Food has become a major player in today’s events. Say goodbye to the old chicken or beef entrées and make room for trendier, not to mention yummier, fare. Try to spice up the way you serve food at your next event with some of these suggestions.
“Prix-Fixe” Menu – Have a limited menu from which guests can order. Include an option of a soup or salad, a few appetizers, two to three options for a main course with side, and two options for dessert. Guests will enjoy having options the night of the event.
Heavy Appetizer Buffet – Allow guests to eat when they are hungry throughout the evening with a gourmet buffet. Keep things simple with five to ten appetizers and a few salads. This keeps the event flowing without having to block off time for a designated meal time.
Try to think out of the box when deciding on food. Gourmet barbecue, entrée salads, “mini’s”, and twists on the classics such as serving a bourbon brisket instead of “beef” or are easy ways to update your event. It’s the little changes that can have a big impact.
