion of the quality of food. It is standard practice to sample food before ordering for an event. You can even ask for wine pairings and get a glimpse of the presentation of the courses as well.

• Budget

Before you make any commitment, get a clear quote from the caterer regarding the budget. Often caterers do not include VAT or cost for linen and tableware within their quotes. It is always effective to get a detailed overview of the price from your caterer.

• Service

The caterer you hire should be able to provide adequate kitchen and catering staff to successfully service your event. Ask questions regarding the number of staffs available, make a rough analysis for the staff required for organising your sit-down dinners or buffets. Moreover, an experienced chef can ensure the quality of your food. Get an idea about the chef’s background and work history for a better insight.

• References

A catering company with good references and exceptional organising skills should always be the top priority. Make some calls or check online websites and social media to see reviews of most recent projects and other clients.

Before you begin the ordeal of finding the best caterer, make a clear plan and proceed in a coordinated manner. The caterer that you hire for the event will be representing you. So, hire wisely and follow these tips for the best result.
